For today’s Daily Dose of Business news, I’ll talk about the CNN Money Article with the title “Google halts drone project to beam internet to rural areas“.
I am really amazed on this new idea that came to the minds behind the tech giant. They would want everyone to be connected through the internet. They really would like to make the world smaller for everyone around the world. Though the drone project that would bring the outskirts of the world into the online community was shut down, that doesn’t mean that they will stop and I love it.
They just found a better alternative to the drones through balloons. The balloons cost way cheaper than drones and it’s a good thing. I am now imagining the whole world connected to the internet, everyone from afar won’t feel the distance as long as they can see each other on Skype, Facetime or any other app. This is a big plus for those who have sacrificed to be with their families just to earn money on the other side of the world.
When this happens, businesses would find it easier to operate because those living in remote areas would be able to connect to them and buy from them online. Courier Services would also boom because not all suppliers, resellers and distributors is capable of delivering everything from the get go.
The drawback though of this project once operational is that this might reduce the productivity of employees who should be working, as well as those students who should be studying on their free time because smartphones have become affordable now and a simple smartphone could easily have access to the internet if this project of Google pushes through.
I do still hope though that this project would do more good against its drawbacks. We, the people should not be imprisoned in the internet world but rather use the internet for our convenience. Thanks for the read!
