We are only at the beginnings of digital photography - Most cameras are only now approaching the resolving power of film. What will be really interesting is when imaging devices become readily available that far surpass what traditional cameras have been able to capture. Take this one for example. It takes panoramas which are 21,500 pixels wide. I'm guessing this will be inside my cellphone one day - maybe not too far from now...
On the 12th of August 1981 - 25 years ago - the Peronal Computer was born with the launch of IBM's broadly available 5150 PC. This was the first home computer (see above)... some of what followed looked like this:
SX64: The first portable - no battery and 14kg - the kepboard was also the lit to the box
COMX 35: 35k RAM - this processor was used for several viking and voyager
KC-85/3: The German Democratic Republic Model: 16K RAM could be upgraded to remarkable 64K
1989: VEB RFT Mikroelektronik Mühlhausen: 64K
Compaq LTE: notebook which was only 3kg in weight and could be put on a desktop module:
iMac: Colour "Bondi Green" - late 90s - the first one to incorporate design:
...... from then onwards the range of PC's on offer increased like crazy..... whatcha u using????
Things have not been too well on my end and i surfed the web like a men does when he sees no way out. After I sat in my kitchen ODing on drinks and medication I thought there wouldn't be a solution to this one till I surfed this site.... the happy customer testimonials were reassuring and I thought f*7%K it. Then I remembered the Devil’s Advocate quote:
LOOK, but don't touch, TOUCH, but don't taste, TASTE, but don't swallow.
Well, I touched .. I did taste ... and sold my soul. It does taste good.... reassuring... I am not alone. We want your soul.com
It's a screensaver (I know, whatever, but this one is cool) that makes your shitty dell look like a cool flip clock. Oh and it's free. I saw this on the screen of a workstation in Seoul and I knew I had to find out how to get it on my laptop... and Lo, I found it at last.
P.S. It's made by a very cool Japanese individual named Yuji Adachi who also has an online record shop called Disk Reunion.
Link to an interview with a guy who has downloaded 900,000 songs. He's aiming to download a copy of every song ever recorded, to save them from islamic terrorists who are going to destroy them. I get the feeling the whole interview is made up, but see what you think. I like the sound of his Download Den anyway...
