Satellites: No deposit, no return
Can we put a "no deposit, no return" policy on all satellites, like we have on soft drink bottles. The manufacturer pays an upfront retrieval fee, and provides a recycling system, before they get launched into mainstream consumer use? Otherwise, space is going to end up litterred with junk. That would be a new phase of "no return," unfortuntely.

promising business
The opportunity to communicate by mean of satellites for commercial purposes holds promises of a big development, the safety of data and the effectiveness of the real time communication will make the difference between the success or the failure of this business.

Re: promising business
I also forsee a business opportunity in selling camouflage netting for companies that don't want to see their trucks coming and going, or activities at their factories.

Talk about unstructured data
Obviously, I see some benefits to this for the organization with it's act together and capable of leveraging data effectively. But that is not the broad spectrum at this point.  According to a recent IDG SAS poll, unstructured data still has quite a ways to go before organizations are using it effectively.  Does this evolution make sense, absolutely, but most are no where near ready.

Re: Talk about unstructured data
That's one of the blocking point for this business, I think that it will be overtaken if the advantages of this solution will be more than the weaknesses.
