and enterprise - it's shoot first or be killed."
To understand how the Internet, on which so many base their hopes for education,
profit and international competitiveness, came to this pass, it can be
instructive to look at the security record of other parts of the international
The first, biggest error that designers seem to repeat is adoption of the
"security through obscurity" strategy. Time and again, attempts to keep a system
safe by keeping its vulnerabilities secret have failed.
Consider, for example, the running .....

.... ground by using armored motor vehicles. The Germans counteracted this by digging trenches across the roads of Germany. Some of the first armored vehicles were just normal cars converted in a tank. In 1915, Wolseley developed a thirty-cwt. lorry chassis with armored sides and a revolving turret with a Vickers-maxim machine gun. The first design of a tank known as “Little Willie” designed by Lieutenant W.G. Wilson and William Tritton. It consisted of an armored box encircled by caterpillar tracks. The first vehicle to be designed and completed as a tank wa .....

.... needed to
operate this equipment will be reduced. The building and repair of highways and
maintenance requires a large consumption of energy, not only in the operation of
the highway construction and repair equipment, but also in the manufacture and
transportation of the required materials. An increase in the percentage of
people telecommuting to work will decrease the need for expanded highways and
associated road maintenance. The first two areas related to getting to work.
Once a person arrives at a central office working location, he or she represent .....
Will Computers Control Humans In The Future?

.... would rely on the
computers rather than "try to memorize enough to match someone else who knows"
(Nine Tomorrows, Profession 55). People would not chose to study, they would
only want to be educated by computer tapes. Putting in knowledge would take
less time than reading books and memorizing something that would take almost no
time using a computer in the futuristic world that Asimov describes. Humans
might began to rely on computers and allow them to control themselves by letting
computers educate people. Computers would start teaching humans what computers .....

.... countries including Europe and the Phillipines in the early 70's. From
1969 to 1970 Intel's revenues went up by almost four-million dollars! Today,
Intel is one of the biggest companies pulling in billions and billions of
dollars each year.
Intel has had many factors over the years that has allowed it to
monopolize the computer industry thus resulting in small competition. First of
all, Intel is almost 25 years ahead of it's competitors. Therefore, most
companies are just starting out and have little or no effect on Intel's sales.
Another reason is obvi .....

.... the hundred's place moved one notch and so on. The drawback to the Pascaline, of course, was its limitation to addition.
In 1694, a German mathematician named Gottfried Wilhem von Leibniz, improved the Pascaline by creating a machine that could also multiply. Leibniz's mechanical multiplier worked by a system of gears and dials. By studying Pascal's original notes and drawings, Leibniz was able to refine his machine. It wasn't until 1820 that mechanical calculators gained widespread use. Charles Xavier Thomas de Colmar, a Frenchman, invented a machine that c .....
