The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Cyberspies penetrate electrical grid: report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

The spies came from China, Russia and other countries, and were believed to be on a mission to navigate the U.S. electrical system and its controls, the newspaper said, citing current and former U.S. national security officials.

The intruders have not sought to damage the power grid or other key infrastructure but officials said they could try during a crisis or war, the paper said in a report on its website.

"The Chinese have attempted to map our infrastructure, such as the electrical grid," a senior intelligence official told the Journal. "So have the Russians."

The espionage appeared pervasive across the United States and does not target a particular company or region, said a former Department of Homeland Security official.

"There are intrusions, and they are growing," the former official told the paper, referring to electrical systems. "There were a lot last year."

The administration of U.S. President Barack Obama was not immediately available for comment on the newspaper report.

Authorities investigating the intrusions have found software tools left behind that could be used to destroy infrastructure components, the senior intelligence official said. He added, "If we go to war with them, they will try to turn them on."

Officials said water, sewage and other infrastructure systems also were at risk.

Protecting the electrical grid and other infrastructure is a key part of the Obama administration's cybersecurity review, which is to be completed next week.

The sophistication of the U.S. intrusions, which extend beyond electric to other key infrastructure systems, suggests that China and Russia are mainly responsible, according to intelligence officials and cybersecurity specialists.

While terrorist groups could develop the ability to penetrate U.S. infrastructure, they do not appear to have yet mounted attacks, these officials say.

Microsoft: Windows 7 Downgradeable to XP

Techtree News Staff, Apr 07, 2009 1532 hrs IST

Microsoft s beloved operating system Windows XP might just get another extension. With Windows 7, the software giant Microsoft and PC makers will offer Windows 7 downgrade options. Under the downgrade option, PC buyers would be able to downgrade Windows 7 to Vista or even Windows XP. Of course, there would be certain conditions applicable.

Microsoft s Windows 7 looks good enough to repair Windows Vista s woes. While the public beta is available and being used, Microsoft is rumored to be releasing Windows 7 s release candidate this summer. AppleInsider reported that HP got the green signal for extension of rights to sell Windows XP loaded systems till April 30, 2010. Also, HP would be offering volume-license users the option to downgrade to Windows XP.

Mary Jo Foley, who writes on All About Microsoft Blog, questioned Microsoft on the Windows XP downgrade rights. Foley stated that Microsoft will offer downgrade rights to users for downgrading Windows 7 to earlier Windows versions. So, basically, users can downgrade Windows 7 to Windows XP, Windows 2000, or even Windows 98.

Getting back to the HP-related downgrade arrangement, the Microsoft spokesperson warded off the possibility of HP-exclusive downgrade rights. Microsoft said that the downgrade policies will be applicable to all main OEM partners and not as a special arrangement. Microsoft s spokesperson stated, No dates have been announced for the end of Windows 7 downgrade right facilitation to Windows XP.

To be noted, Microsoft and its OEM partners offer downgrade rights on only two Windows Vista versions Business and Ultimate. Either of these versions could be downgraded to XP Professional. Not to be forgotten that the OEMs charge customers a price for the downgrade. Customers buying new machines with Windows XP downgrade from Windows Vista this summer would also be eligible for free Windows 7 upgrade.

It is interesting that people are actually concerned about downgrade options even before the release date of Windows 7 is announced. On the other hand, Apple offers upgrades to their Mac OS X operating systems, and a preview of the Snow Leopard is expected at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2009 starting June 8.

It would be unfair to compare these options since a majority of corporate customers are concerned about supporting their infrastructure, services, and products with multiple operating systems from the same company. Yet another wait and watch game for customers to check out what s in store with regards to Windows 7.

Microsoft launches new servers for small companies

Reuters, Wed Apr 1, 2009 9:21am EDT

SEATTLE, April 1 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) on Wednesday launched a new range of server systems for small companies, scaling down its existing offerings to attack one of the fastest-growing segments of the business computing market.

The world's largest software company is launching into the market for small companies as competitors introduce cheap, open-source alternatives to its relatively costly Windows-based servers, and the use of pirated Windows products proliferates.

Microsoft's new product line, called Windows Server 2008 Foundation, can accommodate up to 15 users and will cost less than $1,000 for the hardware and software combined, the company said.

A server is essentially a powerful computer that provides services to other computers. A doctor's office, for example, might use a server to allow staff to share files, access the same systems or maintain a website.

Analysts reckon the low-end server market for products costing less than $1,000 has grown four times faster than any other price range for comparable single processor servers.

Microsoft's new offering is a stripped down version of its Windows Server family of products, which tend to be beyond the price range of small businesses.

Microsoft said Windows Server 2008 Foundation software will be sold already installed on machines sold by computer makers such as Acer Inc (2353.TW), Dell Inc (DELL.O), Hewlett-Packard Co (HPQ.N) and IBM Corp (IBM.N).

The computer makers will set the prices for their products, which may vary by country. (Reporting by Bill Rigby, editing by Maureen Bavdek)
