As demonstrated in the theory of reasoned Action, the Technology Acceptance Model postulates that the use of an information system is determined by the behavioral intention, but on the other hand, that the behavioral intention is determined by the person’s attitude towards the use of the system and also by his perception of its utility.

Finally, cross-sectional research methodology provides a challenge, as the correlation between behavioral intention and the actual taking of action has been shown to be weak 21 , 22 Therefore, the model does not verify the previously studied relationship between health behavioral intention and health action.

We are constantly leap frogging all over the place which is making this accelerated returns kick in. Everyday crystallization and convergences are happening bring humans together in Unity around the globe.

Besides, the Model hypothesizes a direct link between perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, which suggests that with two systems offering the same features, the one which is easier to use will be perceived as more useful by the user ( Dillon and Morris 1996 ).

KSAST is dedicated to work on the general interest of the society, including widespread development of theory and technology related to animal production, and establishing of cooperation among academia, research, and farms for promotion of animal related issues.

McLaren was first to use carbon-fiber composites in its cars, developed an air-flow system that exploited a loophole in the rules to deliver a 6 mile-per-hour speed advantage and in 2009 won the first race using hybrid technology that stores up energy from braking to deliver a sudden burst of power.

While the original TAM instrument is recommended for use, its weakness (in comparison to TAM2 – or the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology) is the original does not account for additional explanatory variables such as subjective norms.
