The Awesome power of Google, Explained

Famous for its search, e-mail and YouTube video sharing, Google has quietly and relentlessly turned itself into the first super-carrier of the Internet era.

The Awesome power of Google, Explained

The global search market continues to grow at an extraordinary rate, with both highly developed and emerging markets contributing to the strong growth worldwide. Search is clearly becoming a more ubiquitous behavior among Internet users that drives navigation not only directly from search engines but also within sites and across networks.

Americans account for 22.7 billion searches, or approximately 17% of all worldwide searches. Factor in the search growth in countries where consumers are just now getting wide access to both computing and broadband, and it’s easier to see how search grew at nearly 50% from 2008 to 2009.

Google lived up to its reputation in 2009, accounting for 66.8%, or 87.8 billion, of all searches. Yahoo came in second with 9.4 billion searches, which was an increase of 13%. Chinese search engine Baidu accounted for 8.5 billion searches, up 7% over the year-earlier period.

The graph below shows the weighted average percentage of all Internet traffic contributed by Google ASNs between June 2007 and July 2009. Most of Google’s rapid growth comes after the acquisition of YouTube in 2007.

The Awesome power of Google, Explained

The competition for Internet dominance is now as much about infrastructure, raw data center, computing power and about how efficiently one can deliver content to the consumer.

Here again, Google is at the head of the pack.

What next, you may ask. Here is a sneak preview.

Google’s ‘Fiber for Communities’ initiative boasts Internet speeds of more than 1 gigabyte per second, more than 100 times faster than most connections available today!

Ekotribe Launches Solar Bags in the Middle East

Voltaic solar bags charge virtually all handheld electronics. The Generator also charges laptops.

A revolutionary product which has powerful solar panels embedded in each bag, is now available in the UAE. The panels use high efficiency mono-crystalline cells to charge practically any hand held device. The Backpack, Converter and Messenger produce 4 Watts, meaning 1 hour in the sun will power 3 hours of iPod play time or 1.5 hours of cell phone talk time.

According to Anu Agarwal, Director of Ekotribe, “If you travel with a notebook frequently, you know that power is always an issue. While the concept of a notebook case with solar panels is not new, most generate just enough power to charge a cell phone, iPod or other small gizmos. The Generator notebook case from Voltaic Systems, however, provides enough power to charge a laptop. The bag’s solar panels generate enough power to charge an internal battery pack in about five hours. Once charged, you connect the battery pack to your notebook. The Generator produces 15 Watts, powerful enough to extend laptop runtime by 2-4 hours from five hours of direct sun. “

Instead of nylon, the Voltaic bags are made from recycled soda bottles and other plastics which require much less energy to make than nylon. Voltaic also offers a lower-powered Backpack that can charge smaller devices.

All Voltaic bags come with a removeable battery pack which stores any surplus power generated, so you have power whenever and wherever you need it – not just when the sun is up. The battery can also be charged using the USB cable and the optional AC travel or car charger. All bags include standard adapters for common cell phones and other handheld devices. The Generator also includes common laptop adapters.

Based in New York, Voltaic Systems promotes ecological sustainability through renewable energy and recycled materials. Voltaic’s bags and backpacks feature solar panels to provide power, as well as a battery to store power for later use. Bags come with adapters for charging common types of cell phones, iPods, BlackBerry’s, digital cameras, and other portable devices.
