Communication Scenario
A farmer travels to the nearest Internet kiosk to access an online agricultural portal to which he has posted a question about his crops. But when he arrives, the power is out (i.e., digital media are unusable), and there is a notice posted that the Internet kiosk will be permanently closing next week (i.e., device will be unavailable).
