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)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

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. ..."

Kenya cuts off signal to counterfeit China phones

Chinese counterfeit smartphone makers face challenges ahead in Africa as Kenya began cutting off the internet connection of counterfeit smartphones in October to reduce crime and other African nations also pledged to ban the phones.

Four Kenyan telecom operators cut off their signals to 1.5 million counterfeit phones in the country on Oct. 1, part of the Kenyan government's effort to protect intellectual property rights, trade and mobile phone user safety. Uganda and other African nations have said they will follow suit, which is expected to affect Chinese counterfeit phones makers who have been major sources of the phones on the continent.

The Communication Commission of Kenya said the counterfeit phone has become a criminal tool since they were smuggled into the country and untraceable. Their signals are often unstable and they cannot guarantee the security of mobile payment.

The Kenyan government has extended the cut-off twice to allow users to switch to genuine phones but has set Oct. 1 as its final deadline. Mobile brands such as Nokia and Samsung provided discounts a for million Kenyans who replaced their counterfeit phones for genuine ones, recycling and reusing the parts of these counterfeit phones.

The four operators now will ask users to verify their identities and check their phone's IMEI number, an unique identification number on each phone. Counterfeit phones do not have the number so that the operator can distinguish them from the genuine model and block the signal.

Some of the counterfeit phones were still able to receive signals by the afternoon on Oct. 2, according to Li Lianxing, the correspondent of China Daily in Africa. Locals said they can understand that the policy will be good for the market but were also concerns that many people, especially college students, cannot afford a genuine phone amid the the economic downturn, according to Li.

Counterfeit mobile phones contain risks but their cheap price makes them popular, especially in developing economies, says Zeng Jianqhiu, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

To stem smuggling and tax evasion, many countries have taken action against counterfeit mobile phones. India has limited phone sales while Libya also monitors sales in the market.

Li Yi, executive vice president of China Mobile Internet Industry Alliance, said Chinese phones makers also hope African and Latin nations can get rid of counterfeit mobile phones to make room for Chinese mobile brands such as Huawei and ZTE. He suggested the counterfeit phones makers to establish their own brands in order to sustain their businesses in the future.
