Viewing films in this way can be quicker and cheaper than going to the cinema to watch the films, and the viewing experience is more comfortable as you are watching the films in your own home. Watching films in the cinema gives you a limited choice of films to watch, but using an internet service gives the viewer a wider selection of films. Another way technology has changed the way we experience films is DVDs, videos and Blu Rays. With these, people can watch their films whenever they choose to, and are sometimes cheaper than going to see a film at the cinema. There has been an increase in people buying and renting Blu-Ray.
BTEC L3 ICT -Unit 1- Task 3 (P5) Word possessing documents A word processed document is a document that consisted mainly of text and was processed on a computer the advantages are that you can easily fix a spelling mistake or a typo and it is also much easier to notice you can and you don’t have to re write the hole document out again to fix the mistake it is also good as you can add pictures in easily. Furthermore you can have many copies without re writing them out over and over again. However if there is a power cut you can lose all unsaved data this means that you have to do it all over again. This can prove problems to employers as they can’t see how well the employee’s hand writing and spelling is. Presentations Like the word processing documents you will be able to spot and correct spelling and punctuation results quicker also you can animate an image while you explain a point but the disadvantage is that you have to have a large room with a large screen so people can see you giving the presentation however this problem can be partially solved with video calling.
NTFS file system is used to support larger hard drives and is better for security. You’re able to encrypt and permissions that restrict access by unauthorized users. FAT 32 system files lack the security that NFTS provides. FAT32 allows any user that accesses the machine to view any files without restrictions. FAT32 file systems have a limited amount of disk size.
For example, using Photoshop to change the appearance of someone’s body in a photograph, using scale could be an example of manipulation. Other techniques that could be considered are slow shutter speed to create a sense of movement from the body, this would then show some change in the body and distort it. The use of colour is another main technique that is often used for manipulation for example; using an unnatural body colour to change someone’s appearance either by Photoshop or physically
The internet is much quicker than any other form of communication and is also very cheap. For example e-mails are completely free to use and are delivered to the recipient (however far away) in a matter of seconds. Also the developments in software like Skype have allowed people to have face to face conversations when they are miles away from each other. This could be very important for TNC’s trying to tell their bosses in HQ about the factory and its productivity. They could just show them around using Skype.
This means that the TNC can pay workers less, not worry about providing good working conditions. All of these factors greatly benefit TNCs because they can produce their products or components for a fraction of a price that they would have to pay in their country of origin. Another thing that has enabled companies to spread out over the globe is the fact that global communications and travel has improved. Emails make it much easier to communicate with colleagues in other countries and not have to worry about time differences. Satellite links have allowed people to have video meetings even if the people taking part are miles apart.
Cost savings can be computerized accounting programs reduce staff time doing accounts and reduce audit expenses as records are neat, up-to-date and accurate. This system allows them to record business transactions accurately and generate financial reports quickly for management review. However if Rumble carry less transactions this means they won’t need to have computerised accounting system because it is very expensive for them to use. In this case it is best for them to have manual accounting system because it is reliable, cheap and easy to use. They can easily do their transaction without problems.
Marketing expenditures could be more efficiently targeted on its regular customers and their need segments. Although it is not stated in the case, I strongly believe that Tesco also has benefited in having accurate information in real time stocks movements through this sophisticated data handling, which have big impact in supply chain management. The more effective supply chain, the more cost reduced, which means Tesco could compete with further price reduction and offering with products and services. Tesco's Clubcard IT system does not stop to that level only. To give more added value to its customers, Tesco integrates with several partners to provide another services such as telephone account and financial products.
The only thing costs of such a system would be the hardware and software needed. These would only be initial costs so in the long-term smart cards would actually save money in comparison to today's paper based system. The need to stay up to date with today's technology is becoming more and more demanding because there's a constant need to improve healthcare and technology is usually the catalyst to those requirements. One benefit of using a medical smart card system is that it reduces fraud considerably. This is because there is more security with such a system thanks to photo and online verifications.
