Neither does Nasa... If you live in USA you pay taxes to Nasa
They can get crystal clear shots from the surveyor, or whatever it's called - brain lock, of the Rover's parachute, and even the tire tracks it has made, but they cannot get a clear image of Cydonia or the face. Plus, note that some photos reveal clouds in dusty red tinged, but blue sky. Atmosphere? Funny stuff if you ask me. 
You're internet uses a $20 internet router to transmit the wi-fi signal. This rover uses a powerful antenna signal which is transmitted to satellites in space which send the signal back to NASA hq.
There's microbial life below the surface of Mars.
You should get your internet radioed in. Make sure it's X-band too (by which I do not mean an X-men rock band, although that might work too).
julius jumao-as
even it cost trillion dollars no invention still can reach internet connection with that far.
The Connection
so true man
Digital cameras can only see black and white, no matter what, it's how they work. They use filters to figure out colours (yes, your digital camera does that too), but using filters reduces the detail and accuracy of an image, and takes longer to transmit, and they don't give a crap about transmitting "pretty" images, they cared about making sure their rover was in a good state. Seriously I want to punch so many commenters on these Curiosity updates for being so ignorant.
Lol, the original footage of everyone jumping for joy in the Mars Rover control room was signaled by some guy that thought he wasn't on camera... Mars Rover is fake!
