Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Network NAB 4 Peer to peer, or P2P computing has become a huge craze in the new millennium. The technology lets individuals directly chat, exchange files, and share computer power and storage space. It has changed profoundly the way people use computers. Today, current Internet users require a basic functions and software to gain access to the Internet. They simply have to connect to their ISP (Internet Service Provider), who give them a temporary IP address. ISPs also provide additional services, which we take for granted, such as pulling in your e-mail. If you were to have your own personal IP address then such facilities, as these would not be provided for you. Just witness the Napster phenomenon.

Conclusion

The future sees that when work is saved in your computer it wont be saved to your own personal computer, instead split up into tiny parts and saved all over the world. If your computer, or even the Internet and every computer in the United Kingdom crashed your work will not be lost. Extra hardware and software will be all you will need to recover your files from across the Atlantis and beyond. Who knows what will result? At the moment magazines and newspapers are talking about a society where the Internet will dominate. Where we can go on holiday leaving computers all over our homes so we can check up on essentials such as water, electricity or food supply. We could check our fridges from Hong Kong to send an order to Tesco's so that when we return we will have enough tea, coffee, sugar and milk. Who knows what will happen! Who knows what mad ideas people will come up with! All I know is that one-day we will be doing things with the Internet that we could, at present, never even dream about. ...read more.
