Computer Programming Is a Dying Art - Newsweek

Newsweek
Computer Programming Is a Dying Art
Newsweek
Writing code is a terrible way for humans to instruct computers. Lucky for us, new technology is about to render programming languages about as useful as Latin.
Austin Peterman's insight:

It's nice to see that someone is trying to make coding easier for the masses. I personally don't know a whole lot about coding but what I could do, I can't remember how to do anymore. It is just really hard to remember all of the commands to tell the computer what to do. I, personally, am really happy that someone is trying to make coding easier for people.

Austin Peterman's insight:

Not only do I love it when Apple is getting beaten at something, but when the company beating them is Google? That is shear poetry to my ears. I am very happy that Google is surpassing companies left and right all the way to the top! Google is truly a wonderful company not only in the products they release, but also in the work force! They have also been ranked as the #1 best place to work! I am also very happy to see Apple's empire start to crumble away.

Google Just Got Hit with a Major Class Action Lawsuit - The Wire

Google Just Got Hit with a Major Class Action Lawsuit - The Wire | Computer engineering | Scoop.it
The Wire Google Just Got Hit with a Major Class Action Lawsuit The Wire Hagens Berman, a consumer rights law firm, has filed a class-action lawsuit against Google, claiming "the search engine giant illegally monopolized, and financially and...
Austin Peterman's insight:

This guy, Hagens Berman, is just another idiot trying to find a loop hole through "the system" in hopes of making it big by getting a lot of money from Google. And if this guy is actually trying to fight for smaller, less well known search engines, then it is the other search engines' fault for not getting the job done as well as Google. You can't make a crummy product and complain and wine when your product doesn't sell because someone else has a better, more powerful product. Plus, Hagens is probably just another guy working for Microsoft trying to knock Google down in hopes of making Bing the only search engine used. Give it up Microsoft! Bing sucks!

This is sort of interesting but unfortunately, as said by Google, a false accusation. Hopefully I'll be able to get my hands on a pair of these Google glasses. They seem to be a lot of fun to play around with!

Yes! I have always wanted to become some sort of super human robot! It would be super cool to be a robot because you would have unimaginable super strength.But in a way, I hope this never happens. Human beings would misuse this and cause a lot more harm than good. So while this would be super cool, this idea should never become reality.

The feat is considered a critical step toward the development of a network of so-called quantum computers.
Austin Peterman's insight:

It is interesting to think that, one day, there is a possibility of achieving transportation by teleportation. It is always so cool to see how far technology has come. I sure would hate to be the first person to be teleported though. A lot of things could go wrong in the process and really mess someone up.

RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. — Google is building a fleet of electric-powered self-driving cars that it plans to begin testing by the end of the year.

I have been waiting for this sort of thing for a long time! Finally, someone is pulling it of! Some higher end cars such as Mercedes and BMW have some sort of self driving technology such as automatic braking, but it is nothing compared to this! A car that can accelerate, brake, and steer itself is truly amazing!
