Everyone knows this experience:
You click that little wifi icon in the upper right of your screen (or, Ohmygod Cretin From 4th Century BC, lower right, crazy windows user!) and you select a network to connect to. And then it connects…. and then you wait… and it sorta/maybe works… or it doesn’t… and then you choose another network… or, whah!
Has no one ever asked the most obvious stupid question: Why can’t you be connected to multiple networks at once?
Or asked another way: Why doesn’t an internet connection work like file-sharing, where the client (that’s you) can connect and receive data based upon demand/reception/load.
Stop. Think about the potential of this. Imagine being able to be connect to three or four or nineteen networks at the same time — imagine how fast it would be.
Yeah yeah, there are small things to work out, with determining proper IPs and all… but just free your mind. If enabled correctly, probably with a little middleware client that handles the transaction through a single IP, this could completely revolutionize the purpose of the operating system, while speeding up the internet by potentially infinite degrees.
Please! Someone! Go make this!
