Point, Counterpoint: Sprint's Law of Mobility

"Things that make you go wireless" has a guest blogger, Russ McGuire, director of business strategy at Sprint. Russ made up the Law of Mobility:

"But what is a modern technology age without a law observing the fundamental truths that shape financial realities that will redefine our lives and our work over the coming years? Since such a law doesn’t appear to exist for the coming age, let me propose the Law of Mobility: That the value of any product increases with it's mobility. (Where mobility is the percent of time the customer can fully use the product.)

The age of mobility is being brought on because we've reached that moment in time when the cost of adding mobility to any prduct (at least any information-rich or digitizable product) has fallen (thanks to Moore's Law) to the point well below the value of adding mobility, meaning that mobility is now being built into every product."

I thought the law of mobility was: "The stupider your ringtone, the longer it will take you to answer your phone."
