It gives people convenient access to relevant information stored on powerful networks, allowing them to easily take action anywhere, anytime.
These new intelligent appliances or “smart devices” are embedded (ghi vào) with microprocessors that allow users to plug into intelligent networks and gain direct, simple, and secure access to both relevant information and services. These devices are as simple to use as calculators, telephone or kitchen toasters.
