Coooool. Allow me to say "yes please" to the grid.
I wonder how much it will cost..
Party pooper :( :( :(... why don't you go play with your new rig or something ;)
I don't think the article is meant to portray a new immediate technology that will change everything in a year.. all technology is progressive, and as you said, it appears that this would be part of the progression of the internet... however, if the ideas and concepts are never developed for progression, then there won't be progression...
You'll have to excuse my lack of enthusiasm. The truth is, I am just bitter because the fastest connection available where I live is a measly 1.5MB/s. I used to live in Las Vegas where I had a 10MB/s cable connection which I felt was barely adequate. With such limited speeds I feel like I've gone back in time to the days of 56k. I need a fiber optic connection immediately if not sooner. If we are lucky, maybe this "grid" will promote an expedited roll out of fiber optic services to the masses.
I live in Vegas! (well.. arizona for college)... when did you leave / what school(s) (if any) did you attend!?
I lived in P[censored]nix (Tempe and then Chandler) for several years, where in Arizona do you live? I went to ASU and UNLV. I just moved back to Oregon this year. I am taking a few classes that interest me part time right now. I majored in business because I thought it would be universal enough and couldn't really decide what I wanted to major in. I am thinking about going back and getting my masters and becoming an interpretor. Business is too boring and I really like foreign languages.
well if this does move the fiber connection to the mass, i think we can expect a big jump in the online gaming world! Maybe the term "lag" might get outdated Oops came back to really just now sorry!
"lag" will no longer be an excuse for being bad at a game.
Lag will always be an excuse, among others.
Ayad is very true, we will never gain fast speeds, well not to everyone.
