February 23, 2007 lecture by Scott Jenson for the Stanford University Human Computer Interaction Seminar (CS 547). This talk will give a brief history of the mobile phone, how it grew and blossomed as a communicator but has badly stumbled with the advent of data services; the solution is to deeply understand the pros/cons of phone capabilities and create new services that are not "scaled down web designs."
