Legally mobile

The Economist has an article on the rapid rise of mobile devices across Africa So if we are thinking of teaching English in Africa maybe we need to brush up on our m-learning skills!

Another article in the same issue provides these quotes: “E-mail disclaimers are one of the minor nuisances of modern office life, along with fire drills, annual appraisals and colleagues who keep sneezing loudly … They are assumed to be a wise precaution. But they are mostly, legally speaking, pointless.”

How many times have you ticked a box to download a programme, book a ticket etc claiming that you had actually read the terms and conditions? I wonder how legally-binding they are.
