The real reason everyone hates making phone calls today
It's a truism that people—especially young people—spend a lot less time talking on the phone now than they once did. I don't have good numbers to cite, but the personal and anecdotal evidence seems pretty compelling. Where once I made and received dozens of calls a day, those have now been reduced to just a few. I roll over so many minutes on my mobile plan it feels like I could talk nonstop for the rest of the year and not run out. But I probably won't.And it's not just me. This is true with most people I know, in both my personal and professional lives. Have phone, won't talk?! But why? It seems counterintuitive that now that we all carry telephones around with us 24x7, we spend less time talking on them than when they were tethered to our homes and offices (and the occasional phone booth).To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Apple's deal with Cisco will lay out a red carpet for critical iOS apps
Enterprises will be able to give their most important iOS apps priority and route voice calls over their own networks through the partnership that Cisco Systems and Apple announced on Monday.The deal reflects a recognition that mobile devices and apps are replacing traditional IT in many enterprises. About 30 percent of voice calls in business today are mobile, Cisco says. The companies want to combine mobile and traditional enterprise technologies to help people work better. But they're not saying when that vision's going to hit the streets.Cisco and Apple can integrate mobile devices and apps more tightly with enterprise networks because each company supplies both hardware and software, according to Rowan Trollope, senior vice president of Cisco's collaboration group. "We can move beyond what just a normal app developer could do," he said.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Wi-Fi blocking debate far from over

Network World Mobile & Wireless

Wi-Fi blocking debate far from over
Following the FCC’s warning in January that it would no longer tolerate the Marriotts of the world blocking visitors’ WiFi hotspots, I set a reminder on my calendar to revisit the topic six months later. After all, the issue of WiFi blocking sparked strong reactions from IT pros, end users and vendors of wireless LAN products early in the year, and I figured it wasn’t over yet. Read More

Do you know how much your smartphone costs?
Late last week, Verizon announced that it was ending its long-standing practice of offering substantial smartphone subsidies in exchange for a 2-year service contract. The move by the nation’s largest mobile carrier follows similar marketing approaches from much smaller competitors like T-Mobile and Sprint. Even though I’ve been buying subsidized iPhones on 2-year contracts for almost 5 years now, I’m a big fan of this “new” approach—at least philosophically. Assuming that the dollars work out the same (not at all a safe assumption, unfortunately), I believe it’s better for everyone to understand the true prices of the devices they buy and the services they use.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
