We're running out of IPv4 addresses. Time for IPv6. Really. A little over a year ago, I wrote an article about the IPv4 address consumption with the subtitle IPv4 Address Space: 2.46 Billion Down, 1.25 Billion to Go. A week ago, we reached the magic number of 2.7 billion IPv4 addresses used. With 3.7 billion possible addresses,¹ this means we now have less than a billion unused IPv4 addresses left. So, how long will a billion quench our thirst for addresses? Personally, I've always thought that Geoff's model is a bit pessimistic; in order to run out of addresses in a little over three years, we'd have to increase the rate at which addresses are handed out by 30 percent each year. However, we're now so close to running out that the exact figures don't really matter anymore. In other words, unless something unexpected happens, we'll be out of IPv4 addresses at some point in the neighborhood of 2012. If all of this inspires you to try out IPv6 on your own system, have a look at

PC World - Micro Express IFL9025 Review The Micro Express IFL9025 is the first laptop we've tested with Intel's new Penryn notebook processor. Its speed results set a new record, its battery life was quite good, and the machine is a deal at only $1199 (as of 12/13/07). The catch? Aside from Micro Express's perennially less-than-polished user documentation, there doesn't seem to be one. With this laptop, small offices and home offices can enjoy cutting-edge performance without bleeding green for once. The IFL9025 seemed to deliver on the promise of Penryn, which Intel says is faster and uses less power thanks to a new 45-nanometer manufacturing process and a new advanced power-management state. Only a handful of other laptops have scored in the nineties, and those were big portables equipped with desktop-class quad-core processors. Battery life was 3.8 hours, about 12 minutes longer than the average of 3.6 hours the same group of laptops achieved. --Carla Thornton
