Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The impact of ICT on an adult in employment Khalik Rahman is an independent executive chauffeur. This means that he drives people around in and out of the country and, he sometimes goes abroad for business trips with his client. His services are exclusively for corporative clients such as investment banks, corporate law firms, TV media and such. He receives his work via email, text messages and XDA II. He is a hardworking man and he works full time. In order to receive payments from the client, Mr Rahman needs to send invoices every month. The technologies Khalik Rahman uses for work purposes are his XDA II, email and Microsoft Word. The technologies Khalik Rahman uses personally are digital TV and the internet. The technology he uses socially is a mobile phone and the internet. Work Use XDA II An XDA II is a smart phone which means that it is an electronic handheld device that is a combination of a mobile phone, personal digital assistant (PDA) or other information appliance. It contains games, internet access, address book, phone, note pad and much more. Khalik Rahman uses his XDA to contact his company and for his company to contact him. The XDA II has Khalik Rahman's own company software stored in it and his pick up's are sent to it. ...read more.

Middle

If Khalik Rahman needs to send his invoice to his company immediately then he can attach the file to an email and send it. When Khalik Rahman sends emails then a copy of the email is saved on the sent folder. The disadvantage of email is that if you email someone and someone else is on the phone then they will be charged of that telephone call. Also junk mail can be very irritating to Khalik Rahman and is unwanted. Personal Use The Internet The internet is a worldwide accessible network. The internet has no effect on Khalik Rahman's work but it does help keep his personal life balanced. Khalik Rahman finds the internet very useful because he can do banking online. Instead of waiting in a queue for hours or looking for a space to park his car he can just bank online. He can also do online shopping rather than going down to the shops. When Khalik Rahman is on a break he books for vacations on the internet, he also gets to read about them before he books it. Khalik Rahman has a lot of interest in music and downloads various types using the internet. Sometimes he looks for new car parts when some parts of his car are damaged, he also uses the internet to search for cars. ...read more.

Conclusion

With a fax machine Khalik Rahman communicates with his family and friends in and out of the country. A great thing about fax machines is that you can add attachments from his PC to, he can do all this without leaving his desk. If khalik Rahman runs out of ink then he can print out his fax on a standard printer. A fax machine has a black list which contains numbers of other fax machines which he does nit want to receive, so this means the machine wont accept them, this is a very great advantage because he does not need to worry about junk faxes. The disadvantage of fax machines is that some of them are very expensive to buy and require several steps. Overall I think that ICT technology has very much helped Khalik Rahman in his work, social and personal life. Because Khalik Rahman is a busy man he can socialise easily with the use of telecommunication devices and instead of just sitting the Khalik Rahman can use his time doing things involving technology. ICT has made life interesting for Khalik Rahman as he can do more things compared to what he did when he was young. His work life has also loosened up a bit with the use of ICT because people used to travel in carriages which used to be a little uncomfortable.
