On approach of the Super Computer..

by Claire 10/06/2009 10:30
There's nothing like a bunch of staggering facts coupled with some Fat Boy Slim music to make you feel wowed and awed. Apparently by 2013 a supercomputer will be built that exceeds the computational capabilities of the human brain.  Maybe then it'll do all the work for us, and we can sit around and watch youtube videos all day.

Is your keyboard slowing you down?

by Rob 22/12/2007 09:10

 

A little story about how the QWERTY keyboard came about.

The first keyboard was created by Christoper Scholes in 1873 to improve caligraphy. However, if a person typed too quickly the keys got stuck and the machine stopped working.  The answer... QWERTY, developed by Scholes to slow you down when you type!

So why do we all use it? Well, some years later Remington - who were sewing machine manufactures at the time - used the QWERTY keyboard for the first typewriters, so as to appeal to existing users of Scholes machine. More people were forced to learn that particular system, and more companies began manufacturing those keyboards until it became the only availabe model.
