It's sad people are complaining about something like this. Obviously filing class action lawsuits is high on your priority list in life if you care so much about something that means so little to you. Get over it and care about more important things than complaining about something that barely affects you. So many other things to care about and enjoy than legal garbage all day long.

I agree completely. People won't take the time to notice the statistics or numbers showing how many more live every year. They will get too caught up in having something to blame and many will rally behind it. The problem I see is if 1 drunk driver causes an accident he gets put in jail. If 1 robot causes an accident all the robot systems will take the heat.

A universal log-in system. So, if your gmail account is hacked you will not only loose access to gmail, in fact you will not be able to sign into any of Google products. This shows the vitality of our Google credentials."

I've only seen 1 movie in 3D at the theaters and I left there with a headache. I don't get headaches often and never had a problem with any other movie so I'm assuming it was because of the 3D. It was cool and everything but frankly nothing to be excited over. I like my movies large and in 2D.

Microsoft always cares about being number 1 in everything. Sometimes they stick their noses where it doesn't belong. They can't accept to lose in something. Yet if they really cared they would put more thought into their products before they released them and focus more on fixes rather than trying to constantly come out with a product to trump someone else.

+ - The Need for IPv4 to IPv6 Planning->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "The Internet's supply of IPv4 addresses is quickly running out, setting the clock ticking on the final exhaustion of the Internet numbering plan that the world has used for over three decades. Expected to occur in March of 2011, the event will be a wake-up call for connected organizations everywhere. It is clearer than ever before that IPv6 transition plans are urgently needed. Once all IPv4 addresses are depleted, organizations will only be able to receive IPv6 address space.

If you haven't started to work on an IPv6 strategy yet, you're probably behind the curve. IPv6 was designed largely to solve the IP address exhaustion problem. It exponentially increases the amount of address space available to Internet-connected devices. IPv4 addresses, which are represented by a 32-bit number, enables a mere 4,294,967,296 (4.3 billion) IP addresses. IPv6 uses 128 bits, allowing 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 (340 trillion trillion trillion) addresses.

The inevitable switchover to IPv6 has been anticipated for a long time, but the cutover is imminent. When the IANA runs out of IPv4 addresses, headlines will be created, even more awareness will be raised. CIOs who have not planned IPv6 transition plans as part of their strategic agenda must act now, or risk the entire enterprise online."
