Google Reveals Wireless Vision – Open Networks

Google Reveals Wireless Vision – Open Networks

“Google’s vision of tomorrow’s wireless network is in stark contrast to how wireless operators do business today, setting the two sides on a possible collision course. Earlier this week, the search giant filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent Office describing its vision of an open wireless network where smartphones aren’t tied to any single cell phone network. In Google’s open wireless world, phones and other wireless devices would search for the strongest, fastest connection at the most competitive price. Essentially, wireless operators’ networks would be reduced to ‘dumb pipes.”

This is a comment on slashdot, not an official announcement but it smells like it’s what’s coming and if they can pull it off it will change the entire playing field.

This video has been making the rounds and for good reason, it’s great. And, there’s lots to be learned even for us still photographers in the ad. Each scene is beautifully set up and choreographed, keeping the focus on the boy and the bread but showing the context, less to show how important the bread is more to give it a backdrop.

Watch it a few times, it’s brilliant.
