Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Here’s a link from SearchCIO-MidMarket.

An Information Appliance, as opposed to any normal computer is:

• designed and pre-configured for a single application (like a toaster appliance, which is designed only to make toast),
• so easy to use for untrained people, that it effectively becomes unnoticeable, “invisible” to them,
• able to automatically share information with any other IAs.

    The questions sounds suspiciously like an assignment or homework from a class.
