Imagine if you will, six billion people own a mobile phone, laptop, or Tablet PC that is connected to the Internet via some type of wireless network — whether through a Wi-Fi, cellular-wireless, WiMAX, or some other networking method yet to come.

What happens when this “nirvana” of mobile computing happens?
