In this Brown Bag, the latest updates in mobile technologies are discussed, particularly the iPhone 4S and the new Amazon Kindles. The iPhone 4S includes a full-featured voice controlled system called SIRI which will allow users to create reminders based on their location (e.g. "remind me to call Prof. Smith when I get to my office."). The newest Kindles are surprisingly affordable: the basic version is $79, while the top-of-the-line tablet is $199. What implications will these new technologies have on teaching and scholarship, and is now the best time to upgrade?
