Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
@afwriter I'm sure you're right. Now I did notice something that could solve the problem, it's a strap like a purse's that clips to the phone while leaving it open. That would at least free up one's hand and keep the phone safe from slipping without putting it out sight. but I've only seen this in a store window and not in actual use.

Re: Intimidating
I have a 50/50 mixture, I prefer using my laptop, but I like the portability of my phone when I am out and about. Plus, my phone is easier to charge when I am away from the house for longer periods of time.

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
It's funny that you mention that because if you go to any mall in America you will see gaggles of teen girls with their hands wrapped tightly around their phones. It's not the only reason, but I think that part of it is they never want to miss out on a Snap opportunity.

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
The issue, though, is awarness--I think those who can catch this should.  We should not take what the crew at the FCC is saying as "gospel" as we grapple with the new regulatory environment in Washington.

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
No doubt--Mobile is key--my concern is what impact what I view as the "perfect storm" out of Washington will impact the march to progress @ADI has noted in this latest guidance.   That's why I hope those who are in the Washington Area will consider joining this very interesting seminar:

The Federal Communications Commission under Chairman Ajit Pai has started the process of undoing the internet regulation of the last administration. The recent Notice of Proposed Rulemaking is soliciting comments regarding everything from the legal reasoning for removing the common carrier status to what, if any, "bright line rules" the agency should entertain keeping. This event, co-hosted with the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition, will explore what's ahead for the internet and internet users in a post-internet regulation world.

Last January TPI and CTIC convened a group of prominent scholars to address the question:  The Future of the Internet Ecosystem in a Post-Open Internet Order World.  These papers are now being published in a special issue of the Review of Industrial Organization, which will be available in June.  Speakers at the event will include select authors, who will discuss their papers in light of current developments.

Confirmed speakers are:

Michelle ConnollyProfessor of the Practice of Economics, Duke University and former Chief Economist, Federal Communications Commission

Robert CrandallAdjunct Senior Fellow, Technology Policy Institute and Nonresident Senior Fellow, Economic Studies program, Brookings Institution

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
@Adi I agree with you, although I can't do my work on a phone. I don't think most people can. At least not yeat. 

That might change as device makers become more innovative with their form factors.

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
@Adi yes, and you see that in the way people tend to hold their phones in their hands at all times, particularly those of the younger generation. If I take my phone with me, I pack into a pocketbook. But they want it in hand and not out of sight.

Re: Mobile Data increasing more and more
batye - I think the advantage of the phone is that its always with you. Even in the home, it's often easier to just check something on the phone rather than walk across the room, turn on your laptop and look it up. Plus, it's naturally linked to communications and social media. So if someone sends you a link to a video via whatsapp, you'll probably just watch it on the phone itself.
