The Impact Advances in Wireless Technology Have on Our Lives

Wireless Technology Will Make Our Life Simpler than We Predicted

Modern technologies have more wonders than people could think it would have. Wireless technology is one of these wonders. This technology is not only changed our communication system but also our life style. A recent research has showed that more than 80% of total people of the world use the help of wireless technology and most of them use wireless devices at least one time in everyday. People use wireless devices so much in their daily life so they can’t even think that is a wireless device. Wireless technology is become the part of our daily life. We can’t spend a single day without using any wireless device.

Modern communication was started by the use of telephone lines and at the starting time it was used only for sending news people even believe the news over AP wire but where they can’t go then they waited for the news over air which comes by wireless devices. When the radio had invented the idea of sending news by wire had become useless even this system also destroy the uses of telegraph or telephone lines. Now the era of wireless technology, people only use the telephone lines for formal communications and the use of telegraph is demolished by the use of wireless fax or like these machines.

The former computer networking was based on wire connections but now the modern computer networking is based on wireless connections. So, why you use a wire connection instead of wireless connection? Why you sit on your chair to communicate with others instead of communicating anyone from anywhere with any wireless device. You can think the cost of wireless device is higher than fixed connections but the actual cost is little more than fixed connection cost and the cost of wireless connections is going down and the day is not so long when you can easily buy a wireless connection.

The Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access or WiMAX is the latest invention of wireless technology and the use of this system is become higher than we thought before. A WiMAX network can easily reach 30 miles where the usual wireless connections can reach only a few meters. This technology will change the view of wireless technology and I believe it will provide you the advantage which you can hardly think about. Bluetooth is another invention of wireless technology. This technology becomes popular by its use in the mobile phones. This technology now has various uses. You can find Bluetooth keyboard, mouse or DVD players in the market which will help you to reduce the use of wires.

Our life will be easier with the help of wireless technology. We can do most of our works from anywhere only with the use of wireless devices. I don’t think that it will only make our life easier but our lives will be smooth and lovely with this technology.

Is Wireless Internet Technology Making Journalism Obsolete?

It is no secret that newspapers, magazines, and other publications of traditional journalism are badly hemorrhaging readership. Many people familiar with the industry put the blame on mobile broadband and other Internet technologies, which has led to the Internet rapidly replacing these publications as people’s primary source of news. What impact does this have on the profession of journalism, and on the quality of news that people receive?

Years ago, traditional forms of journalism – i.e. print journalism and television journalism – were largely considered authoritative, independent sources of information. For example, television anchor Walter Cronkite is perceived as turning the public in the United States against the Vietnam War through his efforts to hold the government accountable for its prosecution of the war. Newspaper and television reporting is still largely cited as a reliable source of information in academic publications, similar to the results of formal, scientific studies in disciplines such as biology or chemistry.

However, many people fear that modern Internet journalism has undermined both the independence as well as factual accuracy of journalism. Since the beginning of 24-hour news television, many experts in the field have argued that this journalism has been less about truth, and more about entertaining viewers and getting the “scoop” before one’s competitors. Traditional publications were shamed by the fact that President Bill Clinton’s affair in the Oval Office of the White House was largely uncovered by Internet journalists. Since that event approximately fifteen years ago, Internet journalism, using tools such as 4G internet service and WiMax, has only grown in prominence.

Some have noted that established journalistic institutions instill a code of ethics in their reporters, emphasizing above all to them the twin pillars of accuracy and independence in their pursuit of the truth. By contrast, according to certain people, Internet journalism follows no code of ethics. Therefore, one can never really be sure that personal biases are not distorting Internet reporting. Internet journalism can devolve into an exercise in ferreting out “spin,” or the ways in which these journalists attempt to influence current events as well as simply report on them.

However, one only has to think back to the “yellow journalism” of William Randolph Hearst and others at the turn of the 20th century to rebut this argument. Hearst clearly used his newspapers, as trusted as they were by many people at the time, to promote his particular political agenda and causes. Rather than promoting and serving an educated citizenry, “yellow journalism” was a form of political speech, rather than an attempt to shed light on the events of the day. Thus, it can be said that the debate over whether journalism is a tool to influence or to inform citizens is not necessarily a product of the Internet age.
