Synopsis:
This book provides the tools to show how cross-layer and joint source-channel coding and decoding are now compatible with present-day mobile and wireless networks, with a particular application to the key area of video transmission to mobiles. Typical applications are broadcasting, or point-to-point delivery of multimedia contents, which are very timely in the context of the current development of mobile services such as audio (MPEG4 AAC) or video (H263, H264) transmission using recent wireless transmission standards (DVH-H, DVB-SH, WiMAX, LTE).

[Article]: Is Mobile Email Addiction Overlooked?

With the use of smart phones, mobile internet and email are accessible through the mobile device. Checking email remotely become a trend or a stress, depends on who give you the smart phone: company or personal use.

The article studied the technology symptom that was coined as “mobile email addiction”.  It discovered and explained the effect of the addict symptom. It further provided the potential issues which can cause the company liability for the addiction claims.
