Issues: * How should Home Computer classify the disposal of the assets of the video monitor operations? Explain. * Is the video monitor operations involved any impaired? Explain. * How should Home Computer classify the disposal of the assets of the printer operations? Explain * Is the printer operations involved any impaired? Explain.

Analysis: Home Computer is a publicly held manufacturer and retailer of the computer and it has three business segments which are computer manufacturing, printer manufacturing and retail store distribution. However on February 3, 2002, Home Computer wanted to discontinue its video monitor operations at the Seattle and then establishment of a replacement facility in Sacramento. According to ASC 360-10-35-21(f); A long-lived asset (asset group) shall be tested for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that its carrying amount may not be recoverable -- A current expectation that, more likely than not, a long-lived asset (asset group) will be sold or otherwise disposed of significantly before the end of its previously estimated useful life. The term more likely than not refers to a level of likelihood that is more than 50 percent. Since Home Computer wanted to move the video monitor operation to CA, the discontinue operation of the video monitor is satisfied to take the recoverability test and to see if any impairment occurs. According to ASC 360-10-35-17, impairment occurs when the sum of expected future net cash flows is less than the asset’s carrying amount. In this case, the current book value of the video monitor operations is $8 million, and expect future cash flows $3.5 million. So the expect future cash flow is less than the carrying amount and my conclusion is that there is impairment occurred.
According to ASC 360-10-35-23, for purposes of recognition and measurement of an…...

...Isla’s teacher in France told me Isla wasn’t listening or following rules, to the point of disrupting the class. After I got over my shock, and myself, I simply brought it up with Isla and the situation was magically resolved. I can only hope it’s always that easy. Review of Home by Yann-Arthus Bertrand I often wonder if it would be possible to do any kind of serious study into urban morphology without the help of Google Earth. I know it has been indispensable to my studies, perhaps as indispensable as the microscope is to biologists. Google Earth is our macroscope, it allows us to see what is too large to see with the naked eye. But no matter how useful satellite photography is, you cannot truly see depth without aerial photography, and the master of aerial photography is without a doubt French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, famous for enormous coffee-table books filled with photography so rich as to be overwhelming. Arthus-Bertrand has made the jump to high-definition cinematography and directed a "documentary" (there is really no accurate way to describe this film) called Home, which was released free of charge on the Internet a few weeks ago. You canwatch it on YouTube or download it from your favorite BitTorrent source. The film is awe-inspiring. Here are some still images I extracted. The film is a tour of Earth's ecologies, starting from......

Unit 1. Assignment 1. Home Computer Analysis

...Fortunately my home computer is already running Windows 7 ultimate x64 edition so there isn’t anything for me to upgrade to yet, unless windows 8 gets released soon but even then I won’t probably upgrade. My computer is home built and has an Intel E8400 3.0 Gig Dual Core processor with 4 gigs of DDR3 and 2 Terabytes of hard drive space. I’m also running an NVidia GTX 560 TI overclocked video card and hooked up to a 50 Mbps cable modem. I built this computer a few years ago and I built it for gaming so it’s not top of the line anymore but more than supports any operating system you can throw at it. Let’s suppose I had windows 7 Home Premium and wished to upgrade. Luckily my computer can easily support any version of windows 7 so all I would have to do is run the Windows Anytime Upgrade and upgrade to which version I wished. Since each version is a superset of the higher version you can easily upgrade to higher versions. Also since windows 7 places the entire OS on the hard disk it isn’t an upgrade in the traditional since, it’s just a matter of activating features that are already there. If I had a 32 bit version and wished to go to a 64 bit version I wouldn’t however be able to do an anytime upgrade. When your going from different bit versions you need to do a clean install to install the whole 32 or 64 bit version. This is the only time I would need to do a clean install, if I wanted to go back to x32 for some strange reason. Doing this of course would limit the amount of......

...The History of Computers http://inventors.about.com/library/blcoindex.htm "Who invented the computer?" is not a question with a simple answer. The real answer is that many inventors contributed to the history of computers and that a computer is a complex piece of machinery made up of many parts, each of which can be considered a separate invention. This series covers many of the major milestones in computer history (but not all of them) with a concentration on the history of personal home computers.

...Introduction:- Computer is an electronic device which can take input from the user and process this input data and if need, store data or information on storage devices and give output on output devices. It follow the instructions us it is which we input. It takes input through Keyboard, mouse, etc and then it processes the input data and give output on display screen and store data if need. Desktop Computer:- Mostly called personal computer (PC), design to fit completely on a typical desk of office or home. It mainly comes with a monitor, a minitower or horizontal casing. Today, mostly Casing contains processor, hard disk in gigabytes, built-in modem, LAN port, USB ports and CD-ROM. Over the past few years. CPU processing speed has been increasing processing speed can be increase by adding capable RAM, capable BUS, high processor which have high processing cycle, hence more heat is also produced we use heat sinks and fans for the removal of heat from the computer as higher temperature can cause severe damage to the computer, fans are noisy and aren’t much effective so the new trend is liquid cooling. It’s just like a radiator installed for cooling, a liquid is circulated in the heat sink attached to the processor heat is transferred from the processor to the liquid is then transferred to the radiator the liquid is cooled down there and then again circulated to the heat sink. It’s less noisy as compared to fan as high speed processor clocked at higher speed need......

Sec280 Devry Threats to Home Computer Systems

...Threats to Home Computer Systems I sometimes imagine a way of life as simple as sitting on a rock, watching the sky, tending to a cave. Could there have been anything complicated in those times, many millennia ago? In fact, there was: security. It must have been an enormous stressor to guard your cave dwelling from other primitive beings looking to gain something they were not entitled to. Maybe they suspected personal items such as weaponry or stored food, or to take a peek at your secret glyphs—directions to a source of something valuable. Today, we may not live in caves, and as such our secret information may be stored in sophisticated machinery rather than drawings on cave walls. However, human nature to steal and protect is still as common as it was in early humans. It was not so long ago that the home computer was in its primitive stage. In a few decades, this “advanced typewriter/calculator” has evolved into a way of life, along with its own set of threats to our security. These threats can be categorized as either software or behavioral, and can certainly be combined. Social engineering is a behavioral type of threat. It does not need to apply just to computers. Some social engineers call you on the telephone attempting to get you to reveal personal information, such as your social security number. But this can be done through email, as well. You may think the email is from someone you trust and you respond with information, such as passwords. Passwords,......

...Essays and Research Documents The Research Paper Factory JoinSearchBrowseSaved Papers Home Page » Computers and Technology Tablet In: Computers and Technology Tablet Tablet computer iPad (1st generation), a tablet computer A tablet computer, or simply tablet, is a mobile computer, larger than a mobile phone or personal digital assistant, integrated into a flat touch screen and primarily operated by touching the screen and instead of using a physical keyboard it often uses an onscreen virtual keyboard. A tablet computer may be connected to a keyboard with a wireless link or a USB port. Convertible notebook computers have an integrated keyboard that can be hidden by a swivel joint or slide joint, exposing only the screen for touch operation. Hybrids have a detachable keyboard so that the touch screen can be used as a stand-alone tablet. Booklets include dual-touchscreens, and can be used as a notebook by displaying a virtual keyboard in one of them. An early information tablet concept, named the Dynabook, was described by a Xerox scientist Alan C Kay, in his Aug 1972 paper: A Personal Computer for children of all Ages, the paper proposes a touch screen as a possible alternative means of input for the device. The first commercial portable electronic tablets appeared at the end of the 20th century. In 2010, Apple Inc. released the iPad which became the first mobile computer tablet to achieve worldwide commercial success. The iPad used technology similar to......

Home Computer Anaylsis

...NT1230 6/22/2014 Home Computer Analysis in this assignment I will be evaluating the configurations of my personal computer and determine whether it is a candidate for a clean install, migration, or If its unable to utilize the operating system. My personal computer is running on windows 8.1 seeing as it is a higher grade operating system than windows 7 I would assume that it is possible for me to run just about anyone one of the different editions of windows 7 on my personal computer with ease. If I wanted to run windows 7 on my computer I would have to perform a clean install because it isn’t possible to perform migration on a computer that has windows 8 already installed on it you cannot go backwards with a newer operating system only forward so the next step for me to take would be in the future when and if it is possible is to use migration for my system files on windows 8 to windows 9 and to upgrade my windows 8 to windows 9. I will admit now that when I first got this computer I didn’t like windows 8 all that much and I was considering downgrading it back to windows 7 just because I didn’t like the whole setup of windows 8 it feels like it should be more setup for a tablet and I don’t have a touch screen slide screen on my laptop so I don’t see the point but now that I’ve been in school for a little while and have had time to play around with it I definitely feel as though windows 8 has grown on me. I’ve figured out how to work it and I’ve especially come to......

...Warren Thompson February 21, 2015 Introduction of Network Mr. James Wheatley – Teacher Write a half page essay discussing the differences between a Wireless B, Wireless G and Wireless N router. Give a price report of all three items at an online store, and decide which router would be best for your household. The answer is both yes and no. Yes, I have been able to keep in touch with family, friends, and colleagues in far-flung corners of the planet with ease, and have managed to pull off projects with teams spread across different cities in timescales that previously would have been unthinkable. All this feeds my continued use of email. But whilst these undoubted benefits are the reasons why I continue to email, it is not without its own cost. Most importantly, as the above analysis shows, email eats my time just as it likely eats yours. And unlike Darwin's famous 15,000 letters (penned with thought, and now the subject of the Darwin Correspondence Project in my university library in Cambridge), three-minute email exchanges do not deliver communication with any depth and as such are not intellectually valuable in their own right. And we all recognize that email has its addictive side. Each time a message arrives there's just the chance that it might contain something exciting, something new, something special, a new opportunity. Like all effective behavioral reinforcement schedules, the reward is very intermittent: Maybe one in 100 emails contain something I really...

Home Computer Analysis

...HOME COMPUTER ANALYSIS I did a home computer analysis on my own computer at my home. I concluded that my system is a great choice to have an upgrade or clean install to Windows 7 Ultimate. My computer is the eMachines EL1358G-51W Desktop PC Athlon II X2 220 (2.80GHz) 3GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium. After going through everything it met all the qualifications to have a Windows Anytime Upgrade to Windows Ultimate. My computer has a 1TB hard drive with 842GB still available. It is currently running the Premium package currently with no issues to speak of, and that is under the Dual Core 64-bit version. It uses NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE with integrated video graphics card the video card supports DirectX 11. The CPU has 3GB of total memory. Using the upgrade advisor my system came back showing that it met the qualifications and is ready for upgrade to Ultimate if I was ready to do so. Just one little mishap to that was that I would have needed to pay 140 dollars to invest in that upgrade, which at this time I can’t really afford to do, but when that time comes that I am able to afford to do that I will go ahead and make the move up to the Ultimate, just so I can say I have the best of the best. Can I Upgrade After looking at the information you provided for me, I believe your company’s system can be improved with us doing a clean installation to our Windows 7 Enterprise edition.

The system includes a small control box that controls water temperature, pressure and run time. By systematically controlling these factors, employees can be both trained and monitored in their hand washing frequency and technique. Periodic reports stored on the computer and linked to the Internet can be produced to indicate the number of times per month employees have been washing their hands, and the estimated savings that the system has created through efficient water use. This system has limited value to business managers because they are expensive to install and lease, and do not necessarily increase employee compliance. They provide managers the ability to track usage, but do not help control day-to-day hand washing compliance individually or immediately.
