The Crazy IP Tipping Point Has Returned

By John Honovich, Published Aug 10, 2013, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

For almost all of you reading this, the tipping point from analog to IP cameras is no longer a concern. However, a recent market analyst report is now predicting that the market will not 'tip' to IP cameras until 2014, creating fresh questions. Even more confusing, this same firm predicted last year it would have already tipped by now.

What happened is that the China surveillance skew has struck again - twice.

Chopsticks Vs Forks.... really you pulled that one.. first off there are far more people who use forks in the world.... the china pop 1.3 billion geregistreerd via Argeweb poplulation does not trump the world population and most people in India (also a billion) use forks. so mute point and needs to be removed. let chopsticks stay in the metric for those who use it.... but not for this article.....

Thanks for the feedback. Two things:

  • The fork using population is far smaller than you evidently imagine. It's not just China that uses chopsticks, it's Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam and the 100+ million of them who emigrated to the West. Plus, the number of people who eat with their hands is significant. India, in particular the Southern part, is one. Indeed, ask Oprah about that. Not just India though. Sub-saharan Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia all have large populations who eat with their hands. Maybe more people use forks but there are easily multiple billions who do not.
  • The point is not whether forks are better than chopsticks or whether there are more or less chopsticks or forks being used. It is the opposite. Local preferences vary, for many reasons, whether cultural, logistical (warm vs cold countries), or financial. Focusing on global statistics belies differences that are critical to specific regions.

thanks that cleared up the entire analogy for me and my co-workers who were also not getting it. thanks John

This gets my vote for number one most entertaining post on the forum!
