Smartphones are handy, can be accessed on the go. I would love to read news on the smartphone, you can have access to all the latest news anytime with in quick seconds and you will know weather predictions and many more updates.
This sometimes expensive by the time service provider sends bill to phone user. Few years ago I used to watch English Premiershp and UEFA Champions leagues post matches via smartphone - this happens 15mins after live matches. It cost 0.99pence per match each clip user download, it cost fortunes despite not live broadcast.
And for live news not cost much sometimes or even free.
Smartphones are smart devices and you can not still compare them with laptops for now and for ever. smartphone solve the problem of quick access to the internet while laptops still handles the heavy computation tasks .
Moreover, laptops still offer better speed and broader funtionalities than smartphones.
A bit related to this post - try the Outlook add-on "Nutshell." It will corral your social media communication lines into one screen and give you a one-stop look automatically based on your preferred settings. This is a free thing that doesn't create undesirable ads or pop-ups. So if you have news you tend to follow from specific industry groups on Linked In, or Twitter, you won't have to go to each account to see these if you're on the go. They'll be part of a chain of headlines you can view on your handheld device.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.

Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
