This is a great post from Shawn
TeleGeography released a 2013 version of its Submarine Cable Map on Thursday showing the 232 cables that ferry telecommunications under water between countries. The mapmakers note the rendering serves as a rough estimator for overall demand for connectivity between places, and that cables to a location mean bandwidth there is generally faster and cheaper than places that must communicate via satellite.
In addition to mapping the locations of the cables, the map shows a chart detailing the names and connectivity of all the cables installed between 1992 and 2012. For instance, the Challenger-Bermuda 1, built by Alcatel-Lucent in 2008, connects the US to Bermuda and had an initial capacity of 20 Gigabits per second, scalable to 320 Gigabits per second. The Unity/EAC-Pacific cable, lit in 2010 and funded in part by Google, connects the US and Japan (and cost around $300 million to build, according to Wired).

“Never mind I’ll find someone like you. I wish nothing but the best for you.”
Listening to this song I sometimes feel happier. We all go through break-ups and heart breaks but we sometimes just have to stop and wish the best for that person because we will find someone like them that will in turn return the love.
You’re the only one who can make me smile :)
