|Title:||Mobile Applications: the Fifth Cycle|
|Published:||December 13, 2010|
|Abstract:||Using the analogy of an existing smart car, this paper explores Power to the Edge , where the edge is commercial mobile computing. The world is poised for a 5th Cycle of computer capability, this time focused on the burgeoning phenomena of mobile computing. This era may render the laptop obsolete. A number of organizations have forecasted trends. Using these trends we project the future nature of mobile applications that are already growing in volume exponentially. Looking at the dark side as well, we examine the prevailing security and privacy issues and look at the negative consequences of global mobile computing as a powerful Internet force enabler.|
