We've Come a Long Way Since Car Phones!
Hello readers! If you're on this site you're either a Windows Phone enthusiast, a smartphone aficionado, interested in understanding where Microsoft is taking this platform (or is that "platforms"?), or stumbled across the site while surfing. In any of these cases, I would like to introduce myself as a new Contributing Editor for Windows Phone Thoughts. I have been frequenting this site for some time, and have found it to be informative and insightful, two characteristics I hope to continue with my writings and analysis.
My first mobile phone was a car phone in an HP company car, way back around 1995, and I've been intrigued with mobile phones ever since. Do you remember that first feeling of awe as you made your first phone call not in a phone booth or not from your land line in your house or office? Fifteen years later I still see lots of room for innovation in this wonderful communication technology, and, if you're like me, you love to track the developments and to experience the benefits. I have been working in the technology field for 25 years, as a software developer, systems engineer, architect, process consultant and for the past 10 years as a management consultant. I'm interested in both the consumer and business application of technology, and will endeavour to bring both perspectives to this site. I'm looking forward to some lively discussions, so please join in as we follow this marketplace and the technologies that pervade it.
