That's what they said the first time. :P
Basically this means that, on average, you can have an IP address for each of your own properties (from pencils to shoes :p).
could someone explain in simple terms what this IPV6 IP address thing has to do with stopping domain name combinations from running out in 2 years?
1,000 IPs x 6,795,253,544 People = 6.79525354 × 10^12
4.4 humans born per second. 264 per minute.
(6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 264 = 2.57395967 × 10^10
Therefore, we can see that it will be 2.57395967 × 10^10 minutes until all of those are used up. Assuming we're not countering the number with deaths or altering the rate of birth.
Let's counter the number with deaths:
1.8 die every second. 108 each minute.
264 minus 108 = 156. (6.79525354 × (10^12)) / 156 = 4.35593176 × 10^10
Come and see me in 4.35593176 × 10^10 minutes, Shenron. (Approximately 82,875.414 years.)
Right. But my point was - why not just implement something like IPv8 now?
I mean, why do we intentionally limit ourselves?
