Are you playing Vortex?

It's amazing what can fit on an iPhone. Music and movies and games, and that doesn't even begin to touch the communication power of talking and texting and emailing. So, what does Vortex (or thousands of other iPhone apps) have to do with a college internship?

The question is simple: Is your internship site the appropriate place to play a game on your phone or your laptop or the company's desktop?

The answer is even simpler: No, games are not appropriate.
