Posts about Mobile Video

After a week of U.S. travel, I spent some time yesterday looking at how much data I’d consumed on my laptop, iPad and iPhone. I was amazed at the results. I shouldn’t be. Looking back I realise that I barely used my laptop. My iPad is rapidly becoming my mobile office. Emails, video conferencing, document sharing, Twitter. This is no longer a tool purely for mobile consumption but is now a device for mobile productivity. Looking again at my data usage, even my iPhone outstripped my laptop. Needless to say, I’m expecting a congratulatory note from my mobile service provider later this month.

So explosive in fact, that the sheer volume of news that it generated was almost as steep as the study’s predictions for the world’s appetite for mobile data.

One of the fascinating aspects of working in the tech sector is the continuous ream of facts and figures on the state of the world’s networks. Barely a week passes without a new set of data being published that usually signals the end of the modern world, or at the very least the collapse of the network as we know it. Earlier this month, however, I read a report on mobile broadband suggesting that things may not be as bad as we think.
