GoogleA new insight about the ongoing World Wide Web truffle comes up when Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt said Tuesday, actually warned that less than a third of the world’s population, about 2 billion people having internet access and 1 billion have smartphones with them, reports AP. Schmidt was in Israel to attend an annual conference sponsored by President Shimon Peres.

“The World Wide Web has yet to live up to its name,” he said. “Technology does not produce miracles, but connectivity, even in modest amounts, changes lives.” He added, “All of us are blessed with a capacity for innovation-connectivity will help unlock that potential.” Schmidt delivered an optimistic message, saying that the tremendous growth of smartphones can quickly reduce the gaps between haves and have-nots.

Schmidt also warned about Internet privacy, saying that “if you upload a video of your young friend drunk without their permission, you may be ruining their life.” Asking about Google, he said Google turned into a huge company “with its goal of making information accessible to the masses,” he said.
