The Benefits of Mobile Internet

One important global innovation is the birth of internet. Since then a lot of people had already relied on faster connectivity of the internet. From personal needs to financial transactions, everything now has the influence of internet. On that note, the world should be thankful with this kind of development in technology. It had made the lives of individuals easier and accessible. Most of all, it made possible all things that people knew would never happen.

Through the undying demand of people for technology to serve their needs, mobile phones were made with internet connection capacities. This was made possible because this compliments the lifestyle of a busy individual who relies on his/her phone and internet connection during day to day interactions.

The major benefit of mobile internet technology has been very much observed on how it affected the individual’s communication and transportation affairs.

In terms of communication, it proved that it can transcend through time and space. The existence of social networking sites like Facebook and twitter had made it convenient for people of different places to share information and interact through Facebook chat. With mobile internet, it doesn’t stop you from being visible all the time. Now that you can access these sites on your phones, you have the chance to give live updates to your friends, upload photos straight from your phone and give them live feedbacks anytime and anywhere.

Mobile internet helps make businessmen always on the go. With your internet connected phone, you can open your emails and check your accounts instantly. You don’t have to carry with you portable laptops because now, you can already do transactions in your phone. You don’t underestimate the power of your mobile phone. Aside from checking mails, you can also use it to check your other accounts like bank transactions. Know the latest news through live streaming; learn the latest fad through lifestyle sites. All that and more with just the power of your fingertips.

In terms of transportation, mobile internet keeps track of directions. When scheduled for a flight, you can use your phone to check the airline sites and avail of the cheapest promo and you can book them right away. There’s no need to go to the airport. All there is to do is use your phone. When driving to your next destination, you will never be lost when you access the internet and use Google maps. Even if you’re not familiar with the place, it can get you there in no time with no other device but your phone.

Emerging Trend of Ambient Video Internet Technology

A new internet technology on the rise is called Ambient Video. Just as the word “ambient” means, this technology has the context of being totally surrounding and encircling. With the concept based on large-format projector based visualization technologies, people will experience a strong sense of constant immersion at remote sites throughout the world and will encircle people all around the walls in their office.

The Impact of Ambient Video on People

Ambient Video is a new, emerging trend in internet video technology. With the goal of Ambient Video being to provide the sense of immersion between the participants interacting with one another from remote locations, more large scale, high-resolution display devices will have to be made available for placement in homes and offices with access to the internet. This new technology will ultimately transform the video experience of people. It presents an entirely new receptive condition for people as they live their daily lives. For example, people today typically only view cinematic size projections at the movie theater, New York Times Square, a large church, or athletic stadium. Thus, Ambient Video will make cinematic size viewing a commonplace, domestic experience for people every day of their lives.

Ambient Video in Relation to the Art of Cinema

Ambient Video will most likely attempt to replicate or serve as an extension of the aesthetics of cinema. It will certainly call for a more pictorial visual style and lead to more utilization of cinematic techniques (e.g., split screen, visual layering, high tech transitions, etc.). In addition, this new visualization technique will most likely become useful to people when it is recognized as a new form of electronic cinema.

Is Ambient Video an Experience in the “Foreground” or “Background” Perception of the Viewing Audience?

The question of how Ambient Video relates to the constant immersion visualization technique is still under strong debate. For example, when people go to the movie theater in a darkened room, the moving pictures are in the foreground of our cinematic experience. In the seclusion of a darkened theater, the viewing audience loses itself and becomes immersed in the world of the film. Because of this insulation from the real world, the viewing audience responds to the moving pictures on the “big screen” as if they were actually human. People display their inner feelings and emotions as they watch a movie. They cry and laugh as well as exhibit sadness, happiness, fear, and even get angry as they watch films. As a result, the moving pictures and accompanying sounds of a motion picture place heartrending images in people’s minds and enter closely into our very being. However, in contrast with the “foreground” cinematic experience, the commonplace television in our homes typically plays in the “background” (not the “foreground”) of our living rooms. Thus, a quick glance, a more concentrated look, or even a deeper immersion are all factors to consider in determining whether or not Ambient Video will ultimately be a “foreground” or “background” experience for people.

Embracing Ambient Video Technology at the Consumer and/or Prosumer Levels

Many future trend experts believe that organizational leadership will embrace a consumer level application of Ambient Video by make moving images appear as a living painting with high cinematic quality providing a relaxing, visual experience. In the future, professional applications of Ambient Video will most likely take place when technology is available to tie together numerous remote locations with superior quality video in life size projection. At an instant, people will be able to communicate with each other just as if they were in the same room together, but actually are thousands of miles apart. Interaction with participants at remote sites could be prompted by a visual or audio cue; and during periods of non-interaction, a pleasing visual aesthetic will be projected on the walls encircling the people in the office or other similar location. Prosumer application of Ambient Video will most likely involve the ability to seduce a person’s attention rather than a commanding of it. Thus, prosumer level investment in Ambient Video will depend on the ability of this technology to allure, win over, and attract people’s attention in the internet video world of tomorrow.

Internet Technology Offers Golden

For many Baby Boomers facing retirement, the future holds uncertainty and insecurity. However, for those who are looking to the Web for a way to positively impact their financial future, the rapid transformation of internet technology offers a golden opportunity.

With all the doom and gloom about the bad economy, government spending, huge deficits, personal bankruptcies and home foreclosures, it is sometimes difficult to see the positive side of things. The news media certainly doesn’t want to highlight it, and people by nature seem to prefer to focus on the bad things that are happening to them, rather than appreciate the goods things and look forward to the future with anticipation.

Technology is advancing so rapidly that those who are not involved directly with the internet are unaware of the vast opportunities available to anyone willing to dive in and learn some new skills. Advancements in web technology like Web 3.0 – immersion into 3D websites and virtual three-dimensional conferencing, and Web 4.0 – intelligent electronic assistants making decisions for us based on information gathered from the history of our online choices, are already well underway.

Not only will the internet offer retiring Baby Boomers an opportunity to create wealth, it will offer them an opportunity to undertake challenging and meaningful entrepreneurial activities – something that was not readily available in the brick-and-mortar world of jobs and employment. Retirees will look forward to embarking on a new journey beyond retirement. They will retire to something innovative and exciting, not from something that, for many, had become nothing more than a “comfort zone.”

Technology-driven change will enhance Baby Boomers dreams of retirement. The intelligent electronic assistants of Web 4.0 will render decision-making easier. Our “e-agent” will remember past choices that we may have forgotten, preventing us from making the same mistake over again (easier to do after a few too many birthdays). He (or she – our choice), will intuitively remind us of the things we want to accomplish, and help us stay on track. If we make plans to go shopping on our exercise day, your e-agent will gently remind us of our New Year’s resolution.

Smart-technology will increasingly anticipate our problems before they become problems. Our “low fuel” light has saved hours of wasted time. Our GPS has told us about the car wreck that is going to slow down our trip to the office, or where we can get off the freeway to get a cup of coffee. That’s old technology. With smart-technology, not only will our cell phone tell us where to go to get our favorite brand of coffee, but our coffee will be waiting for us when we get there, prepared just the way we like it (thanks to our e-agent).

Anyone willing to embrace the magnitude of the internet, and incorporate its resources into their plans for the future, will go places that aren’t even on the cybermap yet. Simply providing people with knowledge and information about potential web-based opportunities can be the foundation of a profitable online business. Show people how to do something they currently can’t do, but would like to if they knew how, and you will be in business.
