Transition To IPv6 Started


Yesterday, the Internet Society began the transition from IPv4 to IPv6. Currently we are using IPv4, the system that assigns a series of four numbers to each device. IPv4 only allows for about 4 billion addresses and the Internet needs more room than that. IPv6 is the new version of the Internet Protocol and expands the number of available addresses to a virtually limitless amount – 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses.

You don’t need to prepare anything for IPv6; your applications and devices will work just as they did before. The complete transition to IPv4 to IPv6 will take time as every website and Internet Service Provider must make the switch. In the meantime, both systems will work together until IPv4 is no longer needed.

To find out whether you are already using IPv6, visit to find out. Many devices you use already support IPv6; however, the websites you visit and your Internet Service Provider must first enable IPv6 before you can use it.

True Knowledge – The Internet Answer Engine

True Knowledge is an internet ‘answer engine’ which breaks new ground by giving direct answers to direct questions. Users can access the world’s knowledge simply by asking for the information they need in a way that is completely natural to them; just as if they were talking to another human being. Instead of a list of links that may or may not be relevant to the query, the user experience is an immediate, perfect response, giving them exactly the information they are after.

Co-founder William Tunstall-Pedoe says: It doesn’t give you references to articles mentioning the words in the question. It gives you the answer. Ask it when Bob Dylan’s birthday is and it will simply tell you. And it if doesn’t know the answer it will say it doesn’t know. It doesn’t know everything but as we input more information it will know more and more.

Facebookers Poking Around 7 Hours a Month, Nielsen Finds


Despite contradictory evidence from the teen demographic, some researchers have asserted that the time people spend online has maxed out. A recent Nielsen study has indicated that, at least during January, that may actually be correct — with one site being a notable exception.

According to the Nielsen stat gurus, the total number of active Web users increased in January, but people still spent less time on the Net as a whole, including major sites like Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, AOL, Amazon, and eBay. The people surveyed didn’t necessarily minimize their online time, though; they primarily redirected their attention to Facebook, the reigning ruler of the Internet.

People flocked to Facebook in January, as the average user spent a staggering seven hours on the site over the course of the month. That’s almost a 10-percent increase from the usage numbers for December. The next closest time-killer during January was Yahoo!, which lagged behind with a comparatively paltry two hours per user. While the Facebook offices must be rejoicing over the dominant numbers, you can expect a horde of shaking fists from the rest of the Web community, and, even more so, from bosses everywhere.
