We read books for a number of reasons but usually because we want to or we have to. When you pick up a book it falls into one of three types, dependent on whether it is a want to or a have to type of book. First there's the kind of book you pick up and like the look of but then the first chapter is so bad that you have to put it down because you are either too confused by the plot or you discover it has been written in some obscure untranslatable language. The second type is where the first cha

The wave of the future is drowning out very quickly. All the technology we have created will bit the dust before the systems really are used. At the end of the century all systems that have calendars to monitor systems or use calendars to show dates will shut down all at once. Major electronic systems such as elevators, alarm systems, fax machines, telephones, cars with computer systems will be nothing more than paper weights or wall designs nothing more. For years computers and electronic equi

The ending of the millennium could bring many problems to our technological society ; we have grown to rely on the most basic computer systems to make our lives convenient. In our attempts to streamline programming computer systems, we created a monster by using only the final 2-digits to represent a 4-digit year. Programmers were excited that they could save a couple of bytes of memory by cutting back the dates to 2-digit numbers. With the turning of the odometer, on December 31st, 1999, we po

Digging Out of the AI Winter In the early 1960s, when the first person fathomed the idea of artificial intelligence, it was nothing but a vision. It was a vision that seemed more than possible given the recent leaps in technological insight. Developments such as transistors, microprocessors, high-level programming languages, and many more had put the technology world in high gear. As a countless number of engineers and scientists went to work developing this coveted ‘artificial intelligence’, th

This is all fine but what happens when you start getting into other peoples computer files. Then it becomes a crime, but what is a computer crime really, obviously it involves the use of a computer but what are these crimes. Well they are: Hacking, Phreakin

A common misconception about computers is that they are smarter than
A common misconception about computers is that they are smarter than humans. Actually, the degree of a computer¹s intelligence depends on the speed of its ignorance. Today¹s complex computers are not really intelligent at all. The intelligence is in the people who design them. Therefore, in order to understand the intelligence of computers, one must first look at the history of computers, the way computers handle information, and, finally, the methods of programming the machines. The predecessor

It marked the 11th strait annual increase in the deficit with China and analysts believe this trend will result in the deficit with China surpassing the imbalance with Japan probably this year. Fundamental macroeconomics informs us that China’s trade surplus, created by virtue of its cheap labor, will directly support its plans to obtain

Introduction Object Orientation has become more and more important in the last years. Object oriented programming was designed for re-use of codes. It is a type of programming in which programmers define not only the data structure, but also the types of operations that can be applied to the data structure. In this way, the data structure becomes an object that includes both data and functions. In addition, programmers can create relationships between one object and another. For example, object
