An initiative for including these issues into the IPR is needed for the advancement of e-commerce. v. The Evidence Law should be revised to recognize the validity of a digital signature.

...1. What is the ‘8-second rule’ of the Internet and why is it important to m-commerce technology? We can define the 8-second rule as an old rule of the Internet. Also, it is the rough unit of measure of the performance of a web server. In a fact, if the loading time of a web page exceeded eight seconds, Internet users would not wait any longer while Internet users have reliable Internet connections, which allow them to upload almost all websites in less than a second. M-commerce is the ability to conduct a transaction while using a mobile. There are two frequent types of usage of the m-commerce .Firstly; a mobile user can buy something online from his mobile web connection.

Mobile Commerce and Its Applicability in Egypt

... factors and challenges and its applicability in Egypt. INTRODUCTION M -commerce is sometimes referred to as “mobile e-commerce because its transactions are basically electronic transactions, conducted using a mobile terminal and a wireless network. Mobile terminals include all portable devices such as mobile telephones and PDAs, as well as devices “mounted in the vehicles that are capable of accessing wireless net works” and perform m-commerce transactions. One definition of m-commerce describes it as "any transaction with a monetary value that is conducted via a mobile telecommunications network". Some definitions tend to ignore telematics, an important feature of m-commerce. These definitions concentrate on the appliance. For instance, "m-commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services, using wireless hand-held devices such as mobile telephones or personal data assistants (PDAs)". M-commerce is closely related to e-commerce, since the services offered in both variations are handled electronically by computer-mediated networks and accessible via telecommunication networks. The only difference is that in m-commerce the telecommunication networks are accessed through mobile electronic devices. There exist two different paradigms covering the relation- ship of m-commerce to e-commerce. The first paradigm classifies m-commerce simply as an extension of e-commerce; the second paradigm regards m-commerce as an independent business field and......

...Running Header: Mobile Commerce Mobile Commerce Management Information System December 3rd, 2013 Abstract The popularity of m-commerce devices, especially mobile phones among consumers high-lighted a new source of revenue for businesses. An industry review in mobile commerce found a variety of current trends and business models that will affect future strategic uses from a project management perspective. This paper explores m-commerce technology from a business perspective; how it is similar and differs from e-commerce technically; and tries identifying and exploring potential strategic uses for this new technology. Introduction The Global Mobile Commerce Forum, which came to include over 100 organisations, had its launch in London on 10 November 1997 and Kevin Duffey was elected as the Executive Chairman. Over 100 companies joined the mobile commerce forum within a year, many forming mobile commerce teams of their own, e.g. Mastercard and Motorola. Of these one hundred companies, the first two were Logica and Cellnet. Member organizations’ such as Nokia, Apple, Alcatel, and Vodafone began a series of trials and collaborations. Mobile commerce services were first delivered in 1997, when the first two mobile-phone enabled Coca Cola vending machines were installed in the Helsinki area in Finland. The machines accepted payment via SMS text messages. The first mobile phone-based banking service was launched in 1997 by Merita Bank of Finland, also using SMS. It is...

...Personality of Sir Fazle Abed Extraversion: Sir Fazle Abed is very friendly to his subordinates. Sir Abed was eloquent but soft-spoken, almost surprisingly so for the leader of such a large international development organization, illustrating the qualities of ‘quiet leadership.’ He was inspiring in his humility and down to earth nature, without a trace of arrogance in his demeanor. And perhaps most of all, he was open about the challenges BRAC has faced and continues to face over the years. An intern asked Sir Abed how he feels 40 years later, having built such a large and incredible organization. Did he feel proud of all he had achieved? His response was that BRAC still has a long ways to go in improving development in Bangladesh; their work is far from over. He was glad, certainly, to note BRAC’s progress – but recognized how much more there is to do in Bangladesh. He was focused on the future, on improving the organization, on pushing to be better. He realized that BRAC could not afford complacency. Agreeableness Fazle Abed sir is highly agreeable person because he meets with his subordinates when he is going to take any decision. These principles have helped BRAC constantly innovate and never take its progress for granted, and I believe that these leadership qualities are essential for the next generation of leaders in social justice, human rights, and development efforts. Conscientiousness He is very conscientious person. He is very responsible of his work. He...

The consequence can be anything from shutting down the business to losing huge amount of sales revenue. In Bangladesh series of Hacking incidents took place. Fortunately most of them are not e-commerce based sites. But stakeholders are very much concerned about the recent hacking and forgery of ATM cards. Culprits used their technological expertise to steal money from some of the bank accounts. Such incidents may cause severe financial loss along with customer dissatisfaction, which in turn hurts the ecommerce industry. Again, when a bank’s website is hacked, that may not always mean that the customer data is at risk, but it cause an impression that the bank is not capable of even safeguard it’s own website.
