Yesterday I was sitting in an airport waiting for a flight. As the airport announcements were blaring over the speaker systems I looked around me and saw that almost everyone had their faces buried in a device. A woman was next to me on her iPhone doing email. Two gentlemen were across the aisle frantically typing on Android phones and a few kids were playing on an iPad. Since the flight was delayed (what a surprise!), I heard a woman on her phone talking about rebooking her connector and then looking up some hotel options if she couldn’t get out.
From my review of everyone around me, it was pretty clear that mobile computing has changed the way we consume, share and use information. If I can’t access information on a smart phone or other mobile device, doing business becomes difficult. I then started thinking about printing from my mobile device. It’s true that I can do a lot on my phone, but sometimes I need to print a document.
