Back in the late 1970's, two projects began independently with the same goal in mind, which was to define a unifying standard for the architecture of networking. One was the ISO, (International Organization for Standardization), the other was the CCITT, (International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee), both of these organizations developed a document that defined similar network models. It was deployed widely as an instructional tool, the OSI Reference Model was intended to serve as the foundation for the establishment of a widely-adopted suite of protocols that would be used by international networks, which became the internet, called the OSI Protocol Suite. 3. What is the history of the TCP/IP model?
How Technology Affects the Society Jade Wallace English 1133 P05 Marine Ogbaa October 12, 2012 Technology keeps a large community more connected. We use technology everyday, even when we do no realize we are using it. Technology connects large communities by having many ways to contact people, get transportation and network.

Threat of New Entrants: (“The high quality labor intensive creative and technological excellence, was difficult to scale due to scarce talent in marketplace and conflicting client needs”, p.1, para 2). From the above statement, it would be fair to infer that in the digital marketing industry (particularly in case of HUGE), economies of scale is nonexistent. Hence, there is no cost advantage that comes with volume. There are however a few barriers to entry for new entrants because of the “network effects”. (“JetBlue put Huge on the map and increased its credibility as a partner for larger business issues”, p.6, para 3).
However, due to the higher prices, there is a certain segment to which these brands can appeal to – this strengthens the power of the buyers. Because of the high competition and many brands within the industry – there are low switching costs for the buyer. This is complemented by online shopping, which means that the retailers do not even need to be physically in the same place. This lowers the switching costs for the buyer and increases their power. The rise of the ethical social consumer and the information availability that came with the internet made the buyer demanding and less likely to develop loyalty towards a brand – this increases their power.
The first red flag would be that they are competing with huge computer companies that can have anything a customer needs readily available to ship. While Keystone seems to be doing a great job keeping up with the demand of certain products, they are forced to charge the customers more money for those products. While this has not currently affected them, it could in the future and could eventually be a problem for them. Another thing is that although business is booming right now, computers businesses do very well when the economic conditions are good. There are reports that say the economy will grow over the next few years (2010), but there is a possibility that they could be wrong and that won’t happen.
