Korean Mobile Phone Industry - 499 words
Although the Korean economy has grown rapidly in recent years, while appearing to maintain sound macroeconomic fundamentals, it experienced a foreign exchange crisis at the end of 1997 in the wake of severe financial turbulence in several South-East Asian economies.

Cell Phone Phreaking - 877 words
Cellular Phreaking The cellular/mobile phone system is one that is perfectly set up to be exploited by phreaks with the proper knowledge and equipment. Thanks to deregulation, the regional BOC's (Bell Operating Companies) are scattered and do not communicate much with each other. Phreaks can take advantage of this by pretending to be mobile phone customers whose "home base" is a city served by a different BOC, known as a "roamer". Since it is impractical for each BOC to keep track of the customers of all the other BOC's, they will usually allow the customer to make the calls he wishes, often with a surcharge of some sort. The bill is then forwarded to the roamer's home BOC for collection. Ho ...

Advertisers Sell Images Not Products - 1,201 words

I (we) know that sugar cane, besides being subsidized, is more expensive than higher fructose, so even if bottlers decide not to use corn sweetener ...
