When it comes to mobile data, would you rather 'set it and forget it' or get paid to play?

Great points, nbattson. That seems to be what the vendors are suggesting -- an interactive, real-time dashboard for making these changes. So, it'd be a one-time thing you did on the fly when you needed to access the video; not a permanent change. I'll be interested to see these dashboards implemented.

re: Playing the Mobile Data Game
I like to set and forget, but realise that with data caps in place there will need to be an interactive offering to access massive files like video every so often. Like last week I was working on a video using Dropbox as a common storage site for the team collaborating on the project. Checking the video results was very handy with my phone on the move....but the size of the files was BIG and my monthly plan is 60% used and its day 5.

Such a service would have to be very easy to activate and de-activate though.

I'm coming around to that mindset too. I want the lowest cost and Im willing to work for it a little, provided it's a simple interface and easy process.

I think I'd prefer the interactive model. My data usage varies, so it would be nice to pay relatively little during slow months and to not worry about a cap if I hit a spike in the first 2-3 days of a month.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
