Legally mobile

The Economist has an article on the rapid rise of mobile devices across Africa http://tinyurl.com/5uts8kq. 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.
