First, it proves that private space companies is a sustainable business. If previously we saw government-to-government and government-to-business space services, now it will eventually be switching to business-to-business model, leading to open market, competition, cost reduction and following commoditization of the market.
Second, it seems like we're going to have internet as ubiquitous as GPS. It means that in any place on Earth you will have guaranteed internet connection. Everywhere. You wouldn't even think if there is internet or not, it will always be wherever you are. Like air. Of course it will be slow at first, but then it will get faster and faster up to the point when speed stops being an issue. Add the internet of things into the picture and you will see the next level of humankind.

Russian self-propelling artillery
To illustrate it better I made a few screenshots. I connected the location of Russian artillery and the Ukrainian camp with a ruler. Distance of 10km is exactly within the fire range. Then notice the direction of guns, the direction of explosions -- they are perfectly aligned with the ruler.
Google accidentally caught one of numerous situations when Russian military forces (not separatists as Putin insists!) shelled Ukrainian military from Russian territory. Not only confirms it again and again that Putin is cynical liar and Russia covertly kills hundreds and thousands of Ukrainians, but the total drama is that the Ukrainians couldn't fire back as it would immediately give Putin reasons to start uncovered military operation in Ukraine. Therefore Ukrainian soldiers died in that field, mercilessly killed by Russian army without even a chance of striking back. And Russian military officers ordered to fire while perfectly understanding that they wouldn't get any retaliation -- what a honor. Infamous bastards.
