The Internet has 4.3 billion IP addresses available for connected devices, but we’re running out of them sooner than we thought. The current Internet Protocol was created in 1977 and wasn’t built to handle the web’s explosive expansion. Luckily, a new protocol will soon be in place that allows for nearly infinite connections. In other news, Microsoft showed of the future of Windows Phone 7 at the Mobile Web Congress, boasting interactivity with Xbox and Kinect. While the demonstration didn’t promise specific connectivity, Microsoft is aiming to create a connected device ecosystem. The big Windows Phone 7 update should arrive in the second half of the year. And finally, Nielsen reported that online video watching has increased by 45% since last year. There are only 3.1% more people now watching online video, which means that current users are simply consuming more. Netflix is the big winner, cashing in on paid subscriptions.
