    early 44 years ago computer hardware was in an entirely different place than it is now. The levels of performance don’t even fit on the same scale. The anniversary of the Apollo 11moon landing is upon us, and those brave space pioneers got by without a 3GHz multi-core CPU. The guidance computer used on the Apollo 11 mission ran at only 1.024 MHz.

    The moon landing was the height of technological achievement at the time, and some of the rocket technology is still relevant today. That computer, though, has been left in the dust. In fact, it was well and truly obsolete a few years after the landing.

    The Intel 8086 came about roughly ten years after the Apollo landing, marking the beginning of x86. Apollo 11’s computer had 4 registers — essentially slots for holding numeric values. The 8086 boosted that to eight 16-bit registers.

    The IBM PC XT ran the next version of that chip, the famous 8088. This computer ran at 4.077MHz, which sounds incredibly slow by today’s standards, but is still four times faster than the Apollo 11computer. The XT also packed in eight times the memory used on Apollo 11.

    The Apollo 11 guidance computer actually had some impressive software features for a system that didn’t even run a graphical interface. It could multitask up to 8 different operations, but it didn’t work the way we think of multitasking. Today’s operations use preemptive multitasking that allows the OS to distribute computing resources as needed. On Apollo 11, programs were in charge and had to give control back to the OS periodically. A kind of virtual machine was used to allow developers to mix hardware-level instructions with virtual machine commands within the same assembler code.

    Inputting commands required translating the English words into “verb noun pairs,” which could be input as numbers. There was a handy sign in the cabin as a reminder. To top it all off, none of the computer’s systems were software upgradeable. All the code was stored in read-only memory. Several years after Apollo 11, Apollo 14 was forced to manually input the code to patch a system malfunction — it took 90 minutes just to type it in.

    Maybe your computer is a little sluggish, and your smartphone is a couple years old, but you have it better than those astronauts

    Compete with Extra Ability

    Lapse of more than half a year since the launch of the One X is quite a success, then give refreshment and HTC launched the One X + (plus). With increasing processor speeds and provide extra capacity storage media and batteries, this series is expected to remain competitive amid the onslaught of newer-generation smartphone.

    u5-435-HTCKonstruksi HTC One X + is still the same as the previous series that uses materials that are designed in the form of polycarbonate unibody. Design which has the characteristics of this matte than more resistant to fingerprints, it also provides a more stable grip. The face is still protected by Gorilla Glass. The difference, he had to use the second generation of the tough glass. In general, no different from the appearance of the HTC One X and HTC One X +.

    Because of the similarity of physical appearance as well, screen HTC One X + also still uses Super IPS LCD2 with a diagonal size of 4.7 _ and a resolution of 720 × 1280 pixels. PCplus still like the quality of the display screen is a slick, well-balanced color saturation, and brightness levels are adequate, especially when used in the sun. One thing that is steady on the screen HTC One X + is a point of view that could be considered extraordinary. Even at extreme angles, especially the color display looks as if no change / fade at all.

    The main focus of the HTC One X + is increased in order to support some important aspects of its overall performance. First, Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC that is used to work faster at 1.7 GHz: 200 MHz faster than its predecessor series. Second, a 64GB media capacity shelf, making it very relieved to save anything. Last but not least is a plus 300mAh battery capacity 2100mAh so so.

    Any of the software, HTC One X + is equipped with Jelly Bean Android 4.1.1 and Sense UI 4 +. Although the display is still the same, but the Sense UI 4 + is already avail-owned Butter Jelly Bean Project. This combination makes the HTC One X + runs very smoothly, especially navigating between menus. What is interesting, because it’s UI design, features Google Now owned by Jelly Bean is quite hidden. The trick is to press and hold the Home button for a few seconds, came the new assistant feature the Android smart style.

    If the previous HTC One X is an upscale line of smartphones, the series “plus” is easily dethrone the predecessor position.

  • Mozilla Labs has outlined an experiment it’s conducting in improving the personalisation web publishers can offer readers who browse their sites using Firefox.

    The outfit says it’s been working on the idea since last year, when it “conducted a series of experiments in which a user’s browsing history could be matched with interests in categories like technology, sports and cooking.”

    In return for opting in to the trial, lab rats were offered “insight into how they spend time online.”

    Mozilla Labs is now wondering “what if these interests were also available for the user to share with the websites they visit to get a better, more personalized browsing experience” so that “content creators and consumers could benefit from Web-based interests”?

    Here’s one scenario the outfit has imagined as resulting from this line of thinking:

    “For example, let’s say Firefox recognizes within the browser client, without any browsing history leaving my computer, that I’m interested in gadgets, comedy films, hockey and cooking. As I browse around the Web, I could choose when to share those interests with specific websites for a personalized experience. Those websites could then prioritize articles on the latest gadgets and make hockey scores more visible.”

    Some publishers have already pressed the API for this kind of thing into service, according to the Mozilla Blog, but the code is not in the wild and is being tested – technically and conceptually – as Mozilla figures out how people will react to websites that dynamically change content based on readers’ past behaviours.

    One example of successful personalisation mentioned in the posts announcing the initiative is The Guardian’s offer to ensure its readers see no news about the birth of George Alexander Louis Windsor. That’s a service many will doubtless enjoy. Whether such personalisation can result in readers choosing only to encounter lines of inquiry and opinions they already agree with, and therefore deciding to consume media that re-enforces their feelings rather than offering broader perspectives, is a wider debate for another day. Or the comments.
