Whoever made that app is a retard. The internet doesn't look like anything. It's impossible to see it or even know what it looks like because it looks like absolutely nothing. If you wanna know what it looks like just pull up a completely black screen on your computer...there you go.

Technology, in and of itself, is AMAZING. It's like living in another dimension; in a spirit realm. The question i have is: where did this technology come from? How do images and stuff transport from one location, to the next? I mean, i know HOW but how???

I believe your mistaken, as it looks like routers and servers, and IT cables, and wifi signals, and lights inside of fiber optic cable, and even electricity passing through circuits.

It is done to make a visual representation of an abstract concept, so that people xlcan visualise and interact with it.

What are they suppossed to do, just make a blank scresn and let you randomly click around it, never knowing where you are or what links to what?

Try the app, I believe you will find it very useful, and also very well thiught out in representing it this way.

Please at least try it out before trying to criticize it too much, as you cant even understand from a couple of pics.

Oh get over it.

I used android for a couple of years and can't be happier with my iphone.

Android phones are great for about 8 months to a year. After that they get laggy and riddled with software/OS problems. By the time a 2 year contract is up, most android users are barley limping along.

I've never had to "restore" my iphone in almost 1 1/2 years. I used to have to re-instal android on my HTC every 4-6 months.

Nevermind that the iphone ranks the highest in terms of reliablity by a wide margin.


I suppose android would be nice if you never installed ANY app and just left it completley factory-fresh.

That is terrible, I wander if maybe it was just your model or perhaps just your phone. I have had a galaxy s for over 2 years and it still works just fine, I have had probably close to a thousand apps on it over that time, most I delete after I get bored with them.

My galaxy s3 is far superior to my buddies iphone5 in every way, my seri function whatever it is called is even better than his. Everything about this model is better, well I havent tried everything honestly, but everthing we compared mine blew his out of the water.

So I woukdnt be so fast to dump on android, everyone cant afford overpriced apple products, and many, myself included prefer androids os to apples.

I don't get it... is this supposed to be like that part in Kung Fu Panda where he gets the secret scroll and nothing is written on it?


It was a reflective scroll. When you open it, it shows your own reflection, basically saying that the secret to being the dragon warrior is you. Trust Disney to pull that one off.


Not to say that the secret is worthless - it's actually very true. But not everyone can grasp such a profound concept. It takes a finger to the eye to get the point across these days.


Anyway, that's a spectacular development. You realize what this means? We've created a universe of ideas. We have taken the intangible and organized it into a world of thought and concept. Beautiful.

10,000 years from now the Genesis of life as we know it will be rewritten...

In the beginning was the Internet. And the Internet was void and darkness moved upon the face of the deep.

And God beheld the void and saw the darkness upon the internet and he said...

"Let there be traffic". And God saw the Internet traffic and saw that it was good.

I like the old tems like Webs... and Nets... They are sturdy and all points are connected. Its okay to observe them all day long. Just be careful, their primary design is to catch things.

That can't be right...

There should be WAY more porn.


Cool concept I guess. I'm not one for apps, so I'll be skipping this one. Maybe this tech can be used to quickly re-establish networks in the event of a disaster?

That is really amazing but yes isn't the internet 70% porn

Anyone remember the episode of Future-Rama when the crew go into the internet and are smacked by pop up ads for "local singles in your area! Click now!"
That's how I picture the interwebz just endless fields of ads and boobies.

Did a search interesting


But how much sexy sex is actually moving through the series of tubes? The answer is: tons. The world's top porn sites—XVideos, LiveJasmin, YouPorn, Tube8, Pornhub—are on par with Google and Facebook. XVideos alone averages 4.4 billion page views per month, double what Reddit pulls over the same time and triple what CNN can do. And it's not just the amount of traffic that these sites generate, it's the length of individual visits as well. Most sites, Gizmodo included, average three to six minutes per visit. Porn sites average five times that—15-20 minutes per visit. In terms of actual data usage, porn sites are behemoths. Most sites average 50 - 200 TB of material, which individually really isn't all that much. But during peak times, when the site's loading image galleries, downloading content and streaming video, its data usage soars. According to ExtremeTech, YouPorn hosts "over 100TB of porn", and serves "over 100 million" page views per day. All told, this equates to an average of 950 terabytes of data transfer per day, almost all of which is streaming video. This is around 28 petabytes per month, which means our 29PB estimate for Xvideos is on the low side; it probably serves 35 to 40PB per month. It gets better! At peak time, YouPorn serves 4000 pages per second, equating to burst traffic in the region of 100 gigabytes per second, or 800Gbps. This is equivalent to transferring more than 10 dual-layer DVDs every second.

Wow....just wow. Good job internet.

I laughed. It's strange I always thought that the internet was a series of tubes...




Interesting... looks a bit like the Death-Star. I wonder if it would be possible for a small, one man fighter to destroy the interwebs?
