At the International Consumer Electronics Show, You can find just about anything.

Automobile enthusiasts are in luck this year. Renault revealed an electric race car.

Audi unveiled a self-driving A7 - the cars park themselves. Last year, the technology needed for their driver-less sedan took up the entire rear end of the car. This year, the computer fits on a card about the size of an iPad.

Induct showed off its self-piloted shuttle, called the Navia. The company's Max LeFevre says it's also 100 percent electric.

"It's a shuttle, so it's for public transport for eight to 10 passengers. It works with lasers which work kind of like a bat," he said. "It sends out beams that bounce off the walls and other things in the environment. That way the vehicle can create the map of the environment.

Ford made headlines with its solar car - the C-MAX Solar Energi. Solar cells are mounted on the car’s roof, but the trick, says Ford Motor Company’s Dave McCreadie, is the solar canopy.

"It boosts the power of the solar panels by essentially magnifying the sun. So it takes a larger square footprint area of the sun and concentrates down onto the solar panels," he said. "The purpose of this is to enable the customer to recharge their vehicle off the grid.

The Ford C-MAX Solar Energi is still just a concept. If you’re looking for something more tangible, 3D printers are capable of producing more complex, high-quality designs, and the cost of a 3D printer is falling. Some cost less than $500.
But 3D Systems has created something new: 3D-printed food.

“Today we're debuting two food-safe 3D printers and they're the first food-safe 3D printers," said Liz Von Hasseln of 3D Systems.

Von Hasseln says the ChefJet and ChefJetPro use melted sugar to create sweet creations like candy and cake decorations.

“So you might say, 'I want to work on a cake topper or I want to work on a drink…...

Electronic Cigarettes

...Electronic Cigarettes I. INTRODUCTION (4 min). NOTE: Show slide 1. A. Opening Statement: How many people here smoke or use tobacco products? You really can’t take out a cigarette and smoke anywhere anymore. You can’t smoke in the bar anymore, and that was once a sacred ritual. You can’t go to your favorite coffee shop and enjoy a couple of cigarettes with your favorite brew. And when you are working and you want to have a smoke, you will have to go outside and smoke a cigarette, no matter the weather. It really has become a pain to be a smoker. Also, let’s not forget that it has become so expensive to smoke as well, with the price of cigarettes increasing every year it seems. Did you know there is a healthier alterative to smoking? And the fact of the matter is that this is not a new thing at all. It’s been around for a lot longer than you would think. Electronic Cigarettes are not only affordable but a lot healthier for you. But you can use them anywhere; there is no law that states you cannot use them in public places. Today I will discuss with you the history of the Electronic Cigarettes. After today’s class I’ll come back for a question and answer session about the topics we are about to discuss. B. Objectives. NOTE: Show slides 2-4. 1.

...Global Player in the Consumer Electronics Market: Knowledge@Wharton ( LG’s Michael Ahn on Becoming a Global Player in the Consumer Electronics Market Published : January 06, 2011 in Knowledge@Wharton In 2000, executives at South Korea-based LG Electronics set the goal of becoming a top-three player globally by the close of the decade. One year early, in 2009, the company achieved its goal. Meanwhile, revenue has jumped from $5.6 billion in 2004 to more than $13 billion in 2010. Michael Ahn guided the branding effort for LG Electronics North America before stepping down as regional president and CEO last year to become a senior adviser at LG Electronics USA. In a recent conversation with Knowledge@Wharton, Ahn -- who was visiting the University of Pennsylvania to make a speech as part of the Wharton Leadership Lecture series -- named patience, consumer-targeted marketing and achieving synergy among the firm's different divisions as the factors catapulting LG Electronics from a relatively obscure maker of commodity goods to a premium global brand.

Consumer Attitudes Towards Electronic Retailing

...have different implications depending on the income level of the country. In high-income countries, for instance, financial literacy is often viewed as a complement to consumer protection. One of the primary goals of financial education is therefore to equip individuals with the capability to navigate a complex array of financial products, including pensions and mortgages, and to make sound financial decisions. The importance of doing so has been further underscored in recent years by the financial crisis and the continued shifting of retirement planning responsibilities from the public sector to individuals. In low-income countries, however, financial outreach is much more limited, and more sophisticated consumer products are typically accessible only to a small percentage of the population. The role of financial literacy in increasing access to and take-up of financial services therefore receives more focus. Another important distinction is that people in low-income countries rely to a much greater extent on microenterprise for their livelihood. Acquiring ―managerial capital‖, or business skills and knowledge, is thus a more relevant component of financial capability than for the typical wage-earning worker in a developed country. For this reason, we devote separate sections to financial education for consumers (in both developed and 2 developing countries), and financial education for entrepreneurs (mainly in developing countries). In the next section, we begin by......

...EXISTING SYSTEM In Metropolitan cities, buses play an important role in the public transportation. Even though various kinds of transportations are implemented, the bus services still play a major part of the mass transit in Metropolitan cities. Due to increasing petrol and disel prices buses are the best alternative to own vehicles for the public. Additionally, it is much convenient since buses are available in atmost routes and bus passengers need not be worried for finding a parking area. The major problem faced by the passengers is delay in scheduled arrival time of bus to bus stop. The ITS- Intelligent Transport System is widely implemented to provide required information to passengers. In ITS every bus is mounted with a GPS module and electronic displays boards displaying arrival time of bus are placed in every bus stops. The Global position system (GPS) mounted as part of the Vehicle Mounted Unit in the bus will receive the longitude and latitude coordinates from the Satellite through a process of triangulation. This information is then sent across to the Central Control station through the wireless communication link – GSM / GPRS. The application at the Central control station on receiving the position inputs will update the display boards at the bus shelters / stops enroute and at the bus terminal platform display panel and the general display panel at the related bus terminals. The Passenger Information system will be driven by the following core sub-systems Central......

...Theory This chapter presents the theories behind consumer behaviour. It will also discuss online consumer behaviour in order to continue with the identification of the influencing factors. The theories of consumer behaviour will be used in order to be able to find consumer segments that will show whom the identified factors affect. 3.1 Introduction This dissertation aims at finding factors that affect the online consumer’s buying behaviour. By reading literature concerning consumer characteristics and online consumer characteristics we believe to find implications for certain factors that are of importance for the online consumer. The Internet is a worldwide accessible series of computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol. It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, such as electronic mail, file transfer, the interlinked Web pages and other documents of the World Wide Web. Originally the Internet was mainly used by academics, research scientists and students; however that scenario has changed as commercial organizations have moved to incorporate the World Wide Web into their promotional campaigns, and by offering the facility of online purchasing (Jobber & Fahy, 2003). The Internet has evolved into a worldwide accessible marketplace for information exchange and e-commerce. The......

Analysis of Global Production Networks Within Consumer Electronic Industry.

...Global Production Networks within Consumer Electronic Industry. Introduction A diagnostic characteristic of contemporary globalization is that the component parts of the world economy are increasingly interconnected in qualitatively different ways from the past. Another way of saying this is that the world economy consists of tangled webs of production circuits and networks that cut through, and across, all geographical scales, including the bounded territory of the state. It is too simple to just define the global production networks, that involving a process of production, distribution and consumption of commodities, goods and services, as technical-economic mechanisms (Coe, Dicken and Hess, 2008). More than this oversimplified conceptual framework, Levy (2008) argues GPN as ‘simultaneously economic and political phenomena . . . organizational fields in which actors struggle over the construction of economic relationships, governance structures, institutional rules and norms, and discursive frames . . . GPNs thus exist within the ‘‘transnational space’’ that is constituted and structured by transnational elites, institutions, and ideologies’. In Levy’s theory, we can find out that more than a economic process of productions, GPNs is also a ‘social’ and ‘cultural’ phenomena in which the geographically differentiated political and social cultural circumstance are also shaped (Coe, Dicken and Hess, 2008). Considering the consumer electronic industry in particular, what we......

...The article “Business is Show Business: Management Presentations as Performance” written by Brigitte Biehl-Missal is the result of a study done by the author from 2003 to 2009 of annual general meetings (AGM), press conferences and analyst meetings. The purpose of this study was to compare and contrast these types of organizational meetings/communications with the theatre and to understand more about how all of the elements that go into a meeting impact the final results and participants perception of the meeting. Important to note is how theatre techniques are used in performance situations to create experiences because “…aesthetic techniques increasingly are employed in organizations for controlling and influencing employee behaviors and external audiences.” At these major corporate functions, what could be considered unimportant details by some (lighting, colors, stage presence, and proximity to name a few) could influence the outcome of the meeting and help to determine whether the audience hears the intended message or takes away a completely different experience. This “theatre theory” discussed by Biehl-Missal focuses on elements that are typically thought to be part of dramatic activities such as scenography, lighting system and music, clothing, style of performing, and rhetoric. The article discusses how at AGMs, management can use a white spotlight on the speaker to give the impression of truth or trustworthiness. In contrast, management could cast the......
