Second Life (SL) is a privately owned, partly subscription-based 3-D virtual world, introduced in 2003 by West Coast company Linden Lab. Users can visit this virtual world almost as if it were a real place via their home computer and an internet connection. Visitors can explore, meet and communicate with other people, learn skills that expand their gaming activities and develop more sophisticated social skills.Technically, Second Life has the most in common in the gamming industry with Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games, or MMORPGs. It differs in a number of significant ways from the typical MMO, though, so the term “virtual world” is ultimately a more accurate description. Depending on whom you ask there are over 1.2 million members; 200,000 users in any given month who are online 40 hours per week on an average.Each player in Second Life creates an avatar, an onscreen representation that is their identity within the game world. Some players have multiple avatars; moreover, the appearance of an avatar can be easily changed. For these reasons, it’s a little difficult to determine how many active players there are.The game is played on servers operated by Linden Lab. According to their statistics, in mid October of 2006, the number of registered accounts in Second Life reached one million. By mid December, this number had doubled to two million – and the rapid growth continues. However, there is a difference between registered accounts and unique, returning users. Many accounts are created by users who log in once or a few times and never return, and some regular users have multiple active accounts.The User Generated World
The principal characteristic that differentiates Second Life from other MMOs is the fact that players create most of the online content, as opposed to landscapes and scenes provided by game developers. There is a 3D modeling tool in SL that allows any resident with the right skills to build virtual buildings, landscape, vehicles, furniture, and machines to use, trade, or sell.This creative process is a primary source of activity in the game. It is a variation of Sims-like activity with an injection of real life economics. Players can also upload unique graphics into the game, which, become the intellectual property of that player.Content generation and sale is a primary motivator of the game’s economy. Any resident can also make gestures from small animations and sounds from the standard library. Outside SL, users can use various graphics, animation, and sound tools to create more elaborate items, and upload them into the world. Once the creation is in the world of SL, the system makes efforts to help protect the intellectual property of the content creator. That creation can remain sole property of the developer, or transferred – or sold – to another player. Players who meet online can communicate via instant messaging, keeping their dialogue private.Not only are visual elements popular, but music has become a standard component of the SL experience. Players are uploading music that they have recorded or produced themselves, and have become a regular feature in the game in the form of scheduled events. Linden Lab took note of this phenomenon and developed a component in the game’s structure that provides for musicians to exhibit their own creations and use the site for outreach, much as bands have used YouTube for introduction of music videos.Virtual Economics, Real Estate, and Real Money
SL has its own economy, which is based on value in real dollars. Linden Dollars (L$), the game’s form of currency, are bought using real currency, based on a variable exchange rate. Players buy and sell hard-won assets developed in the game on eBay and other forums. Within the context of the game, items change hands with Linden dollars, which are acquired through various labors or through buying and selling.Real estate is an important commodity in SL. There is only so much of it, with new releases of landscape orchestrated periodically by Linden Lab. Once a player buys a piece of real estate, he can build on it and sell his improved property to another player. At least one player has become a real estate speculator, buying property as it becomes available and reselling it for a profit in real dollars. Linden also makes its cut in the real estate market, as there is a monthly fee for significant land ownership.SL has tapped into a similar desire to create that is found in the Sims, and it has proven to be a powerful force. Residents spend a quarter of the time they’re logged in, tens of thousands of hours a day, creating things that become part of the world, part of the landscape for everyone else. This includes everything from nightclubs to psychiatrists’ offices to Asian tea houses. Players with suitable software skills go to elaborate lengths to create environments, both as personal assets and as potential items for sale.You can join the game for no fee and go about playing – but you cannot own real estate. Beyond the entry level there is a tiered structure of fees; basic membership is $9.95 per month. Paid members receive a weekly stipend of Linden dollars to keep their activities afloat. In fact, people are spending $15 million in real dollars every month within the confines of the game. You can go to a virtual boutique for clothing, buy a home, a plot of land, and the items of value introduced into the game increases every month.Overlaps with the “First Life”
The budding opportunities presented by the MMO virtual environment have not bypassed professional advertisers and marketers. One enterprising individual has opened an agency in San Francisco offering to get real products introduced into SL, for exposure to the real consumers behind the avatars. Corporate America will continue to expand its presence in SL just as it has begun to recognize the power of YouTube and MySpace.It’s not only the marketing types that see opportunity here; software geeks are selling applets that allow couples to cuddle or dance. An accomplished player with knowledge of the environment can meet a newcomer online and teleport him or her to a boutique, a nightclub, a resort – the tools of socialization are streamlined somewhat by your digital composition. A team of Northwestern University students developed a virtual newscast that utilizes video clips from online sources and an avatar as the ‘talking head’ reading the voice over.One of the interesting challenges for Linden Lab is the growth of their phenomenal success. Because they utilize open source software and their online environment is constantly growing, the technological support must grow with it. The headaches in the shop have ranged from access problems to Linden $ banking difficulties to the continuing need for more bandwidth. But as the optimists say, these are Cadillac difficulties – nice problems to have.Many think that SL is one more step in the utilization of the Internet as a social networking tool that transcends mortal human socialization – both geographically and emotionally. With the ever-increasing interaction between Second Life and the one in which we all labor, in form of “virtual” press conferences”, product announcements, and more, SL offers not only purely escapist opportunities, but ways learn more about the people and world outside the game.
Just this week, Nokia released music phones into the market. With the ability to store approximately 100 albums, the consumer has access to all the music they could ever want to hear. Is this what the consumer wants from their cell phone?The fact is Nokia, with headquarters in Finland, is on top for a reason. They not only listen to what the consumer wants-they do something about it. They are the world’s leading cell phone manufacturer and if things continue the way they have been, they will continue on their roll. With a global market share of approximately 34% in the second quarter of 2006, they’re aiming higher by releasing new and improved models.Nokia’s new release, the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic holds about 1500 music tracks on their 2 GB microSD card and users can listen to their music while they use other features, like texting or the camera. If you want to listen to music in a public place, just plug in your headphones and if you prefer to listen to the music you’ve saved on a stereo, you can simply utilize their Nokia Wireless Audio Gateway AD-42W and you can play your music on any stereo. The Nokia 5300 also has other top quality functions such as a 1.3 mega pixel camera and high-resolution video ring tones. When it becomes available, the consumer should be able to purchase for just over $300.The Nokia 5300 XpressMusic, however, is not the only music phone they’ve come out with. The Nokia 5200 also gives the consumer top quality music functions and will cost the consumer approximately $250. The Nokia 3250 XpressMusic is of a different design, giving it a more unique look and consumers will still be able to hold about 1500 music tracks. More expensive, it will retail for approximately $500.Nokia has come a long way from when it came out with the first mobile phone in the 1970’s in the form of field radios for the Finnish Defense Forces. However, it wasn’t until the late 1980’s that the mobile phone technology allowed for international calls and the cell phone craze began. From then on, Nokia has remained on top, even with some difficulty it faced in 2004 when they failed to adapt to the market trends. While they have been behind others in new design innovation, Nokia is working to reestablish themselves among their competitors as has plans to retain their number one position in cell phone technology.While cell phone technology may one of Nokia’s top income producing departments, Nokia has their hands in many different things. Nokia Enterprise Solutions provides a wide variety of businesses with a vast array of business solutions. They also have divisions in multimedia and networking, putting them at the forefront in the technology of today.Nokia has the right outlook-they want to keep the consumer happy and the consumer continues to be the top priority for Nokia. Their continuous goals are to: create top of the line devices to be used by the consumer, include top quality Internet services as part of their offerings, provide enterprise solutions, build scale in networks, and expand their line of professional services. Their strategies for providing all of this-by prioritizing and investing in brand and design and commitment to the customer.The fact is Nokia top priorities are to be the number one provider of customer service and products. They don’t just want to sell the most cell phones or provide the most service, they want to make certain the consumers are happy with what they are receiving and they want return customers. They understand that in order to design the best-of-the-best, they need to understand what the consumer wants from a product or service. While they did have a small downfall in 2004 in following the direction they had set for themselves, they are back in line to provide the consumer the best possible experiences in today’s technology.In order to become the number one provider to the consumer, approximately 36 percent of Nokia’s workforce is in Research and Development, where they have centers located in 11 different countries and employ over 20,000 people. Their Research Centers are responsible for the increasing technological advances in the industry but also for adapting to changes in market trends and responding with knowledge and innovation.Second in line to Nokia is Motorola. Working Mother magazine has just announced this month that the company made the 2006 Working Mother 100 Best Company list. This means a lot to those all over the world and you’ll find that Motorola employees are happily trying to beat out Nokia’s number one position. They, too, have prioritized and are working diligently to beat out all their competitors in offering top quality products and services. Whether its Bluetooth products, home networking, dispatching products, or virtual private networks, Motorola will have it, as they are known for their vast array of services in the United States and many other countries.Motorola has just come out with several new products, including the Motorola SLVR. This sleek designed cell phone has many features that consumers demand and they are top quality. The Motorola SLVR is able to store music tracks and has Bluetooth technology. Again, however, Nokia has outdone Motorola with the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic. Not only does the Nokia 5300 XpressMusic allow for more music to be downloaded, it has several more advanced features and capabilities than the Motorola SLVR. Consumers know this but all it will take is one slip up for Nokia to lose its place.So what will it take for someone, such as Motorola to take over the number one position in cell phone technology? The most important thing that Nokia can do is stay on top of the market trends and listen to what features the consumer wants. Without their top-quality Research and Development, they will not be able to stay where they are and they must continue to excel in this area. Motorola, in fact, could easily overtake their position if Nokia makes another mistake like they did in 2004.

Web Hosts in China are facing rapid socio-economic changes since the past two decades. Some of the most recent social and technological developments in China have created a platform for individualization, diversification and privatization. In the present scenario, Chinese internet users are subject to government regulation and thought control. Hosting web servers in China will create a virtual outlet for the Chinese netizens that has the potentiality to challenge the absolute political power of the Chinese Political Party. Today, in China there is an individualization of life and on the other hand there is a consequent diversification of models for individualization.Some of the latest developments in China point towards privatization. Web hosting in China can be used as a platform that can be accessed in an individualized private setting. In the 1990’s, very few netizens in the modern metropolis owned web servers in China; and it was constantly scanned by technical experts and political leaders. But, today after almost a decade, the netizens have enough control and hosting web servers has become a private matter. In this way, the Chinese internet revolution has paved the way for a private niche on the internet.Chinese internet users can host web servers in china and create their own private spaces for communication around the globe. This opportunity will create space for the Chinese internet users, thus bridging the communication gap at the global front. In the early part of 2009, the number of Chinese internet users reached the 338 million mark with a penetration rate of 25.5%. When venturing into the web hosting arena in china, one may require a good domain name, hosting platform, domain registrar, a web hosting client management and billing system, payment gateway and an SSL reseller provider.According to statistical reports, the number of Chinese domain names and Chinese websites are acquired by CNNIC through the automatic search channel, while on the other hand there are several Chinese Generic Top Level Domain registration units that have been provided by the top level domain registration units available in China. While web hosting, it is essential to take into consideration, issues faced by the Chinese net users regarding network security. It is important to install highly sophisticated security software that will guarantee security and encryption of national network and information and at the same time, it should also protect the Chinese netizens by safeguarding their information and ensuring transaction security. This is the right time to host your own web server in China where the netizens are breaking away from control and advancing towards the democratization of the World Wide Web, focusing on the ecommerce sector.
