Reaching IT to Rural India The past decade has witnessed a phenomenal growth in the Indian Economy primarily fuelled by the service sector (48% of the GDP). The main contributor to this service sector has been the Information Technology Industry that earns about US $8 billion from exports. Hence it comes as no surprise that India is being hailed as the new IT Powerhouse. Having said that, it becomes interesting to study the contribution of this growth engine in the lives of about 70% of the 1 bi
Technology It is a very busy world out there in which we live in. With so many different things to do and different paths to go on, it is often overwhelming to pick and choose what to experience. Technology brings more to our doorsteps then can be imagined and pop culture is changing every day. But we have choices, right? Horkheimer and Adorno charge that we in fact do not and the effects of the culture-driven industry are more damaging than we think. Through fragmentation, dependence on technol
The Elements of Commerce When you get down to the actual elements of commerce and commercial transactions, things get slightly more complicated because you have to deal with the details. However, these details boil down to a finite number of steps. The following list highlights all of the elements of a typical commerce activity. In this case, the activity is the sale of some product by a retailer to a customer: o If you would like to sell something to a customer, at the very core of the matter i
Trends in Computing Computer Skills June 8, 2004 In the 1960\'s, the use of main frame computers became widespread in many companies. To access vast amounts of stored information, these companies started to use computer programs like COBOL and FORTRAN. Data accessibility and data sharing soon became an important feature because of the large amount of information required by different departments within certain companies. With this system, each application owns its own data files. The problems th

The A-Team Demystifying The A-Team Formula: an Examination of Character Personalities and Old Genres "In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn\'t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team." Most everyone who has
The History of Kenworth Motor Truck Company During the time that brought dramatic change to the Northwest as Model Ts began challenging the horse and carriage in the transportation race, a Seattle businessman Edgar Worthington was managing his mother’s building, which was a car and truck dealership at the time. Edgar had a very special interest in the Gerlinger Motor Car Company, watching as they worked, sold, and fixed cars and trucks. He never had any clue that someday it would be his. The fir

Generation X We are the target group for almost every advertising agency in America. We are the group of people who have been labeled as Generation X. Every product that is made is pushed in our faces and we are told that since we are a part of this Generation we must all need this product or want this product. One major problem with this Generation X labeling is that no one is completely sure about who is and who is not a part of the Generation. Another problem is that we are all supposed to be

Gender There definitely seems to be a "science" to displaying merchandise to target one gender or the other. There also seems to be a science in "drawing you in." For instance, the toy store was a store for both boys and girls. At the front of the store to get the children’s attention were items for both little boys and girls. Not only was the usual attention getters stores use to attract adult customers, this store also had to get the attention of both genders of the children. Besides being pil
Alcohol Target Market Emphasis Vs. The Right to Advertise Alcohol. It’s supposed to be meant for adults over the age of 21, but whom is it targeted towards in advertisement?

Why People Buy In reading Why People Buy, by John O’Shaughnessy, I found this book to be enlightening about consumers’ behavior, their buying habits, persuasion techniques used in the marketplace, and the role ethics plays behind the scenes of every purchase. Understanding these issues, as well as the pressures, influences, and decisions made by consumers, are what makes this book so interesting. O’Shaughnessy’s credibility was very evident from the beginning of his book. He is a Professor of Bu

The Economic Emergence of China, Japan and Vietnam World War 2 in the mid-90\'s drew a hard blow and left a serious and lasting effect to many Asian countries.

Thus, the global market cannot deny a place for these \'Asian Dragons\', because these countries are growing at a tremendous pace to the extent of being capable in emerging as global
Advertising Television advertising is a business which touches nearly every man, woman and child in America. It has been said that “American advertising leads the world not only in volume of business, but in the complexity of its organization and of its procedures.” (DeWitt) Nearly all of us have a favorite commercial, whether it be the newest Miller Lite commercial, or an old McDonald’s commercial from years ago. But before any commercial can be brought to your television over the airwaves, a l
Coca-Cola and its Evolution The Coca-Cola company started out as an insignificant one man business and over the last one hundred and ten years it has grown into one of the largest companies in the world. The first operator of the company was Dr. John Pemberton and the current operator is Roberto Goizueta. Without societies help, Coca-Cola could not have become over a 50 billion dollar business. Coca-Cola was invented by Dr. John Pemberton, an Atlanta pharmacist. He concocted the formula in a thr
The Internet, Pornography, and Children Why should anyone be concerned about pornography on the Internet? After all, this is a free country and everyone should have access to anything they want, right? This position would be true if only adults used the Internet; it can not be true when children also use the Internet. Most people would agree that children should not have access to Internet sites that are considered pornographic. Does that mean that children should not be allowed Internet access
Thomas Edison Thomas Edison, without the benefit of a formal education, became one of Americas best known inventors.

The meals would not exceed around fifteen dollars for

Direct-Mail Advertising As consumers, we are often bombarded by different types of advertisements each day. Whether it¹s by television, newspaper, or billboards, advertising has reached us one way or another. Yet, a majority of the ads that we encounter are often meaningless and uninteresting, because of the fact that these ads are meant to reach a certain target audience. This perception seems to change, however, when we look inside our mailboxes, pick-up our telephone, and even check our e-mai

Who was to know that my supervisor would eventually find this letter, which would lead to both the termination of my job and my fellow employee? Does this sound common? It

Violence on Television Freedom of speech is granted to United States citizens under the first amendment of the Constitution. Many people, however, seem to feel that this right is often exercised too freely on television. Whether this is true or not is a large controversy. Although most people believe in speaking their minds on television, it is also understood by most people that freedom of speech can be carried too far, which is kind of ironic because the constitution says that US Citizens can
Aunt Jemima’s Buttermilk Pancake Mix Quaker Oats could have clearly used a better approach in promoting their new buttermilk pancake mix. Their initial plan, to make customers send in three proofs of purchase from three different kinds of pancake mix, was utterly ludicrous. Who is going to buy six month’s worth of pancakes for a one dollar shaker? And on top of that, who is going to ruin that overabundance of pancake mix by ripping the tops of the boxes off, in order to send them in? Overall, it
What is Advertising? Advertising, according to Kleppner’s Advertising Procedure, is the process of disseminating information about a product, service, or an idea.

Economies of Ancient Civilizations Final Essay When looking at the different economic powers of the Minoan, Mycenaean, and Aztec empires it is easy to see that with all three the economy was highly thought of. The economy was basically used for trade both domestic and other societal uses. In the Mycenaean civilization episodic alliances among the citadels led to greater economic power. The civilization was located just to the northeast of Crete and to the south of Greece. With this excellent loc
