Listening to the architect of many IBM mobile applications, explain his reference architecture, he made some very interesting points, Now it must be said that they were made because the IBM products help fix them, and so I thought I should point that out.

We’ve all done it,   or seen it happen,  a phone, a drink, a careless swipe of the arms and tragedy ensues. Something like a third of accidents that kill phones are due to water damage.
