I don't know why Verizon is as hyped about it, I would think GE would be much more hyped.
Verizon needs to create enough value added services such that its dumb pipe won't be its only source of income in the near future.

Just recently few of the foreign and private establishments have now taking the lead investing in solar sector for an instance. I think, it is going to be a matter of waiting times to see this matured, where both goverments and the rest of private investors to part-take in such huge opportunity.
I am quite surprised about trends' list: not to say I don't agree with, but polling other people for example, it is a common and shared opinion gaming sector could climb in a good position by 2012. At the end it is a mix among mobile, broadband, intelligent handsets or hand-devices and social networks philosophy.
Yes,India is densely populated and has high solar insolation, an ideal combination for using solar power. although the country has made significant progress in wind energy generation,India lags far behind other countries as far as generation of solar power is concerned..
There are companies in Inda working on Solar panels, Solar water heaters and Solar concentrators , but I doubt whether any fundamental research is going on in any of these companies where a PHd in Solar can be employed. Most of these companies are applying the available technology & products from abroad to cater to Indian market

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee.

Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
