Week 7 – Introduction and Conclusion

Today, the world is more dependent on technology than ever before. More than 90% of Americans own a computerized device (Gahran, 2011). People received text messages and emails on their cell phones, go online to order food, cars are able to park themselves, and while driving, the lights are controlled by centralized computer system (Greenman, 1998). The truth of the matter is, that people have become so dependent on technology that they are not prepared for any type of service interuptions. With non-disaster related blackouts up 124% since the early 90’s (Patterson, 2010) and the increase in disruptive weather patterns, people should start taking steps to sever their dependency on technology, or at the very least have a solid plan in place for when things go black. We should also pay more attention to the information that we make available online. The most damaging information is the information that we make readily available with little regard for who might be viewing it. People are entirely too dependent on technology related services for communication, commerce, and social media. Our over reliance on technology is causing the social life of many individuals to become distorted. Before the boom of technological growth, people socialized and interacted, but today many people prefer connecting with their friends and family through social media, as opposed to face to face communication. The relationships with our friends and family have been negatively affected because the good times are no longer shared, they are read about on a website. The technology reliance has also caused us to miss out on the real world, seeing as how we are more focused on our own lives and the interaction with other is kept to a minimum. This individualistic behavior brought on by technology affects how we relate to…...

Dhirubhai & Reliance

...Dhirubhai Ambani and Reliance "Our dreams have to be bigger. Our ambition higher. Our commitment deeper. And our efforts greater. This is my dream for Reliance and for India." - Dhirubhai Ambani. "The country has lost an iconic proof of what an ordinary Indian fired by the spirit of enterprise and driven by determination, can achieve in his own lifetime. Not only did Ambani build a large and diversified business conglomerate but also inspired many first generation entrepreneurs with his success." - Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Prime Minister, Republic of India. "Dhirubhai built an empire that is rock solid and he will always remain an icon." - Kumar Mangalam Birla, Chairman, Aditya Vikram Birla Group.

Reliance

...RELIANCE COMMUNICATION [pic] [pic] INTRODUCTION A DREAM COME TRUE The Late Dhirubhai Ambani dreamt of a digital India — an India where the common man would have access to affordable means of information and communication. Dhirubhai, who single-handedly built India’s largest private sector company virtually from scratch, had stated as early as 1999: “Make the tools of information and communication available to people at an affordable cost. They will overcome the handicaps of illiteracy and lack of mobility.” It was with this belief in mind that Reliance Communications (formerly Reliance Infocomm) started laying 60,000 route kilometres of a pan-India fibre optic backbone. This backbone was commissioned on 28 December 2002, the auspicious occasion of Dhirubhai’s 70th birthday, though sadly after his unexpected demise on 6 July 2002. Reliance Communications has a reliable, high-capacity, integrated (both wireless and wireline) and convergent (voice, data and video) digital network. It is capable of delivering a range of services spanning the entire infocomm (information and communication) value chain, including infrastructure and services — for enterprises as well as individuals, applications, and consulting. Today, Reliance Communications is revolutionising the way India communicates and networks, truly bringing about a new way of life.

Reliance

...The total mobile penetration may have reached 14 per cent of India's population. However, industry experts assert 13 per cent of this is in urban centres and only one per cent in villages. The opportunity is not lost on market players like Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited and Reliance Communications who have been present in this segment for a while. Now Hutchison Telecom, Bharti Airtel [ Get Quote ] and Tata Teleservices [ Get Quote ] too have descended on the turf with big network expansion plans and innovative marketing strategies specially tailored for these regions. "The B and C category census towns are raking in good business for us. Currently, almost 35 per cent of our business comes from these circles. However, the potential here is immense as only a per cent of the total population actually use mobile phones," says a spokesperson for Tata Teleservices. TTS, operating in 20 of the existing 23 mobile telephony circles in India, is using a door-to-door marketing strategy, involving members of gram panchayats and trained market-feelers to make residents of villages and small towns aware of the usefulness of mobile telephony and how the system of pre-paid refills work. According to the company spokesperson, value-for-money handsets priced between Rs 1,000 and Rs 1,400 with a plethora of tariff plans to choose from is what is driving subscription growth in these regions. Sanjay Kapoor, joint president, mobility, Bharti Airtel, agrees with the trend and says his company...

Wall-E Reliance on Technology

...constantly hear we are in the ‘age of technology’. It’s crazy how much technology we use on a daily basis. It has become so routine to have technology incorporated into our daily lives that we don’t realize how much we rely on it. Who would have thought Pixar’s animation Wall-E could have so much technological awareness incorporated into the plot. The director of Wall-E created this movie with a universal message of what will happen to our society over time if we do not stop relying on technology. Thousands of years have passed that we have lived with technology, and it has worked in our benefit in many circumstances. However, it has become an addiction, distraction and a nuisance to our society. Society craves the latest technology, and we want more. I will admit I can’t last without my cell phone. Unlike the past however, humans are buried in technology in which we depend on. Cavemen many years ago survived without technology; why is it now that we have become so reliant on it? Just as the passengers on the Axiom in Wall-E, we are controlled and driven by technology. But, what will society do if technology takes a turn for the worse and goes against us? In the film the robots on the Axiom turned against the passengers to assist Wall-E and Eve in saving the Earth. One-day robots could ultimately turn on society and we will be left with nothing to do. Technology is assisting society in becoming helpless and unable to fend for ourselves. Technology has also created a......
