Transcript of Enviromental & Sustainability

Double click anywhere & add an idea Piracy is basically people copying other people’s software or hardware. This creates a cheaper version of the original, profiting the ‘pirates’. The companies who made the original could go bust if a vast amount of copies are made. Piracy Emerging Technology This is good because it means that technology that's previously did not work together now can. For instance a printer and scanner were separate, now you can buy them together. This saves money instead of having to buy two different items. The same has also been seen with hardware in computers, making the RAM work better with a CPU to run faster and quicker. Bug Fixes These help to repair “holes” in your computers security. They repair any holes that might appear stopping viruses, hackers and other outside interference from corrupting your computer. The more Fixes you have they quicker they detect holes and repair them. Price Affordability The cost of computer goods would determine how well the company would profit in income. If an item is expensive people won’t buy it, making the mass made item a waste. If it is cheap to buy, customers will buy it more often making good use of it rather than wasting it. Good Protection Good protection means your computer is safe from outside influence. Outside influence is majoritly known as ‘Hackers’. Hackers will hack into your computer and take personal details about you, possibly making a clone of you stealing money. They may also upload a virus onto your computer to either control it from an outside source or infect your entire computer. If it is protected outside sources cannot interfere with you or the computer. Environmental Sustainability When not using an electrical item for a long period of time it should be switched off. When it is switched off it uses no electricity or power, instead saving it because it is not in use. It is the main way in which people waste power due to having everyday household items being left on, for instance a TV with the red light still on, computer/laptop and other electrical using items that we do not realise. Switch off when not in use Packaging Packaging is a major environmental hazard. Everything to do with computers comes in packaging, sometimes it is too big and a waste of material. When the equipment has been taken out, the majority of people just throw it away instead of re-using it or recycling it. Throwing it away ads to landfills and decays the surrounding area. Scientists say that plastic can take years to decompose; this is very bad considering a lot of computer items come in plastic packaging or have some sort of packaging with it. By recycling and cutting down on useless material, you can save more of the environment by not killing it with wasteful containers. Email Email is a free means of communication. Not only is it free but it does no harm to the environment because it sakes seconds to send and receive, also you don’t need to worry about delivery men, petrol in a vehicle to deliver the email or wasted material like an envelope. Emails are just a read, reply and delete system that does not affect the surrounding area in anyway. Today though, companies still prefer to use letter to send to customers trying to look professional. This only wastes paper due to much of it getting put into the bin after it is read. Power Saving This is a function on all new computer systems, mainly laptops, to help save power. By using less power it saves on the excess of power, filtering it. With the power saver option on performance is not as noticeably high, but it will save on power. This in turns saves the user or company money on electric bills, withdraws less power from electricity stations. The power saving will use less giving back electricity to power lines due to a small but suffice amount needed. Price Affordability The cost of computer goods would determine how well the company would profit in income. If an item is expensive people won’t buy it, making the mass made item a waste. If it is cheap to buy, customers will buy it more often making good use of it rather than wasting it. By Kraig Wilson
