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. ..."

Lenovo seeks takeover of IBM's low-end server division

Lenovo, China's leading IT firm, is reportedly seeking to acquire the lower-end server division of IBM with an offer worth up to US$2.5 billion.

The move follows the takeover of IBM's PC division for US$1.25 billion (10 billion yuan at the then exchange rate) in 2005, which despite subsequent controversy helped propel Lenovo to the world's largest PC maker in 2013.

Industry insiders characterize Lenovo's strategy as one of "eating leftovers," or the acquisition of marginal lines of market leaders before restructuring operations to make up for their own weaknesses or facilitating their entry into a brand new field. The main goal of Lenovo, say insiders, is acquisition of technologies, thereby saving R&D time for developing the capability of business solutions and deployment in the IT service sector.

Lenovo has adopted the strategy in order to facilitate its entry into the IT service sector, breaking the development bottleneck facing the company and other PC giants such as HP and Dell.

Both HP and Dell are likewise gearing up to enter the IT service sector and have continually acquired enterprises in fields such as cloud computing, mega data, solutions,and server frameworks, at costs of up to billions of US dollars in recent years.

Prompting the companies to enter the sector is its huge potential and IBM's extraordinary success following its restructuring several years ago. Market demand in China is extraordinary. In 2012, a group purchasing website in China spent 60 million yuan (US$10 million) to have IBM set up an ERP (enterprise resource planning) system, an enormous investment considering the company's business scale. With the rapid progress towards a smart society, enterprises, government buildings, shopping malls, schools, airports, and hospitals in China alike all need complete IT solutions.
