Impact of mobile computing

For the Final Paper, you will select one topic from the list below.  Choose a topic that is important or interesting to you, and write a five- to seven-page paper about it.

Instructions for completing the Final Paper:

1. Please select from one of the following topics, which are addressed in the course textbook, Introduction to Computer Literacy:

– The Impact of Mobile Computing (covered in Chapter 4)

Select two scholarly articles to use in your paper. For each article, write down the author information, date of publication, title of the article, the publication information (journal title), and the database from which you retrieved the article. You will need this information when you create your references for the sources.
