5G Networks. The Race Is On!
As connected devices move from about 5 billion in 2015 to an anticipated 25 billion by 2020, the race to provide superfast networking is on. 5G is set to deliver a 100-time speed increase. It’s also destined to be much smarter depending on how it’s accessed and by reacting to various scenarios such as driving a smart car or lounging at home with a streaming movie.
The Chinese firm Huawei, claims to have field tested 5G delivering speeds of 3.6Gbps. If that number doesn’t mean much to you, think about downloading a feature film to your phone in a little more than a second.
So other than speed, are there any other advantages? Enthusiasts would say absolutely. 5G is scheduled to deliver not only enormous capacity gains, but reduced latency, and the ability to reach areas current technology doesn’t permit.
There is no agreed upon standard for 5G, so researchers are exploring the technology required to deliver the promise. What seems fairly sure is that 2020 is a reasonably collaborative target date and that 5G may well be a transformative technology for all of us.

Office 2016 or Google Docs?
Cnet takes a swipe at comparing the two. One of the best features of Google Docs, of course, is that it is a convenient, online, biz-worthy product that’s free. Sharing and collaboration are noteworthy.
On the other hand, Microsoft’s Office 2016 is a mature product with a definitive edge in most areas. It goes without saying, Excel is the de facto standard for spreadsheet users. To boot, Microsoft’s PowerPoint is a marketplace fixture for presentations. Plus Microsoft has added collaboration and sharing features to Office 2016 – previously a Google Docs edge.
So what does Google Docs have that Office 2016 doesn’t or doesn’t do as well? Visit CNET for the results.
