From Yahoo News Verisign eyes seamless Wi-Fi cellular roaming
The What Ifs are endless if this happened.
Playing the role of stalking horse for wireless carriers, VeriSign last week announced trials at three major universities to integrate on-campus Wi-Fi to any wide-area wireless carrier network for data and voice roaming between networks
Although the Wireless IP Connect Service will be used primarily to link mobile and Wi-Fi networks, it can also connect to a wireless carrier any device with an IP connection.
I am envisioning all of those RFID tags that Verisign will provide URL's for. Every object with an RFID tag will have its own IP address someday, registered by Verisign.
Could Verisign create a ubiquitous computing society? Is this how the physical world gets "turned on"?
