Re: The (data)center of the world Mitch, 

"You think Google Glass is going to take off?"

Yes, I think it's going to surprise many. Good Glass is supposed to hit the market in just some months' time, around mid-year, at a tag price of $600, or so, just about what a smartphone costs.

This price is much more attractive and accessible to the initial $1.500. This means anyone who can actually buy a smartphone can opt this year for buying Glass, instead. 

After all this time and feedback Google is better prepared and most likely has improved the product. As for the apps, that's still to see what developers are going to come up when Glass is actually in the market. 

Developers need to gain more experience developing apps for Glass. Adapting from a smartphone, or a tablet doesn't work. 

According to a BI Intelligence report Glass is going to sell millions by 2016. I do believe so, too. :)

Re: The (data)center of the world You think Google Glass is going to take off? I see a lot of resistance, more than the usual pushback against emerging technology. And I still haven't seen a compelling application that doesn't work better on a phone or tablet.

"I sometimes think about how odd the photo on the right -- and millions more like it, of people with their faces turned to their mobile devices, or recording things on mobile -- will look to people of future generations. "Oh, yes, people did that in the 2010s," our descendants will say. "Wasn't that odd?""

Yes. :D And they will probably be doing that while all looking at the same odd old pictures on their Google Glass. By the way, in just a few years' time the next picture of this kind will be of people wearing Google Glass.

Re: The (data)center of the world Gabriel, 

Yes, that, too. I wouldn't be surprised if some teachers start using it in creative writing classes for a comparing and contrasting exercise. Or something else. 

If you think for a minute about how different life is since all the mobile devices became mainstream you can also see how much human communications changed. And here I am not talking about the obvious. :/

Re: The (data)center of the world The amazing thing about this picture is how viral it has gone. And that you can use it to dicuss just about any aspect of teleco networking.

The (data)center of the world Mitch, 

Those two pictures are a clear illustration of how much the world has changed in less than 10 years. Indeed, we see the world differently.

We can't even say we see the world with different eyes as for the majority their eyes are always behind a mobile device most of the time.

How many times have you seen someone recording, or taking a picture of something extraordinary to later on watch it on the screen? Meanwhile, they lost the moment of the real experience of being present.

Oh, well. As for data centers, companies are building them everywhere. Google and Facebook have data centers in Finland and Sweden. They have said that one of the reasons is the quality of the water.

Re: Flush with success Telco data centers are just now beginning to change, and the biggest changes are still to come. That aside, I thought we were going for absurd comparisons. The last paragraph of the original post suggested that to me ("outrageous suggestons"). But I've misread things before.

Re: Beyond the DC Indeed they are. My point was that the opportunity in the metro space might be bigger for SDN than in the data center.

Re: Flush with success Isn't the AMD guy's point, though, that datacenters have indeed changed quite a lot?

Are you saying he is mistaken?
