Hit the refresh button, Mobility Matters is now sending data into the World Wide Web! Mobility Matters is about everything Smart Phone, Tablet, Laptop, Apps, Web Programming, Social Networking, and anything else mobile that I find of interest.
To briefly introduce myself, my name is Mike Pidanick, I currently work as a System Analyst for eBusiness in the health insurance industry. I am also an entrepreneur preparing to launch my own web development company! I am always striving to unlock more and more of my potential and to be the very best that I can be. I am a gadget and technology enthusiast with a particular interest in Smart Phones, Tablets and Web Technologies.
My main gear consists of a Dell Studio 1749 Laptop running Windows 7 which I love so far and my trusty BlackBerry Tour 9630, which while no longer top of the line has been a faithful friend none the less.
