I just realised. One good thing about procrastination (what? there's something good about it?) is that it makes you more productive. It does. In order to procrastinate on doing something, I find myself doing something else that I'd been procrastinating on doing in order to procrastinate on doing the something that I'm procrastinating on doing.

Yeahhh I didn't understand that either.

Basically, to procrastinate on A, I do B.


but not when A is due the next day.

In my case right now, A is my homework that I put on hold since Fame Up! at Dewan Budaya started. B is blogging. :DDD

My nuffnang is stuck at 3 ringgit.

My blog posts are so unstructured.

Ahh. ICT exam tomorrow. I shall do notes here because my powerpoint and word aren't working because I don't have some product key to confirm it so they won't let me do anything on it. D:

So I found this ICT for SPM syllabus thingy online. It's basically something all the teachers have as a guideline to teach us. Pretty sweet. Since we have no idea what to study for ICT, having no official textbook or proper notes.

First off. Define ICT.

This is the definition given by my teacher.

ICT (Information Communications Technology) is the technology required for information processing, in particular, the use of electronic computers, communication devices and software applications to convert, store, protect, process, transmit and retrieve information from anywhere, anytime.

and thennn. Describe the brief evolution of computers

from there,

In the evolution of computers their first generation was characterized by the use of vacuum tubes. These computers were expensive and bulky. They used machine language for computing and could solve just one problem at a time. They did not support multitasking.

In the 1960s, transistor based computers replaced vacuum tubes. Transistors made computers smaller and cheaper. They made computers energy efficient. But transistors were responsible for the emission of large amounts of heat from the computer. Due to this computers were subject to damage. The use of transistors marked the second generation of computers. Computers belonging to this generation used punched cards for input. They used assembly language.

The use of Integrated circuits ushered in the third generation of computers. Small transistors placed on silicon chips, called semi conductors. This increased the speed and efficiency of computers. Operating systems were the human interface to computing operations and keyboards and monitors became the input-output devices.

Thousands of integrated circuits placed onto a silicon chip made up a microprocessor. Introduction of microprocessors was the hallmark of fourth generation computers.

The fifth generation computers are under development. They are going to be based on principles of artificial intelligence and natural language recognition. Developers are aiming at computers capable of organizing themselves. The evolution of computers continues.

1.1.2 ICT In Everyday Life: Education, Banking, Industry and Commerce List the usage of ICT in everyday life.


1. Education
- To find useful info. (internet)
- E-learning
- To manage books (library automation system)

2. Banking
- To withdraw or transfer money. (using ATM machine)
- Online banking. (eg: online services such as money transfer and paying bills online ( )

3. Industry
- Automobile manufacturing industry using robotic facilities.
- Aerospace research using super computers. (eg: NASA)

4. Commerce
- E-commerce. To buy and sell things on the Internet. (through online payment)
- Advertising.
- For (dunnowhatting) the stock market. (KLSE) State the differences between computerised and non-computerised



• banking was done manually by taking deposits directly
• transactions can only be made during working hours
• takes time to approve any loan applications

• all transactions are done by computers
• transaction can be done at anytime and place
• online services, phone banking system, credit cards are available


Production was slow because everything was done manually and totally depended on human labour.

Computers and telecommunications industry became very opular and profitable since production can be increased through an all day operation.


Commerce is an activity of exchanging, buying and selling of commodities on a large scale involving transportation from place to place.

• Trading was made using the barter system and it was then later developed into currency.
• Advertisement was in the form of word of mouth, billboards and printed flyers.
• Trading globally was extremely slow, late and expensive. Traders had to find ways to market local products in the global market.

E-commerce plays an important role in the economic scene. It includes distribution, buying, selling and servicing products that are done electronically. State the impact of ICT on society.

1. Faster communication speed.

With the capability of bandwidth, broadband and fast connection speed on the Internet, any information can travel fast in an instant. It saves time and is inexpensive.

2. Lower communication cost.

It's cheaper to use the Internet than using the telephone, mailing or courier services. It allows people to have access to a large amount of data at a very low cost.

3. Paperless environment.

Information can be stored and retrieved through a digital medium instead of paper.

4. Effective sharing of information.

People can share and exchange opinions, news and information through discussion groups, mailing lists and forums on the Internet. This enables knowledge/information sharing which will contribute to the development of a knowledge based society.

5. Reliable mode of communication.

Computers are reliable. With the internet, information can be accessed and retrieved from anywhere and at anytime. This makes it a reliable mode of communication. However, the input to the computer is contributed by humans. If the data passed to the computer is faulty, the result will be faulty as well. This is related to the term GIGO.

GIGO is a short form for Garbage In Garbage Out. It refers to the quality of output produced according to the input. Normally bad input produces bad output.

6. Borderless communication.

Internet offers fast information retrieval, interactivity, accessibility and versatility. It has become a borderless sources for services and information. Through the Internet, information and communication can be borderless.

7. Social problems.

There are some negative effects of ICT. It has created social problems in the society. Nowadays, people tend to choose online communication rather than having real time conversations. People tend to become more individualistic and introvert.

Other negative effects of ICT are :

• fraud

• identity theft

• Pornography

• Hacking

This will result in moral decadence and generate threats to the society.

8. Health problems.

A computer may harm users if they use it for long hours frequently. Computer users are also exposed to bad posture, eyestrain, physical and mental stress. In order to solve the health problems, an ergonomic environment can be introduced. For example, an ergonomic chair can reduce back strain and a screen filter can be used to minimize eye strain.

Procrastination. Terrible, I tell you. Everyone procrastinates, but I think I'm one of those people who even procrastinate on long-term stuff. Like if my parents weren't there to push me, I'd probably procrastinate on going to college, or whatever. Aaaaand, I'm terrible at replying to peoples messages online. Cuz I procrastinate, till it's a few months later and it wouldn't be appropriate to reply then, would it?
(I read and reply in my head to every single one of the messages I read though :) but it doesn't really matter if the other person doesn't get my reply. foosho. I'm so selfish. )
