Introduction

Task 1 Introduction The access to information that has been created by the World Wide Web has been a huge effect on society and how individuals live their lives. Moreover, because of the huge volume of information available, finding information the information you need is not is always not straightforward. In this task I have been asked to use my internet skills to identify websites that could identify possible mobile phone service providers. About how be finding out what is a search engines, how do they work, how they work and all the different types of search engines they are. To do this I will have to find out as much information I can about search engines by using different resources. I will also use and try many search engines to find relevant information to prove/disprove my five hypothesis. The information am looking for should be a paragraph. I will be looking for the best possible package, including free minutes and texts and a good choice of available mobile phone models, r alternatively choose a pay as you go tariff. I will also report it back to him with the finding of the research as well as conducting some financial analysis which should give him an indication of values for money. Search Engines A search engine is the program that searches documents for specified keywords and returns a list of the documents where the keywords were found. Although search engine is really a general class of programs, the term is often used to specifically describe systems like Alta Vista and Excite that enable users to search for documents on the World Wide Web and USENET newsgroups. The WWW can be a powerful tool when used for searching for information, especially when search engines are utilised correctly. Search engines allow you to find web pages via their content. When you type what you want to find into search engine, the database is searched to find all the pages containing the words, and hyperlinks to take you to the page. ...read more.

However yahoo's homepage is much cluttered and has a lot of extra information as well as the search box, in turns of this may make that user to believe that it is very difficult to use it and complicated too. Another aspect that makes search engines difficult to use is where the sponsored links are. On ask and yahoo the sponsored links are located at the top, before the results. These search engines makes it difficult because it is sometimes hard to recognise which is which. On the other hand, Google does have sponsored links but instead of the being on the top before the results, they are on the right hand site and out of the way but are still encase if someone want to use them. The web pages were from all over the world unless stated by the "only UK pages" button that is located under the search box for Google and yahoo. Ask doesn't have that option, so the web pages were all form all over the web but doesn't have as many websites engine were put in the order of the most relevant website to the least relevant website to the least relevant website. This should make searching for a certain bit of information bit information much easier because you shouldn't have search through web pages to find the information you are looking for . If I was to use two search engines in the futures, I would use yahoo and Google because Google has a large database of websites and the sponsor links being down the right hand side of the page and out of the way, although I wouldn't like to use the advance search because it is all cluttered together and dose seem harder to use. I would use yahoo in the future because the relevant of results varies depending on the information but in all is easy to locate information quickly, also the advance search is spaced out and gives individual options to make it easier to use. ...read more.

Conclusion

The disadvantage was marking the boxes on the database as if they were not marked, or marked on, I didn't always get the accurate information back from the query. In the future, if I were to complete this task in the future I would make sure that all the disadvantages and not so good point as above were corrected. TASK 5 I am creating a spreadsheet which I will be able to calculate the total cost of different tariff options from different mobile phone networks. -I will create macros to help me navigate through the system -I will use formulas to calculate -all the charts and graphs The diagram above shows the macros I recorded. I also created a macro in my spreadsheet to input and delete on one of my tables. This would enable me to input data when I needed it and if need be, delete it if i didn't need it anymore. I did this by creating an auto-shape and then creating the macro into the auto-shape. This screen shot shows the percentage in tariff in orange. CALCULATION OF MINUTE USED AND THE TOTAL COST This screen shows the formula view of minute used, the cost for extra minutes and the total coast.
