Discuss How Mobile Computing Has Changed the Way in Which the Internet Is Used
Whereby, desktops are becoming less popular, counter to the circumstances of portable devices, which are enabling access to digital content anytime and anyplace. Mobile computing is often referred to an as a small portable device, like for instance a laptop. A laptop is still considered to be a desktop computer, but it is lighter compared to desktop. In technology terms, one of the main priorities of a laptop is the portability of using it in various locations, and connecting to the internet anywhere Wi-Fi is offered. This means that laptops will almost always have either an Intel or AMD microprocessor (as found in desktop PCs and detailed on the hardware page), and will run a desktop operating system and applications, and most commonly Windows with applications such as Microsoft Office.
Just about everything in the world of the Internet still lies ahead of us, and mobile communications as we know them must be reinvented by making them more digital. The future will be shaped by innovation converging with the impact of mobility. This applies not just to social media but to the Internet in general, particularly in the social communications field. I feel that many people do not understand what we are doing and have no idea of the potential development of companies like ours at the global level. Right now, there may be somebody out there, in some corner of the world, developing the tool that will turn the Internet upside down all over again. The tool that will alter our day-to-day life once more. Creating more opportunities, providing new benefits to individuals, bringing more individual and collective well-being. Just ten years ago, social media did not exist; in the next ten years, something else radically new will emerge. There are many areas in which products, processes, and services can be improved or created afresh. The future is brimming with opportunities, and the future of the Internet has only just begun. Social media are evolving to become something more, and innovation must be their hallmark if they are to continue being relevant. Tuenti now embraces both social communications and telecom services provision, offering value added by letting you use the mobile app free of charge and without using up your data traffic allowance, even if you have no credit on your prepaid card—this is wholly revolutionary in the telecom sector. The convergence of social media with more traditional sectors is already bringing about a new context for innovation, a new arena for the development and growth of the Internet.
Smart mobile devices such as BlackBerrys, Q-phones and iPhones, have become a business necessity (Krizan, Merrier, Logan, and Williams, 2010). Businesses both large and small have increased their investments in the smart mobile devices technology to enhance communication and increase their productivity. The smart mobile devices promote wireless communication, which in today’s world forms a key part of the organization performance (Krizan, Merrier, Logan, and Williams, 2010). Managers are able to plan their calendars and schedule appointments on their smart mobile devices eliminating the need of having staff to do the same job. This somehow helps the organization to cut labor costs. Organizations such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) can be able to provide health information via podcasts, which are easily accessible via the smart mobile devices. Broker banks have also adopted the use of smart mobile devices in conducting their businesses. According to Cox (2006), a mobile application in the smart phones allows the sales representative to access various account data. The smart phones have eMobile software, which allows the smart phone to connect to customer relationship management (CRM) data (Cox, 2006). Distance education has been a field that has been expanding. According to Fuegen (2012), the growth of distance education has been attributed to the need for flexibility in teaching and learning. This has been fostered by the increasing number of individuals acquiring smart phones. Fuegen (2012) indicates that data from the Pew Research Center, in 2012, showed that 46% of the adult population in America owned a smartphone. Other mobile devices that have influenced the distance learning education include e-book readers, which are small lightweight devices used for reading digital texts, for instance, electronic books and PDF documents and tablets, which are similar in nature to smartphones but are usually larger in size (Fuegen, 2012).
Ultimately, since the arrival of the mobile, it has helped humans in many ways; some of which are: mobile phones are very important in case of an emergency they safe lives in cases of accidents and other related issues. One of the most important use of smart phones is that they ensure safety. Families can easily communicate with each other while away. To cap it up, mobile technology is here to stay and holds a lot more features in the future to meet even the most of our basic needs and to make life a lot easier.
