Phone Bill in Figure 1

Words: 1992 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96868641

However we measure time, it is outside our control, and was before we learned how to measure it the linear way we do now. Time has real personal and collective qualities as our phone bill analysis demonstrated above, where distance is large enough that one person born at the exact same 'moment' as someone else, is actually older because of their position on the earth. And differences become apparent for the same individual at different periods. Sometimes time seems to pass slowly when you are waiting for something but moves faster when you have to solve an elusive problem. Likewise a period of time can seem longer beforehand than after, and in the distant past or future. So, two people, or all of them, could experience time at different rates, and place different values on those rates, all at the 'same time.'

Free time is time when an individual can…… [Read More]

" Although she had very little food for herself, she always had a great deal to give to others. She looked like a grandmother from an old-fashioned movie, although I couldn't give Marie a fairytale ending, only a ramp and a mended, but still-broken shack.

Marie would stay with us as we worked, anxious to be of help in any way that she could: she always offered us a handkerchief for our brows or a cold drink when we needed those things the most. I knew that living without air conditioning was normal for her, and so I tried to will myself not to care. She chatted with us, and she often told me how much I reminded her of her son, now grown, who lived far away.

Every day a few minutes before eleven, she would excuse herself. In the stillness of the heat, I would hear the phone…… [Read More]

Phone Use While Driving

Words: 1433 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 65331736

Mobile Phones

One of the most important concepts in public safety is the idea of "accidents." That is the wrong word for a collision that was avoidable either through attention or preventative measures. There are very few accidents on the roads. There are collisions, and they are caused by either mechanical error or human error. The word 'accident' lets people off the hook for their mistakes, mistakes that nobody should make if they are doing their job. The reality is that there are a lot of things that people do to cause collisions. One is that they take their attention away from the task at hand. When a person is operating a 2000-lb, traveling at a speed sufficient to induce deadly force, one may wish to pay attention, to prevent collisions. Mobile phones are just one of many sources of driver distraction, but there should be penalties associated with driving…… [Read More]

Safe Driving and Standardized Cell

Words: 1029 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 112426



Problems to be addressed:

There are several problems associated with the issue of cell phone use while driving and the ineffective regulations to restrict the use of mobile phones on the road. First, the increased use of these devices while driving has significant impacts on driving performance. This is because mobile phone use during driving distracts the driver physically, cognitively, and visually. The distractions contribute to the inability of drivers to maintain required speed, lateral position, and throttle control on the road. Since the driving performance reduces, the risk of crashes and accidents on the roads increases. Studies have shown that drivers miss 13% targets when talking and 24% when dialing or texting (Brace, Young & egan, 2007).

Secondly, cell phone while driving contributes to a major social problem of increased crash risk since it endangers the lives of passengers, drivers, and passersby. In addition to the distractions it causes…… [Read More]

Marketing Plan for Combined Home and Cell

Words: 1471 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 39781757

Marketing Plan for Combined Home and Cell Phones:

Home and cellular phones have transformed the communications arena since they have revolutionized the perceptions of people regarding voice communications. Traditionally, home phones have been the most commonly used tools for voice communications while cellular phones remained inaccessible to many customers because of their high costs. However, in the past few years, both home and cell phones have been widely used as communication gadgets. The use of cell phones has been fueled by the investment of time and resources to develop the system's capacity and lessen their costs as well as the emergence of several cellular phone companies. While the traditional home phones are still in use across many residential places, cell phones have become increasingly common because they have been developed into large-scale consumer products. The focus on marketing both home and cell phones acts as a new positioning and beneficial…… [Read More]

Smart Phones What Exactly Are They What

Words: 866 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 24305415

Smart phones, what exactly are they? What differentiates smart phones from feature phones is their ability to do multitasking and run applications. First, there were PDAs (Personal Digital Assistant) which had functions like e-mail, web connectivity, to do list and few other computer-like functions while cell phones were used for calling and messaging mostly. A Smartphone is a combination of PDA and feature phone.

Changes over the past five years

Apple, to begin with, played an important role in bringing smart phones to the level where they were made available to mass consumers. That was three years ago. However, smart phones are the entity which existed in one form or the other since almost 19-20 years from now. The main difference between the earlier ones and the more recent ones is that the earlier ones were primarily used as enterprise devices and were too expensive to be acquired by most…… [Read More]

Daily teleconferences with business officers and frequent irregular visits by the same and other business officers will ensure compliance and efficiency standards are being met. Key stakeholders in the factory could eventually include certain business users and clients, and in this event procedures for their own monitoring and inspection of manufacturing processes and conditions can of course be developed and implemented, allowing for a broader range of monitoring goals and entities,

Architecture/Design Constraints

The architecture of the proposed factory must primarily focus on cost-effectiveness and efficiency. Minimizing environmental impact, both in real terms and in aesthetics, must also be taken into consideration. In this latter regard, location can drastically effect architecture and associated costs. Design constraints, also, must be geared towards maximizing efficiency. Clean rooms will be needed for some of the components used in manufacturing, and these areas should be both separate yet easily accessible from the other areas…… [Read More]

In that regard, a deliberately quiet exchange between colleagues on a matter important enough to discuss in the library is usually permitted in person. But for the rules necessary to address wholly inappropriate types of conversations (and volumes) of obnoxious cell phone users in restaurants and libraries, such harsh rules would be unnecessary.

The reason cell phones must be banned, absolutely, from restaurants, libraries, and even gyms is simply because people whose cell phone habits are completely obnoxious ruin it for the rest of us. People who use cell phones appropriately tend to share certain traits: (1) they speak in the lowest possible volume necessary, (2) they purposely turn away from others and shield their conversations with their bodies as much as possible, (3) they cover their other ear, (4) they understand the difference between situations where "necessary" conversations are acceptable but purely social conversations inadvisable or offensive, based on…… [Read More]

Marketing Challenges -- E T Phone

Words: 571 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 93173264



Applying the Data to Address the Apparent Challenges

On the basis of the Digitron marketing survey, ETPH will have to focus its marketing efforts in the following specific directions: First, it is essential to create a campaign that will increase the potential interest among those who have no current perceived need for cellular phone service. Second, that effort should emphasize the many situations and circumstances where the need for mobile phone capabilities are most useful. Third, future marketing campaigns should emphasize the convenient design and portability of the product and the fact that subscribing to cellular phone service provides only increasing flexibility and convenience for the user and does not in any way necessarily decrease the user's ability to choose not to respond to incoming calls.

Marketing Strategy

Based on the marketing research, the first ETPH marketing campaign should feature users in depictions of situations in which the target audience…… [Read More]

. The mobile business market has seen significant of uptake of 2E (mobile sales-force and field service) solutions and Microsoft has the chance to develop its offerings around its acquisitions, adding mobile functionality. Microsoft partners with many application vendors across the board and moving too heavily into the application space would incense many. However, there is viability in developing a mid-market mobile application proposition, given the unconsolidated nature of offerings from operators, traditional ISVs, start-ups and mobile middleware players.

Threats

In the device OS market, as at desktop level and in the server-room, Linux clearly represents a threat to Microsoft, and one it expends much energy playing down. Although there has been little uptake of Linux to date specifically as an operating system for multimedia cell phones, there are many who are not keen to implement end-to-end Microsoft solutions. Linux will give these companies added freedom in choosing applications, middleware…… [Read More]

Cell Phones (Technology) On Communication

Cell phones and other cellular communication equipment are omnipresent in today's digital age, with roughly 1.5 billion cellular phones used, at present, across the globe; on an average, 75 billion SMSs are sent globally, in a month (Merry, Domlija & Mackenzie, 2005). While the use of cellular communication has greatly contributed to the area of communication, cellular interferences have hampered functioning in various contexts, including driving, parenting task completion, and enrolment in academic courses. Strayer and colleagues (2005) proved that cognitive impairments linked to cell phone usage while driving may be the same as those linked to drunken driving. Impacts of distractions from cell phones have been observed in laboratory as well as naturalistic settings. Here, the word 'distraction' implies the unintentional inattention to the task at hand, which is characteristic of unlooked-for events (e.g. a call on one's cell phone). By contrast, the word…… [Read More]

rapid movement of the modern age and the vast usage of technological equipment, it has become a constant question on whether radio frequencies are damaging to human health. Cell phones are known to emit relatively high doses of electromagnetic waves, which in some research, has been pinpointed to the adverse effect that it has on males, namely the issue on fertility. eports have been made indicating that cell phones might be another risk factor regarding the rise of male infertility due to its frequency emissions. While previous research has found no conclusive tie-ins to the phenomena, the latest technology and data have shown the contrary, though even this research is still subject to much scrutiny. Overall, there are too many variables to indicate that cell phones would be a main cause for male fertility, not without discussing the various other factors that help infertility along.

For specialty goods, however, brand and packaging are very significant (Nickels, McHugh, & McHugh, 2005). These are items that are purchased because of their brand of packaging. In other words, the person that goes to a jeweler to purchase a Rolex watch with a gift box and papers will not settle for a Timex in a plastic box because it is cheaper. Cell phones are also considered to be specialty goods because packaging, brand, and features matter very strongly to many of the people that purchase them. These people may be interested in whether the phone offers text messaging, camera features, or eb access, among other features. They may also be interested in what they can save or what they receive along with their phone, which means that they will be interested in irelesstoyz because the company offers many important promotions that customers will see as being valuable.

Culture and media cannot be separated and hence advertising has a strong impact on culture and vice versa. It is interesting to see how media influence behavior and at the same times, accepts cultural changes and reflects the impact through advertising. One major example of this is the use of wireless communication. With increase in use of all wireless devices like ipods, iPhones and cell phones, the advertising has also taken on a new meaning ad method. Mobile advertising is now a common phenomenon where people get offers and deals even simple advertising messages through their wireless devices.

This shows how cultural changes impact advertising and how advertising in turn affects cultural trends. Advertising serves a very important purpose whether we admit it or not. It allows us to choose from a wide variety of alternatives. But what happens when advertising becomes a little too invasive. There is a good…… [Read More]

Type in "global warming" on Google search engine and access to more than fifteen million web sites will appear. One such web site is "Natural Resource Defense Council" at http://www.nrdc.org/globalarming/default.asp, which contains a wealth of information concerning global warming (Global pp). Those who believe in global warming assert that higher temperatures will produce dangerous consequences such as drought, disease, floods, and lost ecosystems (Global pp). According to the theory, carbon dioxide and other air pollution from sources such as coal-burning power plants and automobiles, collects in the atmosphere and creates a "thickening blanket" that traps the sun's heat and causes the planet's temperature to increase (Global pp). Over the past fifty years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history and scientists predict…… [Read More]

Mobile Commerce on Home Control System

Words: 1893 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 40386035

home control system using mobile commerce -- or, how your cell phone can connect you to your home when you are away from home

For better or for worse, the cell phone technology has changed modern communication and modern life. Mobile communication systems have undoubtedly made modern human beings more 'connected' to one another, or at least more able to talk to, or to reach one another, at any point in time. Now, an individual with a 'switched on' cell phone can always be accessed through the use of mobile cell phone technology -- barring any interference from poor connections or poor service, of course! However, besides simply being able to talk to others more easily, mobile phones can also make it easier to access other aspects of one's daily existence, from one's calendar, list of frequently called numbers, and yes, one's home.

The ability of mobile commerce to connect…… [Read More]

The Drivers of Consumer Behavior

Words: 741 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 56939196

Samsung Cell Phones

When looking at the consumer behavior model using an environmental lens and what drives consumers as they behave consistently with this model, there are probably three things that drive Samsung cell phone users to buy and behave as they do. First, the smartphones that Samsung sells allow people to become and remain connected as they live their lives. Whether it be social media, texting, phone calls or other things, people want to remain connected to their friends, family and the world they live in even if they happen to be on the go at any given time. Another consumer behavior pattern that holds true is that there is peer pressure to have the biggest and greatest thing. Even people that are relatively modest when it comes to their income and wealth will have no problem plopping down their hard-earned money to buy an iPhone or a Samsung…… [Read More]

" Turkle claims that "our fragile planet needs our action in the real," which is exactly what the little girl was trying to point out. Her appreciating the animatronic animals more than the real ones is a product of technology saturation.

Technology has become an annoyance: we all experience the "sense of encroachment of the device" on our personal time and it is difficult to cut ourselves off from the world. Yet technology is a blessing. Turkle points out that the shy and inhibited are hiding behind their virtual selves. Indeed they are: to their advantage. Many readers would agree that technology has allowed the shy and socially awkward to engage socially with others without having to sweat or take anxiety medication.

Being constantly connected with the world is a choice we make. Technology is not deadening us to the world, as Turkle implies. Quite the opposite: technology is enhancing…… [Read More]

Strategic Management Competing With Apple

However the lack of stability in these partnerships is a major weakness for the company today. In 2008, Apple released the following graphic illustrating just how pervasive they believed video-based devices would be, which clearly makes the value of digital content providers critical to their future business model.

Market Assessment of Video-Capable iPods

source: (Apple Investor Relations, 2008).

Implementation: Apple will need to work closely with their research and development team to see what Apple is bringing to the table. Despite the success of the iPod and the iPhone, Apple should continue making products that are familiar to the customer but more user friendly. By doing so Apple can offer their customers products at a lower cost. In addition, Apple can also cut costs by using outsourced research and development teams.

Implementing a competitively featured product relevant to Apple then needs to take into account a business model that reflects…… [Read More]

The ramifications of creating a more equitable partner ecosystem that respect the needs and profit requirements of digital content providers will serve to create greater differentiation faster than products (Berling, 1993). Apple's innovation has been driven at the product level, yet they are faltering in the areas of partnerships (Abel, 2008). What is needed are products that compete with Apple at a functional level yet have a more open architecture that allows content providers to retain their margins and profitability.

Evaluation

In evaluating the performance of the differentiation strategy the metrics associated with content use and transfers which Apple relies on heavily (Casadesus-Masanell, Hervas-Drane, 2010) need to be added to with profit per partner as well. Only then, will an open

What are some critiques? Ideas for future directions? (say something beyond what is presented in the article.)

Future research might attempt to analyze a real driving scenario, which is bound to have a different cognitive affect on both the driver and the conversation partner.

Is the sample sufficiently large and representative of the population of concern?

The sample is sufficiently large, but not representative of the population of concern because each state and each region will have different styles of driver. Also, familiarity with the road and region might affect driver performance.

The company emerged atop the buzz trouncing Samsung's Galaxy and Apple's iPhone (Siren).

Overall, Nokia's global outreach is especially impressive; they have traversed the digital revolution through subtle online marketing strategies geared towards creating a formidable marketing framework to enable the company reclaim its rightful place in the global market. Commentators and researchers alike have commended Nokia's aggressive marketing strategies noting that other mobile manufacturers should emulate it. There is still some room for improvement for the company. For instance, they should put on ad campaigns for online sweepstakes, quizzes and competitions. They should also liaise with mobile service providers such as Sprint and Verizon to bring up special offers (Niccolai).

Conclusion

As the world transforms into a small digital ICT village, marketers have expressed the need to alter the traditional mode of reaching out to consumers. This has called for a paradigm shift in marketing and advertising strategies for…… [Read More]

Social Research -- Public Behavior

This was the most consistent pattern observed in connection with this experiment. The researcher concluded that this was a function of the convergence of two independent social norms and expectations: namely, the expectation of politeness with respect to the dependent variable (i.e. door-holding behavior) and the independent social norm and expectation that males will be chivalrous in their interactions with females in virtually all ordinary circumstances, including those involving complete strangers. The significance of this pattern is even greater in relation to the other categories of patterns observed.

For example, generally, the experimenter determined whether or not the relative distance and speed between successive individuals was appropriate to create an expectation that the door holding or non-door holding behavior would be relevant for inclusion. if, in the experimenter's best attempt at an objective judgment, the individuals were too far from one another and/or that the second individual was moving too…… [Read More]

SOCIOLOGICAL TERMS (Terms in Italics)

Varsity Jackets, Subcultures, and the Function of Sports in Society

In sociological terms, the varsity letter jackets worn by the students would be considered status symbols because they have specific social connotations that correspond to achievements that are valued by the group. They represent group identity in high school based on membership in sports teams. In many cases, sports teams also feature subcultures in which group norms and values are used by members of the group to maintain a degree of exclusivity to membership in their group as well; in the high school setting, these would typically be referred to as cliques.

In general, competitive sports can be viewed from the structural-functional sociological approach or from the symbolic-interaction approach. In the former, sports would be viewed primarily in connection with their functions, such as a means through which participants maintain physical fitness or pursue enjoyment;…… [Read More]

TARGET CUSTOMERS

The product is designed for and aimed at a specific market that can make use of its LoJack feature integrated in a cellular phone device to track down the intended individual by means of a comprehensive and accurate mapping. Hence, the target customers are parents who desire to keep track of their children but due to their rigorous work routines and other preoccupations, are unable to do so. These could specifically be parents who are doing a full day job and belong to professions that require higher dedication and involvement for instance medicine, architecture and engineering. Single parents who work full time and find it both difficult and depressing to keep track of their children may also be considerably interested in this product. In any case, it can be safely assumed that all parents need to enjoy the security of knowing where precisely their child is at a particular time. This eliminates misinformation on part of the child, and would also in retrospect, cut down on incidences of juvenile delinquency and the like. Also spouses and friends who wish to keep track of each other and be connected at all time can make use of this innovation. Therefore the product should focus on the aforementioned customers and appropriate marketing planning must be laid out to interest these customers in the most effective manner.

The overarching contribution of the automobile industry to the United States economy is considerable. Approximately 1.067 million intermediate job are engaged in the direct support of the industry. The spin-off jobs that are associated with the industry -- those people who are employed in direct and intermediate positions -- adds an additional 1.765 million to the total job count associated with U.S. motor vehicle manufacturing activities. This brings the total number of jobs to nearly 3.145 million jobs. The ratio of direct employment to total jobs created has a multiplier of 10.0 (3,145,000 / 313,000) -- an excellent ratio in any investment. To put it in simpler, more comprehensible terms, for every single job in the automobile manufacturing industry, there are an additional nine jobs in the entire sector.

Private sector compensation that is associated with the total number of jobs is about $206…… [Read More]
