Video on the Move

A caption in the current issue of PCA says that "Video on the move is no longer a novelty, it's essential".

While my son might want me to look at a video of himself standing next to Kylie, I cannot, off the top of my head, think of any "essential" video content which I must have on the move.

What sort of content is "essential" to you (I do not count any sports content as "essential", nor election results!)?

On my laptop to be honest, I agree but this could be an age thing? I have an xda capable of displaying video, but never actually use the function.

Essential?; essential for who?.

Certainly not for me,

Could they mean that the ability of a device (phone/iplayer) to record and play video on the move is essential, or the device would be regarded as uncompetetive?

I don't know, just having a stab.

Ideal use would be when one is on the way to view a new house.

The estate agent could feed you blissful music and scenes of the new neighbours having their usual weekend 'come-along' street parties!

On a dangerous note, terrorists could use it to update their operatives, when on a mission.
But, GCH Q would appreciate this.

I'm also a little flummoxed. Video on the move may be essential to some but I suspect for the vast majority it isn't. I doubt it's even a consideration for most, let alone essential. Also worth noting that people prefer to text each other rather than speak via a video link.

Perhaps it's talking about teenagers watching music videos?
