(Back to 8-bit computing?......)   ;-)
A report issued by a US-based  technology analysis firm has warned that by 
the year 2010 the Internet could  collapse due to excessive data. 

Nemertes Research Group has reported  that the increasing demand by users and 
customers to download and upload data  may well clog the information 
superhighway in a few years. 

The study  suggests that the network is now struggling to conduct the huge 
amount of data,  which contributes to reduced speed. 

The study suggests that the  improvement of the network's capacity would 
require a total outlay in the region  of 137 billion dollars. 

The Internet infrastructure and capacity might  be insufficient to support 
popular Websites such as Google and YouTube and the  projected slowdown could 
severely affect their operation. 

Experts worry  about serious effects resulting from the collapse of the 
Internet on the life of  people in the electronic world of today.
