Can SkyFi Really Give the Entire World Free Internet?

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites, space

Wifi distribution across this planet is patchwork of crazy: You can tweet from Mt. Fuji but lord help you if you want to send an email in Cuba. Thursday, Israeli company SkyFi announced it will be the one to finally soak the world in wifi from space.

In a press release announcing $3 million in funding from Jerusalem Venture Partners and the Liberty Israel Venture Fund, the company said it would get around the problems preventing reliable wifi from traditional satellites by launching nano satellites whose 55-centimeter diameter antenna could be folded up to make launching cheaper, then expanding once in orbit.

Cybercrime warrior: Symantec’s Michael Brown

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, internet

80 million cyber attacks per year — 400 every minute — but as many as 70 percent of them go undetected. And, these numbers are anticipated to go drastically higher now “Ransomware” is paying off for hackers.


Using the internet is a risk most businesses and individuals take for granted. But as more data is stored online, the world is becoming ever more vulnerable, the head of global internet security firm Symantec, Michael Brown, says.

Google Fiber is coming to San Francisco

Posted by in categories: business, employment, habitats, internet

Google Fiber is heading close to home for its next location: San Francisco. Google announced this morning that it intends to bring its fast gigabit internet to “a portion of San Francisco,” specifically to apartments, condos, and affordable housing units. Details on exactly where and when are nonexistent for now, and Google suggests that we may be waiting a while to hear more.

What Google Fiber does say is that it won’t be building out its own network in San Francisco, as it’s done in many other cities. Instead, it’ll rely on existing fiber networks to provide its service. That may limit what Google can do and where it can go, but it also means a much faster path to launch. “To date, we’ve focused mostly on building fiber-optic networks from scratch,” Michael Slinger, Google Fiber’s business operations director, writes in a blog post. “Now, as Google Fiber grows, we’re looking for more ways to serve cities of different shapes and sizes.” Google Fiber is already taking this approach in a couple other markets, including Huntsville, Alabama, where earlier this week it announced plans to launch using the city’s municipal network.

As it’s done elsewhere, Google Fiber plans to provide free gigabit internet service to “some public and affordable housing properties” in San Francisco. It’s also working with a nonprofit to teach people basic internet skills, like setting up an email account and applying for jobs.

Calif.‘s Harris Outlines ‘Reasonable’Data Security

Posted by in categories: business, cybercrime/malcode, internet, law, policy, quantum physics

I wish the CA AG a lot of luck; however, her approach is very questionable when you think about downstream access and feed type scenarios. Example, Business in Boston MA has an agreement with a cloud host company in CA, and Boston also has data that it pulls in from Italy, DE, etc. plus has a service that it offers to all of users and partners in the US and Europe that is hosted in CA.

How is the CA AG going to impose a policy on Boston? It can’t; in fact the business in Boston will change providers and choose to use someone in another state that will not impact their costs and business.

BTW — I didn’t even mention the whole recent announcement from China on deploying out a fully Quantum “secured” infrastructure. If this is true; everyone is exposed and this means there is no way companies can be held accountable because US didn’t have access to the more advance Quantum infrastructure technology.

Zuckerberg warns on mobile future

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI, virtual reality

Agree with Zuckerberg it’s a bad move on all tech fronts to ignore the developing countries and other less connected areas of 1st & 2nd world countries which is usually lower income areas. Also, VR & AR are going to be the experience that is going to be the platform where applications (including enterprise apps & platform services such as BI, etc.) are going to be and want to be in order to make the user experience and productivity more effective.


Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg has warned the mobile industry not to ignore the unconnected, as he laid out plans use artificial intelligence to help bring remote parts of the world online.

The enigmatic CEO used a keynote speech at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to express “disappointment” that the mobile industry was focused on areas like 5G rather than connecting those lacking in connectivity.
