Abstract
The research proposes a framework incorporating the flow theory and the theory of planned behaviour to understand the intention of subscribers to expand their use of mobile videophones. The research model was tested with the partial least square graph software based on its structural equation modelling approach. The data used in this research were collected from online questionnaires done by 151 respondents. The findings show that the flow and the subjective norm are positively related to the expanded intention to use mobile videophones and the privacy concern is negatively related to that intention. The results also reveal that the effects of media characteristics such as interactivity and telepresence may have significant influences on the flow. Moreover, the effects of the flow, the subjective norm and the privacy concern are moderated by self-monitoring. Regardless of personality, people are likely to expand the intention to use mobile videophones when they immerse themselves in the flow. Several implications for research and practice are derived from these findings.

This study explores the potential of a consumer technology adoption model in examining structural relationships among mobile commerce characteristics, perceived value, and intention to adopt mobile shopping for fashion products. Through an online survey method, the 511 valid questionnaires obtained from Korean users of a mobile Internet service identified perceived m-commerce characteristics consisting of four factors: usefulness, enjoyment, ease of use, and instant connectivity. The first three...

Due to rapid advances in the Internet and wireless technologies, a ubiquitous computing world is becoming a reality in the form of mobile computing. At the center of this phenomenon is mobile data services which arise from the convergence of advanced mobile communication technologies with data services. Despite the rapid growth in mobile data services, research into consumers' usage behavior is scarce. This study attempts to identify and empirically assess the factors that drive consumers' accep...

With the continued growth of business-to-consumer (B2C) e-business, online vendors are providing an increasing array of services that support and enhance their core products or services. For example, Amazon.com does not just sell books; it also enhances that core product with automated product recommendations, “wish list” tracking, order status updates, customer reviews, and many other valuable supporting services. These supporting services are made possible exclusively through the design and de...

This study examines the impact of culture on trust determinants in computer-mediated commerce transactions. Adopting trust-building foundations from cross-culture literature and focusing on a set of well-established cultural constructs as groups of culture (Type I and Type II), this study develops a theoretical model of self-perception-based versus transference-based consumer trust in e-vendors, and empirically tests the model using cross-cultural data. The results show that transference-based t...

Although voluntary individual adoption of information technology is well studied in the literature, further theoretical development is needed to account for the specific characteristics of the mobile commerce artifact. In this study, we augment the theory of planned behavior to include evaluative variables that are not fully captured in attitude and to enhance the specificity of the model to mobile commerce. More specifically, we develop, operationalize and empirically test a model for explainin...

Digital inequality is one of the most critical issues in the knowledge economy. The private and public sectors have devoted tremendous resources to address such inequality, yet the results are inconclusive. Theoretically grounded empirical research is needed both to expand our understanding of digital inequality and to inform effective policy making and intervention. The context of our investigation is a city government project, known as the LaGrange Internet TV initiative, which allowed all cit...

This study draws on the uses and gratifications framework to examine expanded use of a hybrid medium-the mobile phone-for mass communications and entertainment. Results of a telephone survey of 208 users show different motivations predict diverse uses of the mobile phone. Instrumental use motives drive the use of the mobile phone for news-seeking and Web-surfing. Further, the motive of pass time is significantly linked to playing video games via the mobile phone. In addition, the high-tech mobil...

This study aims to advance understanding of Internet interactions by considering the impact of Web site design and self-monitoring style on consumer preference. Four quasi-commercial Web sites were constructed containing identical information presented via a context-based (animated) or content-based (unanimated) design, and 2 advertisements of either image- or information-oriented style. Using a between-participants design, the study found that all individuals favored context-based over content-...

Whilst the importance of end-user training is recognized as a factor in the success of information systems, companies have suffered from relatively low information system training budgets and an insufficient number of trainers. However, technological innovations in computers, telecommunications and the Internet, e-learning has made it possible to overcome many constraints. In this study, we suggest an e-learning success model based on flow theory. A questionnaire-based empirical study was used t...

This study examines the utility of three prospective models for understanding the continued IT usage behavior. The three models include: Expectation-Confirmation Model in IT Domain (ECM-IT), Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), and a hybrid model integrating TAM and ECM-IT (extended ECM-IT). Based on a survey of 1826 mobile Internet users, the LISREL analysis shows that all three models meet the various goodness-of-fit criteria. When compared using special indices for differentiating among alterna...

Flow, or total concentration with intrinsic enjoyment, has been recognized as being able to enhance online gamer loyalty. However, some gamers who experience flow do not exhibit strong loyalty, posing the vital research question asking for whom flow would not enhance loyalty. Limited knowledge on this issue may lead game providers to assume that flow is influential in strengthening loyalty among all gamers, thus leading to suboptimal resource allocation and reduced effectiveness in retaining gam...

Abstract null null The Yarlung Zangbo River is the largest river on the Tibetan Plateau, which is considered a hotspot of biodiversity conservation efforts. In this study, the fish fauna of the middle and lower Yarlung Zangbo River was investigated, to explore the species composition and spatial patterns of fish assemblages as well as the associated environmental factors. Thirty-four sites across an elevation of 589 to 3410 m were sampled in 2015 and 2016. A total of 35 species—28 native and sev...

Connected vehicle (CV)technologies offer promising solutions to several problems in transportation systems. The trajectory data generated from CV technology can be used to identify real-time conflicts in intersections. To perform such identification, accurate vehicle localisation should be obtained to clearly recognise the conflicts between left-turning vehicles and straight-through vehicles in the opposite direction at the signal control intersection. This study presents a CV framework that use...
