Some interesting facts!

Here are some interesting facts according to The Dynamics of Mass Communications:

1) Only 15% of all information is found online!!

Wow maybe the library really does come in handy, we should visit it more often! I sure don't visit the library enough.

2) About 25% of people reported that they smashed their monitors, pounded on their keyboards, or threw their computers on the floor.

People really do get furious with their computers! You did pay for the machine, so why would you kill the poor thing.

3) The computer language consist of two numbers, 1 and 0.

When we type, every letter is a combination of 0's and 1's! Also our on/off button is a 1 and 0, have you ever noticed that?

4) The first computer was the ENIAC, it was 2 stories tall, weighed 30tons, and used about 18,000 vacuum tubes.

Imagine yourself working with that!!!

5) "Spam, Spim, and Spit"

Spam is all over your emails and we've all heard of it. Spim, as the book explains, "is the spam on instant messaging." "Spit, is Spam over Internet Telephony, they fill up a person's voicemail box with dozens of unsolicited messages."

6) WiMax soon taking over Wifi!!

Wifi is short wireless internet access, about 200 feet, while WiMax will provide the entire metropolitan area with wireless internet access. Then, we would be able to access the internet while commuting in the train or just driving around. Cool huh?!

Well thats all for now, stay tuned!!!
