When you ask: What is my IP address?
Here is a small series of posts that cover the most asked questions on Google. Most of these questions won’t be answered here. However, I might, for fun, give an answer if I personally know it. It’s mostly to have fun with why people ask so many questions.
Again?! Well, the first question was what is my IP, and now it is specified that it is an address. Big deal. I must say that the principle of address questions me. In a world where technology is almost omnipresent, but not mature, what can we expect? Let me explain.
Let’s imagine for a moment that there are only two of us on earth. Would we need an address? No, the sender and receiver would be obvious. It’s when you involve more than two components that you need to specify the destination. In the case of technology, it might be your television that wants to know if your refrigerator has a message to check (a notification, for example), and to prevent your television from speaking to your toaster or your telephone.
This brings us back to the need to know all these configuration cases. Take Bluetooth configurations, for example, although an address does exist in this small universe, all you need to do is pair the devices so that they know each other. A small, standardized and simplified procedure. We may soon see the arrival of temporary connection codes, a bit like an exchange system between players on a gaming platform. Knock three times, I’ll know it’s you.
