Rachel King is the author. She is qualified to write this article. There is
a blog at the end with her credentials and background career

affiliations to prove she is knowledgeable of this information


I believe this information is accurate and has been supported by the

additional blog info about the author and/or source.


The purpose of this article is to inform society of how much more
helpful a mobile device can be for work. I believe the author is

objective in approaching the subject.


5. Two Scholarly Articles from CCBC Database:

A Smartphone Maps the Way, Now Indoors by Brian Chen

Mobile Banking Adoption: A Literature Review by Shaikh Aijaz and

Heikki Karjaluoto
Key words used were : new mobile technology, emerging technology
Databases used: Lexis Nexis Newspapers and Science Direct. I used
these because I am familiar with Lexis Nexis and comfortable finding
information. I used Science Direct to try something new. It took a little

more time navigating but overall was just as reliable and helpful.
6. In my opinion, the article Blinq Enhances Your Favorite Messaging
Applications with Extra Information by Sarah Perez is the easiest to access. It
is the most current and its authority is authentic. Rachel King is a credible
source to create the article. The other two articles A Smartphone Maps the
Way, Now Indoors by Brian Chen and Mobile Banking Adoption: A Literature
Review by Shaikh Aijaz and Heikki Karjaluoto were great finds as well. They
were a little more difficult to find but they are current and credible.
