(Solution) COMP 150N Week 2 Assignment: Mobile Devices and Operating Systems Continued

Last week you got a brand-new computer provided to you by the research team. This week the team has found a security breach in their network and they need to make sure your computer is correctly setup. You will now also select your new mobile device.
