Introduction

How ICT systems affect everyday life. School: * Memory Stick We use this technology for many different reasons. We use this to transport our work from school to home and vice versa, this way we can continue our work at home or even finish it off. It is very easy to use and can become very useful. I mainly use it to transport my work from school to home, this way I can finish my work at home, I have more time to do the work carefully and really concentrate. They really aren't that expensive, depending on the size of memory, although we can fit a lot of different documents on it. There is a disadvantage to it; although we can fit a lot of documents not always do we have enough space therefore having to make the person delete some other things. It is also so small that it could get lost or misplaced. Overall it's very handy to have one, especially if we do a lot of computer work at school. * Internet Internet is a very important part of an ICT lesson. ICT is nothing without the Internet. We use Internet for research and finding out things. The school blocks certain sites that we can not view at school, such as gaming sites and sites like hotmail and msn, which can be very unpleasant, because imagine if we were doing a project ...read more.

MSN has evolved a lot, from Windows Messenger to the most recent one that has come out, Windows Live Messenger. You can chat with people anywhere over the world, send files, communicate using audio, see each other through a webcam, and play games against each other, use application sharing. Application Sharing is when a person that you allow can look at what you are doing and can even take over your computer if you let them to. This can help if you have some sort of problem and you don't know how to fix the problem of any sorts, they can help you to actually resolve the problem themselves. In order to have MSN Messenger, you must have a computer compatible with the MSN Messenger such as Windows 98, Windows 2000 or Windows XP and an internet connection. You can only talk to people who also have a MSN Messenger or any other IM Messenger of any sort, examples, Yahoo Messenger, AOL IM, Sapo Messenger. These are very popular because it helps you to keep in touch with people and most importantly, it's free! * Mobile Phone The most important fact about mobile phones is that you can use them almost everywhere without cables or electricity. By using mobile phones, you can communicate with everyone whenever you want and wherever you are. ...read more.

Conclusion

An MP3 is very useful if you love listening to music. With an MP3 you can listen to music whenever you want and wherever you are. There are a lot of types of MP3 Players, different shapes and sizes but also different space capacity. For example, you can have different space capacities such as; 128MB holds up to 32 songs. 256MB holds up to 64 songs. 512MB holds up to 120 songs. 1G holds up to 240 songs. 2G holds up to 400 songs. 4G holds up to 1000 songs. So, if you listen to a lot of music then the more space the MP3 player, the more songs you can put on. Of course, the more space you require the more expensive it's going to be. People say that the best MP3 Players are the iPods, this may be because you have more features such as; games, photo gallery etc but normal MP3 Players like Sony, Philips etc usually last longer, especially the battery life. MP3 Players which run on batteries don't last as long as rechargeable MP3 Players. Can you imagine the amount of money you waste in buying new batteries? If you listen to your MP3 Player often, like everyday, then the batteries are only going to last about 1-3 days, depending on the amount you listen to it and how loud you listen to it. The louder you listen to it, the more battery it wastes. ?? ?? ?? ?? Miss MacLaren Daniela Goncalves 10W ...read more.
