    What did the study find? How many people were in the study and from where did these people originate? Are there any conflicting studies?

    There was a study done to see how many people use their smartphone while watching television. In the US there are 40% who do so on a daily basis, compared to as 12% of tablet users and 13% of smartphone owners say they have never done so. 45% search unrelated info on the web, 42% are checking social networking sites, and fewer than 20% are searching related ads they've seen on TV. While, I just researched some more related to this topic, I came to realize this results are correct and accurate.

India Is Outsourcing … to the U.S.? | Current Events | Living Frugally | Lear... - 0 views

  • call-center workers. Initial indignation morphed into
  • reluctant acceptance, and outsourcing to India has
  • become such a part of our culture that it inspire
  • In a move that signifies one of the quirkier things happening to the global economy, outsourcing companies in India (where more than a third of the country lives on $1.25 a day) are starting to open centers and hire employees in the
  • U.S. (where minimum wage is $7.25 an hour).
    • Salaries are rising 10% a year in India, so labor isn’t as cheap as it used to be.
    • “Near-sourcing” saves these firms the travel expenses of flying workers from India to the U.S. to meet their clients.
    • They gain efficiency by preventing mistakes that occur due to unfamiliarity with American culture.
    • The companies can access new markets, such as healthcare companies, government agencies, utility companies and defense contractors that don’t want sensitive data leaving the U.S.
    • Having bases around the world means they can do work around the clock.
  • This new trend is a positive sign in that it shows that American workers still have skills that Indian workers can’t match—and that Indian companies are willing to pay extra for it. The firms are supplying good jobs now, and plan to expand their U.S. outposts, creating even more opportunities in the future

  • Gone are the days when banks used to conduct their business before the lobbies closed at 3:30 in the afternoon. Today’s fast paced world coupled with a demanding market place a premium on 24/7 banking services. Banks that provide round-the-clock availability of services find it  more feasible to outsource part of the customer service rather than double the number of employees. Ninety percent of new banks choose to outsource and there is high likelihood of this figure increasing in the long-term
