In October 1994, Dr. Nicely contacted Intel support to report the flaw found within their Pentium chip. Due to Intel’s lack of responsibility into addressing and correcting the flaw, Dr. Nicely decided to send an email to several people addressing his discovery of the Pentium “bug”. The email spreads quickly among the computer/ Internet community, one of those who received it was Richard Smith, president of Phar Lap software in Cambridge, MA (Emery, 1996). Phar Lap’s programmers test the error and verified the flaw. This causes Smith to forward Dr. Nicely’s email to Microsoft,
Unit 5 Analysis 1: Pentium Flaw The Pentium flaw was a flaw in a microprocessor that caused incorrect calculations on certain common equations. This caused many people to have issues with doing calculations on their PC. It became public in 1994 when a university researcher was performing calculations and discovered several calculations were being performed incorrectly by his PC while doing double-precision arithmetic. Intel’s initial response was denying that there was a problem, but after enough people said there was a problem, they changed their statement to say that there was indeed a problem, but that it was a small problem that wouldn’t affect many people. Many of Intel’s customers were not satisfied by this answer, and started wanting their chips replaced.
The Pentium Flaw was originally a problem with the Pentiums microprocessor’s math coprocessor, or floating-point unit (FPU). The Pentium Flaw was discovered at Lynchburg College in 1994 when a math professor, by the name of Thomas Nicely, was calculating sum of reciprocals, using his Pentium computer and noticed that the Pentium calculations were slightly off from the theoretical aspects. He tried another computer and ended up with the correct results and then based the source of the problem on the Pentium itself. He sent an inquiry to Intel about their Pentium flaw, when he received no response he politely posted a notice on the internet if others have confirmed his suspicions. Intel’s response to the flaw was "An error is only likely to occur [about] once in nine billion random floating point divides", and that "an average spreadsheet user could encounter this subtle flaw once in every 27,000 years of use."
Nicholas Carr, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” - A Rhetorical Analysis Nicholas Carr starts this very well written article with a rather emotional scene from the 2001 blockbuster movie – A Space Odyssey. In the scene, the main character of the movie; an astronaut named Dave disconnects the memory circuit that controls the artificial brain of the supercomputer HAL which via a malfunction nearly sent Dave to his death. He then goes over to liken that scenario ironically to what he believes the internet is doing to his brain. His central claim simply put is that the internet is adversely affecting his thinking. He says that as a writer, he has ceased to go deep into the sea of words like a scuba diver but now rather skims through various texts on the internet propelled by hyperlinks just like a guy on a jet ski.
Objective; MMPI b. Projective; TAT c. Functional; NEO-PI-R d. Intelligence; Stanford-Binet 4. Which of the following is a multicultural issue for any of the psychological instruments customarily used in the United States? a. Level of acculturation b. Preconceived notions c. Theoretical orientation d. Distortion of information 5. Almost immediately after he developed it, ________ expressed concern about the misinterpretation, overgeneralization, and misuse of his IQ test.
There memory is then often distorted and they fill the gaps in their memory with preconceptions. 2. Anxiety is another influence to EWT. For example Christianson and Hubinette reported that in real life incidents involving high levels of stress, memory can be accurate, detailed and long lasting which is good but there was a test done by Loftus. In the test participants where in a lab where they thought they were going to be discussing things when a man with greasy hands and a pen came in, they heard a hostile discussion, followed by the sound of breaking class and overturned furniture.
Though, the company has acknowledged condemnation for its contractors' labor practices, and for Apple's own environmental and business practices. (Simon, 2007) Apple started existing on April 1, 1976, by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne to retail the Apple I personal computer kit. The kits were hand-built by Wozniak and first revealed to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU,RAM, and basic textual-video chips), which is fewer than what is today reproduced as a complete personal computer. The Apple I exited on sale in July 1976 and was market-priced at $666.66 Steve Jobs began at work on the Apple Lisa in 1978, but in 1982,
The founders of Atari, Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney released the first video arcade game, “Computer Space” in 1970. Within next ten years companies such as Atari, Magnavox, and Coleco released home video game console systems. In 1980, the first 3-dimensional game ever, was released. It was called “Battle Zone.” “Battle Zone” ended up being used by the US government for military training. Four years later, the Nintendo Entertainment System was released, marking the start of the modern gaming era.
There were many reasons why the consolidated terror watch-list was created. The main reason it was created was to help the government and other agencies slow down the time of processing people’s names in the computer. Data governance that would help the organization manage the availability, usability, integrity, and security of the data seems to be missing. It would help increase the security, data quality privacy, and compliance with government regulation. The FBI Terrorist Screening Center was established to standardize and organize information about suspected terrorist between multiple government agencies into a single list to enhance communication between agencies.
Not long after, a much better looking transcript was produced. However, there was a problem because there were fine prints on the report card and the textboxes leave a white space over the fine prints so the spoof could be spotted almost instantly. However, Google was always available to help you out of tough time; after a couple of hours of research, I finally found a way to fabricate the fine prints and my masterpiece was complete. The gagging sound of the printer signaled the end of my mission. Not long after the completion of my sinful project, my
