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. ..."

Nokia Pledges Easy Payment for Phone Apps in Indonesia

Jakarta Globe, Shirley Christie | November 23, 2010

Jakarta. Struggling mobile phone giant Nokia plans to allow cellphone operators to bypass credit cards and deduct the cost of downloaded applications directly from users in Indonesia next year.

Dubbed “operator billing,” it makes it easier for software vendors to sell applications directly to users through Nokia’s Ovi Store without the hassle of credit cards.

Nokia also promises a minimum 60 percent revenue share for developers, considerably more than many current arrangements.

During a press briefing in Jakarta last week, Kenny Mathers, head of developer relations for Forum Nokia Asia Pacific, said the company’s Ovi Store was the only mobile application store in the world to offer operator billing.

With low credit card penetration often cited as a barrier to customers buying mobile applications in Indonesia, Nokia said operator billing should eliminate that hurdle, even for prepaid users, since the cost of applications can be deducted directly from a user’s mobile phone credit.

“Our research shows that two out of three people choose to pay with operator billing instead of credit card billing,” Mathers said.

Nokia began the program with the launch of the Ovi Store in May 2009. It has deals with 99 cellphone providers in 29 countries to offer operator billing.

However, the company refused to say which cellphone operators it would be working with in the Indonesian market or give an exact date for the launch of the service here.

Local software start-up Swamedia, which currently offers its Shopping Planner and two other applications for free through the Ovi Store worldwide, hopes operator billing will allow it to generate online revenue.

Deded, Swamedia’s account manager, says the company is currently just seeking global recognition on the Ovi Store but will soon start charging customers for its applications.

For Nokia, giving developers a bigger share of the revenue pie is a way to try and reverse the ongoing slide of its Symbian operating system, which has seen an 8 percent market share decline in the last year, largely due to the rise of Google’s open source Android system.

In the third quarter of 2010, Symbian had a 36.6 percent market share worldwide, compared to 25.5 percent for Android.
