Beware of the half truth. You may have gotten hold of the wrong half. Most of the greatest evils that has been inflicted upon humanity have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, was false. We are, indeed, in a time of universal deceit and ignorance, where telling the TRUTH is considered a revolutionary act or a crime in itself…

Google-owned video service YouTube now represents 36 percent of total video traffic on wireless networks worldwide according to mobile web platform provider Bytemobile’s second-quarter 2010 Mobile Minute Metrics report.

Earlier this month, Google reported YouTube consumption on mobile devices increased 160 percent in 2009 over the previous year, with mobile video playbacks now topping 100 million per day–roughly the same number of daily playbacks streamed via the YouTube.com website when Google acquired the startup for $1.65 billion in late 2006.

According to Bytemobile, four of the top 10 video domains across all geographies offer adult content, together generating 15 of total mobile video traffic, with long-tail content making up the remainder. High-definition video is virtually non-existent, accounting for just 0.07 percent of video-specific traffic volume. Bytemobile also reports that mobile video consumption peaks around 10:00 p.m., at which time networks experience a peak in congestion and users suffer increased video stalling–on average, every 60 seconds of video screened over a 3G network includes about 10 minutes of stalling. The firm adds that mobile users favor lower-quality videos to avoid stalling and enjoy a better media experience.

Bytemobile anonymously sources the aggregate data traffic in a global cross-section of its customers’ networks and provides insight into the current state of the mobile ecosystem.

Report Snapshot

● Mobile video consumption peaks around 10:00 p.m., at which point networks experience the most congestion and users experience the most video stalling.
● Stalling occurs on the fastest of networks, underscoring the probability that not even next-generation network technology will be sufficient to satisfy user demand for data services.
● Mobile users opt for lower-quality videos to avoid stalling and enjoy a better media experience.
● Optimization significantly reduces video stalling, thereby noticeably improving the user experience.
● YouTube accounts for 36% of the total video traffic on wireless networks worldwide. Adult content and ‘long tail’ internet content account for the rest.

 

I have been quiet the entire vacation time to put in some time doing content for our companies under MJS Global Group: MJS Strategies, MJS Commodities, MJS Capital, etc. I have been putting it off for quiet sometime so I decided to buckle down with the help of some associates. After countless hours back and forth sharing and working through them despite of the time zones, I got the news today that we got hacked by this guy and all the files got infected and therefore we have to work from scratch again. We have notified Hostmonster and they have not responded due to the holidays.

 

My Love Letter from a Cyberterrorist

My Love Letter from a Cyberterrorist

This is my first experience on cyberterrorism. On the positive note I am glad we are still in the beginning stages, however, I already did 70 pages worth of content. What a way to start the year. 

Today is the 6th day of the airstrikes in Gaza so I know there are a lot of tensions. Many protests are going on and on the other end, I can understand why this cyberterrorist would do this. It forces people to look and listen, but to the extent of innocent casualties. 

This should be a huge concern for all of us especially when we are about to usher in the third evolution of the Internet: Semantic web, which will enable people to share content beyond the boundaries of applications and websites. So think about all your important information from Government to banks, etc and cyberterrorists like this suspends all activity. I know I cannot live without internet. I cannot even picture in my head how chaotic it would become when that is done on a global scale the way they hit 9-11 in New York just to make a statement. 

Al Qaeda are using this vehicle for fundraising and recruitment. Mumbai bombers were also quite high tech. These terrorists don´t need much to sacrifice to do destruction. They have calculated so well that all they need is a small rock to start the ripple effect. People have become so much smarter…and more evil towards each other.

The world has definitely changed. Happy New Year to us all!
