Compression of Random data [ edit ]
https://sites.google.com/site/rubikcompression/strictly-long and more explination on that sites home page. Anyone up for an independent code up? Given the "logic" of the usual response, an independent coding is the most obvious way to eliminate accusations of trickery. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 ( talk) 00:23, 31 March 2014 (UTC)
Stellar brilliance [ edit ]
Lossless compression reduces bits by identifying and eliminating statistical redundancy... Lossy compression reduces bits by identifying unnecessary information and removing it.
What is the difference between
and identifying and eliminating statistical redundancy ? identifying unnecessary information and removing it

A free lunch, really? Sure it's in context but is it really contributing anything useful to the article?
