Only a short blog to record information about mobile technologies because I do not have a smartphone! The information will help me when I became a member of the twenty-first century. Shock and horror, I am still using an old fashion phone:

Next time you walking around Brisbane have a look at how many people are using a mobile technology device.

- Laptop and notebook computers
- Palmtop computers or personal digital assistant

- Provide more flexibility for employees.
