For MCDM Com 597 – Post 1:
I am in the minority it seems in that I don’t understand the value of mobile video. I love web videos and enjoy them on my laptop, however, on the mobile phone there are just too many limitations and it feels too intrusive or burdensome on people around me. Why would you watch a video on your small phone display with loud sound that is necessary to really enjoy a video, when you could watch it somewhere on a larger laptop screen?
Potentially this would be advantageous when you wanted to see a video immediately or remotely. However, I find in these situations, I’m generally around a bunch of people who probably don’t want to hear the videos. Yes, I know you can plug in your ear phones and that intrusion goes away, but I just see the negatives outweighing the positives generally in these situations. I really am a more visual person, and that is probably why I can’t deal. Bah humbug.
