Introduction

Communication Email E-mail is a way of sending text via the internet. The proper name for email is electronic mail. It can let people send the message, storing and receiving messages across the country so it can save more time than posting the letter. But sometimes it takes long time to waiting reply from the people who you send to because some people may read their email once in few weeks. The term e-mail applies both to the Internet e-mail system based on the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and to intranet systems allowing users within one company to e-mail each other. Microsoft also provided they own software called Outlook Express which can help people to receive email more easily from few account. So people can just add they account into Outlook Express. Then it will receive the e-mail send to you. The drawback to using Outlook Express is people could only use it in they own computer. The e-mail will save to their computer hard drive, so the storage is depending how big to your hard drive is. But the drawback of using Outlook Express is if your hard drive is damage, you will loss all the e-mail which store in hard drive. The most popular webmail e-mail service is MSN Hotmail, it was free and people can access it by any computer via a web browser. Eg library, school and work place. Hotmail is offers 250MB of free e-mail storage for every user, but now it have upgrade to 2GB. So people would get more space to storing they e-mail or an attachment file. Hotmail accounts do not have POP3 email access, so it is possible to check one's own e-mail I prefer Gmail than Hotmail because it can log in more quickly and it provides better service. Gmail is a free webmail and POP3 e-mail service provided by Google. The reason I like it is because the main screen of the Gmail is also look better and basic than Hotmail because Hotmail got many advert and it was slow to loading page. ...read more.

But the drawback of using webcam is the picture quiality is bad and it not that fast to transfer the picture of user to other and most the time we just see the slow motion of flame. I think to make it more popular, the webcam should improve the quality of picture and feature as lighting, real-time enhancements (retouching, wrinkle smoothing and vertical stretch). Online conferencing Onlice conferencing is used to hold group meetings or live presentations over the Internet. But now the place which let people posted message for variety of discussion is called a Forum, Message Board, or BBS (bulletin board system). RSS feed RSS is a simple XML-based system that allows users to subscribe to their favorite websites eg newspaper, weblogs or other. RSS formats are specified in XML (a generic specification for data formats). RSS delivers its information as an XML file called an "RSS feed", "webfeed", "RSS stream", or "RSS channel". This software is available to renew the information which is post on that website and it can be standalone programs or extensions to web browser such as FireFox, Internet Explorer7+ and Mozilla Thunderbird. Without this RSS, people may need to land a certain website (eg.Yahoo or Google) to browse the all news which is renewing everyday. With this program, it can help people lot of time, because people can read the title of news to choose want news they might interest to read instead of visit each site individually. It solve a problem for people who regularly use the web and it allows people to easily stay informed by retrieving summaries of the latest content from the sites. Most website especially like news is providing RSS feed, so people only need to download and install the RSS reader to computer, then add the news RSS feed that they interested to their list. Then people can access it from mobile phone or PDA in everywhere. ...read more.

Conclusion

It will be take full control on the whole blog, and other people cannot change anything in somebody blog. So it let blogger can feel very satisfy. * Sharing - The blog is much more than only to deliver the opinion and viewpoints on the network. Blogger can also let the net friend who is interest in speciali together to and sharing information to each other. The personalized message board let user can know the net friend's opinion and reactions at any time in anywhere, RSS feed also provides an instant information exchanges of the blogs. Disadvantage of blog * The lack of contents - The contents of the blog are all personal insights or creations. The reason of many blog is under the condition of lacking because the blogger is less interactive with others people and less creative on diary. * Search problem - The name on the blog and classification method is decided by the author. So sometime when blogger don't put the details delicate enough, which would cause the reader cannot find out the particular data they want. My Space Youtube Evaluation of Communication I think the evaluation of communication is the limitation of the internet use of people because not many people will spend all day on internet and the other problem is not every one got internet at home so it causing not many people will use the good technology which is provide on the internet now. The people who in age 40 to 60 also know nothing about the new communication style is on Internet, because they don't use this in the life before and they don't learn it at their age too. It will hard to let everyone using the new communication in internet but the number of people using this kind of communication is increase every year. Because most teenagers is learning how to use internet at school and this new technology is also attract the teenager to using it. So in the next few year, this technology might become most popular in world. ?? ?? ?? ?? Raymond Lew ...read more.
