10 BILLION TINY SCREENS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD | ENDLESS INNOVATION | …BIGTHINK.COM

February 22, 2014 (AP/Big Think/TDN News) – Get ready for a brave new world where supercomputing mobile devices are so ubiquitous that they lead to entirely new business models in industries ranging from healthcare to education. Cisco predicts that, by the year 2016, there will be more mobile-connected devices in the world than humans. That is ten billion smart phones, relentlessly cranking out mobile data at an accelerating pace. According to Cisco’s Global Mobile Data Forecast Update 2011-2016, the amount of mobile data created worldwide has doubled in each of the past four years, and will continue to do for the foreseeable future. In the process, Internet consumption habits are also evolving, as we adapt to the new computing capabilities of our tiny screens. Dominic Basulto, Big Think
