Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@Joe Stanganelli My thought pattern may be just a tad narcissistic, and somewhat paranoid. Of course I'm not on any list, at least none that I know of. The satellites hopefully are being used for the improvement of life on this planet.

Re: Nice to have
@ms.akkineni I see it as a scarry new reality... as it like in 1940 germany only one way and no other way... in life we should have more options and rely on facts not opinion... but this days not many brodcasters use facts... it more opinion...

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
Interesting angle. I raise you another question -- what about space junk? (I asume these minis orbit closer to earth than a lot of the orbiting junk)

Re: Nice to have
I hear you. I think we moved too far away from broadband now. As you said it can only become an option if that happens to be the only option available. Otherwise it would remain to be not a prefered option.

Re: Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
@srufolo: I guess you just have to take comfort in the idea that it's so expensive and resource-heavy to use those things for spying that it's almost guaranteed that no one's going to use it to bother you unless you're on a list somewhere.

Unfortunately, those lists are getting longer and longer in the age of cyberwarfare and surveillance states.

Re: Miniature Satellites
That reminds me, Don. What ever happened to Facebook's project of flying a bunch of wireless internet gateways on balloons? Or drones? I've forgotten which.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Satellite
I get the feeling "Big Brother" is watching at all times. Sometimes I think they even see what we are doing in private in our own homes. I wonder how many different countries have satellites up there.

Re: Miniature Satellites
Yes, ham radio groups have been putting small "suitcase" sized satellites above us or decades for experimental type communications between amateur radio afficianados. It would be interesting to know what the miliary and government are doing with those 3 pound satellites being lanuched as part of the "11,746 small satellites for new constellation installations and replacement missions."

Re: Miniature Satellites
Microsats have been around for awhile, I believe. Even ham radio operators have them, but those are launched by piggy-backing onto other payloads.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
