  • Term Paper On Every Field Of Computers
    1,610 words
    Duane B. Carrington Jr. Mr. CattellRough Draft 11/7/01 Introduction For my term paper the field I chose was computers. I chose this field because I love computers and it's a field on the rise. When doing my research about computers, I tried to stay focused on a few different types of fields. I did this because I thought that doing every different type of field would not help me chose the right field for me. Computers is such a big field that it was almost no problem picking a couple of computer ...
  • New Quantum Computer
    1,472 words
    By the strange laws of quantum mechanics, Folger, a senior editor at Discover, notes, an electron, proton, or other subatomic particle is 'in more than one place at a time,' because individual particles behave like waves, these different places are different states that an atom can exist in simultaneously. Ten years ago, Folger writes, David Deutsch, a physicist at Oxford University, argued that it may be possible to build an extremely powerful computer based on this peculiar reality. In 1994, P...
  • New Electronic Devices And Circuits
    465 words
    Both economic and general physics considerations indicate that the rapid improvements we have come to expect in silicon integrated circuits will saturate around the year 2010. However, fundamental physical laws indicate that it should be possible to compute with a power efficiency that is at least one billion times better than present silicon electronics. [1] The most straightforward way currently known to achieve such efficiencies are to fabricate circuits very much smaller than they are at pre...

  • Electronic Mail
    481 words
    Electronic Mail Instant messages, the communication journey from past to present. During wars like World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and the war in Kosovo, delivering information to the public has been different each time. During World War I, newspapers and long distance telephone calls were the only ways of delivering information to the public. This took at least 1 to 2 weeks before it hit the newspapers so the public was always at least a week behind actual events. In W...
  • Integrated Electronics Costs
    756 words
    The article talks about the advancements in technology during the earlier years, specifically Integrated Electronics. According to Moore, the future of integrated electronics is the future of electronics itself. But before discussing the breakthroughs that this technology offers, let us define what Integrated Electronics means. Integrated Electronics aims to miniaturize electronics equipment to include increasingly complex electronic functions in limited space with minimum weight. This means tha...
  • Electronic Systems
    297 words
    Probably no other advancement since the industrial revolution has changed the way humanity works quite as much as electronics. Nowadays, computers smaller than a briefcase and even pocket sized sit on desks and in people's hands allover the world, they are extremely powerful. They remember information, calculate vital business transactions, create forms, draw diagrams, and perform thousands of other jobs that were once done by hand, or not bothered with at all. This is all became possible becaus...
  • Text From Computers
    462 words
    With regards to the electronic book (e-book) issue, I personally find the text on computer screens harder to understand, less interesting and even less persuasive than when written on paper. I seem to find paper texts easier to comprehend and somewhat more convincing. This may contribute to the different processing abilities students need to use when attempting to read computerized text. Readers tend to develop strategies about how to remember and comprehend printed texts, but undergraduates suc...
  • Features Of Electronic Typewriters

    A Comparison Of Typewriters vs. Computers Essay, A Comparison Of Typewriters vs. Computers TYPEWRITERS: AN ENDANGERED SPECIES? For well over a decade, experts in office automation have predicted the demise of the typewriter. In their view the computer is destined to tale over the word processing role enjoyed by the typewriter for over a century. Yet, a recent report (Fernberg, 1989, 49-50) indicates that electronic typewriter shipments over the last three years averaged about a billion dollars a...
