-I think this product would be useful to someone who always busy.As a busy person,you know the importance of staying a step ahead of your clients and your family. You probably know the feeling of being tied to your desk or home so as not to miss that important email or phone call and to maintain convenient access to essential data—proposals, schedules, contact information, business news or the stock market.However, thousands have newfound freedom using PDA-style smartphones designed for business (and fun). Today’s smartphone traces its roots back to the personal digital assistant or PDA. Originally used as businessperson’s right hand to track important client information, project statuses, and task lists, smartphones have evolved into an everyman’s (and woman’s) tool.

Thank You...

Blog Reflection..

Do you think the life of our human race will be prolonged or driven to extinction by computers?
Why do you think so?

-I think that the life of our human race will be prolonged because humans are the one who created computer.Also,humans are the ones who spread technologies throughout the world.Without humans,who is going to 'wake up' the computers?

Would the human race survive if all the computers in the world crashed?Who would be most badly hit?

-The human race will survive,but it would be a HUGE chaos because we are so attached to it.Is like "No Computers No Life".Yes,computers make a big impact in our life.The most badly hit would be the Goverment,Military,Big Companies and so on.Because computers are their main source and main equipment to do their work.

Web Critic Assignment

The Web Site that i'm going to critic is Wikipedia..

Wikipedia is a multilingual, web-based, free-content encyclopedia project based on an openly-editable model.

Affiliation: Wikipedia does affiliate with other websites because it represents as an encyclopedia.

Audience: The straightforward language of the Wikipedia is appropriate for most levels.Although entries are likely to contain terms that are unfamiliar to many users,most terms are hyperlinked so that users can easily access a quick definition and/or explanation.

Authority: Wikipedia provides almost no clues for the typical article by which reliability can be appraised.A list of edits provides only screen names or in the case of the anonymous editors,numerical Internet Protocol addresses. In fact, Wikipedia has had to back off on the idea of allowing anyone anywhere to edit. Anonymous users can no longer create new articles on Wikipedia. And some (especially controversial) articles are protected and only allowed to be edited by some in the community.

Content: The content of Wikipedia is sometimes from an original source and others are from people's opinion.Be careful not to over-rely on Wikipedia in research process.

Currency: Most of the articles in Wikipedia are up-to-date and current due to updated original source.

Design: The website is visually interesting,simple and not text-heavy.It is suitable for an encyclopedia.

Objectivity: The objectivity of Wikipedia is to use it as a research tool.But now,most of the articles in Wikipedia are based on the authors opinion,not the original facts.

Thank You..
