  1. Compare and contrast a cable modem service to DSL service
  • DSL receive data at the rate 1.5-10 Mbps and can send data at only 128kbps-1.5mbps, you can download 6 minute music video in only 11 minutes. The advantage of DSL is that it is always on and its transmission rate is relatively consistent.
  • Cable modem send data at rate 1.4Mbps-30Mbps, you can download 6 minute music video in only 2 minutes. The disadvantage of cabel modem is that you and your cable TV viewing neighbours are sharing the system and consequently, during the peek load times , your service may be slowed to the speed of a regular dial-up modem. Also using an internet connection that is always on-and that  , in the case of cable, you share with other people-invites outside interference with your computer.

  • Search hijackers

Stage 3
Knowledge in action
7.            Email and IM are ways of sending text messages back and forth to other people on the internet. They seem very similar : in both , you compose a message , and when it’s ready , you send it; and when someone else sends something to you, you receive it on your devices and can read it.
But in practice, email and IM can be surprisingly different; each has its own rhythm, its own strengths and weaknesses, its own sociology, its own etiquette. Instant messaging is like using the telephone, whereas email is more like corresponding by letter.
As you use email and IM during the course of the term, watch for differences between them. Which medium is more appropriate for which kinds of relationships and communications? Which medium is more stressful to use? Which takes more time? Which is more convenient for you? Which one is more useful for getting real work done? Which medium would you use if you knew that whatever you wrote was eventually going to be published in a book. If you were restricted to using only one of these communications methods. Which would it be?
Email is more formal than IM but it takes more time to sent, so I think email is better for formal conditions and relationships such as from employers to employee.
I think email is stressful to use , because we need to write it in formal language, and it take more time to send an email rather than IM.
About which one is more convenient for me is depend on the conditions and to whom my message will be sent. If my message is for my friends , I may use IM ,but if it is for my boss, or my lecturer , I would rather use Email, because email is more formal.
If I know that whatever I wrote will eventually going to be published in a book , and if I was restricted to using only one of these communications methods ,I would rather use email, because it s written in a formal language.
10. As we have discussed in this chapter, the internet is both goldmine and minefield. There are vast riches of information , entertainment, education, and communication to be found, but there are also snoopers, spam, spoofing, phishing, spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and key loggers. What should you do to avoid these threats?
To avoid spam, snoopers , spoofing , and phishing , just believe that everything in this world is not “FREE”. And to avoid spyware , adware , browser hijacker , and key logger is simple, be careful with “FREE download” , be sure to prepare your computer with antivirus , or antispyware before downloading.
