The recent rain has caused a number of problems with our ICT systems. The move in the  last number of years to a completely ICT based world has shown how we can rely too much on computers.

If the electricity or telecommunications links go down then the entire system is useles - for example  Traffic Lights in Khobar

In the past we didn't have such a reliance on IT, we used  phone calls instead of emails, man power instead of  robotics.

Choose an aspect of modern life such as Business, Factories, Banking or Communication and write how we functioned before ICT.

Remember to inclide references to any internet research , headers/footers etc.
