Bells and Whistles of Connectivity

It used to be that the “last mile” of connectivity was always the most at risk – the stretch of (usually) copper wire which actually connected highly engineer, high capacity backbone with an actual building or location. Is it possible that the last mile of our currently highly wireless era is really the “last two feet” – the distance between a briefcase, belt loop or purse and someone’s ears or eyes?
We have all been distracted with the ringtones, bells and whistles of devices trying to get the attention of their owners. The device does still have to be manipulated in order to yield its content. Clearly blue-tooth connected devices are a great accessory to help bridge the last two feet, but until they become much more discrete and intuitive, the last two feet will continue to be an issue.
