About 15 minutes later, a phalanx of police cars descended upon an intersection a few miles away, blockading dozens of shocked motorists — including Mr. Paetsch, whom the authorities had tracked with a GPS device buried in the $26,000 he was accused of stealing.

Forrester survey finds first ever decline in people 'using the internet,' but a changing notion of 'being online'

THIS QUOTE EARLY maybe
According to Forrester's Gina Sverdlov, however, that's not due to a shift back towards TV or other activities, but to a changing notion of what "being online" means to individuals. As she puts it, "given the various types of connected devices that US consumers own, many people are connected and logged on (automatically) at all times," and that "the internet has become such a normal part of their lives that consumers don't register that they are using the internet when they're on Facebook, for example."

For the first full year since 2001, personal computer sales are projected to decline in 2012. IHS iSuppli shared its data on Wednesday, saying the PC market will see 1.2 percent fewer sales this year as compared to 2011. That means the total number of PC sales will fall from 352.8 million last year to 348.7 million by year end. This shouldn’t be a surprise: the perfect storm of connectivity, hardware advances in mobile devices and more capable mobile apps are attacking PC sales on all fronts.

Significant mobile device growth to come: Over the last two years, the U.S. mobile video audience increased 77% to 36 million viewers. The U.S. smartphone market is relatively mature, but globally, we are still early in the smartphone revolution. Plus, tablet sales are expected to explode in the coming years. More mobile devices means more mobile video consumers, and more mobile video consumption.

Small cells (miniature base stations) are already popular among mobile operators. However, we need more of them, everywhere — indoors and outdoors, in residences and in enterprises. And we need all the familiar flavors — 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi (often all integrated in a single box) — in all the different forms, including user installed femtos, operator installed picos, metros, relays, remote radio heads, distributed antenna systems, etc.

Mobile is more and more popular. And News.
Half of all U.S. adults now have a mobile connection to the web through either a smartphone or tablet, significantly more than a year ago, and this has major implications for how news will be consumed and paid for, according to a detailed new survey of news use on mobile devices by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) in collaboration with The Economist Group.

If a thousand transmitters
transmit, the “waves” don't destroy each other; no information is destroyed. The only thing that
happens is that it becomes harder and harder for receivers to figure out who is saying what to whom as
more transmitters operate next to each other. The limitation, or the real economic scarcity, is
computation and the (battery) power to run calculations.
9
The regulatory model of command and
control was created at a time when machine computation was practically impossible. Exclusive
licensing was a way to use regulation to limit the number of transmitters in a band, so as to make it
possible for very stupid devices to understand who was saying what. The economic models on which
auctions are based were developed in the 1950s and 1960s, when computation was still prohibitively
expensive. Practically, thinking about “spectrum” as a scarce commodity still made sense in that era.

About the 2012 OECD report M2M
Governments can set large-scale M2M users free by giving them access to wholesale markets. by changing the rules so that large M2M users can have access to numbers and SIM-cards, just like telecom companies. This will open up the market, break lock-ins, make large M2M users responsible for their own innovation and create a competitive market for roaming for M2M services.
Liberalisation will be a major paradigm shift, and might lead to billions in savings and new services."

IPv6 and IoT

But let's just pay lip service to IPv4 and IPv6 first.

IPv4 is the 32-bit system designed to identify unique connections to the network (for the most part, the Internet) and in its 12-digit form (e.g. 172.16.254.1) it provides just over four billion addresses.

IPv6 being 128-bit is written in hexadecimal and so gives a maximum of 340 undecillion possible addresses.

Undecillion is 10 to the power of 36 and it comes in just under duodecillion (10 to the power of 39) tredecillion (10 to the power of 42) and quattuordecillion (10 to the power of 45).

So what you say? What will an undecillion network addresses give us?

Internet of Things is about connecting smart objects that create, use and store data. By attaching or embedding tiny chips inside any objects, basic information (when and where an object was made, who designed it, where it has been, its current physical location etc.) can be obtained and shared. Internet-connected objects can also communicate with one another and exchange data with no human intervention. Many everyday household objects already possess embedded microchips and have self-monitoring, analysis and reporting capabilities as well as the ability to control or monitor other devices and even monitor peopl

These intelligent objects will usually communicate autonomously via an automatic and seamless Internet connection (Wi-Fi or 3G).

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), sensors, robotics and nanotechnology will make processing power increasingly available in smaller and smaller packages so that networked computing dissolves into the fabric of things around us.

Golden Gate Bridge
Sensors check San Francisco's famous landmark for damage
The result could mean remote controls embedded in clothing, cars that alert their driver when they have developed a fault, managers who check on workers through the RFID devices embedded in their phones, and bags that remind their owners that they have forgotten something.

There are already examples of the technology in action. Tiny sensors are used to check San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge for structural damage and in coffee beans in Brazil for quality control.

Smart grid, home automation, and Internet.

Smart Grid

Home automation technologies are viewed as integral additions to the Smart grid. The ability to control lighting, appliances, HVAC as well as Smart Grid applications (load shedding, demand response, real-time power usage and price reporting) will become vital as Smart Grid initiatives are rolled out. Green Automation is the term coined to describe energy management strategies in home automation when data from smart grids is combined with home automation systems to use resources at either their lowest prices or highest availability, taking advantage, for instance, of high solar panel output in the middle of the day to automatically run washing machines.
