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. ..."

Acer has launched its Iconia B1, the lowest-price tablet in the market in present, at the US Consumer Electronics Show. The Taiwanese PC maker hopes the tablet will attract first-time tablet users and children and help extend its market share in the increasing competitive tablet market.

The tablet is priced at between US$129-$149 but will be lowered to US$99 with packages in certain markets. The device runs on MediaTek chips and has a 1014x600 display and 512B RAM, according to tech website Engadget.

The price of the tablet is set well below other budget tablets such as Amazon's Kindle Fire and Nexus 7, both priced at US$199. Acer has set the tablet's price US$50 lower to challenge the bottom line of the market and if the price has an impact on its rivals, they may lower their prices or produce similar models in the future, according to Commercial Times, our Chinese-language sister paper.

Acer president Jim Wong said the tablet will hit the Asian and South American markets first in January or February. Although market analysts feel many may be put off by the tablet's low specifications, Wong believes its performance is as good as its closest rivals and users will not see a significant difference.

Wong also voiced his support for Microsoft's latest operating system Windows 8, though he said the US software giant's marketing strategies do not help users understand the touchscreen experience. The Taiwanese company will set up user experience centers through its distributors around the world to promote the touch functions of the platform.

Acer also announced it will embed its new data storage service Acercloud in all Acer PCs, tablets and Android-based smartphones from the second quarter this year. The service allows users to share and manage their digital files across iOS, Window and Android platforms for free.
