In today’s technological age, there are two companies that stand out on top in my mind. California-based Apple, Inc., led by CEO Tim Cook, has the highest market capitalization of any technology company in the world. Profiting off its high successful iPod and iPhone products, as well as its growing MacBook and iMac personal computing products, Apple’s is known for its high quality electronics. Like Apple, Samsung Electronics is also profiting off its smartphone product line. Based in Seoul, South Korea, Samsung Electronics is led by CEO Geesung Choi and the company is ranked 5th globally in market capitalization. With the release of its Galaxy SIII in 2012, Samsung is proving to be a very strong competitor to Apple, although it still has a long way to go to catch up. Neither Apple, nor Samsung Electronics is unionized. Both companies also distribute their products the same way; both directly and through retailers.
When looking at the strengths for Apple, it’s easy to see why they are one of the most profitable companies in the United States. In March of 2012, Apple’s stock reached the $600 mark, which gave them a $560 market capitalization (Kessler, 2012). This is more than double than Wal-Mart’s $210 billion market cap (Kessler, 2012). For a company that was on the verge of bankruptcy in the 1990’s, I find these numbers to quite astonishing. Having such a high value allows Apple control the music and book markets, as record labels and book publishers work with Apple to set prices. I believe this is a great strength for Apple that will help keep Apple on top for many years to come. In order to get to this this large market cap, I believe that Apple’s greatest strength, Brand Loyalty, is what makes Apple such a great organization. When Apple’s iPhone 4S came out in 2011, it had a slew of issues related to battery life. Despite not responding to the…...

...latest trend in connecting to the internet in the Philippines? One of the various ways to connect to the internet is through fiber optic technology. It delivers laser-generated pulses of light on strands of glass fibers. Recently, Globe Telecom Inc. is laying down 10,000 kilometers of fiber-optic cable this year in implementation of LTE or Long Term Evolution technology. This would bring high-speed data to mobile phones and other devices. A Globe product called Tattoo Torque is powered by GPON or Gigabit Passive Optical Network which uses fiber optic technology. The maximum speed of Tattoo Torque is 150 Mbps. Smart Communications have also implemented LTE internet. Now, they are still doing tests especially in Metro Manila to have an improved internet connection which is planned to be launched in the middle of 2012. Smart LTE is several times faster than the average wireless and wired connections being offered today in the country. Wireless LTE could bring as much as 42 megabytes per second of connection. The Filipinos would surely experience smooth and faster connection. Downloading, uploading and sharing files will be done in just minutes and even in seconds instead of hours. The famous way to connect to the internet nowadays is through Wi-Fi or Wireless Fidelity. This technology allows the people to connect to the internet anywhere without using those hassle wires. All they have to do is find a router and they could connect to the internet instantly! Hot spots......

...THE INTERNET BACKGROUND The Internet is the world’s largest computer network. It is a network of networks. The networks of various organizations as well as the computers of individuals are linked together via the internet. The Intern was originated by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the Department for Defense (DOD) to allow four universities doing research for the DOD to exchange information. At the time (1969), the network was called ARPANET. One of the results of how it was originated is that there is no central control of the Internet. The DOD wanted to ensure that in the network couldn’t be taken out by an attack on the control center. The internet now has hundreds of millions of users, but there is still no central control. SERVICES There are many services available on the internet. Some of them are: * E-mail * Newsgroups * Chat rooms * Instant messaging * The World Wide Web (often just called the Web) The web is the most widely used service on the internet which is why it is confused with being the Internet. However the web and the internet are not synonymous. The Web is just one of the services available on the Web. NAVIGATING THE INTERNET You can use a URL to find resources on the Internet. A URL is a Uniform Resource Locator. You enter it into the address bar of your Web Browser. It will look something like http://somestuff.com.

...Running head: INTERNET AND EDUCATION IS THE INTERNET A GOOD EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE STEPHANIE HUNT JULY 14, 2013 ENGL 101-D01 Summary In today’s society, students are relying more on the internet for their educational resources. The internet can be a valuable resource in certain situations; however, students should not rely too much on the internet as a resource. Students should use the resources the library has to offer such as books, newspapers, magazines. These resources are more reliable than most internet resources. Resources such as books, newspapers, and magazines are a better choice because they are supported by facts and reliable sources that can be verified. In Judith Levine article “I Surf, Therefore I am” (Salon magazine, 1997) Levine, says, “most of the data my students Net is like trash fish.” I believe she made this statement because she feels most of the information students acquire from the internet is not useful and reliable. Students need to make sure they are getting information from reliable sources. I am guilty of using an internet as a resource to study for a quiz and I did not do well on the quiz because some of the information was not reliable. On another note, the internet has been a valuable educational resource for me and other online students. University’s like Liberty University that offers online education is a great resource for adult......

... The DOD charged the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (now known as DARPA) to fund research that would lead to the creation of a worldwide network. The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an experimental wide area network (WAN) that consisted of the four computers networked by DARPA researchers in 1969. These first four computers were located at the University of California at Los Angeles, SRI International, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the University of Utah. By 1990, a network of networks, now known as the Internet, had grown from the four computers on the ARPANET to over 300,000 computers on many interconnected networks. As ARPANET grew to include more computers, researchers realized the need for each connected computer to conform the same set of rules. The Network Control Protocol (NCP) was developed as the first collection of rules for formatting, ordering, and error-checking data sent across a network. Vincent Cerf, who is often referred to as the Father of the Internet, along with his colleague Robert Kahn, developed the Transmission Control Protocol and the Internet Protocol (referred to by their combined acronym TCP/IP), which are still used today. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) includes rules that computers on a network use to establish and break connections. The Internet Protocol (IP) includes rules for routing individual data packets. The term Internet was first used in 1974 in an article written by...

...Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) initiated a research program to investigate techniques and technologies for interlinking packet networks of various kinds. The objective was to develop communication protocols which would allow networked computers to communicate transparently across multiple, linked packet networks. This was called the Internetting project and the system of networks which emerged from the research was known as the "Internet." The system of protocols which was developed over the course of this research effort became known as the TCP/IP Protocol Suite, after the two initial protocols developed: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP). (I got my information for the history of the internet at www.isoc.org In 1986, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) initiated the development of the NSFNET which, today, provides a major backbone communication service for the Internet. With its 45 megabit per second facilities, the NSFNET carries on the order of 12 billion packets per month between the networks it links. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Department of Energy contributed additional backbone facilities in the form of the NSINET and ESNET respectively. In Europe, major international backbones such as NORDUNET and others provide connectivity to over one hundred thousand computers on a large number of networks.

...Commission 2000). The key indicator for knowledge based society in EU is the Information Society. The objective is to broaden the access to the Internet and to produce content what adds value to European cultural and scientific heritage. Customer behavior involves the thoughts and feelings experience and the actions they perform in consumption processes. It also includes all the things in the environment that influence these thoughts feelings and actions. These include comments from other customers, advertisements, price information, packaging, product appearance and many others. It is important to recognize from this definition that consumer behavior is dynamic, involves interactions, and involves exchanges. Consumer behavior is dynamic because the thinking, feeling and actions of individual consumers, targeted consumer groups and society at large are constantly changing. A vast number of individual differences can influence consumer behavior. Some of the most important include personality, lifestyles and psychographics, and motivation. Personality reflects a person’s consistent response to his or her environment. It has been linked to differences in susceptibility to persuasion and social influence and thereby to purchase behavior. At the same time electronic environment is different and organizations cannot apply the same standards to the internet purchasing.

...The Impact of the Internet Have you ever wondered how the internet has evolved, where it’s headed, and how it’s affected the world we live in? The truth is it has transformed drastically over time. It has reformed the way we communicate, how we receive our education, and not to mention how health careers have improved because of it. Initially, the internet has changed how we as societies communicate, interact, live, work and play. The internet is used virtually by everyone who has access to a computer. It has changed how fast information gets from place to place, like emailing and chatting with one another. Once someone emails or sends an IM to an legit email it is received instantly. Social media is a big part of everyone’s life, from young to old. We have also been introduced to web cams. With web cams and the internet we can actually communicate and see the person we’re talking to. People can use Skype or ooVoo to see someone who is 200,000 miles across the world. The internet is now taking the place of mail, magazines, and newspapers. Overall the internet has become essential to almost everyone’s daily life. Furthermore, the Internet has impacted and will continue to impact education and health related fields. The invention of iPods, smartphones, tablets, iPads, and e-readers, has made it easier and convenient for students. Students can now buy books offline, and look up information very quickly, all at their fingertips. School systems are also putting iPads and......

...computer networks, especially when they are connected to the Internet. Most large organizations have their own local computer network, or intranet, that links their computers together to share resources and support the communications of employees and others with a legitimate need for access. Almost all of these networks are connected to the Internet and allow employees to go "online." Information technology security is controlling access to sensitive electronic information so only those with a legitimate need to access it are allowed to do so. This seemingly simple task has become a very complex process with systems that need to be continually updated and processes that need to constantly be reviewed. There are three main objectives for information technology security: confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data to the organization. Confidentiality is protecting access to sensitive data from those who don't have a legitimate need to use it. Integrity is ensuring that information is accurate and reliable and cannot be modified in unexpected ways. The availability of data ensures that it is readily available to those who need to use it (Feinman et. al., 1999). Information technology security is often the challenge of balancing the demands of users versus the need for data confidentiality and integrity. For example, allowing employees to access a network from a remote location, like their home or a project site, can increase the value of the network and......

...Drive the Project Selection Process by Lisa McQuerrey, Demand Media. This article talks about the fact that project selection is very common and it takes place in every type of business or organization. Project managers have to decide which propositioned projects to take on and develop and which ones to set aside or disregard based on many factors. The article also breaks down potential problems, opportunities and directives that may have a significant influence on the overall project selection process. Project selection begins with the needs or problems within an organization. There are many different forms and examples of need and problem depending on the organization and its status (McQuerrey). A company experiencing decline in revenue is facing a problem and will need to implement a plan to reduce their setbacks. On the other hand, some companies who are doing well and not experiencing problems, may be presented with opportunities. When opportunities are presented like problems, a plan must be put in place to take advantage of any and all beneficial opportunities. Directives are strong requests or orders t issued by a decision-maker in a business or organization in most cases (McQuerrey). These individuals should be knowledgeable and will be in a position of authority. When a decision-maker issues an order for a specific project to be selected, the project generally rises to the top of the list to accommodate the boss. Other influences that can drive the project......
