I read various blogs because people write interesting things. Unfortunately, some of them get quite technical.
I just read a fascinating article by Donncha on his blog. I don’t really understand the technical side of it, but I think what he is saying is that our computers will be doing all the work soon, and the web server thingies won’t be doing any. This is amazing stuff.
But it got me thinking. And I have an even better idea.
Suppose I just download the Internet onto my laptop?
This will be brilliant because then I can cancel my broadband, as I won’t need to connect any more. I will have it all here. Maybe the idea will catch on and they will start to sell all computers with the Internet preloaded.
This means that we won’t need to use our modems or broadband or any of that expensive rubbish, because of course we don’t need to connect any more to get the information. Everything will be preloaded.
It means that you can browse the Interweb anywhere. Even down a coalmine. Or at the bottom of the sea. Or even up the road from me.
And there will be no more viruses or spam. Unless you send them to yourself. Security will be perfect because your credit card details will never leave your computer.
Just think of the speed. I won’t have to wait for ages because some prat sends me an e-mail with a picture that’s 500Mb is size, because it’ll already be there!
Of course people will say that the Internet is being updated all the time. That’s no problem, because those magazines you see in the newsagent seem to love giving out DVDs of stuff, so they can just give the latest updates each month.
I really think I could be onto something here.
