    As a field of study, cyberethics is mainly understood as a branch of applied ethics. As opposed to theoretical ethics, applied ethics examines practical ethical issues. From the reading, identify one example in the textbook of applied cyberethics and one example of theoretical cyberethics.

  • 3.—-A possible view is that business and ethics simply have nothing to do with each other, and that the term “business ethics” is an oxymoron. Immoral behavior of individual market participants, such as high-profile managers or corporations (e.g., Enron, WorldCom, etc.), sometimes appear to support this view. Explain whether or not you agree and support your rationale.

  • 4.—-Consider that computers are becoming ubiquitous and have “ pervaded” our work and recreational environments. Objects in these environments already exhibit (or will very soon do so) what Brey (2005) and others call “ambient intelligence,” which enables “smart objects” to be connected to one another via wireless technology. Some consider Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to be the first step in what they refer to as pervasive or ubiquitous computing. Elaborate on the possible implications of this trend for cyberethics.
