  •   2   I. Summary  of  the  articles         During  the  semester,  the  subjects  of  our  articles  related  mainly  to  the  new   technologies,  Internet,  the  social  issues,  or  the  health  issues.  We’re  going  to  summarize   our  different  articles  by  topic.     New  Technologies         In  new  technologies,  we  found  articles  about  Facebook,  APPLE,  Google  Map,  and   Philips.  Actually,  it  all  deals  with  the  fact  that  they  wanted  to  launch  a  new  product.         Firstly  Facebook  announced  on  April  4th,  the  launching  of  a  new  smartphone   specifically  designed  to  access  to  the  social  network,  with  an  android  operating  system   and  manufactured  by  HTC.  Also  on  the  same  day,  Apple  annonced  that  they  would  like  to   launch  the  Iwatch,  which  is  a  smartphone  that  you  can  put  on  the  wrist  like  a   wristwatch.  In  partnership  precisely  with  Apple,  Philips  introduced  the  week  of  May  of   13rd,  an  intelligent  LED  light  bulb  that  could  transform  the  lighting  and  electronics   industry.  The  company  calls  its  smart  bulbs  the  Hue  1.1  with  several  hi-­‐tech  features  as   changing  our  light’s  color  to  let  us  know  when  it’s  raining,  or  randomly  changing  our   light’s  color  with  a  text  message  or  it  can  be  programmed  for  safety  and  security   purposes,  etc.         On  the  other  side,  Google  map  is  going  to  improve  their  application:  indeed,  more   we’ll  interact  with  the  map,  better  it  gets,  google  map  will  build  even  more  useful  map   with  recommendation  places  we’ll  might  enjoy,  with  also  a  new  3D  graphic  version  of   the  map.       Internet       Today,  our  generation  is  surrounded  with  the  new  technologies,  but  also  on  the   world  of  Internet  with  the  social  networks,  the  search  engines  like  Google,  Yahoo  and   others,  but  also  the  use  of  youtube,  etc.  That’s  why  some  of  our  articles  are  related  to   this  subject  like  Burger  King’s  tweeter  has  been  hacked,  yahoo  will  repurchase  Tumblr   for  1.1  billion  dollar,  Google  makes  “ungoogleable”  unusable  in  Sweeden,  and  a  man  won   $10000  with  Apple,  a  hack  attack  on  Yahoo  Japan,  a  17  years  old  boy  Nick  sold  his  app  to   Yahoo  for  £19m.         All  these  articles  are  different  from  each  other  but  they  all  refer  to  the  web,   indeed  it  deals  with  hacking  like  the  Twitter  Burger  king  has  been  hacked  by  the   anonymous  hacker  group,  they  changed  the  name  by  Mac  Donald’s,  Burger  King’s  main   competitor,  they  also  switched  the  profile  photo  to  the  McDonald’s  logo  etc,  or  in  the   same  way,  22  millions  login  names  may  have  been  stolen  during  a  hack  attack  on  Yahoo   Japan.       It  also  deals  with  earning  money  thanks  to  this  new  way  of  living,  actually  a  man   won  apple’s  app  jackpot  by  pressing  the  download  button  on  a  word  game  app  and  sent   Apple  over  the  50  billion  app  download  mark,  that’s  why  he  won  the  $10,000  prize  or   the  17  years  old  boy  Nick  d’Aloisio  sold  an  app  made  on  his  home  computer  for  £19m,  to  
  •   3   yahoo,  it  shows  how  the  democratisation  of  the  web  creates  an  unpredictable   marketplace.         Apart,  Yahoo  announced  that  they  repurchased  the  platform  of  blogs  Tumblr  for   1.1  billion  dollar  in  order  to  find  a  new  dash  in  the  social  networks,  and  thus  to  touch  the   new  generations  of  net  surfers.         In  this  topic,  we  have  also  an  uncommon  subject,  which  is  Google  didn’t  want  the   Swedes  introduce  the  word  “google”  into  their  list  of  new  words  as  they  believed  that   using  its  name  in  the  word  was  “unfair”  and  “ostensibly”.     Social  issues       In  this  part,  we’ve  got  articles  about:  Gerald  Babin  who  died  on  Koh-­‐Lanta,  a  10   years  old  boy  sentenced  up  to  5  ½  years  for  a  school  murder  plot,  Oscar  Pistorius,  gay   marriage  on  the  supreme  court,  explosions  on  the  Boston  Marathon,  Margaret   Thatcher’s  death.  All  these  articles  are  very  different  from  each  other,  some  are  about   murder,  others  death,  or  attack,  etc.  But  they  are  all  unexpected  events,  which  deal  with   the  society.         Indeed,  we  have  Oscar  Pistorius  who  were  accused  of  the  murder  of  his  girlfriend   Reeva  Steenkamp  the  14th  of  February,  on  the  same  subject  we  also  have  an  article  about   a  10  year  old  boy  from  Seattle  who  was  condemned  to  5  years  and  half  in  a  youthful   installation  of  detention  for  his  role  in  a  plot  to  violate  and  to  murder  a  girl  from  his   school  and  harming  other  children.         We  also  have  articles  about  Margaret  Thatcher  who  died  on  April  8th  in  London,   at  the  age  of  87  years  old  after  a  heart  attack.  Similarly,  Gerald  Gabin,  a  candidate  of  Koh-­‐ Lanta  who  died  on  March  28th  after  a  series  of  cardiac  arrests  during  his  transfer  toward   the  hospital.         In  the  social  issues,  we  also  deal  with  the  gay  marriage  as  it  is  an  important   debate  around  the  world,  our  article  was  about  the  Supreme  Court  taking  an  important   decision  about  the  same  sex-­‐marriage,  if  they  will  authorize  it  or  not.  In  this  topic,  we   also  talk  about  the  deadly  explosions,  which  hit  the  Boston  Marathon,  actually  at  least   three  people  died,  and  more  than  a  hundred  were  injured  with  this  attack.     Health  issues       Our  articles  deal  with  bird  flu  in  China  and  also  the  horsemeat’s  issue.  This  is  two   subjects  apart:  indeed  on  the  one  hand  we  have  a  virus  called  bird  flu  H7N9  which   spread  all  over  China  and  who  killed  5  people  since  the  beginning  of  the  year,  even  if  the   World  Health  Authorities  are  on  alert,  they  are  not  able  to  find  a  solution  to  put  an  end   to  it.  On  the  other  hand  we  have  the  scandal  over  beef  products  mixed  with  horse  meat   from  the  brand  Findus,  even  if  they  were  able  to  get  ride  of  the  products  which  contain   horse  meat,  their  brand  image  is  not  the  same  anymore,  it  will  be  hard  for  them  to   regain  the  consumer’s  trust.    
  •   4     These  two  articles  are  alike  as  they  deal  with  people’s  health  but  they  are  also   different  as  one  is  difficult  to  eradicate  whereas  the  other  is  a  mistake,  which  according   the  authorities  won’t  be  a  risk  for  the  human  health.       II. Own  Analysis       New  technologies           When  we  talk  about  new  technologies,  it’s  particularly  referred  to  the  new   methods  of  information  and  communication.  They  gather  the  innovations  carried  out  in   communication  or  in  the  information  processing  thanks  to  digital  and  the  new  way  of   telecommunication.  Their  impact  extends  on  multiple  fields,  in  particular  on  our  lifestyle   and  our  economy.         Indeed,  much  of  new  technologies  were  recently  elaborate  in  order  to  improve   the  communication,  as  with  Facebook,  which  wish  to  produce  a  smartphone  in  direct   link  with  the  social  network  which  wears  the  same  name,  or  Apple  and  its  Iwatch,  for   targeted  more  customers,  such  as  the  sportsmen  and  also  Google  map  and  the   improvement  of  its  application.         These  new  technologies  are  a  new  way  of  communication  but  also  for  some   companies,  to  remain  more  competitive  as  possible  by  carrying  out  the  most  original   projects  in  order  to  satisfying  the  people  followers  with  new  technologies.  Many  people   are  “addicts”  and  aren’t  able  to  live  without  it,  using  it  as  much  like  a  tool  in  their  private   life  as  in  their  professional  life.  It  became  a  lifestyle,  as  for  example  Philips  that  launches   its  intelligent  LED  light  bulb  for  the  users  to  have  the  possibility  to  colour  their   environment  according  to  their  moods  or  according  to  external  time.  These  innovations   are  indeed  carried  out  in  order  to  improve  the  lifestyle  of  people  who  nowadays  are   very  inclined  with  these  new  gadgets.         But  do  we  really  need  all  this?  Until  where  the  companies  are  they  ready  to  go?   Samsung  and  Apple  can’t  help  themselves  from  trying  to  exceed  the  other,  there  are   unceasingly  new  products  on  the  market,  certainly  our  market  of  consumption  allows  it,   but  aren’t  we  also  push  to  consume  by  these  constant  launches  of  products?     Some  products  are  very  clever  and  very  useful  for  the  daily  life  but  some  others,  not  so   much,  and  do  not  have  significant  interest  for  an  average  person.     Internet       Nowadays,  Internet  is  still  a  very  important  way  of  communication.  Before  that,  it   is  also  a  paramount  tool  in  search  of  knowing  and  information.  Indeed,  several  million   (or  billion)  people  per  day  use  Internet  in  order  to  find  information  for  a  duty,  to  find  a   work  or  to  know  tomorrow’s  weather.  Some  people,  like  Nick  D'  Aloisio,  17  years  old,   sold  his  application  more  than  £19m.  But  it  shows  that  the  democratisation  of  the  web  is   certain,  and  it  creates  a  new  marketplace.  It  is  a  world  where  business  cannot  rely  on   being  an  established  player,  and  where  anyone  can  make  a  mark  from  the  comfort  of  
  •   5   their  own  home  with  a  PC,  an  idea  and  a  basic  knowledge  of  how  to  remix  what  already   exists  on  the  web  to  create  something  new  and  exciting.         The  world  of  the  Internet  reverse  unfortunately  several  facets:     To  start,  Google  and  Yahoo  which  are  search  engines  known  in  the  whole  world,  have   main  missions  such  as  organizing  information  on  a  worldwide  scale  with  an  aim  of   making  them  available  and  useful  to  all.  Their  “super  power”  thus  enables  them  to   repurchase  as  many  sites  as  they  want,  such  as  Yahoo,  which  repurchased  Tumblr.   Google,  even  now  became  a  word  of  the  everyday  life,  even  if  the  Google  company   refused  it  categorically,  which  explained  its  disagreement  with  the  Language  Council  of   Sweden.  One  can  thus  wonder  which  is  the  real  impact  of  Internet  on  our  society  and  if   that  can  have  consequences  on  our  future  generations?         Internet  can  also  appear  very  dangerous.  Indeed,  the  social  networks,  for   example,  gather  many  personal  information  on  many  people  but  also  on  the  companies   and  even  multinationals  which  today  bet  more  and  more  on  the  communication  by  the   social  networks  and  Internet.  Besides,  Burger  King  has  been  the  victim  of  a  hack  on  its   tweeter  account  and  has  been  replaced  by  its  biggest  competitor:  Mac  Donald'  S.  Bad   publicity,  but  also  very  worrying  as  for  the  protection  of  information  and  the  accesses,   supposed  to  remain  confidential.  Another  example,  22  million  login  names  may  been   stolen  during  a  hack  attack  on  Yahoo  Japan,  being  personal  accounts  as  well.  We  can   wonder  if  Internet,  in  spite  of  its  good  sides,  isn’t  kind  of  dangerous  for  us?  It  seems  to   be  in  some  points,  but  according  to  us,  it  is  also  our  responsibility  to  be  aware  of  it  and   to  pay  attention  to  the  personal  information  we  put  on  the  social  networks  or  elsewhere   that  link  with  the  web.         It  is  also  true  that  many  CEO,  before  recruiting  somebody  for  a  job,  go  on  the   social  networks  in  order  to  get  to  know  much  more  about  his  future  employee.  Those   finding  themselves  well  disappointed  at  the  time  of  their  refusal.       Social  issues     This  topic  deals  with  deaths  or  attacks  by  weapons,  like  the  case  of  Oscar  Pistorius  or   the  10  years  old  boy  who  has  been  condemned  at  Seattle.  All  of  us  used  firearms,  which   had  caused  several  damage.  We  can  wonder  why  the  carrying  of  weapons  is  then   authorized?  Why  people  feel  obliged  to  have  weapons  to  feel  safe?  Most  of  the  time,  it   creates  problems;  it  is  besides  one  of  the  debates  that  preoccupied  the  United  States.         The  carrying  of  weapons  can  be  used  to  be  protected,  certainly,  but  most  of  time   it  is  a  huge  problem  to  regulate,  it  is  necessary  to  say  that  portfolios  armour-­‐plated  for   children  were  created.  This  authorization  causes  more  one  concern  for  the  population   that  a  relief.  Indeed,  even  if  most  people  thinks  that  it  necessary  to  get  ride  of  this  law   allowing  the  carrying  of  weapons,  it’s  impossible  to  do  it  as  it  is  written  in  the  American   constitution,  it  would  force  things  to  be  reconsider,  something  build  long  time  ago,   which  is  not  possible.  Moreover,  the  purchasing  of  weapons  is  an  important  resource  for   the  United  States,  which  they  won’t  be  able  to  live  without  in  this  time  of  crisis.   Although,  it  doesn’t  mean  we  agree  with  this  law,  at  the  contrary,  seeing  the  fact  that  it   causes  many  dramatics  accidents  that  could  have  been  avoid,  particularly  in  the  young  
  •   6   people  life.  Perhaps  the  United  States  does  not  feel  safe,  which  explain  this   authorization,  but  it  doesn’t  prevent  from  some  attacks  as  the  attack  with  the  marathon   of  Boston,  even  if  we  still  don’t  know  the  reason  as  of  these  attacks.         We  also  treated  the  Homosexual  marriage  in  the  United  States.  Indeed,  the   Supreme  Court  was  supposed  to  take  a  decision  about  the  authorization  of  homosexual   marriage  or  not.  According  to  us,  human,  men  or  women  are  free  and  equal,  they  can  be   with  whoever  they  want  and  thus  marry  with  the  person  of  their  choice,  that  it  is  same   sex  or  not.  The  marriage  is  an  act,  which  should  be  allowed  to  everyone,  it  is  a  symbol.  It   seems  normal  that  people,  who  are  in  love,  can  be  recognized  as  marrying  by  the  state  if   they  wish  it.       Health  issues       About  this  topic,  we’ve  got  only  two  articles,  which  deal  with  people’s  health.     Firstly,  the  bird  flu  in  China  also  known  as  the  H7N9,  14  cases  have  been  detected   including  5  deaths.  This  is  a  serious  health  problem  that  the  authorities  are  trying  to   solve.  According  to  us,  it's  great  that  Americans  have  offered  their  help;  it  shows  support   from  different  countries  of  the  world.  With  this  obvious  solidarity,  everything  could  be   solve  more  easily.         In  the  case  of  horsemeat  for  the  Findus  brand,  health  is  not  in  danger,  but  it  is  still   a  significant  error.  The  brand  of  this  company  takes  a  hit,  the  trust  of  the  consumers,   now,  isn’t  assured.  The  honesty  of  the  brand  is  in  doubt.  For  us,  they  will  struggle  to   regain  the  trust  they  used  to  have  and  their  sales  will  suffer  from  it.  Moreover,  when  we   consume  a  product,  to  know  the  contents  of  it,  we  refer  to  what  the  brand  assure  us,   how  can  we  consume  and  purchase  in  all  confidence  when  these  kind  of  things  happen?   Even  if,  it  seems  not  to  be  a  danger  for  this  case,  as  we’re  lucky,  it  could  be  worse,  and  as   the  brand  Findus  is  a  lot  consume,  it  would  have  been  a  huge  bad  impact.  It  shows  how  a   choice  from  a  big  brand  can  have  huge  consequences  on  a  large  numbers  of  people.
