Maybe to an elephant the arm is like a trunk which is normally on the front of the animal. So from the elephant's perspective it may seem as if she is paying attention to that bucket because the large scale body language inicates she is facing it. The fact that she is standing facing forward may not be especially relevant.
A pully system could allow even a child to raise a great big bag of rocks, pulling a long rope hand over hand (against a safety ratchet) which would still be faster than winding up a torch. It might be better if the mechanical stuff was all made locally and the only thing they has to buy was the efficient LED/dynamo component.
I chose mine for combination of size, HD, LED backlighting and thickness (for wall hanging) and ended up with a Samsung smart TV in the Jan sales.
For the detractors- I got the WiFi dongle to and I have to say iPlayer app works surprisingly well even in HD. I have an ordinary broadband connection (in Devon miles from any city). Frankly, I was a bit gobsmacked as I was expecting it to be fairly crap. I only use it occasionally, however, as I dont have unlimited bandwidth so watch mostly from a hard disk recorder.

The wonderful Firefox "CustomizeGoogle" plugin goes some way towards addressing these conserns. It can anonymise google cookies and suppress sending cookies to google analytics.
It also gives you the ability to permanently filter out annoying sites from your search results with a single click. Brilliant.
