The Good? 1. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
ARTHUR C. CLARKE, The Lost Worlds of 2001. (Dutton) 2. Men are only so good as their technical developments allows them to be.
GEORGE ORWELL, Inside the Whale and Other Essays, "Charles Dickens," 1940. (Columbia) 3. However far modern science and technics have fallen short of their inherent possibilities, they have taught mankind at least one lesson: Nothing is impossible.
LEWIS MUMFORD, Technics and Civilization, 1934. (Columbia) 4. Science can amuse and fascinate us all, but it is engineering that changes the world.
ISAAC ASIMOV, Isaac Asimov's Book of Science and Nature Quotations, 1988. (S&S) 5. For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.
RICHARD P. FEYNMAN, What Do You Care What Other People Think? (Dutton)
Photo of Feynman lecturing, from PhotoNet, CalTech's archive. 6. There are, as we have seen, a number of different modes of technological innovation. Before the seventeenth century inventions (empirical or scientific) were diffused by imitation and adaption while improvement was established by the survival of the fittest. Now, technology has become a complex but consciously directed group of social activities involving a wide range of skills, exemplified by scientific research, managerial expertise, and practical and inventive abilities. The powers of technology appear to be unlimited. If some of the dangers may be great, the potential rewards are greater still. This is not simply a matter of material benefits for, as we have seen, major changes in thought have, in the past, occurred as consequences of technological advances.
D. S. L. CARDWELL, Concluding paragraph of…...

...example in the following paragraph. Use of this standard APA style “will result in a favorable impression on your instructor” (Smith, 2001). This was affirmed again in 2003 by Professor Anderson (Anderson, Charles & Johnson, 2003). When a source that has two authors is cited, both authors are cited every time. If there are six or more authors to be cited, use the first author’s surname and “et al.” the first and each subsequent time it is cited. When a direct quotation is used, always include the author, year, and page number as part of the citation. A quotation of fewer than 40 words should be enclosed in double quotation marks and should be incorporated into the formal structure of the sentence. A longer quote of 40 or more words should appear (without quotes) in block format with each line indented five spaces from the left margin.1 References Anderson, Charles & Johnson (2003).

...Quotes! "The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return!" Moulin Rouge “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves. Love never fails…” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; 13 “Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 
when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, 
when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess, we have lost our thirst for the waters of life; having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 
we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show Your mastery, where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask You to push back the horizon of our hopes; 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ. Amen" Sir Francis Drake "Worship is my response to what I value most. What I value most is God.  I was made by Him and for Him. He is Awesome beyond Comprehension! I exist for the purpose of reflecting back to God His...

Jobs Quotes

...Steve Jobs' Best Quotes Ever Owen Linzmayer Email 03.29.06 "It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them." -- BusinessWeek, May 25 1998 View Slideshow View Slideshow One of the great things about Steve Jobs is what comes out of his mouth. The CEO of Apple Computer is a master of hype, hyperbole and the catchy phrase. Even when he's trying to talk normally, brilliant verbiage comes tumbling out. Here's a selection of some of the most insanely great things the man has said, organized by topic: innovation and design, fixing Apple, his greatest sales pitches, life's lessons, taking the fight to the enemy and Pixar. On Innovation and Design: "It's rare that you see an artist in his 30s or 40s able to really contribute something amazing." -- At age 29, in Playboy, February 1985 "I've always wanted to own and control the primary technology in everything we do." -- BusinessWeek Online, Oct. 12, 2004 "Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it." -- Fortune, Nov. 9, 1998 "It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them." -- BusinessWeek, May 25 1998 "It comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't...

...even be considered for a potential employer. The article ends with a quote from Joshua Bell, “Open-source is the only way to have redemptive future with our technology—not only to even out its unevenly-distributed nature, but so that we can work to create better devices,” in which we are seeing today. I agree with this article more than I disagree for the simple fact of experiencing first-hand how fast technology has advanced in just my lifetime. Since I owned my first mobile phone I always thought of ideas to make it more useful to a typical lifestyle, although I did not possess the skillset and knowledge to do so at age 10. Ten years later, phones have features I had thought of back then which caused me to become somewhat of a technician myself and meddle with mobile devices. I also agree that someday we will all be technical literate as the article states and will be fixing, repairing, rewiring, overclocking, etc. personal and business devices and machines as that will be a basic requirement from every job. The one and only thing I disagree with in this article is possibly having the world ran or taken over by artificial intelligence seen on sci-fi films. We should know as human beings when creating technology that we have our limits. I believe we will be smart enough to know that too smart is too dangerous to our species and we should never pass our limit if we know what’s best for us. Those same sci-fi films we all have seen and I’m sure we all understand how......

...1. Quotations (how he engages his young audience + rhetorical devices and message) – do not write the paragraphs – just decide what point you want to make (with that quotation) He gets his audience involved by using the word sexy: ‘’ let me further point out how ubiquitously the word ‘sexy’ is used to describe late-model gadgets’’ he makes this whole thing easier for us to understand, by using words we use and say. Another quote that appeals to us as a young audience is: ‘’It’s all one big endless loop. We lie the mirror and the mirror likes us. To friend a person is merely to include the person in our private hall of flattering mirrors.’’ This is one of the issues the youth have, to look good and be liked. And by this quote he light up this. The message of this essay is that.. 2. Write a funnel introduction a. Write an alternative introduction, where you begin with a quotation from Franzen’s essay ‘’Alongside their built-in eagerness (of consumer technology products) to be liked is a built-in eagerness to reflect well on us. Our lives look a lot more interesting when they’re filtered through the sexy Facebook interface. We star in our own movies, we photograph ourselves incessantly, we click the mouse and a machine confirms our sense of sense of mastery.’’ Here he addresses his young self-centred audience. He shows us how the new technology has its effect on them. How it makes them more and more selfish and anti-social. Anti-social in a way, that they......

...John Weatherwax Week 7 En 1320 Research paper New technology break troughs, Research question, less than 30 years ago we had no cell phones If we can talk on a cell phone that is a watch today and where will we be in 30 more years? Just by what I have seen and heard from various producers of cell phones I do believe that the cell phone tech is going to be in the field of a wearable devices the new (in the last few years ) watches are just the start. In the 50’s Dick Tracy had a watch that the new watches mimic so what is next will it implants or projectable it is hard to tell but in my thoughts it will be in the realm of a wearable and possibly a wearable projection device. Articale #1 Cast your mind back to late 2008, when the first Android-powered handset saw the light of day. Obama won his first Presidential election, Apple launched its App Store (the iPhone had appeared the year before), Google announced its own Chrome browser and we got our first look at the company's new mobile OS on the T-Mobile G1. The Android of 2013 is a world away from that 2008 version, where the Android Market was in its infancy, there were no native video playback capabilities and the G1 had no multi-touch support. But Google is going to have to keep innovating and improving its mobile OS to keep the lion's share of the smartphone market. We've taken a peek into the future to consider what Android might look like in the year 2020. With new Android monikers now appearing about......

...new TLF Panel survey conducted on behalf of kids clothing retailer Vertbaudet.co.uk found that four in five parents believe technology and gadgets are good for kids, aiding in their development. The study found that 37 percent of parents asked said that their child spent between one and two hours a day playing with tech gadgets, and 28 percent said between two- and three hours. Moreover, the study found that 38 percent of two- to five-year-olds own an Android tablet, and 32 percent own an iPad; almost a third (32 percent) of these kids also have a mobile phone. The reason behind all this gadget use: over a third of parents (35 percent) said they use tech gadgets to entertain their children because they are convenient, and nearly a quarter (23 percent) because they want their children to be tech-savvy. A 2015 survey of 1,000 British mothers of children aged 2 to 12 found that 85 percent of mums admit to using technology to keep the kids occupied while they get on with other activities. The AO.com survey pointed to children spending on average around 17 hours a week in front of a screen – almost double the 8.8 weekly hours spent playing outside. Wanting our children to tech-savvy is understandable, and the need to keep them entertained will also make sense to many a parent. But we must also weigh up the risks associated with children having too much screen time. In his lecture ‘Managing Screen Time and Screen Dependency’ Dr Aric Sigman argues that “whether it’s Facebook, the......

...Quotes Hold a true friend with both your hands. "Crazy friends make crazy times..." A million memories... A thousand secrets... A hundred inside jokes... One reason... Best friends Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain." “Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today." "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." We are never given dreams without also being given the power to make them come true. Are we not like two volumes of one book? My best friend is the someone who brings out the best of me. A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. A true friend is someone who holds who up when you’re down. A good friend sees the first tear, catches the second and stops the third the reason we’re not sisters, is because our parents couldn’t handle us if we were sisters. you're such an important part of my life you are my companion, my twin, my best friend If you love something, set it free if it comes back, it was meant to be. If it continues to fly, let it soar, have faith that God has something better in store.
