    Mobile Media

    Old School Tethering

    New School Tethering

    Using your mobile media device to connect to the Internet is really a great way to get connected when there’s no hot spot in sight.

    If you are out in a rural area or away from a hot spot, look to your phone to save the day.  By connecting or tethering your phone to your laptop or PC you can have internet access anywhere. Any phone with broad band access allows you to tether, and this can be done with a USB cable, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

    Mobile Media Providers

    There may be a few difficulties because your wireless provider is holding the cards on this access.  Some providers will not allow you to tether.  The reasons for that are some people try and download too much data.  When people tax the system it creates problems for the cellular networks. There are providers that allow you to do it, but they will charge you for it.  AT&T requires a tethering plan for the iPhone, for example. That will cost you $20 a month extra.

    When using tethering it is best to use it for small jobs like email or instant messaging.  You really do not want to use your cellular plan to down load music and video, you would surely go over you data plan and have to pay the piper at the end of the month and that would make tethering loose it’s cool luster very quickly.

    The actual tethering process used to be quite difficult; however some manufacturers have made it a lot easier now.  Smart phone have easy access to hookups just for this task.

    Mobile Media On The Move

    So, as we become more and more mobile the manufactures are helping us to maintain connectivity, as for them , they have created another income stream from this additional use of the cell phones.  However, being connected to the Internet is essential to our business these days so I guess in the end it is a win/win proposition.

      That is right Justin. Thanks for stopping by. We live in a very exciting time with technology going off the charts!!

      It will not be long till we are flying cars like the Jetsons, by the way the Jetsons was the first program ever to be broadcast in color on ABC-TV.

      That was in 1962, not so long ago.
