As the horsepower packed into mobile devices gets ever greater, more full-featured forms of multitasking are possible.

I wonder how this relates to the unemployment numbers for the Houston area…
The total personal income for individuals living in the Houston region grew 3.1 percent between 2009 and 2010, according to figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.
The bureau released total personal income data for 366 metropolitan areas. Total personal income is the income received by all people from all sources in a given year.
Personal income among the metro areas increased 2.9 percent in 2010 after falling 1.9 percent in 2009, according to the data.
Houston was No. 5 among the top areas, with total personal income of $281.8 billion, up from $273.2 billion in 2009.
