The Internet[edit]

Article Request 08-19-16 Emotive Internet (The Internet is evolving from from its current social orientation to what will become predominantly an emotive orientation. Though today’s Internet is more social than it was even 10 years ago, it still remains emotionally challenged. The use of emoticons and emoji in messaging helps, but Internet communications largely remain more android than human. Even vastly higher resolution video conferencing has failed to improve the situation. The Internet, quite simply, hampers the expression of emotion. Fortunately, all of this is about to change. The Emotive Internet, comprising sensor technology and computer based algorithms to enable the real time detection, recognition and sharing of human emotion, is on the horizon.) ( |

Article Request 8-14-16 Floating browser (There is a whole category of mobile browsers, at least on Android, called "Floating browsers". Two of the most popular, among many others are "Flynx" and "Flyperlink". I did not know this whole category of mobile browsers existed until I was was at Google Play's app section, and I was looking to find an app that would open the "Google Search" app's Search Results list in separate tabs. Generally speaking, when launching Google's app on Android, whether by Voice Command or app-link, the search result links cannot be opened in separate tabs which would enable one to rapidly go through a series of results that you want to research, and have the links open in browser tabs. It has driven me nuts for years. So when I just recently came across a few apps in Google Play that said they could do this kind of desired action — opening search results in tabs — I tried several competing apps, particularly the highest rated "Flynx" and "Flyperlink" (links in SOURCES section), and they were described generically as "floating browsers". I immediately found that their operation, UI and behavior are different from the whole slew of mobile browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, UC browser, Maxthon, and so on. After trying these 2 particular ones, I found that they were very similar, with Flyperlink having come out a year after Flynx. One or two app raters on Google Play proclaimed Flyperlink better than Flynx, but I could not detect an appreciable difference, and I wanted to use the one that had better features. So I googled "compare Flynx to Flyperlink" and in the results I could not find any article that directly compared the two. So I went to wikipedia fully expecting an article on "floating browsers", but there wasn't one. It seems odd to me because if I want to get the best comparison of wiki software in the marketplace, wikipedia has the best comparative information, in particular a table comparing 25 or more contenders. Or take "cloud services", there too wikipedia compares the wide array of Dropbox, Drive, Box, cubby, icloud, Sync and many other contenders. Note that I am not speaking of individual articles on the huge array of wiki software apps or the array of cloud service providers, but rather an article on the category of mobile apps called "floating browsers". I'm a UX Designer and it seems to me this article should be included in wikipedia. Thus my request.) (Sources: Flynx app: | Flyperlink app: | and the Google Search results that convey how just how much this type of browser is distinguished from the world of mobile browsers most smartphine users would be aware of: )

An alliance, called the U-SNAP Alliance, has been formed and according to [279], is gaining support from "Smart Grid" stakeholders worldwide, including utilities, metering suppliers, device manufacturers, industry consultants, and regulators. A Wikipedia article has been written for "Smart grid," but it does not mention U-SNAP.
