Australian T3 - - OPINION -

Over 60 per cent of the world’s pop­u­la­tion has yet to ex­pe­ri­ence the full won­ders of the Web’s cat video and Ni­co­las Cage meme ar­chive.

Face­book chief Mark Zucker­berg said his US$19bn What­sapp mes­sag­ing buy and Ti­tan Aero­space deal­ings (so­lardrones to fly routers into re­mote ar­eas any­one?) are all part of the plan. But what will the world ac­cess it all on? Budget phones, such as Nokia’s Asha and Mozilla’s US$25 Fire­fox phones. in­ter­net.org
