    • "Previous studies have reported that younger employees tend to engage more in personal Internet use behaviours (Ahmad and Jamaluddin, 2009; Akman and Mishra, 2010; Jia et al., 2013). In Larsen and Sørebø (2005), age has been found to contribute negatively to Internet use. In Zhang (2005), younger and more educated employees were found to be less stressed when they use the Internet. "

    ABSTRACT: The advancement of the personal mobile devices has given employees the opportunity to use these devices for non-work-related activities which poses a new threat to companies. Hence, this study investigates the level and determinants of personal Internet use using personal devices among Malaysian employees. A total of 200 questionnaires were distributed to 12 organisations in Melaka and Kuala Lumpur. Results of this study indicate that habit and external locus of control are predictors of personal Internet use. The paper presents empirical data of individual and situational-related variables predicting personal Internet use among employees from the perspective of personal mobile devices

    ABSTRACT: Purpose – The purpose of this study is to present an overview of digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) and to explore the users' perception on DMB cellular phone or “cellevision”, video-on-the-go services that deliver television to cell phones. Design/methodology/approach – This two-phase study explores users' reactions to DMB contents and services, users' perceptions on the pricing of DMB phone handsets, phone usage time, program contents, and DMB carrier services. Findings from the use of qualitative method of existential phenomenology were explored further with quantitative analyses including T-test, ANOVA, and Duncan test. Findings – The young generation will be a major impact on the DMB market due to their mindset and lifestyle. Thus, the DMB market strategy should be to base decisions on reaching out and focusing on the younger generation (especially, the teens) as the latest trendsetters. Research limitations/implications – The sample size was collected during the experimental/trial stages of satellite DMB services. This research should be continued to solidify findings with an increased sample size of respondents collected during the actual stage of satellite-DMB and terrestrial-DMB services. Practical implications – The findings from this exploratory research will be valuable for the DMB service and content providers to gain insight into various age groups and their perceptions. Originality/value – This study is the first kind of research in this area. With the study as a forerunner, the authors examined the effect of DMB mobile phone program contents and services on users.
