If you are a college student, there’s a high chance that you bring at least one of these three devices to class with you: a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet. It doesn’t matter which type of mobile device you are accessing online materials with; it’s what you are using it for that is contributing to the chokehold of available bandwidth, particularly on campus where understandably students make up the largest population.

I’m a new-ish remote worker and, although I love 99% of everything associated with it, lately, after every virtual meeting I have, I’m feeling exhausted and drained. And not in the normal, everyday work exhausted and drained kind of way. It’s a peculiar combination of eye strain, headaches, and general malaise that I really only experience after a long day of virtual meetings. I was curious if others were feeling the same so I did a completely non-scientific study of my remote work friends to see how they’ve been feeling. Turns out, I’m not alone. Workers everywhere are going through a huge transition as the work from anywhere model has accelerated at breakneck speed since the pandemic.
