The Mobile Wave argues that the changes brought by mobile computing are so big and widespread that it’s impossible for us to see it all, even though we are all immersed in it. Saylor explains that the current generation of mobile smart phones and tablet computers has set the stage to become the universal computing platform for the world. In the hands of billions of people and accessible anywhere and anytime, mobile computers are poised to become an appendage of the human being and an essential tool for modern life.

Lack of content

You can't detract from this book

What character would you cut from The Mobile Wave?

The author

Any additional comments?

Waste of time and money -- there is appalling lack of new information, and the author seems to be more interested in showing how great he is and not in providing *anything* new.
Commonplace knowledge peppered with buzzwords.
The author also gets things completely wrong -- you have to be out of touch for years and years years to think that iTunes started digital music -- piracy did it years before...
If you had internet access since ~2009, you know all of this.
I had to listen to this during my 1hr commute, and regretted my purchase for 55 minutes out of it..I wish I could return this book.
