Nintendo earned 5 billion yen from Pokemon Go and reported 78 million downloads for Super Mario Run worldwide, with more than 5 percent paying to unlock the game.|

|An IP Address is the way a device is identified on the Internet.|
If you’ve seen 4 numbers separated by dots in setting up your router or on a “There’s no place like 127.0.0.1” t-shirt, you’ve seen an IP address.
You may also recall hearing we were running out of addresses in the Pv4 system, the one with the four numbers separated by dots, because there are only 4.3 billion addresses in that system and we have more than twice that number of people on the planet, not to mention that lots of those people have more than one device.
|Even with routers and network address translation we needed a new system with more numbers and that system is ipv6.|
IPv6 is eight groups of 4 hexadecimal digits separated by colons.
It is not interoperable with Ipv4 however, so there is a transition underway. And that transition is now impacting VERY important ways we use the Internet, like playing video games, so thankfully Ethan is here to help us understand it.
|t||- What are the benefits to me as a general consumer of IPv6? (beyond having fifteen bajilion addresses)||https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6|
|p||- Can IPv4 and v6 coexist peacefully on the Internet (can both parts talk to one another)? What about for a single device like a phone or laptop?|
|t||- What do I need to know about the transition for my end-use devices? Do Ineed to do anything?|
|p||- Do I get any immediate benefits from making sure all my devices support IPv6?|
|p||- Is there a downside to moving all my devices to IPv6? (maybe some devices won't work as well together if one is v4 and the other v6?)|
|t||- What about NAT? Can ISPs now charge me per device if they want to?|

I love all of your shows and am a long time listener.
I just wanted to drop a quick note on the Nintendo Switch. You and your guests have commented on the price and how close it is to the more powerful systems, as in the Xbox and Playstation. I am not saying any of you are wrong, as a mater of fact, I agree. However, as a parent with a son that is interested in getting a Nintendo 3DS, which starts at $199, the Switch seems like a far more functional system for just a little bit more. Especially when you consider that you can do a search on Amazon and easily find Nintendo 3DS systems that are $300 or more and since it has been around so long, there is no way of knowing how long it will be before they update it or come out with something new.
Anyway, I was surprised that the 3DS was still selling for so much and just how close the price was to the Switch.
Keep up the great work,
Jerry from strangely warm Michigan
