The smart phone development is the most exciting and crucial step for mobile internet. The first smartphone in the world was Motorola A6188 in year 2000. Since then, the smartphone industry has been developing continually. New manufacturers continue to seek a place in the market, while older, more established companies try to obtain their market share. Therefore, the most crucial step for smartphone industry is how to use innovation to face the challenge of competitors from both the smartphone industry and other intelligent devices in the future. 4 aspects of innovation will play an important role for the samrtphone industry development: multi-core technology, larges screen trend, cloud and integration technology, and near-field communication (NFC).


The smart phone development is the most exciting and crucial step for mobile internet. At the beginning when smart phone market rose, cell phone manufacturers started to focus on software but not hardware. The destination of innovation is to satisfy the customers’ needs, and to share a big portion of the market. As we all know, smartphones can do everything from acting as a GPS, to allowing you to video call someone on the other side of the world. Moving forwards smartphones will continue to be disruptive, as they are one of the key components in the movement towards the “internet of things”. In the future, smartphones are expected to be reflected in four major areas of innovation: multi-core, larger screen, cloud integration, near-field communication (NFC).


In the article “Multi-core the mobile phones”, it said that “multi-core technology makes high speed and efficiency of smartphone processors possible”. The benefits of multi-core phone is that redundant core can be turned off to save battery consumption, and also it reduces the temperature while proccesing. In this…...

...Learning Personal Responsibility Although not always easy to accept, learning to accept personal responsibility is one’s choice. Becoming aware of feelings and accepting change will result in better decision-making as well as positive success in one’s life. Responsibility continues throughout one’s own actions therefore making the right choices will build character and not result in negative consequences. Going to school or work each day is a personal responsibility that we adapt to or can either feel forced to do. Whichever the choice may be, the results are simple, choosing success or blaming others for dropping out or quitting. To get ahead in life, learning to be responsible for one’s own actions is a priority. Only you can choose how your life will go, and taking the time and effort will make a difference in a person’s attitude and behavior. Taking responsibility towards your education refers to time management, study skills and learning. As students we are responsible for excelling, therefore if we fail to meet those standards it is our own responsibility and not that of others. “Research has demonstrated that college outcomes are tied to the efforts that students put into their work and the degree to which they are involved with their studies” (Davis & HillmanMurrell, n.d.). As a student I am responsible for my own efforts that I put into my study time, assignments and learning. Prioritizing what your choices are is one way of learning personal responsibility and......

...Testing Process Summary There will be several types of testing to ensure the final product is ready to be released and implemented. Some of the checks will be manual reviews, and the others will be automated. The manual checks will be done using a predetermined list of mistakes to check for, and each participant will go through the code of the software to look for syntax errors and other grammar mistakes. This will help prevent an abundance of errors when it comes to the automated portion. As the code is what makes the program work the way it does, the programmers will sit down while the program is used to make sure it meets the design requirements and delivers what the company needs. The programmer will be able to fix problems as they go through the dry run of the program. One of the slower processes and obviously more thorough of the inspections would be going through the code line by line while the programmer executes the each block of code to ensure it functions properly. After all of the manual checks are done, the automation process will begin. The first process will be done by scripting. A script will run to enter data and make selections based on a list of data generated by the programmer. The script will run until it is complete and then it will come to the individual module testing. Each separate module of the program will be tested by itself with selected data and then with each sub-ordinate module to ensure everything works properly. The......

...Scenario 2 Brian McDonald had an incredible train collection it consisted of rare and one-of-a-kind trains. One day whole visiting another hobbyist Harry, Brian told him that when he retired from his job he would sell his trains and spend his life traveling on real trains. Brian once told Harry that he was the only person who he would sell his trains to because he know Harry would take care and appreciate as much as he did. Harry was excited and said he looked forward to the day when he could buy the trains. Harry spent the next two years and a large portion of his savings building a new 2,000-square foot room in his home to make room for his new collection of trains. Harry told Brian that he was building a new room but Brian did not reply and simply smiled. When Brian retired he sold his collection not to Brian but to a neighbor, James. Harry was furious and hurt so he sued Brian. Unfortunately, Harry did not have Brian sign any contract to prove that Brian had an obligation to sell the trains to him. According to the Cheeseman (2010) a contract is “a promise or a set of promises for the breach of which the law gives a remedy or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes a duty” (p. 156). The problem is that no one made an offer, and a contract is created if an offer is made and accepted. Therefore, Harry would not have a case against Brian based on spoken contract because no terms were agreed upon. Harry could also argue that because he built the......

...How do you know you have validated a research study based on data gathered from primary or secondary sources? Have you been involved with any product test-marketing project? Explain. How did the resulting statistics affect the product’s marketing strategy? How can organizations skew the statistical outcomes of their business research? When searching for information on a topic, it is important to understand the value of primary, secondary, and tertiary sources. Primary sources allow researchers to get as close as possible to original ideas, events, and empirical research as possible. Such sources may include creative works, first hand or contemporary accounts of events, and the publication of the results of empirical observations or research. Secondary sources analyze, review, or summarize information in primary resources or other secondary resources. Even sources presenting facts or descriptions about events are secondary unless they are based on direct participation or observation. Moreover, secondary sources often rely on other secondary sources and standard disciplinary methods to reach results, and they provide the principle sources of analysis about primary sources. Tertiary sources provide overviews of topics by synthesizing information gathered from other resources. Tertiary resources often provide data in a convenient form or provide information with context by which to interpret it. The distinctions between primary, secondary, and tertiary sources......

...Database systems are a complete index of data put into one location. Databases are used in all businesses weather small mom and pop size to multimillion worldwide companies. They are used to keep track and accurate points of the data that their company has. As well as customer interaction with the company. A customer would use a hotels database to find what hotel rooms are available to rent. A Company uses a database so that all employees that need to access it can access the same one so other departments are not doing things without other departments know. Meaning if HR fires someone and payroll may not know if they do not have access to it, then the fired person would still get paid. But, by using a database system all the department know what each other is doing so when HR fires someone Payroll knows to stop paying that employee. Each instance of SQL Server has four system databases (master, model, tempdb, and msdb) and one or more user databases. Some organizations have only one user database, containing all the data for their organization. Some organizations have different databases for each group in their organization, and sometimes a database used by a single application. For example, an organization could have one database for sales, one for payroll, one for a document management application, and so on. Sometimes an application uses only one database; other applications may access several databases. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa214422(v=SQL.80).aspx...

....narisetty•Chapter 6—Questions R17 R17. A permanent address for a mobile node is its IP address when it is at its home network. A care-of-address is the one its gets when it is visiting a foreign network. The COA is assigned by the foreign agent (which can be the edge router in the foreign network or the mobile node itself). •Chapter 8—Questions R1, R3, R29. R1. Confidentiality is the property that the original plaintext message can not be determined by an attacker who intercepts the ciphertext-encryption of the original plaintext message.Message integrity is the property that the receiver can detect whether the message sent (whether encrypted or not) was altered in transit. The two are thus different concepts,and one can have one without the other. An encrypted message that is altered in transmit may still be confidential (the attacker can not determine the original plaintext) but will not have message integrity if the error is undetected. Similarly, a message that is altered in transit (and detected) could have been sent in plaintext and thus would not be confidential. R3. In symmetric key systems, the keys of receiver and sender are identical and are secret. In public key systems, a pair of keys is used. One of the keys is known to both receiver and sender, or in other word, to the whole world, while the other key is known only by sender. That’s the major difference between the two systems. R29.

...Week Five Assignment Alison Eades ACC/561 December 22, 2014 Jason See Week 5 Assignment Exercise 18-1 is about the Martinez Company’s decision to introduce a new product manufacture by either a capital-intensive method or a labor-intensive method. Provided are the manufacturing cost for both methods as well as the estimate. The capital-intensive manufacturing cost estimates are as follow: $5.00 per unit for direct materials, $6.00 per unit for direct labor, $3.00 per unit for variable overhead, and $2,508,000 for fixed manufacturing cost. The labor-intensive manufacturing cost estimates are as follow: $5.50 per unit for direct materials, $8.00 per unit for direct labor, $4.50 per unit variable overhead, and $1,538,000. The company’s research department recommends an introductory unit sale price of $30. The incremental selling expenses are estimated to $502,000 annually plus $2.00 for each unit sold, regardless of which manufacturing method is used. Capital-intensive methodologies of production require higher levels of labor. A: The estimated break-even point in annual unit sales of the new product is calculated differently dependent on the used method. 1.) With the capital-intensive method, the Martinez Company must calculate total fixed cost first; $2,508,000+$502,000=$3,010,000. The contribution margin per unit must also be calculated through selling price less variable cost ($30-$5-$6-$3-$2=$14). Total fixed cost over contribution margin per unit......

Its members swore, in the Tennis Court Oath, to create a new constitution for France. b. Nervous about the new National Constituent Assembly, the king gathered troops near Versailles and Paris in early July of 1789. The citizens of Paris , anxious about the royal troops, formed a militia and, on July 14, 1789, stormed the fortress of the city, the Bastille , earning a position in the French Revolution for working-class people. c. Following the events of July 14, 1789, workers in many French cities formed militias, and peasants rose up in the countryside in a movement called the Great Fear.
