Riddle me this--when is unlimited data not unlimited? Answer: When you throttle it. Sounds like a riddle posed by the Riddler to Batman, but it's actually the argument of the Federal Trade Commission in a lawsuit against AT&T.
While BYOD was originally supposed to save companies money on mobile devices, it has become a source of costs and risk.To explore these issue in depth, FierceMobileIT is holding a webinar this afternoon (Oct. 22) at 2 pm Eastern time.
Watching the demonstration of Atheer Labs' augmented reality goggles here at Compass Intelligence's GoMobile 2014, I had a flashback of Tom Cruise in the movie Minority Report.
Federal regulators are going after another wireless carrier for "cramming" bogus third-party charges on to customer bills. This time the target is AT&T.
I find CTIA's argument that wireless faces unique challenges that preclude equal treatment under the net neutrality rules unconvincing. As I've argued in this column before, it is reasonable to treat wireless and wireless carriers the same when it comes to net neutrality rules. Fair treatment is fair treatment, regardless of technology. --Fred
Since the 1996 act, the mobile world has exploded and phone services is available coast to coast. I agree with CTIA that the whole idea of universal service needs to be rethought in the second decade of the 21st century.
Now that all the flashy stuff with the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch launch is through, Apple is getting down to business with its new iOS 8 mobile operating system that includes some useful features for enterprises.
For my Editor's Corner, I want to take a deeper dive into FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's keynote Tuesday to kick off CTIA's Super Mobility Week, which I am attending.
FierceMobileIT's first annual Fierce15 awards will recognize 15 companies for outstanding extreme mobility projects and initiatives.
Let's stop the hype about the California court ruling and let's start reimbursing employees for work-related BYOD expenses. It's only fair.
