  • Boundaries Of Ownership - 3,055 words
    Boundaries Of Ownership BOUNDARIES OF OWNERSHIP Nobody owns this essay. It is important that I make this very clear and that I do so at the earliest possible moment. I must do this because the essay that you are reading is about intellectual property, and that means that this essay must be self-referential. When one writes or speaks or communicates in any way about intellectual property, one is dealing with some of the most basic rules of the very medium in which one is operating. There is no neutral ground here, no possibility of genuine detachment or objectivity. Either I am going to claim the protection of the current laws that apply in the United States and under the World Intellectual P ...

  • History Of Computer Animation - 1,780 words
    History Of Computer Animation To look at him, you would not think that Phil Tippett is the creator of some of the most horrific and terrifying monsters ever witnessed by the human race. A quite normal-looking man of average height, with thinning grey hair, he has been at the forefront of movie animation for almost three decades. Phil Tippett is one of the greatest animators of all time, starting off with the age-old techniques of stop-motion and then moving on to the technical computer generated wizardry of today. I chose to write about him because I greatly admire the work he had done in the industry and he has witnessed first hand the technological advances that have occurred during the co ...

    ... Starfighter in 1984, the answer was still a decided no. Both of these films were touted as a technological tour-de-force, which, in fact, they were. The films' graphics were extremely well executed, the best seen up to that point, but they could not save the film from a weak script. Unfortunately, the technology was greatly oversold during the film's promotion and so in the end it was technology that was blamed for the film's failure. With the 1980s came the age of personal computers and dedicated workstations. Workstations are minicomputers that were cheap enough to buy for one person. Smaller was better, aster, an much, much cheaper. Advances in silicon chip technologies brought massi ...

    ... ies mentioned before. Larry Miller of Reciprocal Music claims like dinosaurs, recording companies will be rendered extinct when asked about the future of retail music . He also says that the retail business is going to look totally different than the way it currently is today, he adds by saying, "Is that necessarily bad? I think it's just called evolution of business. The best of them will get better. The worst of them will go away." The people that get hurt most by this phenomenon is the struggling artists who try to strike deals with recording companies that are not into the digital age, rather then the ones who have a fan base of cyber surfers and can rely on them for sales. The users ...

  • New Product Ideabusiness Plan - 1,154 words
    New Product Idea/Business Plan Executive Summary Since the first cellular mobile telephone networks opened for business in the early 1980's, growth in numbers of subscribers has consistently exceeded even the most optimistic forecasts. Even in the most advanced markets, this growth shows little sign of slowing, and meanwhile, new markets are accelerating rapidly. Cellular telephony was developed by AT&T (American Telephone and Telegraph), in it's Bell laboratories. It operates by allocating a spectrum of radio channel frequencies to telecommunications systems. The radio channel frequencies are subdivided and assigned to a network of radio base stations each responsible for the coverage of a ...

  • Quality Vs Old Fasion - 603 words
    Quality Vs Old Fasion Quality vs. Old Fashion With the introduction of DVD technology, VHS videotapes are eventually going to be put out of production. Just like compact disks have taken over cassette tapes. Although cassette tapes are still being produced, they are not as popular as they were during the late 70's and early 80's. There are different aspects between a DVD and a VHS movie that include picture quality, sound quality, and special features that were not in the theater version. The first thing someone will notice when watching a DVD movie is the "Significantly better video quality than standard VHS". The picture is more crisp and clear than it is on a VHS. This is because DVDs are ...

  • The Dvd Revolution - 1,087 words
    The DVD Revolution The DVD Revolution Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the features and advantages of DVD video. Central Idea: The DVD video format has superior audio and visual quality to VHS, as well as more special features, which is why it should eventually occupy the place of the VCR in American households. Introduction Id like to start things out by taking a survey. How many of you remember having a CD player in your house fifteen years ago? Not very many of you, I see. Of course, we all have CD players now. It took a little over a decade and some major price drops, but eventually we all threw out our old vinyl and cassettes and opted for the excellent sound quality and co ...

  • Us Airlines - 1,841 words
    US Airlines Deregulation of the U.S. airline industry has resulted in ticket prices dropping by a third, on an inflation-adjusted basis. As a result some 1.6 million people fly on 4,000 aircraft every day. Airlines carried 643 million passengers in 1998, a 25% increase over 1993 and the FAA estimates that the nations airline system will have to accommodate 917 million passengers by the year 2008. The growth in air travel threatens to overwhelm the presently inadequate air traffic control system, which has not kept pace with available technology in navigation, communications, and flight surveillance. Much of the equipment used for air traffic control today is based on fifty-year-old technolog ...

  • What Hdtv Is - 1,360 words
    What HDTV Is Digital describes electronic technology that generates, stores, and processes data in terms of two states: positive and non-positive. Positive is expressed or represented by the number 1 and non-positive by the number 0 (Lasica). Data that is transmitted or stored with digital technology is expressed as a string of 0's and 1's. Each of these digits is referred too as a bit (and a string of bits that a computer can address individually as a group is a byte). Prior to digital technology, electronic transmission was limited to analog technology, which conveys data as electronic signals of varying frequency or amplitude that are added to carrier waves of a given frequency (Lasica). ...

  • When Purchasing A Cellular Phone There Is Always The Question Of Analog Or Digital In Analog Cellular Service The Voice Is Tr - 603 words
    When purchasing a cellular phone there is always the question of analog or digital. In analog cellular service the voice is transmitted over a specific radio frequency, usually 800 MHz. Digital cellular service on the other hand breaks the voice down into a binary format where the voice is represented by a series of 1s and Os. These simple definitions will help to familiarize yourself with the two systems, but to truly determine which phone is right for you there are four issues that should be addressed, cost, sound quality, coverage, and features. Cost is an issue that is important to everyone so it must be considered when purchasing a cellular phone. Analog is the original cellular phone t ...
