What can your cell phone do for you?

Posted: July 31st, 2007, by Yunho Chung

With the kind of job that I’m in, I am constantly forced to move from one place to another. For this reason, I have connected my laptop computer to our company’s server so that I can access the necessary data from anywhere I want. I thought this was very convenient and even though it’s not a new concept, I have encountered many people being amazed by it.

Today however, I want to tell you about an upgraded service provided by SK Telecom. Telecommunication industry is so saturated that it’s difficult for MNOs in Korea to acquire new consumers and it’s difficult to earn revenue from the voice services anymore. Therefore, SK Telecom is focusing on providing various data services and for this reason, their revenues coming from the data service is higher than any other MNOs in the world.

This upgraded service, which is a part of their data service, is almost the same concept as the above, but now I can now access the computer via my cell phone! Frankly speaking, constantly carrying around my laptop was pretty heavy at times, but I had no problem carrying around my cell phone. The name of the service is called “Mobile Mini-PC” and the way it works is this: First, I have to apply for this service via my cell phone. Once that’s done, I download and install a program from an online site which allows me to link my cell phone with the computer. After that’s done, voila! I can now access my server computer via my cell phone! It also allows up to 5 people to access the computer and also allows transfer of files from my computer to other computers.

This service in a sense is similar to those provided by ORB (which provides the user with instant access to photos, music, videos, live television, and other digital content on their home PC at anytime and from any internet-connected device, such as a mobile phone, PDA or laptop) or that of Sling Media (which enables TV broadcastings to be viewed by PC, PDA, Cell phones, etc through networking). However, “Mobile Mini-PC” is more business oriented, which differentiates itself from these two companies.

As this service is expected to start tomorrow, it only seems yesterday how amazed I was to be able to check my email via my cell phone. As a person involved in this telecommunication industry, I am excited but at the same time worried about the increased dynamics in mobile industry. I’m excited that it’s advancing rapidly but worried about having to constantly be updated in this area. Whether I want it or not, MNOs from all over the world will continue to provide improved services such as this and many changes affecting our daily lives will occur.

What’s your perspective on how this service industry would turn out to be?

    The problem with using headphones for an extended period of time is that most listeners suffer from what’s called “listener fatigue”. Before we explain what that is, let’s discuss how listening to loudspeakers works and compare that with listening to headphones.When we listen to a pair of loudspeakers, we hear sounds coming from those loudspeakers and to a lesser extent sounds that are reflected off any side or rear walls. These direct and reflected sounds provide spatial cues to our brains telling us where the loudspeakers are located and how big the room is.
