Know Your J-Jargon

mobile: An umbrella term in technology that was long synonymous with cellular phones but has since grown to encompass tablet computing and netbooks. Sometimes the term is used interchangeably with "wireless." It generally refers to untethered computing devices that can access the Internet over radiofrequency waves, though sometimes also via wi-fi. Mobile technology usually demands a different set of standards — design and otherwise — than desktop computers, and has opened up an entirely new area for geo-aware applications.

... The issue came to a boil early this year when Lenoir City High School student Krystal Myers was denied permission to publish in the school newspaper an essay on atheism and the influence of Christianity on students at the school. The essay was subsequently published by the News Sentinel and other news outlets across the country.
