Some Interesting facts related to technology (Interesting Technology Facts)
Email existed even before the World Wide Web www.
Until a few years ago, email was not like the present form. You can watch the interesting clip “How to send an Email Database-1983” on YouTube. It has explained how to send emails. Computers and rotary telephones were required to connect to the micro net service. This was the time before the World Wide Web. At that time there was no URL, only numbers were the best web page. The web page number for the email was 7776.
The Qwerty layout keyboard was designed to slow you down.
There are two theories related to this.
First principle – makes sense when you look at a manual typewriter. If someone types too fast, the keys will get jammed. The QWERTY keyboard keeps normal alphabets away from each other and makes typists slower. In today’s era, the Qwerty keyboard is understood as the medium of fast typing.
The second principle – that the telegraph operators designed the QWERTY layout, as it makes Morse code easier to understand. There is no reason for this layout to be kept in that position, but this layout is stuck and there remains opposition to changing it. People have got used to the Qwerty keyboard. If you want to change the keyboard, you can go to the language settings to adopt a faster work layout or get a new work keyboard.
Changing the font can save printer ink
Changing the font can indeed save printer ink. Not all Fonts are created the same. People create different types of fonts for some reason – with this you can broadcast a special message, make decorations, and establish your point. If using lighter fonts (with lighter strokes), less is used per page. Leave aside the ink tank and toner-based laser printer, and assuming you are printing only with inkjet printers, you can save 10% ink by using lighter fonts.
92% of the world’s currency is digital
This means that the currency you earn, trade, and use to buy goods or services is available only on computers and hard drives. Only 8% of the global currency is physical currency. Every kind of black money is included in this 8 percent. Looking at these figures, you may think that this is absurd, but if you consider it properly, you will find that most of the large transactions are done electronically. Banks also protect currency electronically. This 92% includes all types of transactions done by debit/credit card and wire transfer.
Domain name registrations were free until 1995
At that time, no one knew how the Internet could change the world. Initially, people had the chance to get the right to every kind of domain name. In 1995, Network Solutions Company was given the right to collect money from people for the domain name. It was also expensive. Typically, 2 years of registration started at $100. 30% of this amount went to the National Science Foundation to create an ‘Internet Intellectual Infrastructure Fund’. This fee was changed in the year 1997 and a sum of $70 was charged for 2 years of registration.
Russia built a computer running on water in 1936
Computers used to be visual systems of computation before transistors came into being. It used levers, pearls, and axles. They were like an energy source. In 1936 Vladimir Lukyanov designed a similar system. He used water to make computers. The images of the Lukyanov computer show a complex system of interconnected tubes filled with water. Taps and plugs were arranged to change the flow of water. The result was measured by measuring the water level in the tube. It was water integrated and designed to solve the problem of concrete cracking.
In 1956 the weight of 5 MB data was 1 ton
In the year 1956, IBM launched RAMAC. It was the first computer with such a thing as a hard drive. Now the hard drive is interpreted as something that uses a magnetic disk and is used to access and write data. Punch cards and magnetic tapes (which used to store data in a sequence) were all enjoyed by accessible hard drives. RAMAC stands for Random Access Method of Accounting and Control.
The entire cabinet weighed more than 10 kilograms and 5 megabytes (MB) of data were present in 50 massive aluminum disks coated with magnetic iron oxide. The disc rotated at a speed of 1200 rpm (rpm). The machine was rented at the rate of $ 3200 per month.
15-year-old teenager hacked NASA in 1999
Between August and October of 1999, Jonathan James used his skills as a hacker. It blocked data from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), a division of the US Department of Defense. It accessed more than 3000 messages, usernames, and passwords of DTRA’s employees. He obtained the source code for the International Space Station to control temperature and humidity. NASA had to shut down computers for 3 weeks. NASA had to spend about $ 41000 to overcome this problem. Jonathan was sentenced when he was 16. He told that age does not matter for computers.
Special software help to deal with miscreants
Wikipedia’s mission is to provide free information to everyone with internet access. From the internet, anyone can sign-up and edit their pages. Continuously monitoring changes proves to be a challenge for Wikipedia. In this case, special computer programs are used. A computer program like Clubeot-NG keeps track of any page changes. If the rogue tries to change things, the program immediately returns to the correct version. Circa 1941 bot (computer program) authorized to be used on page 38,818,162 Wikipedia.
ABC keyboard in graphing calculator
There was a period before smartphones when digital diaries and advanced calculators were famous. They could store simple data and complete calculations. These enabled students to solve various equations for algebra and calculus parity. In that period, it was allowed to carry an advanced calculator in the exam hall. If you had a QWERTY keyboard on one of your devices, it was banned because it was in the traditional language of the computer. Texas Instruments introduced a graphing calculator for the keyboard with alphabetical layouts
