Intel-iquette: Intel Releases Mobile Etiquette Report
Author: Eric Everson
Perhaps you too get annoyed with movie goers that constantly check and text through the film. It’s a dark theater and that bright screen certainly presents a distraction, so this mobile etiquette report by Intel certainly hits close to home for many of us.
As CNBC Correspondent Julia Boorstin, notes, “The chip giant commissioned a "Holiday Mobile Etiquette," hiring Harris Interactive to conduct a carefully weighted poll of 2,625 adults to better understand how people use technology, so it can better create and adapt its products to serve the fast-changing consumer.”
What does this report suggest about the future of wireless? Considering that it was commissioned by a chip manufacturer and not an exclusive wireless handset manufacturer, I think it speaks volumes to where this company is positioning its chips for the future. Can we look for the Dell-Intel partnership to carry over into wireless? I sure hope so!
While I can’t help but look toward the future, this report begs the question, what mobile etiquette (or lack there of) drives you crazy?
