Each question should be answered in at least 2 paragraphs.
1. Wireless computing is receiving much attention these days. Do you think we will ever have the infrastructure to support RELIABLE wireless networking and computing on a broad scale? If so, why, if not, why not?
2. There are a number of challenges involved in developing software for mobile/wireless applications. One particular problem is balancing the desire to add more functionality to mobile devices while being limited in terms of important resources, processing power, memory, and bandwidth (among other things). What sort of trade-offs do you think are necessary to deal with these problems in developing software for wireless devices?
3. In consumer-oriented cell phones and PDAs, the trend in recent years has been to add more and more functionality/features to the client side device. Why do you think that is? However, many mobile applications are now being designed for organizations and their employees. Would you expect the same sort of focus on functionality and features in these employee-centered applications? Why or why not?
4. Discuss a practical applicationcan be a home or workplace applicationthat you would like to see developed that makes use of wireless/hybrid networks. Why do you think that it would be useful? What problems would you foresee in the development?
