A typical fibre-optic cable five thousands of an inch thick can carry up to 2.5 billion bits of data per second, or 32,000 simultaneous telephone calls.
In the mid-1980s, engineers at Apple Computer developed a high-speed method of transferring data to and from the hard drives in Macintosh desktops while simplyfying the internet cabling. They called it FireWire.
The cellphone is actually a very complicated radio that communicates with the cell tower in the area.
Programs that are small and un-useful, but demonstrate a point, are called ‘Noddy‘ programs. Noddy programs are often written by people learning a new language or system. The archetypal noddy program is the “hello world” program, which is simply a program that outputs the phrase. In North America, this might be called a ‘Mickey Mouse‘ program.
