I have not gone to the website to look, but if you already have a gorilla pod, can you just buy the rest of it separately? Such as the suction cup set or the wheel set?

250 megabits is roughly 31 megabytes of data over a 24 hour period. They must be using jpg compression to make it worth while. That is not very much data at all. It is about 2.9Kb per second or 2900 baud. That was the speed of data on earth in about 1986. I suspect the actual speed might be higher but there are probably some blackout periods through the day where the orbiting relays do not line up well and they can't transmit at full speed.

I suspect this photo is an example of photoshop 101 in England and there are probably 1000's or tens of 1000's of photos that are that similar. If this was me, I would have dug up many examples that would have preceded the date of the image thought of as copyright protected.
