Can you imagine getting rid of your computer and just using your phone or tablet? Some people are doing that already and now spend more time on their phones than computers. Today’s mobile devices provide immediate convenience, unparalleled portability, extended battery life and excellent productivity via great apps. The workforce is on the move attending meetings, coordinating with team members and communicating with vendors and clients – which means the workplace and needs to be prepared to handle the security and performance challenges that come with a multitude of network-connected portable devices.
- Lunch meetings with colleagues are no longer limited to pleasant chat and jotting down a few notes. With your iThing in hand you can interact, share and build – all while gnawing on a ham sandwich.
- You’re at home watching TV when you get a great idea for your next report. Why wait? Pick up your smartphone and add your finishing touches right then and there.
- Do you brainstorm during a rain storm? Do you find inspiration flying at 30,000 feet? Wake up during the night with a sudden flash of insight? Just grab your iThing and jot down those ideas before they are gone with the wind.
