I spent most of the last week backpacking in a very remote wilderness area where the only access is by hiking or horseback. While on this backpacking trip it was very interesting to see how we used mobile technology and what kinds of devices the other hikers in my group had. Knowing that weight was critical to accomplishing this hike what each person decided to carry along showed its value.
In my previous blog [Software and TV Watching evolve: Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain] I mentioned how our TV viewing abilities have changed dramatically in the last few years. Starting with the VCR, then DVD recorders, DVR’s and now digital streaming services we can choose to watch essentially whatever we went, whenever we desire.
