A SMALL COMPUTER PROGRAM THAT CAN RELEASE AN E-BOMB ON A NETWORK

E BOMB

Its not my creation though. This is a batch program that if run in one of the terminals of a computer network, it will create multiple popup messages on other terminals and jam the CPU with loads of work until the network halts. Use it at your own risk.
Note: this program was made to test networks for stability and not to break them. No harm was made when it was constructed not even a dinosaur was hurt

History of Computers: The first programmable computer was not ENIAC, it was Z1

America would want us to believe that they are the master minds behind any technology advancement in the world, and that is why we read in schools about ENIAC and EDVAC as the first programmable computers. I can today here fulfill that, the first programmable computer was not ENIAC, it was Z1 a discovery of a Germany scientist Konrad Zuse

"Zuse spent years working in his parents’ living room, constructing giant computers that would seem ridiculously large by today’s standards. The Z1, an earlier attempt that laid the groundwork for the Z3, was over six feet tall. The Z1 broke ground in its own right. The Z1, completed in 1936, was the first computer that ran on binary, a series of on and off switches. Unfortunately, it was kind of unreliable and only worked for a few minutes as the mechanical switches would get stuck."

Seventy five years ago (yesterday) Konrad Zuse changed computing forever. His invention, the Z3, was presented at the German Laboratory for Aviation in Berlin on May 12, 1941, as the world’s first entirely automatic computer controlled by programs.

By the time Zuse was working on Z3, Howard Aiken, backed by IBM, was working on a similar project at the same time in the U.S. Because of World War II, however, the two men didn’t know about each others’ work. Aiken’s machine, the Mark I, debuted three years after Zuse’s and was reportedly slower.

Unfortunately, Zuse’s original Z3 was destroyed in 1943, bombed in Berlin. Also lost in the bombing were important documents associated with its development. Rubbing more salt in the wound, the German Patent Office told Zuse after the war that he could not patent his invention. Zuse worked on reconstructing the Z3 in the sixties, however, and today that replica is on display in Munich’s Deutsches Museum.

Computer hacker jani
Meet Jani.
A 10-year-old Finnish boy named Jani discovered a flaw in Instagram, allowing him to delete comments at will. He informed Facebook of the issue and received $10,000 from the company.

Jani also says ' I hacked President Obama's phone but it's just a bunch of boring emails and "launch codes" and nothing about the next Avengers movie so who even cares.' Read More ....

Insane Technology:- Google Wants To Inject A Computer Into Your Eyeball. But Why?

google wants to insert a computer into your eye
Google has filed a patent application for a device that's injected directly into your eyeball. The tiny computer would be used to improve your vision, but who is to say it won't one day be capable of augmented reality?

The people over at Google's labs cook up some pretty insane things — billions of dollars at their disposal will let you do that. And this latest invention can certainly be classified in the insane category.

Google filed a patent application for a computer that is injected into the lens capsule of an eye via some sort of fluid, as first reported by Forbes. The computer would have storage, sensors, radio, battery and an electronic lens, and would be powered wirelessly through a “energy harvesting antenna.”

The explicit purpose of this eye chip would be to help focus light on the eye's retina, but who knows, maybe this will be the future of Google Glass without having to put those weird spectacles on? Read More ...

Bomb-sniffing drone technology developed at UW:- Do terrorists have plan B?

drone

Drones may soon have the capability to save thousands of lives each year by detecting terrorists’ improvised explosive devices and active land mines from long-ago wars thanks to innovative technology developed at UW-Madison.

The proven detection technology that also can detect chemical and nuclear weapons and drugs was successfully miniaturized and designed to fly on small unmanned aircraft by Fusion Technology Lab graduate students about five months ago, according to Jerry Kulcinski, an emeritus professor of nuclear engineering and the lab’s director.

“They did something that has never been done before,” Kulcinski said. Continue Reading ...


Good news for Kenya Power haters:- New Technology Can Potentialy Make Batteries Last 400 Times Longer

new battery to last 400 times longer
One of the many monopoly companies that Kenyans have learned to hate is KPLC. This starts with rationing, frequent blackouts, tokens name them. A new technology has been invented to save you from this situation, but don't be in hurry, you will need KPLC to power this new technology. But you will not always rely on KPLC, because your device will always have power 400 times more than what you currently have.

A new technology of battery-making may potentially enable these energy sources to last 400 times longer than usual, a new study has found.

The technology makes use of a nanowire-based material that can be recharged for thousands of times, paving the way for the possibility that battery replacement may not be required anymore.

Nanowires

Nanowires are very tiny conductors that have long been a subject of battery-making production. This is because of their extremely thin structure, high conductivity and big surface area for the transmission and storage of electrons.

The main hindrances to nanowire-based batteries are the issues of fragility and inability to endure periodic recharging, discharging and cycling. When these nanowires are placed in ordinary lithium-ion batteries, they spread and become frail, resulting in cracks.

Ransomware attacks on businesses and individuals have risen dramatically in recent years. But what is ransomware?

posted Apr 22, 2016, 11:39 AM by Maurice Nyamoti   [ updated Apr 22, 2016, 11:40 AM ]

ransomwareRansomware is a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid.

Grayson Barnes had just started working at his father’s law firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma when a note popped-up on one of the computer screens. It informed him that all the files on the firm’s digital network had been encrypted and were being held ransom. If he ever wanted to access them again, he had to pay $500, in the Internet currency Bitcoin, within five days. If he didn’t, the note concluded, everything would be destroyed.

“It wasn’t just a day’s worth of work,” Barnes told TIME. “It was the entire library of documents, all the Word documents, all the Excel.” Read More ...

 One of the essential good habits for keeping hackers off your computer is to keep your operating system and programs up to date. Updates fix security holes that hackers can use to attack you. Learn more good habits that will make your safer online.

However, there are times when a company stops supporting a program, which means no more security updates. In other words, you have a ticking time bomb on your system just waiting for a clever hacker to trigger it. And that's exactly what's happening right now with a popular program you might have installed on your computer a long time ago. If so, you need to get rid of it right now. READ MORE ....
