LAB ON NEW TECHNOLOGIES

 

After spending a bit more time on your "21Ideas" assignment, investigate what is happening in the three technologies Cairncross explores as she traces changes in telecommunciations via telephone, television and the Internet. Below are some links that you might follow--and, most of these come with links as well.

Take notes so that you can explain these developments to the class and describe them in your journal. During the last 10 minutes of class write a paragraph in which you deal with the question: What else is new?

a. E-Books

b. TV-Email

c. Cell Phones

3Com and Palm platform

More PDAs wireless?

Web banking via cell phone

Motorola phones as web browsers

TV and Web in phone lines--pilot program in Georgia
