Mobile computing can improve the service you offer your customers. For example, when meeting with customers you could access your customer relationship management system – over the Internet – allowing you to update customer details whilst away from the office. Alternatively, you can enable customers to pay for services or goods without having to go to the till. For example, by using a wireless payment terminal diners can pay for their meal without leaving their table.

2. Have you ever heard of Jane Austen? Read this excerpt from one of her biographies and answer the questions in your notebook.
Jane Austen was an English writer that came into the world on December 16th, 1775, born to Reverend George Austen and Cassandra Austen. Growing up, the Austen children lived in an environment of open learning, creativity and dialog. Mr. Austen kept a large collection of literature in his home library, which Jane made extensive use of in both reading and writing endeavors. It became quite common for the family to invest time and energy into making home-based productions of existing plays or writing and acting out their own creations. One can only assume that it was in these exercises that the true talent of Jane Austen was being nurtured – through observation, improvisation, acting and participation.
With her formal education completed at a boarding school, Jane returns home permanently and sets out to pen the work First Impressions. Little did she know at the time that this single work would become her most popular and enduring piece, becoming the story we now know as Pride and Prejudice. The first draft was completed sometime in 1799. She wrote six novels and they are so undated that lots of movies are continually being made from them.
