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. ..."

Wi-Fi iPhone May Make It to Chinese Market

From China Realtime Report:

Apple’s belated launch of the iPhone in China last year was dampened for many users by the discovery that the handset did not have Wi-Fi capabilities, but a new Wi-Fi-enabled Chinese iPhone may finally be on the horizon, according to a Chinese government testing body.

The State Radio Monitoring Center, which handles radio frequency testing for handsets released in China, posted an approval notice for a handset by Apple Inc. with wireless Internet capabilities. The listing, dated April 26, doesn’t provide enough information to tell whether the device is an iPhone 3GS or anewer model, but says the device includes China’s homegrown wireless standard, WAPI.

An employee who answered the phone at the testing center on Thursday confirmed that the listing means the device has been approved, but declined to answer any other questions, saying she was not informed on any other issues. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

IPhones currently officially sold in China do not have Wi-Fi because government regulations USED to force handset makers to use China’s homegrown wireless standard, WAPI, instead (even though consumers predominantly use Wi-Fi). Officials changed the regulation last year to allow Wi-Fi on handsets on the condition that the handsets also had WAPI capabilities, but apparently not in time for Apple to have one approved. People who want iPhones with Wi-Fi in China currently must buy them from overseas, or from one of the many sellers here who bring them in from other markets and resell them for as much as $840.

Apple’s partner China Unicom estimated that only 5,000 Wi-Fi-less iPhones were sold in the first four days after the devices launch last October, a tiny number compared to other markets, especially when considering that China is the largest mobile market by subscribers. By comparison, Apple sold 270,000 iPhones in the 30 hours after the first model went on sale in the U.S. in 2007, and in South Korea, where Apple had plenty of competition, 65,000 pre-orders were taken when the iPhone debuted last December.

Adding Wi-Fi could help the iPhone’s reception, as could Apple’s plan to open 25 more stores in China. China Unicom Chief Executive Chang Xiaobing has also indicated that if conditions permit, the companies may lower the prices for the handset in China, which are currently $730 to $1,020. With Google, a competitor of Apple’s in the mobile space, on shaky ground with Chinese authorities after a spat over censorship and cybersecurity, perhaps the iPhone still has a fighting chance to crack the Chinese market.
