Mobile Device Security

Analysis of Routing Optimization Security for Mobile IPv6 Networks

Defining and Implementing Mobility Security Architectures

Approaches to defining, implementing and auditing security for mobility devices have become diverse in approach, spanning from protocol definition and development including IPv6 through the creation of secure mobile grid systems. The wide variation in approaches to defining security for mobility devices has also shown the critical need for algorithms and constraint-based technologies that can use constraint-based logic to isolate and thwart threats to the device and the network it is part of. The intent of this analysis is to evaluate the recent developments in constraint-based modeling and network logic as represented by mobile IPv6 protocols and the role trust management networks (Lin, Varadharajan, 2010). These networks are predicated on algorithms that are used authenticating the identity of specific account holders, in addition to defining a taxonomy of the factors that most…… [Read More]

Issues in Application of Mobile Marketing

Mark Twain once quipped that, "Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising. The truth of this maxim is as true in today's marketing reality as ever. Marketing can be understood primarily as a business philosophy that puts the customer first. From this perspective, the primary goal of hospitality businesses should be to create and retain satisfied customers. This concept proposes that satisfying customers' needs and wants should be at the center of an organization's decision-making process. Professional marketers believe that this customer focus is the responsibility of everybody in the organization. Adopting this philosophy requires a total management commitment to the customer, and companies that pursue…… [Read More]

Words: 844 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Case Study Paper #: 63442774

Mobile Marketing Case Study

Mobile-based marketing needs to be part of an integrated marketing communications (IMC) strategy, supported by ancillary systems, tactics and programs to attract, sell and serve targeted customers if it is to succeed. Of the many technology platforms that are catalysts of IMC growth, mobile-based marketing continues to accelerate well beyond all others, estimated being valued as a $23 industry by itself (Valentino-DeVries, Steel, 2010). Despite this rapid projected growth, mobile-based marketing has continued to face formidable obstacles to its growth. For the last decade there have been lawsuits regarding the use of cookies and other advanced tracking technologies including "Flash Cookies" that are used for recreating browsing sessions by consumers, even after they are deleted (Valentino-DeVries, Steel, 2010). There are the legal impediments to growth and the technological, including the ability to integrate disparate, often legacy systems together to create scalable, secure mobile marketing systems (Pelau,…… [Read More]

It is the most ambitious option yet also the greatest in terms of retaining and gaining customers over time. It would literally include integrating supply chain, pricing, manufacturing, logistics, field service and customer service all together into an enterprise platform. In effect a Service oriented Architecture (SOA) with integration to Cloud Computing services and platforms (Birch, 37) would need to be completed. This would also rely on real-time data from manufacturing and distribution through FID systems integration which would in effect many the entire company customer-centric and demand-driven (Wang, Chen, Xie, 2512, 2513).

ecommendation

Clearly the option of doing nothing is not acceptable as Web 2.0 technologies, the catalyst behind social networks, combined with Web Services and streamlined XML messaging, are revolutionizing the use of mobile computing platforms. To do nothing is invite customer churn given how quickly customer preferences are changing for using mobile computing channels to communicate with,…… [Read More]

Mobile phones can also be used to create 'experiential' classes: "Images can be captured and uploaded to the Web through mobile weblogs (moblogs)…a team from Umea University in Sweden moblogged Jokkmokk's 399th Annual Sami Winter Market. Students applied their academic learning about the Sami to the real world, interviewing participants, conducting follow-up digital research on the fly, and uploading and expanding on commentary online" (Alexander 2004). The classroom spilled out conference, and all students in the class participated simultaneously, in a way they could not, had they traveled through the conference as a group or reported back to the classroom as individuals.

m-Learning thus has several demonstrable benefits. The first is its ease of access, where updated information and alerts can be sent immediately. It also offers options to pace a student's study so it is compatible with the student's other lifestyle demands. A student can learn while on the…… [Read More]

Mobile Wireless Portal

Evaluation of the eWeek Mobile Wireless Portal

The eWeek Mobile Portal combines an impressive amount of news and analysis on mobile devices, mobile operating systems including iPhone, Android and many others, and the integration of these technologies into enterprise strategies. Coverage of how mobile technologies are used in Customer elationship Management (CM), Sales Force Automation (SFA), and throughout direct marketing is included in the portal's contents. The benefits of the portal are the timeliness of its news and analysis, the depth of reviews of new mobile devices specifically designed for the enterprise, and the links to more advanced technical information as well. The disadvantages of the portal include its heavy reliance on advertising, which tends to clutter up the page and makes it difficult to navigate. Another disadvantage of the portal is the lack of direct access to the more interesting tests of wireless network performance. That…… [Read More]

Mobile Information Technology: Insights from Collaborators

I have selected a mobile app that I hope will help in the improvement of patient outcomes in healthcare settings via the further enhancement of care coordination. Thus, I interviewed my Chief Medical Officer (CMO) - Derrick Butler MD; Clinical Medical Director (CMD) - Dr Mann MD; and Assist Medical Director - Nnennaya Omerigbo MD.
The interviewees in this case play diverse roles in my organization. For this reason, there were some unique set of questions tailored for each interviewee, in addition to the common set of questions that sought to provide a general overview of the issues under consideration. The questions I asked are summarized in Appendix 1.

Results

It is important, from the onset, to note that all interviewees underlined the need for collaboration with various stakeholders in the development of the selected mobile app. Stakeholders in this case include, but they…… [Read More]

Mobile Diet Tracking Apps Support Youth With Health Problems

Telehealth Strategies to Support Adolescents with Diabetes and CKD

Children and youth who must undergo dialysis because of chronic kidney disease (CKD) are typically provided age appropriate educational materials for self-care. Key objectives of efforts to strengthen self-care education are the maintenance of optimally beneficial diet and, although direct evidence has not yet been shown for children, maintenance of blood pressure that is below the 90th percentile for height, age, and gender ("NIH," 2014). Longitudinal studies may point to strategies that result in earlier detection, and perhaps even enable diabetic kidney disease to be prevented (Lane, 2005). In the interim period, research that identifies enhanced methods for assisting and encouraging children and youth to adhere to their dietary regimens are an important support to utilize ("NIH," 2014).

Guidelines for optimizing the benefits of a customized diet for children and youth with chronic kidney disease have been provided by the National…… [Read More]

Case Study Into Loyalty in the Mobile Network Market

Words: 3088 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Case Study Paper #: 69305686

Mobile Loyalty ackground

The mobile telephone system is part of a global communication sector that has a number of distinct but interlinked elements. Whether one talks on a telephone, searches the net, emails, sends texts or downloads and participates in web-generated data sharing, one is using the mobile telephone network more and more, to the point where it and some of the competing companies appear to be reaching their service capacities. Or at least this seems to be the case when it comes to doing what these large providers should be best at: adding and keeping customers. Maintaining a loyal buyer base -- one that truly likes and advocates for the provider -- or at least happily retaining one beyond a small contract period is critical for any company that wants to be able to serve the global marketplace (Sharpley, 2009).

Underlying many of the customer service practices and promises…… [Read More]

esearch shows that Social media is playing a huge part when it comes to the health care industry. One study done by DC and Interactive Group shows that beyond 90% of individuals from the ages 18-24 mentioned they would rely on health data discovered on social media channels. The study showed that one in two adults utilize their smart phone to find health information. Even patients are going to the internet to converse about the care they are getting: 50% of individuals mentioned they would share negative or positive situations of a medical facility or hospital, and 52% made the point they would not waver to post comments about a nurse, doctor, or healthcare supplier on social media (iberio, 2013).

Analysis of the data was done by within-case and cross-case analysis with regard to the mobile marketing applications. Within-case analysis allows researcher to analyze the interview data from hotels against the previous research or literature, boiling down a large amount of data into readily digestible and easily understood segments. Afterwards cross-case analysis is implemented to compare all cases to each other in order to find common patterns or themes, which also makes it easier to conclude the research. In general, case study methodology requires multiple sources of data. In the case of this study, the observation of mobile application, Internet website and mobile website of interviewed hotels was central to the research. Some hotels also provided the author with some artifacts that are also considered as sources of data (such as a flier and chocolate bar which had Q code on them).

Mobile Microfinance Mobile Banking in

Words: 839 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 86947651

Among the more obvious reasons is the simple elimination of overhead and initial construction costs for new bank branches. Though such costs are shared by all banking customers, it requires a sizeable initial investment on the part of the bank, and customers might not be plentiful enough to make the sharing of these costs feasible for either potential customers or the banks. With mobile banking, not only are the overhead costs of a physical branch eliminated, but many transactions can actually be conducted without any contact between the customer and bank personnel. This further eliminates costs associated with branch banking while allowing more affordable access to more complex services.

This reduction of overhead costs is observable in other forms of branchless banking, as well, as can clearly be seen in the massive reduction in costs when point-of-sale third party agents were introduced to the microfinance arena (CGAP a 2009). Additional…… [Read More]

Home Goods M-Commerce

During the earlier parts of the internet and technological revolution that began in the 1990's with the emergence of the World Wide Web was what eventually came to be known as E-Commerce. Indeed, there was the shift whereby what was done in brick and mortar stores was increasingly done online. Thus, regular commerce became electronic commerce, or e-commerce for short. Nowadays, there has been yet another shift to a subset of electronic commerce, that being on mobile devices like cellular phones, tablets and personal data assistants, or PDA's. Mobile commerce has become prominent enough that it should get its own mention. The covering of mobile commerce within the modern paradigm can be associated with a number of product categories and industries. The specific industry that will be focused on in this report is goods for the homes such as those for cooking, other food preparation and gardening.…… [Read More]

It initially failed to attract the desired audience, but it is believed that the recent innovations of the re-launched tablet PC would ensure its success (Search Mobile Computing, 2010).

While Apple stated that they were the first creators of tablet computers, Microsoft comes to argue the same. Thorn Holwerda (2010) however states that neither of the two it monoliths were the creator of tablet PC. "Well, no. They're both wrong. oth Microsoft and Apple were late to the game when it comes to tablet computing, and so far, neither of the two companies have been able to popularize the paradigm in any meaningful way - but boy, did they try" (Holwerda, 2010).

Mobile-based Customer elationship Management (CM) Applications

Of the many software applications that sales professionals rely on daily, their Customer elationship Management (CM) systems are the most essential for informing existing customers of new products and sales, and tracking new ones. Of the many selling and service strategies that CM systems enable, the most valuable is in gaining a 360-degree view of customers and ensuring every department in an organization stays focused on their needs and wants (Beasty, 2007). CM systems provide sales teams with the ability to coordinate their selling efforts across the company, getting needed support and collaboration with the diverse departments and divisions that they rely on to sell products and services. An example of how a typical CM is organized is shown in Figure 1, Microsoft CM System Design. The design of CM systems is predicated on creating a system of record…… [Read More]

The customer owes money to a friend or wishes to transfer money to someone. In this situation there are three options available. If the two parties are in the proximity of each other the payee's device sends the transaction data over to the payer's handset using either IrDA, T, or RFID communication. If the two parties are not in the position of using a direct link, the payee can send the necessary information over the air (SMS, IM) to the other party. In certain cases the payer initiates a transfer while the payee may not even be aware of the fact that he or she is going to receive money. In this case the payer can manually input all necessary information into the handset. Depending on the transaction value the payer in all three cases has the option to select either its bank or MNO for processing the payment. The…… [Read More]

Nature of How We Use Our Mobile

Words: 580 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 89126336

nature of how we use our mobile devices is changing dramatically with continuing innovations in technology (Hjorth, 2012). Smartphone usage is has been exploding all over the globe, with Europe reaching 31.5% of mobile users having a smartphone (Stone, 2012). Even in countries which have typically lagged behind in wide access to technology, like Bangladesh, have seen huge increases in smartphone users popularizing m-commerce (Islam et al., 2011). Malaysia is another major region that is growing tremendously in terms of m-commerce usage because of the increasing access to internet and smartphones (Chan, 2013). Smartphone users often use much more data and have an entire digital world at their fingertips which is empowering them in ways never possible within the realm of e-commerce with the huge increase in internet access (Sumita & Yoshii, 2010). With the rising trend truly solidifying itself, it is clear that there will be a greater movement…… [Read More]

Difference between mobile and cloud computing

Words: 619 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75332962

Cloud Computing Governance

There are many issues and implications that must be taken seriously when it comes to cloud computing. While the possibilities and capabilities that are newly or more significantly realized by cloud computing are fascinating and voluminous, so too are the security risks and ethical quandaries that can and do come up when it comes to the subject. With that in mind, this report shall cover two main topics that are related to cloud computing. The first is how cloud computing is and should be influenced by corporate governance and the broad impact of cloud computing on mobile computing will be assessed as well. While there are immeasurable benefits and perks to moving to a cloud-based solution, there are security, logistical and ethical concerns that must be address.

Analysis

When it comes to corporate governance, the main thing to keep in mind is that the laws and regulations…… [Read More]

Marvin (2015) interviews Dr. Chandra Bhansali about cloud-based accounting systems, discussing a couple of issues. The first is the way that cloud-based solutions are changing the way SMBs do business, and the second is the role that security plays in this. Most small businesses become interested in cloud-based solutions because of the efficiency gains, and in particular solving the pain point related to payroll, but they are concerned about security Bhansali is clear that security is an essential component for a cloud-based system, because the market demands it. Accounting data is sensitive, and companies that utilize cloud-based solutions insist that this information be protected to the highest standard.

Bhansali notes that his company moved to Amazon Web Services, which has one of the more secure platforms. Sensitive data is encrypted, in particular things like bank information, social security numbers and employee identification numbers. Bhansali then points out, without getting into…… [Read More]

Much work remains to enable a seamless

Integration, for example that can extend IP to support mobile network devices. (Chlamtac, Conti, and Liu, 2003)

4G is stated to begin with the assumption "that future networks will be entirely packet-switched, using protocols evolved from those in use in today's Internet." (Chlamtac, Conti, and Liu, 2003) It is reported that a 4G wireless network that is all IP-based "has intrinsic advantages over its predecessors." (Chlamtac, Conti, and Liu, 2003)

IP is stated to be both compatible with and independent of "the actual radio access technology" meaning that 'the core 4G network can be designed and evolves independently from access networks. Using IP-based core network also means the immediate tapping of the rich protocol suites and services already available, for example, voice and data convergence, can be supported by using readily available VoIP set of protocols such as MEGACOP, MGCP, SIP, H.323, SCTP.…… [Read More]

Mobile Commerce on Home Control System

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]

Hand Held Devices and PDA's in American Health Care

Words: 1901 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Research Paper Paper #: 69554357

Healthcare

Hand-held devices and portable digital assistants (PDAs) are being integrated into the health care setting in the United States. It is important to understand which devices are being used, how they are being used, what they are being used for, and why. Understanding the role that hand-held devices and other portable electronics play in health care can help to inform organizational policy, and help health care administrators better implement electronic medical records.

History of use

The first documented PDA was the Newton MessagePad, issued by Apple in 1993. It was described as being "revolutionary" (Wiggins, 2004, p. 5). Palm, Inc. developed the next big handheld device: the Palm Pilot, in 1996. By the late 1990s, PDAs were equipped for Internet access, and memory capacity and other features improved with each product release. Microsoft also entered the portable electronic devices marketplace in the 1990s. The devices were not yet being…… [Read More]

2. Using Google Docs is going to be a real time saver and one of the most convenient applications I have applied to my studies. I can see how creating a spreadsheet for assignments that is shared with others in the class could facilitate collaboration. Google Docs is great for sharing documents, but it can also be used for brainstorming and for piggy-backing on each other's ideas -- in real time. It is easy to envision times when I am away from my computer and I can just hop onto someone else's computer and pick up where I left off with Google Docs. Not having to manage a memory stick is a bonus, too. The capacity to retrieve and upload documents that are stored on my computer or on a memory stick is really helpful, and I can see where that capability will foster the movement of my documents from files on my computer or memory stick to the Google Doc environment.

Mobile technology, disease management is the wave of the future, not only for diabetes care but for other health related issues and needs. If an individual can recognize the daily stressors they place upon their bodies, with regard to their disease management and overall health the system could likely greatly impact care systems and services, as well as assist individuals with knowledge and information that may not have been available to them in the past.

Response is expected to be multi-faceted and brutal.

Technological change represents another key threat. As new technologies emerge and the end needs of users shift, the existing industry paradigm can shift quickly and decisively. For example, if the personal computer were to become outmoded in the next ten years, AMD's capture of the market leading manufacturers would be worthless. This is entirely possible, given the pace of change. AMD must always be on top of change in the industry, or risk being left behind.

Lastly, there is the risk of talent defection. AMD relies on top talent to develop its technology, to market the products, and to fight the legal battles. If their supply of talent were to be compromised, either by Intel or by startups, AMD would find it increasingly difficult to compete. They must ensure that their human resources systems are sufficient to attract and retain the top…… [Read More]

How many people do you think actually want to go to the gym, but feel too lazy due to their hectic schedules? Studies have shown that the assistance of an effective personal trainer can contribute a great deal to overcoming a sense of apathy toward exercise and this strategy has worked for millions of people (McClaran, 2003). However, the personal trainer still does not provide enough motivation for many people to make time in their busy lives to actually make it to the gym. However, how many people do you think would be able to focus more on their personal health if the gym and the trainer could come to them instead?

LAN Technologies -- Question One

The author of this exam is asked to answer to the purpose and value of LAN technologies. Of course, LAN is short for local area networks. They do indeed serve a good purpose and this will be explained in the following section. While LAN's are not all there is to networking, it is surely a big piece of the puzzle (Webopedia, 2015).

As noted before, a LAN is short for Local Area Network and it is basically the most localized and smallest form of network. Technically, two computers and a printer on a hub is a network. Local Area Networks are usually at least somewhat bigger than that but they are almost always fairly localized in nature. They will almost always be enclosed in a single room, area of a floor, floor of a building or a wider building. Even very small networks can be…… [Read More]

Effect of Smartphone Apps on Business Models

Innovations in Smartphone Apps

Wireless technology is one of the fastest-changing phenomena in the world today. No single day passes without the telecommunication industry experiencing some new development that revolutionizes the way information is accessed and used. This technological evolution brings about improved security, increased coverage and greater throughput, and in so doing, impacts on information accessibility. Although this evolution has had an impact on almost all spheres of human life, the world of business stands out. The scale on which businesses can access corporate data today has never been experienced before. With mobile technology for instance, the retrieval of sale-closing or account-servicing information no longer depends on the proximity to the premises' LAN. Companies are, therefore, in a position to conduct business from anywhere, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

This is perhaps even more likely as the home system becomes larger and more realistic, as is seen in High Definition television, with larger screens to emulate the experience of watching a film in a theater. There will probably be competition between the two, with smaller films and films with certain types of content being more commonly accessed by hand-held devices, while the large-scale spectacle film will be more readily viewed on the larger screen system. As noted, delivery by computer is more a method than a defining feature, and delivery by this means will one day tie directly to the television set, allowing for greater flexibility as the consumer can order what he or she wants online and watch it immediately. This can be done today with most cable systems, but the system of the future will not be tied to a given system for such services.

Mobility

The world of information technology is constantly being challenged to move into other segments of business functions. No longer can an IT manager simply control the company's internal data and information flow. One generalization that was identified is that information technology is becoming increasing intertwined with both marketing and advertising. Many consumers, especially the younger generations, consider information they acquire online by various means to serve as the foundation for purchasing decisions. Not only do such consumers scan the web to compare pricing information, but they also engage in product research through various means.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to reach these consumers with a marketing message. Many consumers effectively shun any traditional type of marketing messages.

M-Commerce Evaluations

Words: 385 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 89396334

M-commerce has provided a new means for businesses to reach their customers in a fast and dynamic method. This benefit is fairly obvious. Other benefits of m-commerce is the ability to modify and transform products with relative ease. M-commerce is also beneficial because it provides a new landscape of business for developing entreprenures to develop new ideas and trends. M-commerce also has some downs sides as well. The automation of commerce creates employment situations that are detrimental to many. M-commerce kills traditional jobs in retail and other sales industries. Another drawback of m-commerce is that many in the world do not have mobile devices, and thereby ignores many customers. Another significant drawback of m-commerce is the crowded nature of the market as the number of apps increases, it becomes that much more difficult for those wishing to enter the market to do so.

This will allow sufficient time to integrate the different it support functions together. At the same time, the staff members can be highly trained in using this protocol. Next, administrators need to monitor these changes and the impact they are having on addressing these issues. This will allow for any kind of adjustments to be made in the strategy. Once the process has been streamlined is when this protocol could be introduced to the entire facility. (Michael, 2006) (Noimanee, 2007, pp. 80 -- 92)

The biggest risks associated with using this kind of technology is that the security and storage of personal information could be compromised. If this were to happen, it could give hackers unprecedented access to the location of staff members and employees inside the hospital. At the same time, they could use this as a way to look up personal information about patients or employees. (Michael, 2006)…… [Read More]

In this case, the insistence is on the enhancement of credibility for change through demonstrating gains made. In the case of News Corp, those who excel in change related initiatives could be rewarded and recognized going forward.

Building on Change/Consolidation of Gains

Here, quick wins should be taken as a beginning and not as an end. Hence in a way, victory must not be declared before the whole change process is over. When it comes to News Corp, efforts could be undertaken to ensure that each success or failure is taken as an opportunity to learn.

Institutionalization of New Approaches

Lastly, change should and must be made to stick. Hence effectively, change should be made part and parcel of the organization by anchoring the same on the corporate culture. In regard to News Corp, to embed change on the culture of the organization, efforts may be undertaken…… [Read More]

changes affecting healthcare in the next five to 10 years. There are two specific areas, though, that will be the focus of these changes. These are the number of older adults who need care and the advances in technology. The idea that technology is important does not come as a surprise, because it is continuously evolving and reaching new levels throughout the world. As technology gets better, the way healthcare is delivered will also see improvement. Technology changes and new options emerge, and then in the blink of an eye there is another new technology option behind it. Healthcare is tied to technology now, and will need to find ways to keep the population better served as the needs of that population continue to change.

Technologies in Business and Marketing

Today, email is still used very heavily in business and personal communications and related applications. However, the additional convenience and immediacy of new technology (especially cell phones) combined with the networking potential of the newest social media Internet networks and applications have already begun to revolutionize business marketing communications (again), as exemplified by the Obama election team's effective use of Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter throughout the 2008 presidential campaign (Hempel, 2009: 93).

Social Networking as the New Marketing Media

Social networking is a significantly more effective communications media for the future of business marketing than email, although it is expected that email will continue to provide extensive business communications support and personal communications for years to come. Whereas email communications require users be at their computer terminals or relay messages to mobile devices, media such as Twitter offer an immediate text-based connection virtually anywhere. eal-time texting allows the advantage of…… [Read More]

Smartphone Marketing Plan

Marketing Proposal: Smartphone

Palm Computing, Inc., released the Palm Pilot 1000 and 5000 in March 1996, in a technological climate that had weathered much disillusionment with handheld computing, owing largely to the unfortunate blunders in marketing the overhyped Newton Message Pad. The Palm Pilot, soon to have the word "Pilot" dropped from its name due to legal infringement on the Pilot Pen company's trademark, had a different approach to handwriting recognition than the Message Pad. It required that the user learn a glyphic alphabet that would allow the handwriting recognition software to use constraints as an aid to letter recognition. Thus, less processing power and software code would need to be dedicated to this task. This power came standard with the Palm's onboard operating system, the Palm operating system (OS).

a) Do you agree that all aspects of business processes are impacted on by technological change? Discuss.

All aspects of business processes are definitely impacted by any technological change. This is because technology has revolutionized the way companies are conducting business. The playing field for most companies has been leveled by technology regardless of company size (Marston, Li, Bandyopadhyay, Zhang, & Ghalsasi, 2011). Automation of back office functions like accounting, record keeping, and payroll has allowed businesses to reduce business costs.

The intent of this analysis is to define two reasons why developing software for wireless devices is challenging and also to define the five components of mobile operating systems. Unifying both of these subject areas is the rapid adoption of mobile devices, ranging from smartphones to tablet PCs including the best-selling Apple iPad (Kolios, Friderikos, Papadaki, 2012). With more developers than ever before looking to create new applications on wireless devices, the analysis of the two reasons slowing down their pace of progress is worth considering from a long-term market development standpoint as well.

Factors Making Software Development For Wireless Devices Challenging

Of the many factors that slow down new application development for wireless devices, the two most prevalent are the broad number of competing standards for application development, and the very precise nature of device requirements for each class or category of wireless device. Beginning with…… [Read More]

The signal-jumping algorithm necessary for the being able to deliver the signals to specific mobile devices as they move through an entire network is also critical.

In summary, location-based wireless services would provide the necessary means to stay continually informed as a mobile device travels through a network of servers (Junglas, Watson, 2008). The more critical question however is how the data is tracked of a person's movements, and if their privacy is being too compromised for the sake of convenience. Location-based services will eventually become more pervasive, underwritten initially by advertising models and later by services content models, yet the security and privacy issues must be dealt with for this mobile technology and its application to deliver on the promise of more accentuated location-based intelligence.

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]
