Fun Fact: The first Webcam was invented by the students at the Cambridge University who were fed up of making trips to the Coffee Pot, only to find it empty.

They used a 129x129 pixel grayscale camera to monitor Coffee levels. Ironically, the ‘Web’ did not even exist even though they had a ‘Web’cam. 😂

We at TerrierByteIT love to bring you all the tech from the past to the present. .
For example D.Y.K That November 20th 1955 Lotus Notes Inventor Ozzie Was Born? Ray Ozzie, who designed the Lotus Notes office management software for Lotus Development Corporation, was born in Chicago, IL. Ozzie graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in 1979. During this time Ray worked at the Computer-based Education Research Lab (CERL) on the PLATO operating system. .

What, you can’t read that? Oh. O.K. On this day, the word “hacking” was used in an issue of “the tech”, which is a massachusetts institute of technology newspaper. Here is a snippet of the article "Many telephone services have been curtailed because of so-called hackers, according to Prof. Carlton Tucker, administrator of the Institute phone system…" Basically, hackers were tying up phone lines between Harvard and MIT.

1985 - Two years after initially being announced, Microsoft finally ships the first version of Windows. Originally slated to be shipped in April of 1984, the long delay caused skeptics to began to accuse Windows of being “vaporware”. Due to the relatively high demands of then-current PC technology, Windows 1.0 was generally considered too slow to be usable. It wasn’t until Windows 3 that the operating system began to generate significant sales.

2013 – AOL shocked a lot of geeks when they announced WinAmp.comwould be shutting down and the software would be no longer available come December 20th.  The next day rumors surfaced that Microsoft was planning to buy it – which didn’t go further than the inital report. The service did not shut down though. On January 14th, 2014 it was announced a Belgian radio website called “Radionomy” had purchased the Nullsoft brand, including WinAmp and Shoutcast.

That's it everyone the weekend is over, It's Sunday evening so it's gotta be time for me to ask D.Y.K It Was November 19th 1992 When Sonic The Hedgehog 2 Was Released? Sega released the second game for its top franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog, for the Sega Genesis platform. Genesis was running second to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System with its franchise creations such as Mario and Starfox. Sonic would be the leading character for Sega platforms throughout the 1990s, and would eventually be licensed to other companies once Sega stopped producing it’s own platforms with its Dreamcast system.
.
1993 - Don’t Post Bomb Instructions Online The Ionizer – Otherwise known as Michael Elanky, recieved 28 months in prison for posting bomb-making instructions on his BBS. There have been other instances of this throughout history, but Elansky was a member of the International Information Retrieval Guild, a computer group very much concerned with freedom of speech and freedom of information. Like the group with which he was affiliated, Michael felt strongly about our First Amendment rights.Therefore, he posted on his BBS – called the Warehouse – instructions on making bombs. Michael was arrested back in July 1993 and couldn’t post the $500,000 bail. Therefore he spent 4 months in jail. The instructions were originally written by “Deth Vegetable”.
.
2006 - Nintendo releases the Wii game console to compete with the Sony Playstation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. By forgoing raw computing power for increased player interaction utilizing the innovative motion-sensitive “Wiimote” controller, the Wii defied expectations and became the best-selling seventh-generation game console.
.
2007 - Amazon introduces their Kindle e-book reader. Where other companies had released e-book readers in previous years with limited success, the Kindle’s integration with Amazon’s industry leading book distribution system helped catapult the e-reader into the the mainstream consciousness. The Kindle sold out within five hours of its debut.

1963 IBM Tech Conference folk art gold radiator paint uke. #technologyhistory #computerhistory #researchhistory #ibm #vintagefolkart #folkartpaint #socialhistory #techfolk #curleysantiques
Took time out today to take my family of 8 to watch the newest release of Paddington 2. We had to drive 25 miles out of our way to the Plaza Cinema in Dorchester saving us £49 rather than using our local Cineworld Cinema in Yeovil Who wanted to charge almost £80 utter greed. I'm So glad I did as it was a great place to go with very friendly and helpful staff too. .
Anyway enough of that D.Y.K ON November 18th  1970 Bill Gates Started Programming? Microsoft Corp. co-founder and CEO Bill Gates got his start in computer programming at the Lakeside School in Seattle. The school owned some early computers and Gates and his friends spent nearly all their time pushing the machines to their limits. Time on Lakeside and other machines in the Seattle area was costly, however, so the newly formed Lakeside Programmers Group offered Information Sciences, Inc. free programming services on its PDP-10 in return for free time on the computer. The group designed a payroll program for the company.
.
1963 - Bell Telephone offers the first electronic push-button telephones to customers in Carnegie and Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) technology (Touch-Tone) was also introduced on the same day in order to accommodate the new push-button telephones uptown this point it had only been rotary dial.
.
1894 – The first Sunday Comics section is printed by the New York World. 1985 – 91 years later, Bill Watterson syndicates a comic about a boy and his stuffed Tiger. Calvin and Hobbes will bring laughter to millions for the next ten years. It reached through 2,400 newspapers (at it’s height) and spun off 18 books. Bill Watterson ended the comic on December 31st, 1995 and has left it retired since.

Welcome to my page fellow teccie friends. I try to bring you technology from the past to the now. They say knowledge is power so without further ado let's get this show on the road. .
Today is 17th November 2017 However D.Y.K that on November 17th 1929 Herman Hollerith Died?.
.
Herman Hollerith died of a heart attack at age 69. Hollerith's experience before he was 30 at the US Census Bureau and US Patent Office and as instructor in mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology set the stage for inventing the successful card system for the 1890 census.
.
After this achievement, Hollerith set up his Tabulating Machine Co. in 1896. In 1911 it became the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Co., which Thomas Watson, Sr. joined in 1914. A decade later it became International Business Machines.
.
2008 - Jerry Yang Steps down as Yahoo! CEO, After battle upon battle between Microsoft, Google and shareholders (including Carl Icahn), Jerry Yang finally announced to all he was stepping down as CEO of Yahoo! The previous days, Steve Ballmer said they are not going forward with any future purchase of Yahoo! Because of this, stock hit it’s lowest share price, $8. That, the failed Google affiliation (due to antitrust issues), and a very despondent group of investors, Jerry felt it best to step back in his roll.
.
That's our lot for tonight. Please join me tomorrow for more.

Good evening everyone D.Y.K That it's exactly  113 YES you read it 113 Yrs to the day on 16th November 1904 The Vacuum Tube Was  Invented? 😮😮 John Ambrose Fleming applied for a US patent on what he called the “oscillation valve“, the first example of the vacuum tube. Vacuum tubes would form the basis of electronic technology for nearly 50 years until the development of the transistor. Fleming’s invention has been described as one of the most important developments in the history of electronics.
.
1922 - IBM System/360 hardware designer Gene Amdahl was born in Flandreau, South Dakota. The System/360 marked IBM’s transition from discrete transistors to integrated circuits, as well as its move to a focus on electronic computer systems rather than punch card equipment. Amdahl went on from IBM to found his own company, Amdahl Computer Corp., which was very successful in making the first IBM-compatible mainframe systems.
.
1977 - Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind Debuts. Most of the time, we skip over movie releases, unless it has had a definite impact on the Tech and geek community. That is the case with this movie. Close Encounters of the Third Kind – Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Richard Dreyfuss, and Teri Garr was released to 272 US theaters. It was produced on a budget of US$20 million, amd would gross US $5,379,460 in the opening weekend. .
1982- Steve Jobs writes a letter to McIntosh Labs asking for rights to use “Macintosh” as the brand name of Apple’s still-in-development computer. McIntosh Labs makes high-end stereo equipment, and while Jef Raskin, creator of the Macintosh project, intentionally spelled the name with a letter “a” to differentiate Apple’s computer from McIntosh’s audio products, Apple was denied a trademark because the name was phonetically identical.

Information Theory is the absolute core of our modern technological society, and we are still just skimming the surface of its depths.

Evening everyone it's almost the middle of November seems to be that it was the time of the year that new tech started to tail off before dare I say it? Christmas !!.
.
D.Y.K That on 15th November 1971 Was The Dawn of the Microprocessor?
.
An advertisement in the magazine Electronic News announced the Intel 4004, the first commercially available microprocessor. The 4004 was primarily used in calculators, the first being the Busicom 141-PF. In fact, it was Busicom that actually developed the design of what would become the Intel 4004. Busicom approached Intel to help them finalize the design and manufacture their “calculator engine”. .
Intel’s engineers reduced the 12 integrated circuit design Busicom had come up with to 4 ICs and delivered the finished product in January 1971. Busicom had exclusive rights to that design until later in that year, when Busicom and Intel renegotiated their contract with Intel lowering their prices to Busicom in exchange for rights to the design of the microprocessor.
.
By offering the first general-purpose programmable processor to the general market, Intel spurred the rapid development of electronic devices in the 1970s, culminating in the development of personal computers during that decade. However, Intel wasn’t the clear leader in the microprocessor market until the IBM PC and clones helped catapult Intel to that title in the 1980’s.

Hello all bit late today but D.Y.K November 14, 1943

Software Publisher and Author Peter Norton Was Born?? Peter Norton was born on this day in 1943 in Aberdeen, Washington. Norton would first come to note for producing tools that could retrieve erased data from DOS disks that would eventually be compiled into suite called Norton Utilities. Norton founded Peter Norton Computing, which produced both software utilities as well as publishing several manuals and books. In 1990, Norton sold his company to Symantec, which would keep the Norton name alive for more than a decade following the purchase. He currently heads up The Peter Norton Family Foundation, which is a major philanthropic group supporting the arts and human social services.

2006 - Knock-knock Who’s there? Microsoft Zune.
Microsoft Zune who? Exactly. Microsoft releases their Zune media player, intended to compete with Apple’s iPod. Hailed by some as an “iPod-killer”, the only killing done was by Microsoft less than 5 years later when they ended production of the Zune brand. Otherwise known as simply another media player to fall to the iPod behemoth, the Zune is considered a spectacular failure when taking into account the weight of the Microsoft brand at the time. The Zune’s lack of success foreshadowed of the decline of Microsoft in The New World of Technology, once Apple introduced the iPhone and iPad effectively ending the PC Era.
.
During the 80’s and 90’s, there was a little show called COMDEX. It stood for Computer Dealer Exhibition. For a while, there were 2 versions: The Spring COMDEX (Alternating for a while between Altanta and Chicago) and the Fall COMDEX (Las Vegas). The show was attended by many and there were vendors galore. I remember seeing Bill Gates at the 1998 Comdex for the Blue screen error when they plugged in a scanner. I also saw President William Clinton give a keynote.COMDEX finally fell in 2003. Nonetheless, a lot of History falls between this time and about April from the show. .

WOW just wow, It's taken nearly 10hours to install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update !!! Now to test run .... While I'm waiting D.Y.K November 13th 1851 First Underwater Telegraph Cable Was Laid?.
.
Laid by British telegraphic engineer John Watkins Brett and his brother Jacob Brett, the world’s first operational underwater telegraph cable opens for business. Connecting the English city of Dover to the French city of Calais, the cable was ran at the narrowest point of the English channel. With this link, communication between London and Paris was made possible.
.
1983 - MIT's TX-O Computer Turned On for Last Time, The MIT TX-0, an experimental transistorized computer, is brought back to life for the third (and final) time at The Computer Museum in Marlboro, Massachusetts. The resurrection was achieved under the care of its devoted technician, John McKenzie, MIT Professor Jack Dennis, who was in charge of the machine, and a number of users. The TX-0 was built at Lincoln Laboratories in 1955 then dismantled and moved to MIT in 1956 where it was deemed to be obsolete in two years. The TX-0 is considered to be one the earliest transitorized computers ever designed.

2006 - Google Completes YouTube Aquisition. In February 14, 2005, 3 former Paypal employees started a website that let you upload and share your video. YouTube brought a new idea of putting your creations on the internet. However, their creation got very popular. It cost a lot of money to run and the company couldn’t keep up with costs. Enter: Google. They purchased the site from the founders for $1.65 billion on October 9. Today marked the completion of this acquisition.

That's all for now but pop tomorrow for more.

Another piece of technology from mid-1980s. This thing is going to stay at my flat for a time being. The second ever laptop by IBM, the first IBM PC to have 3.5" floppy drives... Has a built-in 2400 bps analog modem, and RS-232 and parallel ports in an expansion module. First version, with non-backlit LCD. Was a poor seller because IBM tried to sell a 80c88-based machine without a hard disk for $2000 when Compaq already marketed nice 80286 machines for more or less similar money. Has no power supply, but 15V/2.7A with a minus on a barrel shouldn't be a problem. Otherwise reportedly works. Any vintage PC collectors here in Moscow, that's almost a giveaway ($20, as is)? Have no desire to mess with the thing, actually, although would like to see it running again. For ye young'uns: the CPU runs at 4.77 MHz, it has 256 kilobytes of static RAM (less than this picture occupies in my smartphone's memory) and quite nice clicky-clicky keyboard... with a piece of shit in a form of Fn-ing PgUp and PgDn to up and down arrow keys. Can run only old DOS. The real IBM stuff!

Evening Teccies D.Y.K That 34 Yrs Ago In 1983 Windows 1.0 was born?.
.
1983 – Windows 1.o was announced at the Helmsley Palace Hotel in New York City. It was one of the most elaborate product introductions to date. Gates says Windows 1.0 will officially release in 1984, yet it didn’t release until June, 1985.
.
1986 – Back in that day, Comdex was the big computer show. There were two versions: one that was held in Chicago in the spring and the other in Las Vegas mid-November. At this time, Atari was the big dog on the block. Jack Tramiel was putting all efforts in this years Comdex after seeing a small dip in the shares.So they set up a 65 booth display with different 3rd party developers that would show off what the Atari could do. The big innovation that year – the SX212 1200 baud modem for $99.95. They also showed off the Atari 2600jr and the Atari 7800, and because of that impressive show, Atari boasted a $25 million profit that year.
.
Of course, the company went well for a few more years, merged with JTS, which was then bought by Hasbro in 1998. The company still is survived in a way to this day, but not in the glory that it was back then.
.
2001 - Apple ships the first iPod, the device that changed the course of both the music and technology industries. Of course, at the time, most “experts” could only focus on the fact that other devices cost less and may have had more impressive technical specs. Sort of like they do today. I guess when it comes to “experts” and Apple devices, they haven’t learned their lesson yet!

Куди підуть два програмісти насамперед, приїхавши в Кремнієву долину? Правильно, в Музей комп'ютерної історії 🙂
Нам пощастило потрапити якраз на початок екскурсії. Дуже цікаво було послухати і подивитися на історію розвитку обчислень і ще купу всього починаючи з різноманітних рахівниць, аж до історії гри #Warcraft 
Дізналися і про те, як Стів Возняк розробив свій перший комп'ютер тільки для того, щоб вразити друзів, і про те, як сіра коробка з кнопками стала поштовхом для створення #Microsoft , і як з'явився перший Macintosh. Також подивилися телереклами для Apple2 і IBM PC і навіть пограли Пекмена на старому автоматі.
Ну а закінчилася історія, звичайно, в тематичній крамниці зі всякими класними футболками, пазлами зі Стартреком, листівками з комп'ютерами, ну ... і нашими новими магнітиками і футболкою з Андроїдом 😁
Як ж сильно ми звикли до комп'ютерів в нашому житті (навіть коти знають, як бавитися ігри на планшеті), що це навіть не здається нам чимось незвичайним. А всього приблизно 50 років все тільки починалося. Що ж принесуть нам наступні 50? Важко навіть уявити :)

Evening everyone sometimes things are made an brought to us in small packages ! ( No puns intended we are not that sort of business 🤣) Where was I ? Umm oh yah sometimes things come small packages tonight is one of those things, .
D.Y.K It was 13 years ago Today on the 9th November 2004 That A Firefox Rose Out of the Ashes?? .
The Mozilla Foundation released version 1.0 of the Firefox web browser. Firefox is significant in Internet history because it represented the first serious alternative to the dominance of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer in several years. By many estimations, Internet Explorer had risen to over 90% of browser marketshare since the downfall of Netscape many years earlier.
.
It is interesting to note, however, that it was Netscape itself that started the Mozilla project when it released the source code to their Netscape Communicator software in 1998. It was upon this codebase that the foundations of Firefox were laid. Firefox’s original name was Phoenix, seemingly in tribute to the fact that out of the ashes of the fallen Netscape came a new browser.
.
That's it folks said it was short lol 🤣🤣 pop back tomorrow for more.

Anyway D.Y.K November 8th 1895 German Physics Professor Wilhelm Röntgen stumbled upon what he would later describe as “X-rays” ? While experimenting with electrical discharge tubes. Curious as to what was causing a faint green glow on a nearby fluorescent screen, Röntgen began systematically studying the unknown rays and published the first paper on the phenomenon less than two months later. He referred to the rays as “X”, indicating that they were an unknown form of radiation at the time. The name has stuck, although in several languages, X-rays are referred to as Röntgen rays, in tribute to his discovery. Incidentally, Röntgen was awarded the very first Nobel Prize in Physics in 1901 for his work on X-rays.
.
1923 - Integrated Circuit Co-Inventor Kilby Was Born. Jack Kilby Was born in Jefferson City, Missouri. After several years of study at the University of Illinois and the University of Wisconsin, Kilby began work at Texas Instruments Inc., where he invented the integrated circuit in 1958. With that invention, he proved that resistors and capacitors could exist on the same piece of semiconductor material. 
The first integrated circuit consisted of a sliver of germanium with five components linked by wires. It was Robert Noyce at Fairchild Semiconductor, however, who made Kilby's invention practical—both men are thus credited with the invention of the IC.
.
1993 - Windows for Workgroups 3.11, Microsoft released the OS Windows for Workgroups 3.11 – which is the last big release before Windows 95. It was built to connect better with Windows NT for businesses. It also had updates to improve stability and system performance.

Evening all today's date in history was bit of a game changer D.Y.K IBM Signed A Deal With The Devil On November 6th 1980? .
IBM and Microsoft formally signed a contract whereby Microsoft would create an operating system for the in-development IBM PC. During the summer of 1980, IBM was originally interested in licensing the popular CP/M operating system, but the inability to come to an agreement with Digital Research led IBM to ask Microsoft if they could develop an operating system similar to CP/M. Microsoft was already going to work with IBM to deliver their BASIC programming language for the IBM PC, but they did not have an operating system. However, Microsoft knew that a small company named Seattle Computer Products had developed an operating system similar to CP/M called QDOS, for Quick-and-Dirty Operating System. Microsoft suggested to IBM that QDOS could work as the IBM PC’s operating system. IBM asked Microsoft to license and further develop the operating system, which led to the formal contract on November 6, 1980. After the contract was signed, in December 1980 Microsoft would license the QDOS operating system to begin development of the IBM PC version. In July of 1981, just weeks before the IBM PC would ship, Microsoft purchased full rights from SCP for what was now called 86-DOS. IBM PC-DOS was the name of the operating system that would ship on the IBM PC, but it was Microsoft that wholly developed the operating system after acquiring it from SCP.
.
1995 - Voodoo 3D Accelerator 3DFX releases the much anticipated Voodoo 3D acceleerator. QuakeGL becomes the first game using the Voodoo 3D. Hi-resolution rendering was it’s advantage. 3Dfx would continue to make the VooDoo until NVidia acquires the rights. 3Dfx would ultimately file for bankruptcy in 2002.

After the contract was signed, in December 1980 Microsoft would license the QDOS operating system to begin development of the IBM PC version. In July of 1981, just weeks before the IBM PC would ship, Microsoft purchased full rights from SCP for what was now called 86-DOS. IBM PC-DOS was the name of the operating system that would ship on the IBM PC, but it was Microsoft that wholly developed the operating system after acquiring it from SCP. . 1995 - Voodoo 3D Accelerator 3DFX releases the much anticipated Voodoo 3D acceleerator. QuakeGL becomes the first game using the Voodoo 3D. Hi-resolution rendering was it’s advantage. 3Dfx would continue to make the VooDoo until NVidia acquires the rights. 3Dfx would ultimately file for bankruptcy in 2002. . #TerrierByteIT  #Wifeidge  #IBM  #microsoft  #3DFX  #computerhistory  #computer  #history  #retro  #technology  #tech  #vintage  #techhistory  #computers  #technologyhistory  #trivia  #wifeidge  #computerscience  #retrotech

D.Y.K That On November 5th 1999: Microsoft Found a Monopoly? It was over 12 years that we saw Microsoft Computers go through the Department of Justice over Monopoly issues. US district Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson issued a 207 page Findings of fact on this day. In it, he ruled that Microsoft did have a Monopoly power over the OS in the Intel market. During the week we talked about what leads up to this 207 page ruling.

2006 - The Internet Boasted 100 Million Sites, According to Internet services company Netcraft Ltd., on this day over 100 million Web sites existed on the Internet. The milestone capped an extraordinary year in which the Internet added 27.4 million sites, easily topping the previous full-year growth record of 17 million from 2005. The Internet doubled in number of sites since May 2004, when the survey hit 50 million. Blogs and small business Web sites drove the explosive growth in 2006, with huge increases in free blogging services at Google and Microsoft. The first Netcraft survey in August 1995 found 18,957 hosts.
.
2007 - Google introduced the Android platform, its mobile operating system for cell phones based on a modified version of the Linux operating system. The first Android-based phone would ship in September of 2008. Between them, Android and iOS accounted for 99.6 percent of all smartphone sales in the fourth quarter of 2016. Of the 432 million smartphones sold in the last quarter, 352 million ran Android (81.7 percent) and 77 million ran iOS (17.9 percent). But what happened to the other players? Well, in the same quarter, Windows Phone managed to round up 0.3 percent of the market.

Evening everyone we are now in winter time so darker nights 🙈🙈🙈. D.Y.K On October 29th 1878 Willgodt T. Odhner Was Granted a Patent for a Calculating Machine That Performed Multiplications by Repeated Additions?
.
The patent, a modified and compact version of Gottfried von Leibniz's stepped wheel, was acquired and embodied in Brunsviga calculators that sold into the 1950s.
.
1955 - Reynold Johnson brought a new idea to life. Using magnetic cylinder memory, His team put 50 platters – 24 inch disks – into a series. The end result – the first hard drive was born. The device was then produced as the IBM 350.
.
1969 - The First Message on the Internet Is Sent UCLA student Charley Kline attempted to transmit the text “login” to a computer at the Stanford Research Institute over the first link on the ARPANET, which was the precursor to the modern Internet. After the letters “l” and “o” are sent the system crashed, making the first message ever sent on the Internet “lo”. About an hour later, after recovering from the crash, the full text of “login” is successfully sent.
.
2013 - William Lowe, Inventor of the IBM PC Passes Away If you grew up in the 80’s, you knew what an IBM PC was. Even in the 90’s and 00’s, the PC was what you had in the corner of the house to do homework on, surf the internet, work out expenses and more.
.
William C. Lowe was the man that brought that all together. He joined IBM in 1962 and left in 1991. It was in 1981 that the IBM PC debuted. Did you know IBM was late in the PC game? In order for them to beef up a PC division, they almost bought Atari. Instead, they decided to go with an open archetecture with the PC. It took one year to develop and in the end the IBM PC could be purchased for $1,565. We remember William C. Lowe with admiration.

Evening all, today is a celebration day 🎉🎊🎈. D.Y.K That On October 28, 1937 Microprocessor Co-Inventor Marcian Edward Hoff Was Born? Dr. Marcian Edward (Ted) Hoff, Jr. wass born on October 28th 1937 at Rochester, New York. He received a BEE (1958) from Rensselear Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. During the summers away from college he worked for General Railway Signal Company in Rochester where he made developments that produced his first two patents. He attended Stanford as a National Science Foundation Fellow and received a MS (1959) and PhD (1962) in electrical engineering. He joined Intel in 1968. In 1980, he was named the first Intel Fellow, the highest technical position in the company. He spent a brief time as vice president for technology with Atari in the early 1980s and was vice president and chief technical officer with Teklicon, Inc., a patent and intellectual property advisory firm.
.
1955 - Bill Gates, Co-Founder and CEO of Microsoft Corporation Was Born. Bill Gates developed a version of BASIC for the Altair 8800 while a student at Harvard. With the success of BASIC, he and co-developer Paul Allen founded Microsoft. The fledgling company delivered an operating system for the IBM PC, the Microsoft Word word processing program, the Windows operating system, and a multitude of other programs. Gates stepped down as Microsoft CEO in 1999 and was replaced by President Steve Ballmer. Although he remained closely tied to Microsoft’s vision and operations, Gates devoted more of his time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a philanthropic entity that, among other goals, promotes worldwide health initiatives, educational opportunities, and a means to end poverty and hunger. Even after all of his charitable giving, Gates has been listed as the world’s richest person more than once by Forbes.
.
1998 - US President Bill Clinton signs into law the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The law is intended to criminalize production and dissemination of technology.

Today was the last weekday of summer 2017 tomorrow evening the clocks go back an hour to wintertime. 🤞 We don't as yet need the heating on YAY.

So it's time to ask D.Y.K That On October 27th 1980 The First Major Network Crash, the Four-Hour Collapse of the ARPANET, Occurred? .
The ARPANET, predecessor of the modern Internet, was set up by the Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Initially it had linked four sites in California and Utah, and later was expanded to cover research centers across the country.
.
The network failure resulted from a redundant single-error detecting code that was used for transmission but not storage, and a garbage-collection algorithm for removing old messages that was not resistant to the simultaneous existence of one message with several different time stamps. The combination of the events took the network down for four hours. Crikey 😮☹️.
.
1999 - Dell PC Sales Were #1 Dataquest, a company that monitors PC sales, has shown a trend that Dell had maintained a 5% lead over Apple for 2 consecutive quarters. Therefore, Dell had become #1 in computer sales for 1999. Of course, a recent report mentioned that Apple could now buy Dell if it so inclined.

Well Behaved episode 20
History loves to minimize the accomplishments of women, but Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer. Probably. It's complicated - almost as complicated as the algorithm she came up with, so fuck you guy from Google who wrote that dumbass memo. Ada was the first person who was able to conceptualize what computers would one day be able to do.

Had first small trip out with the new wheels. Where to? The scrapyard had to get some spares lol 🤣 D.Y.K That October 25th 1984 The Osbourne Vixen, Encore Debuted? The Osborne Vixen was a "luggable" portable computer announced by the Osborne Computer Corporation as a follow up to their Osborne 1 and Osborne Executive system. The Vixen had a 4 MHz Zilog Z80 microprocessor, with 64 KB dynamic random-access memory(DRAM). It had a 7-inch diagonal amber display that could show 24 lines by 80 columns of memory mapped video. It used two 400 KB disk drives, utilizing double-density double-sided 5.25" diskettes. As a luggable, it weighed about 18 pounds. Contemporary advertising pointed out that it could fit under the seat in an airplane, with dimensions of 12 5⁄8 by 16 1⁄4 by 6 1⁄4 inches (321 by 413 by 159 mm). When it was released, the Vixen had a retail price of $1298. Customers also had the option of purchasing a 10 megabyte hard disk for $1498. The Vixen used version 2.2 of the CP/M operating system. It was also bundled with a number of software packages: WordStar, the popular word processing package; SuperCalc, a spreadsheet; MBASIC, a programming language; Osboard, a graphics and drawing program; TurnKey, a system utility; MediaMaster, a data interchange program that allowed compatibility with over "200 other computers"; and Desolation, a game. The Vixen was also known as the Osborne 4. It was developed and released after the bankruptcy of the Osborne corporation. An earlier system also called "Vixen" was never released. Due to technical problems with prototypes and the corporate bankruptcy, by the time the CP/M Vixen was introduced, it had already been made obsolete by MS-DOS IBM PC compatibles. A last ditch effort to design and market a fully IBM PC compatible produced three prototypes, but too late to save the company from bankruptcy.

2001 – Microsoft released Windows XP Home, Pro for retail. XP used the NT Kernel and merged the consumer desktop OS with the business desktop OS. XP was code-named “Whistler”.

Been a busy few days I have been on several trips up an down England on the look for a family mpv. Scored today so happy as Larry whole gang can go out together again. Now D.Y.K That October 24th 1922 Werner Buchholz Born?

Werner Buchholz was a member of the teams that designed the IBM 701 and Stretch models. Buchholz used the term "byte" to describe a sequence of eight bits—although in the 1950s, when the term first was used, equipment used six-bit chunks of information, and a byte equaled six bits. Buchholz described a byte as the group of bits required to encode a character, or the numbers of bits transmitted in parallel in a communications channel.

1995 – The Federal Networking council officially coined the term Internet: the Council’s Committee on Computing, Information and Communications (CCIC) created the FNC on Sept. 20th, 1995 to act as a forum for networking collaborations among Federal agencies. From nitrd.gov Resolution: The Federal Networking Council (FNC) agreed that the following language reflects our definition of the term “Internet. “Internet refers to the global information system that – (i) is logically linked together by a globally unique address space based on the Internet Protocol (IP) or its subsequent extensions/follow-ons; (ii) is able to support communications using the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) suite or its subsequent extensions/follow-ons, and/or other IP-compatible protocols; and (iii) provides, uses or makes accessible, either publicly or privately, high level services layered on the communications and related infrastructure described herein.

2003 - The Concorde supersonic jet made its last commercial flight. While being able to cross the Atlantic in about 3.5 hours, low passenger numbers and rising maintenance costs made operating the Concorde unprofitable for British Airways and Air France. .

Short and sweet tonight D.Y.K October 23, 2001 The iPod was released? Using the slogan, “1000 Songs in Your Pocket,” Steve Jobs introduced the original iPod, featuring a 5 GB hard drive, Firewire connectivity, and synchronization to iTunes. 
By using a 1.8″ drive, the iPod was significantly smaller than competing MP3 players of the time. The Firewire port allowed simultaneous charging and high-speed music synchronization, innovative for its time. At the time, the original iPod only worked with Macintosh computers. 
However, the popularity of the iPod among Windows users – who had to hack together a solution to use it with their computers – prompted Apple to release a Windows compatible version in the second generation of iPods. With the introduction of the iTunes Music Store in June of 2003, the runaway success of the iPod completely changed the landscape of the music and computer industry. Like other digital music players, iPods can serve as external data storage devices. Apple's iTunes software (and other alternative software) can be used to transfer music, photos, videos, games, contact information, e-mail settings, Web bookmarks, and calendars, to the devices supporting these features from computers using certain versions of Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Before the release of iOS 5, the iPod branding was used for the media player included with the iPhoneand iPad, a combination of the Music and Videos apps on the iPod Touch. As of iOS 5, separate apps named "Music" and "Videos" are standardized across all iOS-powered products. 
While the iPhone and iPad have essentially the same media player capabilities as the iPod line, they are generally treated as separate products. During the middle of 2010, iPhone sales overtook those of the iPod.

Short and sweet tonight D.Y.K October 23, 2001 The iPod was released? Using the slogan, “1000 Songs in Your Pocket,” Steve Jobs introduced the original iPod, featuring a 5 GB hard drive, Firewire connectivity, and synchronization to iTunes. By using a 1.8″ drive, the iPod was significantly smaller than competing MP3 players of the time. The Firewire port allowed simultaneous charging and high-speed music synchronization, innovative for its time. At the time, the original iPod only worked with Macintosh computers. However, the popularity of the iPod among Windows users – who had to hack together a solution to use it with their computers – prompted Apple to release a Windows compatible version in the second generation of iPods. With the introduction of the iTunes Music Store in June of 2003, the runaway success of the iPod completely changed the landscape of the music and computer industry. Like other digital music players, iPods can serve as external data storage devices. Apple's iTunes software (and other alternative software) can be used to transfer music, photos, videos, games, contact information, e-mail settings, Web bookmarks, and calendars, to the devices supporting these features from computers using certain versions of Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Before the release of iOS 5, the iPod branding was used for the media player included with the iPhoneand iPad, a combination of the Music and Videos apps on the iPod Touch. As of iOS 5, separate apps named "Music" and "Videos" are standardized across all iOS-powered products. While the iPhone and iPad have essentially the same media player capabilities as the iPod line, they are generally treated as separate products. During the middle of 2010, iPhone sales overtook those of the iPod. . . #TerrierByteIT  #Apple  #ipod  #stevejobs  #computerhistory  #history  #computer  #technology  #computerhistorymuseum  #retro  #geek  #tech  #computers  #techhistory  #vintage  #technologyhistory  #computerscience  #trivia  #retrotech  #informationtechnology  #museum  #nerd  #oldtechnology  #oldschool  #apple  #retrocomputing  #computinghistory  #vintagecomputer 
Evening everyone, we all tend to take things for granted nowadays with all our gadgets and gizmos that we use to live our lives.

Let me ask you D.Y.K Photocopying Was Invented 79 years ago today in 1938? In a makeshift lab on the second floor of a rental house, Chester Carlson and his assistant Otto Kornei successfully invent the process that would lead to the photocopier. Carlson had written “10.-22.-38 ASTORIA” on a piece of paper and these became the historic words that were the first photocopied. Ironically, Kornei had so little faith in the invention that within a year he quit working for Carlson and willingly gave up any claims he had on the process. However, Carlson would later gift Kornei 100 shares of the Xerox corporation that would eventually be worth $1 million. Amazing eh? 
1941 - Microprocessor Co-Inventor Mazor Was Born, Stanley Mazor was born in Chicago on October 22, 1941. He studied mathematics and programming at San Francisco State University. He joined Fairchild Semiconductor in 1964 as a programmer and then a computer designer in the digital research department where he developed portions of the Fairchild Symbol computer. In 1969, he joined Intel. In 1977, he began his teaching career in Intel's Technical Training group, and later taught classes at Stanford, University of Santa Clara, KTH in Stockholm and Stellenbosch, SA. In 1984 he was at Silicon Compiler Systems. He co-authored a book on chip design language while at Synopsys 1988-1994. He was invited to present The History of the Microcomputer at the 1995 IEEE Proceedings.

2009 – Microsoft released not only the Windows 7 Operating system, but also Server 2008 R2 Although there are many versions of Windows OS, Windows 7 stood for the 7th kernel update. .
