I could realize the advantage of technology in the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament for the first time during Italy vs Costa Rica match, which was played a couple of days back. In the  2nd half, Costa Rica's  Bryan Ruiz headed the ball off the bottom of the crossbar...The ball hit the crossbar, bounced just inside the goal line and then bounced back to play. By naked eye it was very difficult to judge if it was a goal or not. But the referee did not have any issues as the "Goal Line" system quickly confirmed the goal. Don't know if any other matches also could make use of the "Goal Line" technology.

Technology doesn't replace people. Maradona's "hand of god" was seen by many and was available on replays right there with those days of technology. Referee decision is not to be overruled by any technological advance - it's the "people and procedures" domain.

Zidane cannot be excused by any audio recording. Provocations are part of the sport psycho war and any player of World Cup level should know it.

This technology was used for the America's Cup (won by Oracle), it completely changed the way this kind of boat race could be seen, especially for the non-expert watchers. It definitely made the races much more attractive.

Hackers can then become tools for the bookies to manipulate the results!

Using technology to help refrees is a god idea. But in these highly popular sports, technology can never fully replace human refree. But its really remarkable and futristic.

Wow, really a great place for any hacker to prove their strength. But at the same time these technologoes seems to take over all the fun of referee errors :)

Everytime we add something to make our life easier, it is an opportunity for a hacker to take advantage of.  I hope they kept that in mind during the design of the system.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
