Unit 3d Ict in the community Introduction I am going to talk about Harlesden community and how Technology has made an enormous influence in our society and community. These days ict is found in every day life. Ict is found in shops like corner shops and ect. All of them shops have modern and advanced cash registers and also have digitized cctv fix on walls. Also there are thousands of internet cafes that is open inside London.

It has word processing and spreadsheets. It has it own mini keyboard and has a text pen. Has internet browsing can send emails. Disadvantage The disadvantage of it is that if you lose it you lose all your data and it could be easily theft .and its very expensive to buy. I think using a pda is very useful as you can store useful information and easily carry it around. . CARS Cars are use for travelling around. Cars are used for people that work far way or if people got walking problems. Also using a car can get to your work place faster than busses where you have to wait for busses and change. When bus strikes come up people without cars wouldn't be able to attend to work on that day. A car contains dozens of different technologies to use on a car. Wearing seat-belts can save your life in a car accident Disadvantage The disadvantage of using a car is that you have to pay tax's insurance. If you have a sport car or getting in a accident will increase the insurance . Some cars needs 40 pounds worth of petrol for a week or 2 when some people cannot afford that much money. The disadvantages of using a seat belt are that they are not made very well. ...read more.

Disadvantage The disadvantage of using email is that you get lots of spam or junk mail and you can get caught to a fraud. Navigation system An automotive navigation system is a satellite navigation system designed for use in cars. Unlike other GPSsystems, these use position data to locate the user on a road in the unit's map database. Using the road database, the unit can give directions to other locations along roads also in its database. Dead reckoning using distance data from sensors attached to the drivetrain and a gyroscope can be used for greater reliability, as GPS signal loss and/or multipathcan occur due to urban canyons or tunnels. Adavantage of using a navigation system it wont lead you into road blocks triffic as it tells.. Disdavantages the disdavantage of using gps is that it leads to accidents in roads.also the gps can mofunction and give can be giving you the wrong directions .
