If you happen to be in Sri Lanka, and you need to get online, then you should look up in the sky. Why? Because, there is a Google balloon, which is looking forward to share some of 3G Internet with you. One balloon for the whole Sri Lanka, id does not bad, at all.
Covering an entire continent, such as Africa or South America, is a completely different story. Yet, for what is worth, this is a huge achievement. For instance, Facebook Net Drones can cover an area of only 50 miles, give it or take. What about the time in the air?
We have to admit that performances are more or less the same in this field. Up to 100 days or 3 months in the air, this is all what you are going to get. On the other hand, this is only the beginning. We need to cover more land and stay airborne for much longer time.
Once, we can solve these two problems, we are ready to make a history. The ultimate goal is to cover the entire planet with the decent quality of Internet connection. Until then, we are still living in the stone age of progress, despite our shiny gadgets.
Facebook concept of Internet for all, and cyber-justice for all, has its silent and highly effective “executor”. Its name is Aquila, and it is a drone. It can spend up to three months in the air, by feeding itself entirely and only on the generous sun energy. What can we expect in return?
Well, an area of 80 kilometers will get the Internet access, more or less. The trouble is how many of these cyber-eagles you need to cover the are of an entire country, or the entire continent. Africa, for instance. Yet, for what is worth, this is a great start for a revolutionary idea.
In the meantime, Facebook has to solve a couple of more important problems in this field, which has nothing to do with the technology itself. We are talking about the true motives for Facebook’s involvement. Are you ready for a huge disappointment?
If you want to use this drone-connection, you will be “gently” urged to access only Facebook apps and services. Yes, cyber boys and girls, this new Internet freedom comes with a price to pay to its “generous” provider. Sorry Facebook, but no hats off for this one. You do not deserve it, this time.
Google is in its bigger-better-stronger mode, for sure. The second quarter has seen a profit increase of more than $2 billion compared to the same period in 2014. In addition, Google websites contributed to this increase with their own increase of 13%, including Nexus devices with a 17% increase.
The so-called Google click advertising was also a part of this money raining success with a 18% increase. Therefore, it is not a surprise that the number of busy little bees has also increased from 48,584 in 2014 to 57,148 in 2015. So, Google has nothing to worry about? Is that right?
When you get caught in a big game of huge numbers, then even the smallest financial earthquake can have the devastating consequences for your cyber-empire. What is going to happen when Google gets into the zone of single-digit percentages of its remarkable growth? We do not even dare to think or imagine.
In the meantime, Google has quite a few reasons to enjoy in its unparalleled success. On the other hand, we – the users have no other choice than to tremble while expecting what is going to be next Google’s priority, a new service or a new profit. There is no win-win situation for us and Google in this scenario.
