The impact of ICT on an adult in employment for mobile and Email

Extracts from this document...


The impact of ICT on an adult in employment - Mobile and email Email David Smith uses email to send his report to the company that he is working for at the time and to send or receive photographs over the internet. Sending reports over the internet saves a lot of time and is an easier method of communicating than through the post. Before he got the internet he used the post to send the report to the company.
