Smartphones 360° @ Work, Rest & Play

Intro

For starters, a quick rant. Is it just me or does everybody and their dog have a smartphone nowadays. It is frightening just how viral this trend has become. I see people of all ages glued to their devices; mesmerised and oblivious to their surroundings…no wonder there are a lot more accidents than before. Incredulous, I read just a few days ago that by the end of 2012 mobile devices could outnumber the world population…I did say everybody and their dog!

I grew up in an age when there were no cellphones so I find these little gems of technology to be utterly fascinating. Luckily, I’m a bit of a technophile so I naturally adopted this new technology and have adapted it to meet my needs.

For this reason I want to share what I’ve learnt and help others who may be struggling up the steep learning curve needed to get the best from their smartphones. From what I’ve observed it is not a question of age; I see both young and old struggling with their devices and I know it can be frustrating. Therefore, with this guide I’m targeting past, present and future owners so that everyone can learn something new.

…as John McEnroe used to say. Seriously though, as a manager you need to have a sense of humour. In my book, if you already possess the four C’s then you can be a good manager: Competent, Cordial, Civil and Caring. To be a really great manager you need to add a fifth element, that is, to be Cool. This is really a rather obvious and simple theory of mine yet it is effective, affective and an infectious trait. Remember, laugh and the whole world laughs with you – not at you.

Ready for a good laugh? Read on and enjoy!
