13 coming mobile technologies that will change your life

Do you remember back in the dark ages when cell phones were used only for phone calls? We couldn't check our email or even send text messages. How did we ever survive?

It’s funny to think how far cell phone technology has progressed over the last 10 years. Cell phones have gone from being a luxury to a necessity, in both personal and business life. Can you imagine what you would do if you couldn’t check your email or view vital business data from your smartphone these days?

While it’s interesting to look back, I like to look forward to where mobile technology is going and how it might affect the business world. Here’s an article in Computerworld that examines this very topic and details 13 future mobile technologies that will be important.

Joe, if you like to look ahead, how come you reference a Computerworld article from October 2007???

Thanks for the comment, and for paying such close attention to detail! To answer your question, I noticed it was an old article but felt it was relevant even today. I thought it was a little odd that Computerworld would be posting an article from 2007 when I saw it on their front page last week, but it became clear why they did as I read it. Most of the technology mentioned in the article is still in the near future, but more relevant today than when it was written. I believe we are getting closer to seeing a great deal of that technology in everyday life, much of which may even have a direct affect on the IT industry and the business world as a whole.

Also, I was impressed with how much thought the author put into it. It speaks to the quality of the article to still be relevant 2 years after it was written.

I hope that answers your question, and thanks again for the comment!
