Marc Westenburg replied to Michael Fienen's discussion Mobile Video Solutions
"Seriously? Android and iPhone are neck-and-neck on your campus? Not that i don't believe you, but do you have a stats rundown of current mobile usage and percentages that you'd be willing to share? As for video, we've thrown all of…"
