The Origin of Web Browsers!

Jeff Nelson is often considered the "inventor" of Chrome OS, but it is in fact the inventor of Google OS: it began to develop its system several months before the start of work on Chrome. His idea was to develop a system that rotates and Web Apps that would be kind of a big browser on top of a Linux kernel has chosen to Firefox. Ironically, Firefox OS today is not very different from that principle. In 2006, Nelson was developing Web Apps for Google and was particularly frustrated by existing browsers, including their slow start.

 While SSDs are still very expensive, his whole system was placed on a RAM-disk, extremely fast launch Firefox went from 45 seconds to 1 second. The RAM-drives have the disadvantage of losing all their data if the power is off: it was not a problem for Nelson, as were all the apps and Web Apps that all data was backed up online. Even today, Google boasts that Chrome OS prevents any data loss. But at the time, Google executives were not convinced by the proposed Nelson, who resumed certainly a well-known concept, the thin client, but wanted to get him out of businesses and institutions. The main criticism was the lack of an offline mode, a default set from the local cache with HTML5.

 Why Nelson chose WebKit browser rather than Firefox? He does not say, but his choice may be related to the bad reputation of Apple's, she took three years to make open-source WebKit completely. In 2006, WebKit open source was only a few months, while Gecko was eight years. The decision to abandon Opera Presto divided in favor of WebKit web players today, with arguments reminiscent of the time. Some, including Nitot and behind the Mozilla Foundation, worry that the project led by the heavyweights Apple and Google stifles innovation that only competition and guarantee diversity.

They remind Opera is behind many innovations such as tabs, integrated search, gesture shortcuts, "top sites", etc.., A feature that could be erased with this rallying WebKit, piloted by two companies have their own objectives. Others recall with the WHATWG, Apple developers, Mozilla and Opera have greatly evolved in recent years the Web (HTML5, Microdata, etc.), and there is no reason to change that. They point out that while they share the same engine, Safari and Chrome are very different, Google and Apple working on two different JavaScript engines, two different concepts of interface and two different synchronization services. And there is no reason Opera does not continue to distinguish these three aspects.

The source code is available for Photoshop

The source code for Photoshop 1.0.1 is free to download. It remains subject to some rules of use, such as not to make commercial use. If you want to try the adventure ... but it is indeed available. The Computer Museum in Mountain View, California proposed for the site with the consent of the publisher. According to one researcher from IBM; this code, which refers to the year 1990, totaling 128 000 as against 10 million reached today. He leaned on the structure of this little treasure, sometimes with accents admiring its clarity. He found also that the approaches found in the current version of Photoshop.

 The Computer Museum recalls the story of the birth of Photoshop, born "Display" and the efforts of both Knoll brothers, Thomas and John. The first student was the second employee at Industrial Light & Magic of George Lucas. Thomas wrote this program in 1987 to manipulate images without objective of making a commercial product, simply a tool for both brothers.

 This potential is revealed over the next year in the evolution of software, which then became "Photoshop". The first company to show interest was Barneyscan, manufacturer of scanners, which took 200 copies of the software - rechristened Barneyscan XP - to include with its peripherals. Adobe bought one license in April 1989 and marketed the following year under its final name. 3 million copies were sold in 10 years. The software was written in Pascal for the Mac, with some portions in assembler for the 68000 processor when good performances were necessary in the performance of tasks.

The Camera Panoramic Balls

Ricoh has benefited from the CAMERA & PHOTO IMAGING SHOW 2013 show dedicated to the photo, which was held recently in Tokyo to show a prototype camera original, the "360 ° Camera Innovation." Designed by Ricoh Innovations, a research laboratory located in Ricoh Silicon Valley, and quickly unveiled at CES in January, the camera takes a single shot the 360 ° panoramic pictures.

For this he adopts a particular design, "Y", with two fish-eye lenses 180 ° photographing the scene on each side. The camera then combines the two images obtained just to do that. Ricoh showed the results of the pictures at the exhibition in the form of panoramic images that appear on the screen of an iPod in the form of "balls" that Ricoh called "Panorama Balls", in which visitors could move with the finger ... It was not only possible to look around as a single panoramic picture, but you could also look up and down the stage.

 If Ricoh is still stingy information on this project, we do know that the camera should have a WiFi module to transmit the photos taken with a mobile terminal, such as an iPhone or iPad. They will display images and change the view to see another part of the image. The manufacturer would also include a feature panoramic video. But it would be contrary to the absence of any standard in this area, making it more difficult assembly operations and limit opportunities for exchange. Ricoh is still in the research stage and has not yet decided whether the prototype will be realized one day a marketed product, although the presence of two shows suggests that there is a good chance to see the camera soon in stores.
