The site measuring the extent of influence over the Internet and growing popularity among business owners. If the total of your points on that site, that gives a high priority.

The new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6

Expected the online world as a whole will experience some of the global Internet sites to use the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6, and in light of the entry into force of Internet addresses based on the current version of the Internet Protocol IPv4.

The Giants will be a number of websites in the world, including Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Bing activate the new version of Internet protocol IPv6 and in (the International Day for the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6) and corresponding to June 8, 2011.

I would like to review with you some of the information highway that achieve the correct understanding of what will happen exactly.

What is the Internet Protocol IP?
Internet Protocol (IP) is the language that computers use to communicate with each other on the Internet, similar in mechanism of action to a large extent, phone numbers, and that makes us reach another phone.

What is the protocol that we use now?
IPv4 is the current version of the Internet Protocol. I have been using most of the titles based on the current version of the Internet Protocol IPv4.

What is the Internet Protocol IPv6?
IPv6 is the new version of the Internet Protocol. According to Google, the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6 is necessary to preserve the racial integrity and openness, who enjoys the Internet, through empowerment of all devices connected to a network that communicate with each other directly, and will provide IPv6 Internet growth potential.

International Day for the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6:
Most web sites currently using the current version of the Internet Protocol IPv4, but in the June 8, 2011 (World Day of the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6), will be big business on the web, including Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and Ping, to enable the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6 to their principal for 24 hours, in addition to the current version of the Internet Protocol IPv4, and thus should not be worried if we had to IPv6, Vstassir things are fine. Can visit the following website for more information about the International Day for the new version of the Internet Protocol

IPv6 and communication problems:
More than 99.9% of users do not have any problems in visiting the sites that enable Internet Protocol IPv6, except that in some rare cases, users have IPv6 as possible but it does not work correctly. This results in delays and connection problems when you visit Google and some of the sites participating in the International Day for the new version of the Internet Protocol IPv6 on June 8, 2011.

And produce communication problems related to IPv6 is usually an error in your gear settings to your home network or errors in operating systems or problems in corporate networks equipped with the Internet. In many cases, these problems can be solved by updating or replacing routers and operating systems by updating, or if the company has equipped with repair of the Internet. In any case, it is possible to address the problem by using the current internet protocol IPv4.

If you encounter any problems in visiting the sites that will enable the new version of the Internet Protocol on the eighth of June for 24 hours, do the following to resolve the problem:- The use of possible locations for the current version of the Internet Protocol IPv4 only, for example: If you want to visit the Google site you use the following address: instead of Update your internet browser.- Use the browser supports the use of the new version of the Internet Protocol such as Google Chrome.

Top 10 Phones to look forward to now

The world of mobile tends to go into a prolonged summer snooze after the endless announcements of Mobile World Congress and the rush to best those phones quickly in the following months. But that’s not to say there aren’t stacks of amazing new blowers set for release later this year. Here’s our Top 10 to look forward to now.
1 iPhone 4S/5
iPhone 5 placeholder
Apple’s new blower looks a dead cert for September, when the Cupertino company usually shows off its new iPod range. With the next-gen phone missing from WWDC, rumours are still rife about what we can expect. A four-inch screen? NFC tech? An eight megapixel camera? All are plausible.
As for the name, expect it to be dubbed the iPhone 4S as Apple looks to 2012 for a major revamp.
2 HTC Sensation
HTC Sensation
The Sensation has just hit shelves, after garnering some serious hype since launching a couple of months back. With a stunning 4.3-inch screen, lightning fast 1.2GHz processor and 1080p video skills, it looks as if it’s going to be the phone to beat in 2011.
The only issue is whether HTC can get future versions of Android to work on it.
3 HP Pre 3
HP Pre 3
The third iteration of the stunning, but low-selling Pre is almost here, pegged for release at the start of July. HP revealed the device back in February, with a similar design to its predecessors, but with improved internals. There’s a super-fast 1.4Ghz processor, five megapixel camera and the excellent webOS under the hood.
4 HP Veer
HP Veer
The smaller HP Veer is also about to debut on these shores after its initial US rollout last month. This tiny smartphone uses the same webOS as the Pre 3, but comes with a slightly slower version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, 8GB of storage and measures just 54.5x84x15.1mm.
5 Google Nexus 3
Still only a rumour, but one which is likely to materialise in the last quarter of the year. Being Google’s own handset, it’ll come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a screen that’ll be capable of HD Ready video playback and even 1080p video recording. There’s no word on who will be making the device for Google though, although LG has been mooted.
6 Motorola Milestone 3
motorola milestone 3!
Apparently not coming to the UK, but the Milestone 3 has been officially revealed. It has a huge four-inch screen and a five-line QWERTY, so tapping out numbers is far easier than on older versions. There’s a dual-core processor and it comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread inside.
7 Motorola Pro
motorola pro
The UK version of the US’s Droid Pro is coming out next month. It has a full QWERTY keyboard aimed at business types, a five megapixel camera and 8GB of storage. However, it only comes with Android 2.2, meaning you’ll miss out on the very latest Google smartphone features.
8 BlackBerry Bold 9900
BlackBerry Bold 9900
Hitting Three in August, the Bold 9900 is BlackBerry’s latest attempt to claw back some of the ground it has lost in the professional space. With its trusty keyboard, 1.2GHZ processor and super-slim 10.5mm frame, it promises to be one for email fanatics everywhere.
9 Nokia Windows Phone W8
nokia windows phone 7 2
One of two Nokia Windows Phones expected later this year. Word is that it will mimic the Nokia N8 in terms of the hardware, with an aluminium finish and 12 megapixel camera. Windows Phone Mango will be on board this device, which will be do-or-die for Nokia.
10 Nokia Windows Phone W7
Mobile watcher Eldar Murtazin says this will be the first Nokia Windows Phone to be released. It takes its cues from the beautifully designed Nokia X7, with an 8 megapixel camera and Qualcomm chip.

TOP 10 iPhone 5 Delay rumours put to the truth test

Just as night follows day, each June brings a new iPhone, right? Not always. And certainly not this time around. But just why did Apple delay the iPhone 5? tests the veracity of the rumours ahead of its re-scheduled appearance towards the year’s end or even early 2012.
1 It’s a Verizon thing
verizon logo
Following aeons of waiting, Apple phones finally became available on US carrier Verizon in January. After setting a first-day handset sales record for the network, it’s now expected to shift between nine to 13 million units in 2011.
It could be that Apple has opted to leave a longer gap between iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 to pacify irate Verizon customers who’ve just shelled out for an Apple smartie only to find that it’s outmoded a matter of months later.
For our part, we think that’s something that Verizon might’ve lobbied Apple to do. But after changing the previous industry paradigm where carriers held all the power, these days Apple pleases itself. What’s more, although 13 million sounds like a lot, it’s a drop in the ocean in Apple’s global customer base and so was unlikely to influence Jobs and co unduly.
2 Apple is holding fire for the Christmas market
BB Xmas branding
With iPad sales expected to hit 8 million for the next quarter alone, Apple is hardly desperate to get its killer product to market to buoy revenue. So it’s easily in a position to save its blockbuster product at the busiest retail period of the year.
However, we’re not sold on this being a factor in the delay. After all, it’s not as though landing in June in other years has harmed sales anyway in the build-up to Christmas.
3 The company is still smarting from antennagate
Antennagate iPhone 4
Problems with dropped calls didn’t hurt sales of iPhone 4. But the fact that the handset didn’t fulfil its primary function of making and taking calls properly did put a real dent in Apple’s hitherto spotless reputation with tech movers and shakers.
Conjecture abroad at the time was that Apple had rushed iPhone 4 to market and that this was the reason the death-grip hadn’t been ironed out. So it’s entirely plausible that this time around the notoriously perfectionist Jobs wants to avoid a repeat.
4 Component shortages have stymied the launch
Problems in component factories caused by the Japanese tsunami disaster have been cited as a factor in many delayed tech products this year. The effect this had on Apple will have been mitigated by the fact that its company policy is to pay for parts in advance.
But that doesn’t mean it will have been immune, as the extended five week wait time for iPad 2s ordered just after its release testifies. So for that reason, we think is almost certain to be a contributory factor.
5 Apple has taken a late decision to add 4G support
iphone 4g
The first 4G Android phone, the HTC Evo 4G, dropped back in March last year. And it’s since been followed by a host of Android kit with next-gen network support, such as the Evo Shift variant, the Samsung Epic 4G and the Motorola Atrix.
In the meantime, despite high hopes that the Verizon iPhone 4 would offer 4G support, in the end it was 3G only. That’s meant that for all Apple’s just-announced and admittedly very cool software additions, its new phone could end up looking a bit last-gen next to its biggest rival in the smartphone space.
So it’s not out of the question that Apple has postponed the iPhone 5 to get this feature on board. Adding credence to that theory is that this would give Apple the time it needs to get an LTE Qualcomm chip on board that uses less power and has been thoroughly tested.
Waiting until the chip is available will also mean that the Apple aesthetes won’t have to make the design compromises that first-gen LTE chipsets demanded, as alluded to when COO Tim Cook explained that 4G had been omitted from the Verizon edition of the iPhone 4.
6 They're clearing the way for twice-yearly updates
The way some journos have it, the delay has nothing to do with shortages or matters beyond Apple’s control but is evidence that the tech giant is very consciously changing its strategy.
By the experts’ rationale, from hereon in Apple will release two new handsets a year. The advantages of this being a) there’s less pressure to come up with a smartie that redefines handsets every 12 months b) It’d clear the way for Apple to offer handsets at a range of price points, thereby allowing it to compete with mid-range Android numbers more effectively.
There is some sense in the pricing theory, especially when you consider that right now Apple is effectively conceding the lower end of the market to Android. But we can’t help feeling that the fabled cheap iPhone Nano would represent a much better way of taking the fight to Google.
What’s more, stage management and PR is at the heart of what Apple does. A twice yearly unveiling of a new iPhone would make new iterations much less of an event and could actually damage their allure more than abandoning its ‘premium product at a premium price’ policy that’s so far made a cheaper iPhone a non-starter.
7 Steve Jobs’s health problems caused it
Steve Jobs
Within a matter of hours of Steve Jobs’ appearance at the WWDC, shares in Apple had dipped 1.5 per cent. Of course, a lot of that will be down to the fact that no iPhone 5 this quarter means reduced revenue in the short term. But the fact that Apple’s leading light looked a long way from recovery wouldn’t have helped either.
Some folk have posited that the delay is to allow Jobs time to get back in the saddle to oversee Apple’s largest product launch of the year. For what it’s worth, it’s not a theory we’re buying.
For one thing, acting CEO Steve Cook has done a grand job in this stead. And for another, Jobs’ appearance at WWDC suggests he’ll be well enough to helm the PR circus when iPhone 5 does land.
8 It wants to throw a spanner in rivals’ schedules
Android army
By releasing a new iPhone every June, rival phone makers know exactly when to bring out their phones to ensure they’ve got the longest window possible to hoover up sales before the next iPhone lands. The set-in-stone refresh date also means that manufacturers are easily able to avoid a launch date that puts their wares in a head to head run off with a new iPhone.
By playing silly buggers with its schedules, Apple eliminates that advantage at a stroke. And a welcome side-effect is that it then also scoops up more column inches as pundits queue up to speculate what Cupertino might have up its sleeve this time around.
9 Apple is waiting to see how NFC goes down
iPhone NFC
This one stems from a report in the Independent back in March, wherein it was claimed that Apple isn’t looking to match the NFC smarts of a slew of phones powered by Android 2.3 any time soon. The reasoning is apparently that its waiting to see if smartphone digital wallets actually work before deciding to make its move.
Given Apple’s M.O of turning up late to the party and doing something better than anyone else, we see why this rumour got some traction. But we still can’t see it being a compelling enough reason to delay the iPhone 5 given that it’s pretty apparent to anyone that NFC payments are still likely to be the preserve of early adopters and geeks for a while yet.
10 Erm..what delay?
At no time did Apple ever announce that iPhone 5 would land in June. So strictly speaking, there was no delay. That’s what the tech types would say anyway, and we can kinda see where they’re coming from.
But let’s not play games with semantics. Lots of people were expecting to be able to upgrade in a few months time and will be desperately disappointed that's now not an option. Try telling them there’s no delay and see where that gets you.
