Re: Blow up the mobile phones

Hi Kaushik

That was a good article. It was enlightning about future trends in mobile phones and computing. Also it is becoming more and more evident that the future trends in mobile will shift from more technlology to usefulness of the products as well as how can it catch and bring up subtleties in human behaviour and relationships.

Evaluating awareness [was: Measuring awareness....]

Guys, I'm not looking for a system. I'm looking for methods to evaluate
these systems. I have some ideas, but as I stated earlier, I'm looking
for methods to evaluate...
