'How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything'

Published on Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Mobile Wave Book Cover by Michael SaylorMIT-educated Michael J. Saylor’s The Mobile Wave – How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything, presents the impact of mobile intelligence – the fifth wave of computer technology, and what sweeping changes this will bring into our lives.  Like the Agricultural Revolution that transformed humanity from nomadic groups of hunter-gatherers into city dwellers, creating a foundation for the great city-states, and like the Industrial Revolution that ushered in the modern mechanized economies we see today, the Mobile Revolution will be the tipping point technology that will launch us from the present Information Revolution to all things mobile.
