The Upcoming IPv4 to IPv6 Upgrade - Should we be worried?

As I'm sure there's a few of you around here who are aware of what I'm talking about, the internet is running out of addresses and there will be an upgrade occuring midway through 2012 to IPv6 so there will then be more addresses readily available. I've heard there's only about 2% of websites that have actually gone forward with the upgrade to IPv6, do you think there will be problems with regards to when IPv4 finally reaches the final stage of it's lifespan.

Is software as important as it used to be?

Back  in 2000 software was very important for anyone using a computer , but in present day 2011 the question stands; is software important? You can still get software , but you can also (usually) use a web app to perform the same task and still in the end have the same results.

Web apps allow the user to work on the same thing on any inernet connected device at any given location & time , without the need to lug around a pen drive or CD or any other means of storage  , This can…

I would like to think that people would live on with out technology because it's not that important. Let's be honest money people would be clueless about what to do.…
