And just like that, the Mobile World Congress of 2013 has wrapped up. Hundreds of new technologies, devices and gadgets are now on the world stage.
In the midst of the latest tablet and thing-a-ma-bob, it's very easy to get caught up in the rat-race of the industry, forgetting the impact these new items could have.
