Cooper talked about the jitterbug and the smart antenna. Doctors (at least in newsreels) made house calls, helped by

People are mobile and its personal phones they wanted, describing the "war" between AT&T (Joel Engle) and Motorola.

Your phone, or something like it, will be checking your vital signals, and a computer somewhere else will be checking the data.
The "annual physical" concept will be worthless, compared to measuring data all the time.

Cooper: "Privacy is a thing of the past." Privacy requires a new mindset among people. Safer: Hiding something is an undeniable human right.

Cooper has a Droid.
