Top 3 trends sweeping the web

These days, on the Internet, a trend can appear out of nowhere, go viral, make somebody a million bucks and die again before you’ve finished your breakfast, it can be pretty hard to keep up. But there are always a few that stick around for a bit longer, picking up celebrity endorsements and even have a lasting effect on culture. Here are three recent trends that are all over the Internet, and probably your city, too. Drift Scooters If you have made even only a few cursory glances towards popular culture this year, then you have probably noticed celebrities gliding around without using their legs in TV shows, video clips and even one or two movies. What is that thing that looks kind of like a sideways skateboard? That, my friend, is a Drift Scooter, and the world is going nuts for them. It all started, as it so often does, with Justin Bieber, who started posting pictures of himself cruising along on Instagram and since then, the list of celebrities drifting around on these scooters is started to grow. Chris Brown, Nick Jonas, Skrillex, David Ortiz, Jamie Foxx drifted onto the Tonight Show and it has also showed up at the NBA finals. The Drift Scooter is a simple skateboard-like device that you control by shifting your balance over the two independently stabilized wheels, it has a top speed of 6mph, the battery will last for about 12 miles and it appears to be relatively safe, with no reports of any serious accidents.

For many years, computer games were the domain of spotty pre-pubescent teenagers and man-boys still living in their parents house. The content of games was aimed exclusively at that market and it was assumed that the gaming industry would have an ever-replenishing group of young men on whom to sell their games, it was happy times. No one anticipated the kind of change that the smartphone was going start; when the iPhone first came out, they weren’t even that keen on having a games section for their app store. But the market for Smartphone games is now worth millions of dollars worldwide thanks to a string of easy to play and addictive games that are either free or only cost a few dollars. Smartphones have turned everyone into gamers, many people who never would have looked at a computer game are now Fruit Ninja-ing their way home from work or killing a bit of extra time by shooting an Angry Bird out of a sling shot. The relative...

The history of the humble computer.

You can’t point to one person in history that is responsible for inventing the computer, as the development of the computer from its origins to its not-so-humble place in today’s society, is one that involved many clever people and technological advancements. The First Computer Usually credited with the first computer is a man named Charles Babbage, who came up with a machine that could process input data using punch cards and provided the outputted information through a printer, a curve plotter and a bell. This first machine was created in 1833, almost 100 years before the technology advanced to anything that resembles computers today. Principles The principles of the modern computer were developed during the Second World War by a man named Alan Turing, who was working for the British government trying to decrypt the famous enigma machine that the Germans were using to keep their communication secret. Turing’s main developments involved the theoretical underpinnings that would then be left to others to try when the technology had advanced far enough. Going digital The next major breakthrough happened when the technology developed from mechanical and electromagnetic components to purely electrical circuits, which increased the speed and reduced the size of computers. Around the 1950s, the first bipolar transistor replaced vacuum tubes and we start to see computers resembling what we know today. Integrated Circuits The next major development came when Jack Kilby developed integrated circuit technology in the late 1950s. This further increased the computing power and reduced the size but it was when a competitor of Kilby’s changed the material used to create these circuits to silicon that the game really changed. It was these silicon chips that heralded the beginning of a rapid increase in computing power that started bringing computers out of the labs and into the homes of ordinary people. It was around this time that we saw technology develop to the point where we had the capacity to travel into space and land on the moon. Moore’s Law The next few decades saw computing increase according to what became known as Moore’s’ Law, which states that computing power doubles roughly every 18 months and by the early 1990s, computers were ubiquitous with modern homes and businesses, some people thought it was as technologically advanced as it was ever going to get. The Internet But as we now know, the Internet was the real game changer, the biggest technological advancement since the printing press, what started as a little network for military and scientific computers to talk to each other, became the globalised behemothic force that we see today. The modern computer Computers are literally...
