While this application has its benefits I am sure I also see several disadvantages to it. The major one being the fact of using a device while driving takes away from your awareness on the road. The application while I am skeptical on its real benefit it’s only on the Iphone which shows it’s not economical for those it may benefit the most. That is what I see wrong with most technological advances that they are for those that can afford them not for the majority of the population. I would even update my Iphone with this technology if I drove more just to see how well the application works on my
In a recent study by Dr. Vini Khurana (2008), says that the more you use a headset for your mobile device can cause brain cancer. With this information the reports have show that it can take up to ten years before the cancer will show but companies have been warned along with customers not to use the cell phone headsets due to all of the damage it causes with your nervous system. They have also found out in their study that the use of cell phone headsets is worse than smoking cigarettes (Lean, 2008). In the article done by Sue Kovach says that cell phones never went through any types of radiation test. Cell phones have been out since the 1980’s, and with all of the radiation they are producing there are over 2 billion users of mobile devices.
It has become hopeful that with such bans, new drivers and minors will put away cell phones and maintain their attention to the road. A new proposal for the US Government may make it illegal to talk or text on a cell phone will driving anywhere in the US. This proposal will include hands free phone operation, since the government concluded that any kind of distracted driving may lead to fatal consequences. From the cell phone provider standpoint,
Cell phone technology has grown tremendously within the last decade making it easier for one to communicate with others. Cell phones allow people to call, text, email, and use social networking from anywhere they please, but some people do not understand that there are certain times and places that cell phone use is inappropriate; For example, when driving. Using cell phones while driving has been proven to be dangerous. Even though many states have passed laws against cell phone use while driving, many still allow the use of hands-free cell phones/devices while behind the wheel. Using a hands-free cell phone/device is just as dangerous as using hand-held cell phone while driving.
In terms of its graphical and visual capabilities, the game looks simply photorealistic. In addition, video games also provide intriguing and exciting plots require problem-solving abilities and can improve a person's awareness. Some of the mental skills enhanced by video games include: following instructions, logically solving problems, hand-eye coordination, planning and resource management, tracking of multiple shifting variables and accuracy. These are only a few of many mental skills enhanced by video games according to cognitive researcher Daphne Bavalier and other authors specialising in raising a "smart" child. There are many benefits in playing video games, however, there are two that can be considered most beneficial when playing video games: they reduce stress and they promote exercise on the mind.
For the record World of Apple has it from very good sources that the name iPhone 4S is a complete falsehood. What Whitmore fails to effectively do in his report to analysts is outline how Apple would trim such massive amounts off the price of the iPhone without “negatively impacting profitability”. The second source of this rumour is Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty. Katy never actually explicitly pointed towards two new iPhones but in her report in relation to recent meetings with unnamed individuals the analyst did say Apple is forecasting a large iPhone unit increase in 2012 “on the back of new products and potentially lower price points.” So what merits does a second, lower cost iPhone have for Apple? The answer is obvious, it has every benefit but just because that is the case it doesn’t mean Apple is willing or preparing to
Characteristics of world-class service to Apple Willingness to listen to customers In a rare example of Apple anticipating a negative customer reaction in advance, the company treated the release of iMovie ’08 ,the previous version of iMovie HD 6 was left untouched. Additionally, the company offered iMovie HD 6 as a free download for anyone who purchased iMovie ’08.Recognizing that its “improved” version of iMovie wouldn’t suit everyone, Apple in this case pre listened to its customers, making iMovie 6 HD freely available up until the release of iMovie ’09—an update that restored many of the HD 6 features that the ’08 edition lacked. Apple’s precognition machine was in full effect; the company listened to its customers before they even had the chance to complain. Continuous process development & Consistency of service responsiveness The Apple Store is always seeking to improve the experience because “feedback” is a critical component of the brand. I’ve talked to Apple Store salespeople (specialists) who say they get feedback every day from their managers even though they have been on the job for months.The feedback is always empowering and positive and it’s always aimed at helping salespeople understand the conversation they just had with a customer and how to improve the conversation next time.
No matter how careful a driver you may be, when you do something else while driving, whether its drinking coffee, listening to music, scanning the GPS, or making a phone call, you endanger the people around you, and including yourself, because you are distracted from your driving. An accident needs only a couple microseconds to occur. Even though no state can ban people for changing radio stations or applying makeup while driving, all states can, and should, make it illegal to drive while talking on a cellular phone. Since the rise of popularity of cellphones in the past years, the number of accidents caused by people talking on their mobile devices has also increased. Whether they were in an argument, receiving a message, or simply dialing a number, they were momentarily distracted from the task of driving.
These effects range widely from helping in elderly brain enhancements, to helping teenager control their emotions. Although video games do contain some negative effects that can be serious if video games are misused, the positive effects show people that whenever kids, teenagers, or even adults play video games, the consequences are not always black and white. Video games are mostly beneficial to people because they have cognitive benefits, they help people control their emotions, and they help people become more social. Video games are able to provide many benefits to the minds of children, teens, and even adults in terms of improving essential motor functions such as memorization and multitasking, and even catching and throwing. Many studies have been carried out to prove these assumptions.
Therefore, many countries today have prohibited certain use of hand-held devices while driving because of the personal safety and the safety of others, dangers associated, and causes distractions which could lead to death. Just like you put yourself and the safety of others while driving drunk, the impairment is very similar to when using a cell phone when driving. This does not mean people should start drunk driving but indeed means that driving while using the cell phone is just as bad or even worse than drunk driving which is unacceptable. Both hand-held and hands-free cell phones impair driving, with no significant difference in the degree of impairment. Banning hand-held devices will not necessarily improve our safety and of others if drivers simply switch to hands free phones.
