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. ..."

Apple may change China distribution after fraud case

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2015-01-06

An Apple distributor in Beijing recently ran off with 60 million yuan (US$11.74 million) of down payments and term payments from many downstream distributors, reports the IT Times.

The case, apparently one of simple financial fraud, stands to have quite a big effect on Apple. The company may subsequently dump all of its intermediate agents in three years after adjusting its distribution network.

Citing a business insider surnamed Xiong, the IT Times said it is

not surprising that the distributor ran off. Thanks to his special links with Apple's general agents in China, the distributor had no problem acquiring iPhone 6 stocks when other distributors were short of the handset, Xiong said, adding that this is why many distributors made down payments to obtain the iPhone 6.

The situation reflects why Apple has already made changes to its distribution network in China. Two years ago, the original Apple agents in China–Founder Century, ECS Technology, Highly and Changhong Jiahua–began dropping out of the distribution network, voluntarily or involuntarily. Apple began instead to foster its own authorized distributors and directly operated retail stores. With the rapid growth in Apple's own sales channels, major intermediate agents that enjoyed abundant supplies and brisk sales in the past have been feeling the pinch.

It is obvious that Apple is seeking to get rid of its intermediate agents in China, the IT Times said. It said retail stores now have a bigger say in Apple product distribution. For instance, hot items like the iPhone 6 (64G, 128G) are now delivered first to Apple's own stores, app stores or below-the-line retail stores rather to agents, IT said.

Agents and intermediate distributors are something of the past, one unnamed source said, adding that Apple very likely will not need such distribution channels in China in three years time.
