"Mobile reaching a tipping point: Titus draws parallels between mobileÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s evolution today and the desktop web circa 1996/97 – about to reach mainstream popularity, spurred by the iPhone effect. And this growing acceptance will hold up despite the economic downturn: Ã¢â‚¬Å“As the world financial crisis impacts people on a day-to-day, the last thing youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to turn off is your mobile phone. You might change your data consumptive behaviour, but youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re likely to use more of your mobile device rather than less, because youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to have culled other means of entertainment. Think about the last dot.com crash, which was a microcosm of this experience – Web 2.0 and social media were invented by unemployed techies who needed to consume time with something fun to do. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m really excited to see what happens out of this crash.Ã¢â‚¬Â TitusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ predictions – cloud computing, geolocation and user-centered design."
