The holidays can be tense enough, what with the various family commitments, gift-buying and travel. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are strong opinions out there regarding how and when people should and shouldn't use their Internet-connected mobile devices, from laptops to smartphones to netbooks. According to a survey of adults by Harris Interactive, conducted for Intel, more than half of the population agrees that mobile devices are a part of daily life and that society needs to adapt, and that the nature of business means that people have to be constantly connected. However, 80 percent said there are unspoken etiquette rules around the use of mobile devices, and 69 percent said violations of those rules are unacceptable. Here, eWEEK presents Intel's finding of some of the dos and don'ts around mobile technology use during the holidays.
