In other news, Soylent Green is people: Occasionally here at Wi-Fi Networking News, an errant wormhole opens, and dumps a URL from the future. Often these glimpses of the future are fragmentary, inexplicable, and strange, which leads this reporter to assume that the "many universes" theory of cosmology must be true.
The latest report is from 2008, so many years and twists of chaotic market behavior down the road, that no reasonable analyst would make strong predictions on today's market based on five years' hence. Nonetheless, the report claims that revenue of hot spots in 2008 is $3.1 billion, which some analysts might agree with, and others might rather tear holes in the fabric of space-time to flee into an alternate outcome.
It's clear that the report is not from the future of this particular timeline, because its historical data is incorrect. The story claims that North America currently has precisely 12,400 hot spots, while generally accepted numbers place that range at optimistically in excess at 5,000.
