Executives from ICANN and beyond watch the last current-generation Internet addresses depart--and warn about consequences of extending the IPv4-based Net.
A total of 33.6 million addresses are on their way to their ultimate users on the Net--meaning the last blocks of IPv4 addresses will be allocated soon. IPv6, hurry up, would ya?
In January, 90 percent of Internet addresses were used up. Now that figure stands at 95 percent. Those in charge urge an orderly move to the roomier IPv6 realm.
Less than 10 percent of all IPv4 addresses remain available, threatening the future network operations of all businesses unless migration to IPv6 is stepped up.
The US and Canada are down to their last 16.7 million Net addresses with today's IPv4 Internet technology. Scarcity is pushing Internet service providers to the next-gen IPv6.
The next-generation Internet technology is catching on among ISPs and their customers, but efforts to squeeze more life out of IPv4 persist, a survey finds.
The IPv4 Internet addresses are running low, prompting a switch to the new IPv6.

Rolling chair handstands and an epic story about the end of IPv4.
On today's show, we discuss the coming of the IPv4 black market, throwing more nanodots at the solid-state storage market, and we've got two tech industry shockers: First, Sirius posted a profit, and second: AT&T did a nice thing for a listener. Plus, file-sharers are either the content industry's biggest customers or way worse than bank robbers. You decide.
