Along with increasing investments in new technologies, user technology acceptance becomes a frequently studied topic in the information systems discipline. The last two decades have seen user acceptance models being proposed, tested, refined, extended, and unified. These models have contributed to our understanding of user technology acceptance factors and(More)
Post-adoptive system use is often characterized by cycles of adaptation, in which people actively revise how they use information systems. This paper investigates how and why individual users revise their system use at the feature level. A new concept, adaptive system use (ASU), is conceptualized as a user's revisions of which and how system features are(More)
Herd literature suggests that people tend to discount their own beliefs and imitate others when making adoption decisions and that the resulting adoption decisions are fragile and can be easily reversed during the post-adoptive stage. This helps explain why the adoption of a number of new technologies―from Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iPod, iPhone, and iPad, to(More)
Agarwal and Karahanna (2000) suggested that holistic user experiences with IT contribute to users' evaluation of and reaction to using the technology. They proposed and empirically tested a construct named cognitive absorption that has preceding effects on important user technology acceptance constructs. We propose that an important antecedent of cognitive(More)
Affect factors have gained researchers' attention in a number of fields. The Information Systems (IS) literature, however, shows some gaps and inconsistencies regarding the role of affect factors in human–computer interaction. Building upon prior research, this study aims at a better understanding of affect factors by clarifying their relationships with(More)
Identifying causal relationships is an important aspect of scientific inquiry. Causal relationships help us to infer, predict, and plan. This research investigates the causal relationships between two constructs, perceived enjoyment (PE) and perceived ease of use (PEOU), within the nomological net of user technology acceptance. PE has been theorized and(More)
Information and communication technology (ICT) acceptance and use is a prolific research stream in the information systems field. Yet, studies on attitude have gone through ups and downs yielding inconsistent and inconclusive findings on attitude's role and impact. In this paper, we provide clear definitions of two different types of attitudes and detail(More)
