This text shows "the big picture," covering the whole range of information technologies: sensing devices, processors, display, and communications. In place of the "computer in the box" approach, this text focuses on issues and conflicts. It includes material on fax, modems, networks, remote controls, robotics, expert systems, pollution and traffic controls, and the history of expression as well as cutting-edge information on virtual reality, virtual offices and virtual corporations. The volume offers such features as: examples citing the experience of more than 200 corporations and organizations provide a real-world orientation; four themes - knowledge, organization, society, and careers - appear in each chapter via boxes and critical-thinking questions; separate boxed sections dealing with ethical dilemmas and controversies; and skills development boxes at the end of alternate chapters, focusing on reading, writing and presenting resumes, speeches and reports.
