Weekly Blog #3

This week, we did our last group project. Our project was to research about types of computers. Our group did Mac OSX 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. Over all I learned the evolution of computers! This is the last week we get to work with our old groups sadly): I’ll miss Nick and Navi.. LOL right (; but I am ready to meet my new group 😀

There’s a depressing poem which if read backwards become optimistic

Lost Generation.

I’m a part of Lost Generation

and I refuse to believe that

I can change the world

I realize this may be a shock but

“Happiness comes from within”

is a lie, and

“Money will make me happy”

So in thirty years I’ll tell my children

They are not the most important thing in my life

My employer will know that

I have my priority straight because

Work

Is more important than

Family

I tell you this

Once upon a time

Families stay together

But this will not be true in my era

This is a quick fix society

Experts tell me

Thirty years from now I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce

I do not concede that

I will live in a country of my own making

In the future

Environmental destruction will be the norm

No longer can it be said that

My peers and I care about this earth

It will be evident that

My generation is apathetic and lethargic

It is foolish to presume that

There is hope

And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.

 

Kernel – it is the main component of most computer operating system.

Sixth Sense 

Six Sense is a prototype for a portable projector, camera, and computer. Although as amazing as that sounds, people are still developing it. Six Sense can be used anywhere. it can be used on a wall, thin air you name it! It is controlled by your finger tips. Literally. There is a projector and a motion capturer that is attached to you. The projector displays any image, info etc. that you desire. And the motion capturer captures the motion of your fingers. Here are some photos of what it would look like.

In my third week of IT9/10 we did a project about Hardware. We were assigned to research about a topic with Hardware. It was sort of a review for the test we’re having for tomorrow 😛 Yes I know doesn’t sound fun at all.
