A minute or sixty seconds is nothing in the great scheme of things, but on the internet, it can be an eternity. So in order to see exactly what happens on the internet in just one minute we need a video to highlight the social media activity, products sold and so on. The video above comes up with some eye opening figures and it might make you ask where do people find the time to live their life, well maybe online is their life! Did you think of that?
This what the sixty second video is all about;
All of the stuff that people do on the internet in the span of 1 minute. Including emails, Google searches, tweets, Facebook likes, Instagram uploads, Amazon purchases, porn viewing, and more.

This is something that not many of us get the chance to experience, fast broadband that is! Well for those who do have access to this there is the brilliant router in the works. It is called the Almond+ and it comes with a touchscreen interface and offers access to 802.11ac + 802.11n dual band internet. There are apps becoming available too that will make light switches and sockets interactive with Smartphone’s, how cool is this!
According to the Almond+ Kickstarter page, this is the thinking behind the device;
Today we have one remote for our TV, one for the DVD player, one for IP media player and another for the set top box. Do we want the same mess of controller boxes to make our homes smart? In a sensible world, the smart home controller would be built into the router itself. That is exactly what we’ve set out to do with Almond+. It is not only one of the fastest routers (1.17 Gb/s) on the planet but also a highly capable smarthome hub.
Once this cool router goes on sale, expect to pay around $100 (£64) for it.
In a couple of month’s time, consumers will be able to choose Google as their internet service provider (ISP)! However, this is not going to be any old broadband service, this is fibre offering connection speed nearly a hundred times faster than the average connection speed. There is catch; this only applies if you live in Kansas City and pre-register to get Google Fibre by the 9th September. read more …
