Our simple vision at Intel, is that we’re going to add a billion people to the internet by 2015. Going from 1.5 bn to 2.5 bn people. So you take that, combined with those 15 bn devices [predicted to be connected to the internet by 2015] and our vision is basically to connect everyone to everything, and that’s before you even talk about machine to machine.
