  • Locked phones,

    In the United States, one of the two national GSM carriers, T-Mobile,[24] will unlock your handset if you have an active account in good standing for at least 90 days. As well, T-Mobile will unlock a phone if you pay full retail price and show proof of purchase through a faxed document. The other, AT&T Wireless,[25] will usually do so after a period of 90 days or once you have concluded your contract, but may also unlock the phone in some other situations as well. Neither carrier is compelled to unlock phones by any law or regulation, and they may choose not to unlock certain phones. For example, AT&T has stated that they will not unlock the iPhones under any circumstances, even after customers are out of contract.[26]

    In a 2006 submission to the US Library of Congress' Copyright Office with respect to DMCA exemptions, Stanford law professor, Jennifer Granick, specifically stated that the FCC does not prohibit handset locking.[27]

    The DMCA formerly was claimed to criminalize unlocking. However, an exemption that took effect 27 November 2006 specifically permits it, and will expire in three years but it can be renewed after that.[28] The exemption only applies to the actual unlocking, not to providing an unlocking device or service, see WIPO Copyright and Performances and Phonograms Treaties Implementation Act.
  • Smartphones are the largest growth market for mobile devices. But they aren’t the only model for constant connectivity. Gartner also noted that sales of smart phones, cell phones that pack more advanced features, will represent about one-fifth of all mobile handset sales by 2008.

  • The kindle, which comes with built in connnectivity that is subsidized by the cost of the books from Amazon. But the data is free.
  • netbooks with always on connectivity that are subsidized by the network carriers. Cost? Free.
  • Autonet Mobile sells its $499 routers through Chrysler and Cadillac dealers as manufacturer-endorsed, dealer-installed options for those cars, branded as Uconnect Web and Cadillac Wi-Fi, respectively.
  • Verizon mifi - connects to verizon, projects wifi. Allows about 5 people to share, costs about $100, data plans from $39 to $59 dollars a month. Use ipod touch like an iphone.
  • Mobile phones are the largest and fastest spreading communications methodology in the history of humanity. There are 271,000,000 mobile phones in the US as of Dec 2008. There are an estimated 300 million _toilets_ in the US. The manager of the Google Books project estimated that there were 168,178,719 unique books IN THE WORLD, to put this into perspective.

  • There are, at the time of this writing, at least 4.1 billion mobile phone subscriptions in the world according to International Telecommunications Union (ITU), an agency of the UN. In december of 2009, the population of the earth is estimated to be 6.8 billion...so 60 percent of the globe owns a cell phone.
  • In over 50 countries, cell phone penetration (the number of cell phones per person) is above 100%.

    Hong Kong 10,550,000 7,008,900[29] 150.5 2009
    United States 271,000,000 306,694,000 [6] 88.04 Dec. 2008
    China 703,000,000 1,324,190,000 52.5 Jun 2009
    United Kingdom 75,750,000 61,612,300 122.95 Dec. 2008
    Spain 50,890,000 45,828,172 111.05 Dec. 2008
    Italy 88,580,000 60,090,400 147.41 Dec.2008
    Germany 107,000,000 82,210,000 130.15 2009

    The report is not due for official presentation until November and is understood to show that Italy has a penetration of 109.42 mobile phones per 100 inhabitants, with up to 62.7m mobile users in absolute terms.

    The penetration rate comes second only to Hong Kong, with a 114.5% recorded penetration rate. According to the ITU, a number of countries have challenged Italy's position, with claims that the Italian data is exaggerated by the fact that multiple SIMs are used on a single mobile phone.
  • By 2010, 90% of the world’s population will have access to a cell phone signal.
  • Short Message Service, or SMS, is a type of chat specific to the cell network. These messages are normally limited in character length (160 characters, including spaces) and are sent from phone to phone. It is the most used data service in the world, with over 2.4 billion active users, almost 75% of mobile phone users. Contrast this with an estimated 1.2 billion people using email, and it helps put the number in perspective. SMS is twice as popular as email throughout the world, and with the adoption rate of mobile phones in developing countries at a blistering pace (in some countries, the adoption rate of mobile phones is doubling yearly, and double-digit growth is common), it is likely to continue to be the primary method of communication for the world.
  • As the popularity of mobile messaging services continue to grow, Gartner, Inc. forecasts 2.3 trillion messages will be sent across major markets worldwide in 2008, a 19.6 percent increase from the 2007 total of 1.9 trillion messages.
  • At one SMS per second, that’s 72,932 YEARS of SMS messages.

  • The Pareto principle (also known as the 80-20 rule,[1] the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.[2][3]

  • 1. Hide unnecessary elements
    On this blog, I set the following elements to display: none in CSS. Use display: none rather than visibility: hidden because visibility: hidden will also hide the content inside an element and not hide the element completely.
    2. Use a fluid layout
    Set the width of your main container (or any other containers) to 100% rather than a specific width in pixel.

    For example:

    body {
    background-color: #fff;
    }

    .header, .footer {
    width: 100%;
    }

    .sidebar {
    display: none;
    }

    <link media="only screen and (max-device-width: 480px)" href="/iphone.css" type= "text/css" rel="stylesheet" />

    The viewport of an iPhone is 320 pixels in portrait orientation and 480 pixels in landscape orientation.

  • From Chad at UNC: I’d like to particularly note that a mobile catalog would be impossible if we didn’t have Endeca as our catalog front end. III/Millennium, our underlying ILS, locks up our catalog and provides no easy way to get at the underlying data. And on a related note, while compiling a list of mobile-friendly database/article interfaces from vendors themselves I was appalled at how few exist. Ingenta, IEEE, and Refworks were the only three major ones I found.

    Other libraries such as North Carolina State University (http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/m/), the University of Richmond (http://oncampus.richmond.edu/academics/libary/mobile/libmobilecat.htm) and Ball State University (http://www.bsu.edu/libraries/MOPAC/) are providing mobile catalog services in completely different ways. Further into the book, we’ll examine how each of them are providing this service, and outline ways that you can choose which method is right for you and your library.
