I couldn't agree more. The ability to shift through this large amount of data quickly will differentiate future tools. Mobile security is a major concern. I call out some specific steps to help combat mobile security threats but more effort is needed by industry. The US Navy might (in proposal phase) spend $1M to make Android more secure. These type of efforts on an open platform really benefit everyone. Great comments everyone and awesome post Al! - Grant Heimbach, LabVIEW Product Marketing Manager, grant.heimbach@ni.com

Indeed there is a great evolution in the mobile technology, engineers are working very keenly to enhance the mobile technology so that different types of information can be transfered from the device to the mobile .Transfering data from device to mobile is not as simple as we consider because it needs an interface that can match with the mobile and the device .Applications have to be developed by the engineers .

I would think that monitoring applications are the vast majority of where apps will be used at least in the short term.  That reduces security concerns significantly because the emphasis is on viewing data.

Influence of mobile technology on data aquisition raises the issue of security. Mobiles are used in banking transactions, access company's private informations like emails. Mobiles have become target for the hackers. To overcome mobile security threats, there is a need to develop anti-virus software apps for mobiles.

Notarboca, Completely agree that the challenge is really gaining information versus more data.  That is definitely the differentiator. Thanks.

That's very true naperlou.  Critical thinking is becoming a lost skill for most.  The economic divide that's discussed in technology isn't just in access to devices.  There's a divide in the skills learned in school for analyzing and understanding information.

Definitely not surprising that mobile technology is having such an influence, but agree that this distinction is interesting. It seems that quality not quantity is a factor at work here, as it is in a lot of data-acquisition strategies.

That is an important distinction, although the understanding part does not really influence the gathering part that much.  Frankly, the skill sets are generally completely different.

I think of the most interesting points about the National Instruments paper is re: differentiation, i.e. not about gathering the most data, but understanding it faster.  This will be a key factor as use of mobile instrumentation begins to rise.
