Chapter 8 of the textbook discusses several topics related
to "consumer communications" that we
didn't discuss in class. These include:
Choose some topic related to consumer communications.
Find at least two articles in the
popular press and at least two Internet pages that discuss that topic.
Write a brief report on the topic; however, don't turn in your report.
Instead save it on the Internet in HTML
format at the following URL:
- cell telephones
- GPS receivers
By the way, it never hurts to have a few images on an Internet page.
If you don't care to HTML in pico,
WordPerfect 8, which is installed in the Karpen hall labs,
will transform a WordPerfect document into HTML.
