.... changing at such fast pace, many businesses try to keep up by upgrading computer system constantly in order to stay competitive. In the example of Advance Management; the computer equipment they have is quite advances. For example, they own 3 computers of which one is solely for accounting purposes. The system includes a CPU Pentium II with 300 MHz microprocessor, a 64 MB SD Ram on board, a 56 K modem, a 32īCD-ROM, and also a 4.3 GB Hard Disk. This high quality equipment has bought recently and they have already contributed a lot in improving the bu .....

.... within a perfect Utopia? Or will it
cause pain and suffering due to a worldwide depression? A scale that would
be twenty-times the size of the Great Depression during the 1920's.
Technology has so wondrously and destructively marveled the human
mind and body throughout the centuries. From out of the dark depths of the
mind have sprung explosive ideas, producing inventions that have
transformed minute villages into gigantic civilizations; stimulating
population increases throughout the world. Simple tasks such as the
automatic traffic signal, and railway ai .....
Optical Storage Mediums
Number of words: 997 - Number of pages: 4
.... a little
bit, we can change tracks on a disk, and this movement is very small, usually
less than a hair’s width. This allows one to store an immense amount of data on
one disk. The light does not touch the disk surface, thereby not creating
friction, which leads to wear, so the life of an average optical disk is far
longer than that of a magnetic medium. Also, it is impossible to “crash” an
optical disk (in the same sense as crashing a hard drive), since there is a
protective layer covering the data areas, and that the “head” of the drive can
be quite far .....
Computer Software Piracy And It's Impact On The International Economy
Number of words: 3356 - Number of pages: 13
Software piracy harms all software companies and ultimately, the end
user. Piracy results in higher prices for honest users, reduced levels of
support and delays in funding and development of new products, causing the
overall breadth and quality of software to sufferĒ ("What is...Ē Internet). Even
the users of unlawful copies suffer from their own illegal actions: they receive
no documentation, no customer support and no information about product updates
("Software Use..." Internet).
The White Paper says that while virtually every software publisher .....
Number of words: 3429 - Number of pages: 13
.... going down every year due to competition in the market, it is estimated that by the year 2011 most every American home will have a PC with instant access to the Internet. With an increase in users everyday and new businesses taking advantage of perks of an alternate electronic world, this information dimension will only get bigger, more elaborate, provide more services, and we will find society as a whole more and more dependent on it.
However, even in an artificial environment such as the cyberspace, it appears mankind cannot escape from its somewhat overwhelmin .....
William Gibson's Neuromancer: Cyberspace
Number of words: 694 - Number of pages: 3
.... chat rooms where users can chat in real
time with one another. some users even think of on-line services as a community.
The second catagory involves Bulletin Boards or (BBS's). These services
allow the user accounts like their larger on-line service cousins. These BBS's
have less users because they run on smaller computers. The system operators,
more commonly known as sysops, are running the boards. Since most BBS's are
hobbies there is usually no charge for an account. The same as on-line services,
users use BBS's for trades, games, and to chat .....

.... serious than others. Computer crime can involve criminal activities such as theft, fraud, forgery and mischief, all which are easily defined and subject to criminal sanctions. The computer has also brought along with it a host of potentially new misuses or abuses that may, or should be criminal as well.
The problem with today’s computer crimes are that the criminal justice
systems have not been able to keep up with the technological change. Only a few
countries have adequate laws to address the problem, and of these, not one has
addressed all the leg .....
A Tour Of The Pentium Pro Processor Microarchitecture
Number of words: 2646 - Number of pages: 10
.... its pipelined,
superscalar microarchitecture. The Pentium processor's pipelined implementation
uses five stages to extract high throughput from the silicon - the Pentium Pro
processor moves to a decoupled, 12-stage, superpipelined implementation, trading
less work per pipestage for more stages. The Pentium Pro processor reduced its
pipestage time by 33 percent, compared with a Pentium processor, which means the
Pentium Pro processor can have a 33% higher clock speed than a Pentium processor
and still be equally easy to produce from a semiconductor manufacturing .....
