Internet BlackOUT within few years

Researchers say that within few years, Internet could reach at one certain state where it couldn't handle any data transfer at all. That means, we wouldn't be able to surf internet at all.

If we see back to those old days and just think for a moment, how internet has been evolved, then as Google said once, internet was not really designed for TV. I mean, it was just a page and the links to another pages and so, which was termed as 'hypertext'. Gradually, images,sounds and animation started to take over the internet world. With this, different web applications appeared and recently wide implementation of Flash on Internet has changed that face of internet. With this flash scripting technology, people are sharing enormous amount of videos and movies online. YouTube is one example. Millions of hits(videos gets downloaded/uploaded) every day for videos. There are companies which broadcasts streaming TV and audio(music/fm etc) online. With the rise of peer-to-peer, people started sharing even more and more TV,video,software contents leading to terabytes and terabytes of data transfer every few minutes.

All these activities are hitting hard on internet backbone. It's going beyond the limit and if nobody takes the initiatives to handle this situation, there will be no internet in coming days.

The initiatives or say preventive measure is to invest billions of dollars to improvise the Internet technology and overhaul the overall structure.

A flood of new video and other Web content could overwhelm the Internet by 2010 unless backbone providers invest up to $137 billion in new capacity, more than double what service providers plan to invest, according to the study, by Nemertes Research Group, an independent analysis firm. In North America alone, backbone investments of $42 billion to $55 billion will be needed in the next three to five years to keep up with demand, Nemertes said.

Close to three-quarters of U.S. Internet users watched an average of 158 minutes of video in May and viewed more than 8.3 billion video streams, according to research from comScore, an analysis group.

According to some research, this year only.. internet users will create 161 exabytes of data. (Umm.. 1 exabyte equals to 1.1 billion gigabytes for your kind information).
This never ending proliferating of internet videos and streaming TV content, is surely gonna leave many side effects. Big companies like Google are really worried about the fact and they are consulting for the solution.

So,lets see what happens in coming days.

ummm.. big corporates can prevent this by shelling out big dough.. but i fear, the internet charge per user will go high.
2012 apoc story is the prediction of a writer and he has so many scientific reasons to support his words in the book he released.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
