Walking into a crowded public place, a person would find almost everyone's eyes glued to an illuminated phone in their hand. A conversation where someone does not pull out his or her phone is rare today. Groups of people are together, yet one finds them all more interested in their phone than holding a meaningful conversation. As today's society has been formed, technology is at the root of the world; it is a universal focal point throughout the daily lives of everyone. This technological presence can provide many benefits, yet these advancements result in a decline in social and communication skills.
The scope of this report places heavy emphasis on the benefits of wireless technology and how human society has adapted and progressed alongside it. It does not include the technology such as multiplexing and encryption employed in wireless technologies. Methods employed in the report include heavy emphasis on current published papers and books and internet resources. Limitations in the study include no suitable unit of measure for the impact of wireless technology on human society. Background A review of Fundamentals of Wireless Communication by David Tse and Pramod Viswanath shows that wireless communication technologies are one of the most varied area in the communication field and it has not slowed down since its study in the 1960s.
For instance, people can connect with their families and friends using cell phones and internet services. People would send messages through email and Short Message Services, which would be read and replied in a brief time. Consequently, there has been a tremendous change in people’s perspective on technologies from previous and current years. There will be new inventions of technologies every year that helps in making people’s lives better in communication and
This will allow the 'action at a distance' and remote control from cities, allowing them to extend their domination over more and more distant places. (Graham, 1997) The myth of universal access This myth is that social access to new telecommunications technologies and services will somehow diffuse to be truly universal and equal. (Graham, 1997) Universal access to telecommunication is available today but the problem that arises is while universal access can be had, it is still limited to those people who are able to afford it. Computers modems needs electricity to power them and telephone companies charge for the “privilege” to use the internet. (Graham, 1997) This makes a divide both physically and online between the higher class who can afford telecommunication and those who cant.
These devices can be very beneficial and make things easier. However, they are mostly destructive in the world’s environment. Communication, one of the very most important skills is ruined by smartphones. People have lost the capability to socialize. Smartphones have taken over this aspect and have replaced it with associations only in the digital world.
This wasn't an easy development and they had to go through a severe crisis in logistics and sourcing before to establish their competitive advantage. Their dominance in the mobile phone market was also supported by their network infrastructure. However, Nokia wasn't only a hardware manufacturer and they put a lot of their efforts in software as well and keeping control over the software was seen as crucial. In fact, the company didn't just want to have quality hardware and software which could work together, they wanted to expand the possibilities of mobile telecommunication with a great emphasis on convergence, especially for their high-end devices. Innovation was seen as a priority and was necessary as well in the high tech business they were in.
According to the research concluded by Oxley and Sampson (2004), the opportunistic behaviour mostly affected by the market overlap, the technological overlap, the market position of both companies and the existence of prior cooperation between them. The market overlap is relatively low, because Microsoft’s main segment is PC and laptop operating systems, while Nokia develops and create large-scale telecommunications infrastructures, thus their end product market is significantly different. Nevertheless, their technology is not far away from each other, because they have entered the market of smartphones, although without great success. Thus their general knowledge about the industry and the technology is still significant and similar. Regarding to the aim of the JV, both corporations are considered as a laggard, because despite of their past experiences, none of them has a meaningful market share in the Smartphone business.
For example, chatting through technology has its flaws, when compared to talking in real life. Nowadays, when people text, people can not express emotions, tone, or voice, like people could with talking face to face (Toadvine). This is important because emotions are a huge part of talking with another person, and technology does not allow the use of emotions, tone, or voice. Additionally, the introduction of phones to society has changed the way people talk to each other, and this may be a bad thing. Melissa Nilles, an Arts & Entertainment editor has stated, “Instead of spending time in person with friends, we just call, text or instant message them.
Elizabeth B. Goldsmith (2005) stated that radio, television, magazines, newspapers, and signs are indirect channels of mass communication. Messages and information are almost impossible to be spread to large number of people without the use of technology back then and even in present days. Technology is vital in order to encode and decode the information and here technology plays the role as
It 's very simple, just need to use the phone, social media sites, Skype, Yahoo Messenger, Email and so on.Dissemination of information can be delivered rapidly to the whole world. In the past, newspaper, telephone and television are some of the most important mass media in disseminating information. Now with the progress in communication technology has diversified channels to deliver information and it 's also faster. Ease of communicative skills has helped us to connect with people around the globe while facilitating families to connect with each other. Not only that, the role of information and communication technologies allow us to generate income.
