Good news: Lantern brings Internet to everybody

LanternSome good news. A new pocket-sized, solar-powered device, Lantern, brings the Internet to everybody — including the poorest people who have no local Internet. Lantern brings down satellite signals to your computer or smart phone, then lets you communicate with the world.

So people living in some backwater dictatorship will be able to log in and find out what’s really going on. And they’ll be able to broadcast what they see, such as government oppression, while organizing opposition to tyranny.

And where the Internet exists but is censored, such as China or Saudi Arabia or Iran, Lantern gets around that. But it has child controls to make sure your kids don’t see some of the horrible stuff out there.

    This will be a boon for Preppers and honey/locust desert wanderers we encounter here on CWD.

    Exciting times.

    Poodle and Donkey……we’ll keep a lantern on for ya!

    Ideal for poodle and donkey……it’s a ONE WAY connection….receive only.

    And only from ONE source; whatever “outernet” decides you “need to know”. (Plus content from paying subscribers, of course, to cover the costs.)

    “And they’ll be able to broadcast what they see, such as government oppression, while organizing opposition to tyranny.”

    Sorry, uploading is not part of the deal.

    This is another sign of the good technology can do. We are evolving to the perfect collectivist state. This will help. All information should be available to all. People will recognize the dangers of capitalism and the need for a citizen, worker’s paradise.
