Buffering, Begone

Caption: NYU-Poly professor Shivendra Panwar is leading the development of streamloading -- a process that allows users to load most of the content of data-heavy videos ahead of time, so that mobile devices can later layer on only minimal data to complete the video -- saving mobile data usage charges and precious mobile bandwidth.
