Compare and contast RFID tags and bar codes
Radio frequency id technology
Can read rdif tags from a greater distance
Don’t need to be put in a line of sight with the scanner
Can be read at faster rate than bar codes
Contain high levels of security
Traditional visual representation of data.
Much smaller and lighter than RFID tags therefore easier to use
Work with the same accuracy
Key difference is bar codes are the traditional id technology and RDIF tags are the new modern technology
1. How does globalisation 3.0 differ from 1.0 and 2.0
Globalisation 3.0 is the globalization of the individual vs 1.0 which was globalization of the countries in the world and…show more content… Moores Law
The number of transistors per square inch on an integrated chip doubles every 18 months
Observation that over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a integrated chip has doubled every 2 years.
Consequences of Moore’s law
1 Because of Moore law the ratio of price to performance of computers has fallen. For example the price of the standard computing device has fallen from around $4000 to something close to 1c for the same processor.
2 Because of Moore’s law the cost of data communication and data storage is essentially 0. Because there is basically no price on this technology there are wasteful and harmful aspects of business applications being developed then deemed useless and wasted.

Information is the transfers of wisdom – knowledge – information – data
Compare and contrast data, information and knowledge:
All three terms are similar yet have different meanings. Knowledge is what we know. It cannot be stored anywhere other than the brain.
Data is facts of the world. For example statistical facts on yourself – your height, weight, hair and eye colour. All of these facts are data. Data is perceived through our senses and then the brain can process it into knowledge.
Information allows us to expand our knowledge beyond our range of sense. We
