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. ..."

Taiwan's Acer lost it's world No. 3 title with a 10% global market share to Dell in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to local research firm Digitimes Research.

Acer shipments dropped by more than 15% annually in the fourth quarter of last year due to rising inventory levels, leading to the loss of the spot to the US rival, the Taipei-based firm said.

In fifth place was Taiwan's Asustek Computer, behind Acer by only 0.2 percentage points, the firm noted in a statement released on Jan. 11.

China's Lenovo Group, on the other hand, shipped a record high in the company's history of 8 million notebook computers in the fourth quarter due to strong overseas market performance, but it did not beat Hewlett-Packard to the world's No. 1 position, given HP's steady performance over the last two quarters, the Taiwanese research firm explained.

Global notebook computer shipments reached 48.51 million devices in the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of 2.5% from the third quarter, because of Windows 7 sales at year-end, it said. The figure is better than its estimated 0.7% increase, it added.

Global shipments in 2012, however, reached only 194 million devices, posting a negative 4.5% year-on-year growth, according to the firm.

Meanwhile, global shipments of personal computers for 2012 fell 3.2% to 352.42 million devices from a year earlier as smartphones and tablet computers stole the market spotlight, market information advisory firm International Data Corp. said on Jan. 11.

Acer was the fourth-largest PC vendor worldwide with 33.49 million global shipments of PC devices, while Asustek finished in fifth place with 24.13 million devices.

HP remained the world's largest PC vendor in 2012, shipping 58.13 million devices, while Lenovo ranked as the second-largest PC vendor last year, shipping 52.45 million devices.

Dell was third, with 38.72 million devices.
