Internet and Society

The Internet and American Society

In the history of humankind there have been very few inventions which have completely transformed human society. Inventions like the wheel, agriculture, astronomy and geometry have all transformed humankind from uncivilized barbarians into a creatures of culture and society. The invention of science, discovery of electricity, the atom, and other inventions have then propelled the human race forward into a more technologically society, one which is primarily an information-based society. As a result of these technological advancements, scientists have been able to create something that has again transformed human society, one which has in a relatively short time, infiltrated every aspect of scholarship, research, business, and life in general. Beginning with the computer, and an idea that many computers could be joined together and their information shared; scientists and researchers have created an interconnected system of personal, business, academic, research, library, and…… [Read More]

Internet Business Plan What Does

(Horticulture and the advantages of using the Internet Technology)

What are the disadvantages of conducting business, large or small, on the Internet? They may be many. However, the most important disadvantages are: it can actually create a feeling of isolation; the businessman may feel that he has become isolated. This means that he may get the feeling that the World Wide Web is faceless and emotionless, and thus the business too is isolated and inhuman, devoid of contact with the real world and other human beings. After all, humans are social creatures, and such isolation would most often lead to the development of a feeling of depression. Another disadvantage is that since the World Wide Web is such a large area to work in; it encompasses in some cases the entire globe, and there is such a large amount of information generated on the web, it becomes very difficult to…… [Read More]

This double-edged sword of new technology is being increasingly being relied on for capturing knowledge in the organization, serving as a vital catalyst for higher levels of collaboration Condon, 55):

According to Jorge Lopez, industry research chief at Gartner, the focus of it has been to cut costs by automating tasks that can be broken down into discrete processes. But it has achieved all it can in that respect and any further improvements would be marginal. The next frontier for it is the non-routine work that lends itself less readily to automation - and here the talk is of 'augmentation': helping people come to decisions more quickly, and helping support any consequent action.

With knowledge workers, such as managers, who deal with non-routine kinds of work, the idea of productivity is different. As (management guru Peter) Drucker pointed out, you don't pay them by the hour but by results,' says…… [Read More]

S. stays one step ahead of the hackers. This is not easy, but the DoD could not have possibly thought it would be.

Proper defenses, enhanced offensive capabilities and strategies to reduce risk by taking some sensitive data offline will all work to deliver better results in e-spionage of the United States. The Internet has become globalized, and nothing can take that back. That there are threats as the result of globalization is nothing new -- it is simply another arena for age-old international political traditions. How we manage the threats and take advantage of the opportunities is the most important aspect to this problem -- and this means proper isolating and neutralizing of viral threats. By addressing the issue of e-spionage effectively, the Internet can still be viewed as a net benefit for the United States.

It discusses how each of the different sites varies in terms of its character, and in terms of its usage. The chapter on safety reiterates the fact that users view the anonymity of the web as an excuse to engage in riskier behaviors than they otherwise would, and that this is a mistake.

A second lesson learned is that e-commerce can be used for creating a unique product based on customer requirements. Michael Dell quickly realized that his build-to-order PC business could grow much faster than his small shop in Austin, Texas would allow for. He chose to create one of the first product configurators that could be used on a website, making it a unique differentiator relative to all other PC companies selling through e-commerce channels before (Jones, et.al.). The product configurator Dell created has specifically designed to allow customers online to work at their own pace, and even abandon a product configuration midway through building it (Liu, Mackie, 292). Customers online could also mix and match accessories for the PCs first, and then their entire laptops as well. Soon, customers were creating dozens of laptops and then printing out the configurations and comparing them to see which best fit their needs…… [Read More]

The market was not ready for wireless even five years ago, but that has definitely changed. When Levi's launched its latest 501s marketing campaign earlier this year, a wireless site was a central part of its digital strategy. Now there are nearly 30,000 public wireless "hot spots" in the United States. Advertisers believe that now that wireless has finally become a medium with which consumers are comfortable, the next stage is its exploitation by brands. Many feel that the wireless sites will increasingly become a part of marketing campaigns.

The semi-technical arena is seeing the rise of numerous new search engines, especially since ones such as Google have become so successful. Increasing numbers of Web surfers are going to alternative search engines that specialize in finding certain kinds of information or offering additional capabilities to well-known search sites (Kharif).

This paper explores some of the best and well-known cites and sites around the world for information and health care. Early in the 21st century, the World Health Organization made its first attempt to rank the quality of health care in approximately 200 countries.

Internet Communication

The face of literacy is changing. In 1955, being literate meant being able to read and write well enough to do such things as read a newspaper and write letters. In the year 2005, however, many more demands are made on reading and writing skills. In addition to being able to read such things as magazines and books and being able to write letters or other short written communication, the majority of people now communicate extensively using computers in the form of email, news groups, instant messaging, mailing list, weblogs, and web pages. These methods, all of which rely heavily on writing, have put more emphasis on written communication than ever before.

The Smart Library on Literacy and Technology notes that literacy instruction has already begun to reflect emphasis on the computer in both reading and writing. In fact, computer technology has changed not only how we write…… [Read More]

"What's more, many teachers lack technical support; unlike businesses, most schools don't have an it guy down the hall to save the day when computers go haywire." (Wohl, 2001) central contemporary concern is the problem of Internet security and access to quality information.

These administrative procedures once again require technical expertise and time on the part of the teacher.

Another aspect that is of concern in today's online environment is that while there is a plethora of information available, this is not always of the best quality. Many teachers and institutions have banned student access to open -source sites such as Wikipedia for this reason.

This is because it is quite difficult to gain a customer but extremely easy to lose one, and when the marketer has made a customer, then he must ensure that he maintains a minimum of contact with him so that he may be able to pitch his sales again to an individual who is already a customer better than he would be able to a new customer. The third tip is that the marketer must avoid making exaggerated claims about his product or service even if it may actually be true. This is because the customer is always wary of false claims and would automatically tend to avoid such websites. Another tip is that if a discount and a bonus were to be combined within one particular offer, then it would be so very irresistible that the customer would have no option than to purchase it.

Internet Advertising as a Career Choice

Using the Internet, entrepreneurs can run sophisticated businesses from anywhere. That is why places like oulder, Colorado, now have some of the densest concentrations of technology-related businesses in the country, most of them small independent firms. The desire for and availability of more lifestyle choices will continue to drive economic decentralization. Splintering consumer tastes are also moving the industry away from its centralized past. Cable, satellite broadcasting, and the Internet all feed Americans' appetites for customization. This trend has helped create three new broadcast networks and more specialized media, while the market share of mass network programming has declined sharply. Larger media companies now depend on small-scale producers to meet the new consumer demands. (1)

According to the current laws, which are not really up to speed yet, an employer can monitor employee email if he or she has a legitimate business purpose for doing so. There is a belief that, because the employer has an email and computer system for employee use, the computer system (as well as the resulting email and browsing history) is the property of the employer. hile this makes sense, some states have enacted 'right to privacy' laws so that companies cannot make this claim against their employees and cannot monitor what they do on the Internet during company time. It then becomes difficult to balance the need to supervise and control employees with the need to make sure that those same employees' rights are not being violated by their employers. There is no clear legal rule as to what is acceptable and what is not in the field of…… [Read More]

Customers prefer Internet marketing because Internet provides the ability to easily custom tailor specifications, such as in the case of buying a computer online from Dell. In addition, Internet search engine offers consumers to find the best bargain price of a product and service.

Internet Ethics and the consumer's private existence in an unstable regulatory environment -- untapped economic waters in a wild, wild west of identity theft and chronic consumption

hen it comes to Internet ethics, even in the absence of legal requirements, businesses must themselves self-regulate when it comes to consumer privacy. If they do not, it is likely that the government will step in to do so, as the government has done in the European Union. This will only hurt businesses economically, and do damage to the equal ethical obligation corporations owe to shareholders. Furthermore, good business sense is about trust between the consumer and the business, and this is not honored when businesses unfairly spy upon casual surfers of their websites, or use consumer data for their own profit as well as research and marketing purposes.

The marketing objectives for the Wii launch centered on being able to create a gaming platform that would allow for an entirely different type of game strategy to be put into place (Turner, 2007). This strategy centered on multi-generational consumers, and concentrated on creating activity, both physical and intellectual, to create an engaging experience but also lead to the development of an entirely new market segment. Nintendo relied on the concepts in Blue Ocean Strategy (Kim, Mauborgne, 2004) to plan and execute their product development, Internet marketing campaign and service strategies. The specific objectives from a marketing standpoint were as follows. First, to launch the Wii through multiple communications and sales channels, ranging from the Internet with the use of YouTube videos, heavy reliance on bloggers and key influences as evidences by their Web 2.0 strategy, in addition to a series of television commercials that approached the American and European customers as needed voices and inputs to make the product successful. The two Japanese travelers with the Wii were seeking feedback -- in effect they were offering the consumers who played with it ownership of the Wii's identity. The use of traditional print and banner ads online were supplanted with intensive print advertising in gaming magazines, again targeting key influencers. The television commercials were used to generate global awareness while specific communications strategies across a variety of print and online mediums were used for attracting key influencers' interest and keeping it up to the launch.

Company's corporate image and brand management

The Wii was the first product ever for Nintendo where they allowed for it to have its own identity outside of the branding conventions and structures they had created in the past (Kemp, 2006)

Internet and Terrorism by James

Words: 857 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 38458852

The author stresses that overreacting would not hinder the terrorists, as they would simply seek other means to access the technology and innocents would likely be bared from access. s with so many other documents associated with the CSIS there is a clear sense that the organization and its members seek to offer logical rather than counterproductive solutions to battling terrorism.

There is no traditional literature review within this work. There are only a few quotes, lacking citation a clear opinion piece that offers little in the way of evidence, and an great deal of expert opinion. traditional review of literature would supplement this work with additional information in favor of the arguments as well as contrary to the arguments, which would likely be as illogical as the options the author counters in the work.

Again there is no traditional methodology section in this work as it is largely an expert opinion of the current state of the use of the internet by terrorists. The hypothesis as stated is assumed to be used by the reader and possibly future researchers as a basis for future research, rather than an isolated research hypothesis. The author gives logical reasoning to his opinion but does not prove or disprove his hypothesis with current research. This work could be judged as macro-analytical as it focuses on an issue that is global, as internet technology and those seeking to utilize it for unsavory purposes is a universal concern, and terrorism is a global problem in part being financed and supported through the utilization of the internet as a tool rather than a weapon of the fight.

Results of this article again are not in the traditional research format, as it is an educated opinion statement. The flow of the article however is logical and could serve as a logical piece to begin a research project that was more traditional, on the subject. Alternative interpretations of the work are many though the logical alternative would be to argue the counter point, that forcing greater restrictions of access is the way to stop the spread of information associated with ideology and internet fraud associated with terrorism, though the author makes a logical argument that counters this plan in his opinion.

At stake in the long run is the global agora: the universal library- movie theater-television-concert hall-museum on the Internet. The legal and social precedents set by Metallica v. Napster -- and half a dozen other e-music lawsuits-are likely to ramify into film and video as these, too, move online. hen true electronic books, e-magazines, and e-newspapers become readily available, their rules of operation may well be shaped by the creation of the heavenly jukebox. Music, according to a National Research Council report released last November, is the "canary in the digital coal mine." (Mann, 2000, p. 39)

The initial response of the entertainment industry has been negative, in that the music and video industry responded to fears that demonstrated a lack of willingness to alter marketing and outlet options to electronic forms, as technology had not quite met the expansion, but now things are changing and technology has created a…… [Read More]

These methods of soliciting data about the consumer often make the consumer feel like a source of free marketing by a major corporate site, even when they are paying for a product. Such time-delaying hurdles to making a purchase can sour a consumer about using the web.

The existence of unusual online auctions such as eBay also means that it is more difficult for the major companies to provide novel products, promotions, prices, and offers for consumers through the Internet, as so many independent persons are doing so through their own websites. Thus, increased competition also makes the average Internet consumer more jaded.

This does not mean that it is impossible to reach the modern Internet consumer, from a marketing perspective, merely that one must be innovative, and not simply resort to old formulas of five years ago. Also, consumers appreciate being treated with the same respect and courtesy that…… [Read More]

With Internet Explorer, one may manually have to change their settings in order to stop pop-ups (McDonough, 2009).

There's more to the security position with Firefox than just the pop-up blocker feature. Since Internet Explorer comes with most computers, it's utilized by more than fifty percent of PC users. Firefox is utilized by about twenty to thirty percent of this population. Hackers often want to target the biggest audience with the least exertion. Essentially, these people will be more willing to look for the holes in Internet Explorer before moving onto a smaller utilized browser like Firefox, making Firefox a bit more secure than Internet Explorer. The latest numbers indicate that Firefox's market share continuing to increase (McDonough, 2009).

Through these applications, corrections officers can also help reduce internal violence by providing better command and control. These interfaces include criminal intelligence information, such as photographs, fingerprints and documents. These information can be transferred or shared with institutions. These functions, in combination with location identification devices facilitate the tracking down of the movements of high-risk inmates or at-risk personnel in any facility or area. For parole and probation functions, these internet applications perform client mapping and allow better and more efficient workload distribution according to user-determined criteria. Automated routing enables an officer to conduct residence checks and related activities and saves hours of preparation time every week. This, in turn, reduces lead time for route planning and monitors cost per visit (Geographical Institute Systems).

But what better introduction is there to writing than to be judged solely upon one's critical writing? Although one does not interact personally with other student writers in the online class format, one does not have the ability to interact with the writers of the texts one reads, either. One judge a classical essayist based on his or her quality of prose, and in an Internet forum one can judge a fellow student opinion based on the same standard, the quality and fluidness of the prose and the soundness of the student's opinion. Also, without the pressures of personal interaction, one is likely to be more honest about one's opinions and to take more risks about expressing one's own, potentially risky thoughts about a controversial subject.

True, Internet classes don't offer the one-on-one human interaction that can make a class exiting for someone with a personality who enjoys social interaction.…… [Read More]

Besides that, the Costco site is very much like the Omegaxl site in that any additional information is provided through clicking a link; this is unlike Amazon where all the information is presented on the same page. Costco provides no immediate facility at the primary page for checkout or purchase. Hence, to do so requires that you select the item and them you are given checkout or purchasing options.

The shopping experience on the Costco site is the dullest of the three some may say it is the simplest. While the user experience is not bad it is arduous, as you have to make one click too many to access the information you really want. The absence of testimonials or product reviews on the main page is a letdown and the site could do more to provide product reviews, which assist in decision making.

Another aspect of this is that for the more complex the product or service being sold, especially in a business-to-business (B2B) environment, the greater the need for a solution selling strategy. Underscoring these differences is the need however to either have post-sales automated serve that anticipates and quickly responds to customers' needs, or having a personal contact to assist with any specific problems or concerns. The bottom line is that the Internet will never completely replace salespeople because in the end, buying is more about trust than it is about a transaction. Customers will buy online when they trust both the website and the brand of product being sold; they will not however merely buy on price alone. elationships, trust, credibility and transparency are critical at the high end of any market for a product or service, and that cannot be duplicated online, hence the need for a salesperson to…… [Read More]

Only through a very expensive program subscription to at&T or Verizon can an iPad be configured to always be connected to the Internet (Vittore, 36).

The proposed new product will include a stylus-based interface in addition to one that can be typed on. The stylus-based interface electronics can be purchased at the same cost or even lower than touchscreens from certain manufacturers (olfe, 17). Giving customers the option of having a touchscreen vs. style-driven interface is critically important for those users who may not know how to type that well or find that writing cursively is more efficient for their needs. This option alone differentiates the proposed new products from every tablet PC available today.

The second differentiating aspect of the proposed tablet PC is its ability to be configured for always-on Internet access through the use of an EV-DO chipset embedded on its motherboard. The EV-DO chipset can be…… [Read More]

The problem is that there is no protection against this issue. This is due to the newsfeed in the profile of each user. The argument of the company is that the news feed will ensure the users get to see more content from others. however, this means that there is no certainty of the next item that the user will see on the news feed. This is a serious privacy issue to the user because they cannot view their news feed at free will because of fear on the content of the feed (Milenkovski, 2011, p1). This limits the convenience of this site to the users because of the indecency that arises out of the website.

In this instance, the company should introduce appropriate measures to curb against this issue on indecency. There should be software that detects some indecent language. This will then inhibit the viewing of such information…… [Read More]

Internet has grown exponentially since its first introduction to the public. The precursor to the Internet was the ARPANET. The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the Department of Defense (Carlitz and Zinga, 1997) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) were the primary creators of the ARPANET. Subsequently however, efforts from private entities and universities have helped develop the network infrastructure, as it exists today. "The goals of ARPA's 'Resource Sharing Computer Network' project were to develop the technology for and demonstrate the feasibility of a computer network while improving communication and collaboration between research centers with grants from ARPA's Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO)." (Press, 1996) J.C.R. Licklider of MIT undertook groundbreaking work in developing computer interactivity.
