    Major events are now captured in far more detail than ever before, thanks to the vast number of cheap video cameras out there. The Internet makes it easier than ever to share these defining moments too.

    TwoFourtySixPM.com is testament to this shift. It displays 15 YouTube clips of Friday’s earthquake in Japan, playing simultaneously to show how citizens around the country captured it. Forget the video – it’s the noise that will probably affect you the most. Oh, it’s pretty processor intensive too, so close down anything you don’t need to run in order to make the most of it.
