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. ..."

Google launches low-cost smartphone in Africa

Mobile users in six African nations are being targeted by Internet giant Google, which has launched an inexpensive smartphone with them in mind. The Android One program is designed for easy connectivity.

Deutsche Welle, 19 Aug 2015


Life without a smartphone is unthinkable for many people today. The electronic devices do everything from helping us to plan our day and keeping us connected with friends and family, to allowing us to buy things online. They can even lock our doors for us when we're being too lazy.

According to a study cited by search giant Google, 23 percent of mobile phones in Africa will be connected to the Internet by the end of this year. Now the company is trying to expand its services in six African countries, including Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Kenya with a combined population of 379 million.


The phone, which will operate on Google's Android One program is called the "Hot 2." It has been manufactured by the company Infinix and is being marketed in Africa through local sellers and websites such as Jumia.

Affordable technology

"I was given one of them. It looks cute," says Gladys Nwachukwu, business development manager at Mobility Arena, a Nigerian blog that ranks and evaluates mobile phones and technical devices.


The phone costs between 17,500 and 19,500 Naira (between 79 and 88 euros, $87 and $97), Nwachukwu tells DW, a fair price for a device that comes with such great specifications.

The phone's features, including a quad-core processor, dual SIM slots and an FM radio tuner, are tailor-made for places with low-speed Internet and power shortages. The device updates software immediately and has an extended battery life. The phone's YouTube app is designed to allow users to download videos to watch offline later - a handy feature when web access is unreliable -, Google's Vice President Caesar Sengupta said in a statement.

From Asia to Africa

These features are the reason why the phone has been so successful in Asian markets. Before the Android One, users had to make do with an unsatisfactory experience if they bought a smartphone, Mithun Mohandas, senior reviewer at Digit, an Indian technology website, told DW. Google's program, Android One, ensures that smartphone users buying any device have a satisfactory experience with the software.

'Value for money'

The fact that the phones are relatively inexpensive makes them even more attractive. Most smartphones from different companies have a "fluid-like user interface which enhances user experience to a certain extent," Mohandas said. An Android One phone is essentially a stripped-down version of such "fancy" phones and uses fewer resources, increasing the efficiency of phone apps, he adds.

However, it remains to be seen whether Google's latest presentation will be as successful in Africa as it has been in India, Indonesia and other Asian countries.

People have been responding well and saying that the phone "is good value for money," Gladys Nwachukwu of Mobility Arena said. "We are excited to have a low-budget phone," she added.
