Evening all, you find me ready with your daily dose of Trivia!. . D.Y.K First TV Station West of Mississippi Went live on January 22nd 1947? KTLA, the first commercial television station west of the Mississippi River, begins operation in Hollywood, California. Bob Hope emceed the inaugural broadcast. A total of 322 televisions are in the Los Angeles viewing area. . 1968 - First Lunar Module Test Launch, Apollo 5 lifts off carrying the first unmanned Lunar module into space. . 1984 - Commercial Introduces the Macintosh, Apple Computer broadcasts their now-famous “1984” commercial introducing the Macintosh, during the third quarter of Super Bowl XVIII. It was the first and last time the ad was truly broadcast. However, it is a little-known piece of trivia that the ad was aired one other time at 1 AM on December 15, 1983 in Twin Falls, Idaho, but only so that the advertisement could be submitted to award ceremonies for that year. A 30-second version also ran in theaters starting January 17, but it was the broadcast during the Super Bowl that people really took notice of. . 1998 – Microsoft reached an agreement with the US Department of Justice regarding Internet Explorer on Windows 95. In the agreement, computer manufacturers could have the IE link removed. This was a small step in the antitrust suit against Microsoft and using bundled software and drive out competition. The Microsoft antitrust trial would begin on May 18, 1998 and go until November 5, 1999. . Thanks for stopping by hope you enjoyed your time here and you found it interesting 👏👍🏼. . . . #TerrierByteIT #Wifeidge #computerhistory #computer #technology #tech #history #retro #computerhistorymuseum #geek #vintage #trivia #retrotech #computerscience #techhistory #technologyhistory #oldtechnology #computers #nerd #computinghistory #oldschool #informationtechnology #oldcomputer #internethistory #thisdayinhistory #retrocomputing #historyoftechnology #retrocomputer #oldtech #vintagecomputers

The Standard Meditation Algorithm. ... Meditation (a.k.a. Attention Regulation Training) ^^^ looks a bit like this. It has been practiced and refined over many thousands of years within numerous traditions, by secular types as well as those of faith (it really doesn't matter if you are one of the other  I'm secular myself). At the heart of every meditation practice is something I call the Standard Meditation Algorithm. At a high level, what you need to do is (1) focus on something - typically we use the breath, or the sensations coming from the body, but there are many other options, I'm writing plenty about this in future so stay tuned (2) watch how the mind quite naturally resists staying focused (it's crazy in there some days) - it WILL wander, this is 100% expected and (3) restore your attention as the mind wanders - maybe 10 times, maybe 100, maybe a thousand! It doesn't really matter if it wanders, what matters is that you bring it back. Once you're done, you can check in with yourself and notice the effects. MANY people find this process pretty relaxing, often finding that their focus has improved (such an important quality of mind for a programmer). . You can try it right now. Close your eyes, relax your body deliberately with a few sighs or yawns and just focus on the next ten breaths you take - about a minute or so (you can count breaths). Just feel where you notice each breath in the body, whether it's fast or slow, deep or shallow, in the nose or in the belly. Don't worry about getting it right - treat it as an experiment. See how you feel after - perhaps even just a little more relaxed? Maybe, maybe not but be curious. Either way, you just (briefly) meditated. . People who train their minds like this often report an increased ability to notice when they have become distracted - which is great, as part of the process of becoming more focused is noticing those moments when you have fallen down a rabbit hole of thought! Often they will report a better relationship with stress, improved sleep, decreased muscular tension and so on (I've sat in on thousands of meditation experiences and it AMAZES me how reliable this is in all my students...

SEATTLE – After a year of testing with its own employees, “Amazon Go” opens its store that lets you browse, grab and walk out — skipping the checkout line, but not the bill — to the public Monday. . To shop in the store, which is about the size of a 7-Eleven, customers must first download the Amazon Go app and link it to a payment method. Then they open the app on their phone and scan it at the four turnstiles to enter the 1,800 square foot store. . Once inside, cameras in the ceiling, sensors on the shelves and a massive amount of computing power track every item they pick up and what goes into their pockets or bags. . As they move through the store, each item is added to their digital tab. If they pick something up but then put it back, the store knows it and removes the item from their virtual shopping basket. . To check out — there's a reason it's called Just Walk Out technology. You just walk out. . The company has no plans to open any more Amazon Go stores or export the technology for the time being, despite intense interest from the public. . Critics note the disruption could also end up meaning fewer jobs as lines of checkout clerks give way to smart stores that do their own checking out. Amazon says the jobs are being transferred to other needs of the store. . (2 part video | Source: NBC, USA Today)

Já pensou como é que seu computador consegue fazer tanta coisa?? 🤔 Começamos hoje uma série para explicar o que acontece dentro dele! E nosso primeiro personagem não poderia ser diferente: o processador! 😀 . Comparando com a gente, podemos dizer que o processador é o CÉREBRO 🧠 do equipamento. Basicamente, você pergunta pra ele quanto são 2 + 2, e ele não exita em responder: 4! 👏👏 Parece pouco, mas hoje em dia um computador normal consegue fazer essa operação cerca de 10 BILHÕES DE VEZES POR SEGUNDO! 😱 Por isso escolhemos o computador basicamente pelo processador: quanto melhor, mais rápido e eficiente é o seu equipamento - associado às demais peças, é claro.🚀🚀 . Hoje existem dois principais fabricantes de processadores para PC: A Intel, que faz os famosos Core i3, i5, i7 e o novíssimo Core i9 para os gamers, além dos Celeron de baixo custo e os Pentium, voltado para usuários básicos, e a AMD, que tem muita história mas estava em baixa no mercado nos últimos anos, sendo competitiva apenas no segmento de baixo custo, mas voltou com tudo ano passado com o lançamento dos surpreendentes Ryzen's. . Quer saber qual o processador ideal pra você? Mesmo com um processador possante seu computador vive rastejando? 🐢 Conte com a gente! Vamos te dar a melhor dica para que seu computador possa voar! 🛫 . #senratecnologia #manutençãodecomputadores #tecnologia #technology #processador #intel #amd

What an awesome day to be a health science teacher! We hosted a da Vinci robotic surgery training unit today and we had students from health science, robotics, and engineering test drive two different consoles. I let my son miss an hour of school too so he could check it out so glad he had that opportunity today! The technology was amazing and so were the reps! Thank you so much to Tyler and Kaila for an educational and inspirational day! #health #science #healthscience #teacher #mindset #mindblowing #technology #surgery #austin #davinicirobotics #dshs #iamdsisd

Duke Performances presents World Premiere: The _Oper& by @svpko & Bill Seaman Directed by Jim Findlay Performed by @loreleiensemble Thu, Mar. 8 at 8 PM in the Von Der Heyden Studio Theater at Rubenstein Arts Center. Is technology making or breaking our world? That question is central to THE_OPER&, a bold new opera to be developed and premiered at Duke University that uses the high-drama framework of opera and advanced technology to explore ideas of apocalypse, renewal, and survival in the modern age. During each performance, a computer system preloaded with video, sound, and poetic text fragments generates an original world, specific to the room and audience. An allegory for our uncertain times and an examination of our interface with the technology we create, THE_OPER& asks essential questions about the kind of future we may pursue.
