My students said it was a threat for the future (back in december, when I first teached the Flat World Business Course)….staying connected all the time. One of their solutions was connectivity through each others devices. Again they had a vision….but Apple has beaten them!
Apple is launching a new version of the iPad or iPhone with the new operation system iOS 4.3 soon which will have the ability to interconnect with 5 other devices and giving them access to the flat world. Your device will become a mobile personal hot spot! With this technology you only need one subscription to gain access with 5 different advice. For instance, my iPad, which hasn’t got the 3G connection, could gain access to the flat world through my wife’s iPhone, easy not?
BUT your provider has to support this connection service and so far as I know only one US network provider is ready to support this new communication system! A challange for the future!
