Coming Technology: Prentice Newsletter Searches on Cellphones

History: The push to develop cellphone technology has multiplied the number of features available to cellphone users. Many people use their cellphones to search for information online. Google, for example, has recently launched a beta version of its Google Maps service for cellphones which combines maps, directions and satellite images. Currently, in order to obtain information from the Prentice Newsletter, one must use a computer to send an internet query. While most people do have access to a computer, some time is required to go to the computer.

Cellphone Program: Most people have quicker access to a cellphone than to a computer. The Prentice Newsletter is contemplating launching a program which will enable cellphone users to query our Prentice Newsletter database for information contained in the articles which have been published since the Spring of 1997. Although only in the planning stages, current thinking is that such information will be available by keying in (1) the sender's name and email address, and (2) the name and birth date of the person about whom the information is sought.

The sender's cellphone query will be logged at the Newsletter and a reply will be sent setting out any information found as a result of that query, or requesting additional clarifying information.

More Information: If you would like more information on the subject, please contact us at the Prentice Newsletter. Be sure to give the full title and date of this article in the Subject line of the email.

Caution: If you don't use the above email link, your email to us may be deleted as spam by our email filter.
