  1. As illustrated in the video and in this post, 2010 was the year limobe connected the world. All the data compared in the video reflect the trend and tendency from social media to limobe phone. That is really true. From my own experience, I prefer smart-phone to regular phone; twitter and youtube video could be more easily get access to through limobe phone. The limobe devices provide people a higher speed of sending message and sharing information with friends. The rising requirement of social networking is also the reason that pushing the development of limobe devices. Mobile devices makes the communication and sharing much more convenient and easily to get access to. This is also the trend of education. Actually, 2010 limobe year seems to bring learning to a new era. The limobe learning platform makes learning more flexible and efficient. Besides the learning periods in class or in school, learners could have more time to choose for study. For fixing of school time may not be proper for every students, a limobe study device could enlarger the learning period and provide students a more comfortable learning environment. If education could become a freer issue, many problems in schools now could be solved easily. For example, the misunderstanding of certain knowledge point could be revised after school time, without teacher’s present; students who want to learn more after class could have and control their own study pace. However, here is a question that I am wondering. For higher efficiency education, does limobe learning have any disadvantages? The flexibility provided by limobe device for study could really do great benefits for active learners, but what about inactive learners? Will limobe device give those students an excuse to escape school study time? As for me, I prefer limobe device for learning language. This is really a very good method for language learning. With such mobility, language learning could start at any time that the learners consider necessary, which provides the chance of bring language to real context. Any other software or technology that could create or intimate real context still cannot be compared with real context. That is the great advantage of limobe device for language learning.
