"But in Switzerland, a finance professional who asked Google to remove more than 10 links on his arrest and conviction for financial crimes had his request denied."
Would such a request not already be denied just because Switzerland is not in the European Union?
And by the way, most of the comments here seem to be unhappy about the fact that Google is making these decisions. Guess what, Google doesn't want this either. They fought this tooth and nail up to the highest European Court, but the court decided to force them to remove requests under certain (but not clearly defined) circumstances.

We have large-scale deployment already.
Looking at the Google IPv6 stats, we can see that IPv6 is already used by nearly 4% of users globally. This number has more than doubled compared to one year ago. These statistics show actual enabled usage, showing that everything from end device, router, ISP and the route to Google supports IPv6.
More significantly, there are some countries that have a much higher IPv6 user share. The USA and Germany have around 8%, and Belgium already even has 20% IPv6 users, and Switzerland 10%.
In my view, the number of IPv6 users in most developed countries will easily be above 50% by 2020. However, I would consider even a 4% share of all internet users a large-scale deployment, so I would consider anybody choosing any option other than "before 2020" as misinformed.
Is the consumer ready to pay 100x the original cost?
Absolutely in my case, at least when it comes to OpenSSL.
I happened to read about this story last night, so here's a few more interesting links:

First I thought it sounded like a hoax promoting a camera or skydiving equipment, but I now think it is legit. Or a very elaborate hoax!
I also have a link to a realtime predicted tide generator which takes about 30 seconds to calculate the information it sends back.
Off-topic but could you share the link to this? I was looking for something like it and couldn't find a good one anywhere.
