Windows 8 is the latest version of Microsofts Windows operating system. It was released on October 26, 2012, and is the first major update to Windows since Windows 7, which was released over three years earlier.
While Windows 7 offered several performance improvements over Windows Vista, there were few changes to the look and feel of the operating system. Windows 8, on the other hand, provides an entirely new user interface compared to its predecessor. This interface (initially called Metro, but now labeled the Modern UI style) displays a collection of tiles rather than a traditional desktop environment. These tiles provide access to commonly used programs and tools, such as Internet Explorer, Maps, Weather, Photos, Videos, Music, and the Windows Store. Several of the tiles, such as the Weather and social networking tiles are updated in real-time.
The goal of the new Windows 8 interface is to function on both traditional desktop PCs, such as desktop computers and laptops, as well as tablet PCs. Windows 8 supports both touchscreen input as well as traditional input devices, such as a keyboard and mouse. This flexibility allows Windows 8 to run on a wide range of desktop and portable devices and it is especially well-suited for hybrid computers that include a touchscreen as well as a keyboard and mouse.
For users that dont need the touchscreen functionality, Windows 8 still includes the traditional Windows desktop and Windows Explorer, which can be accessed from the home screen. In other words, if you dont want to use the new tile-based interface, you can simply bypass that layer of the interface and access the Windows desktop you are used to. Microsoft has also provided several performance improvements to Windows Explorer and added a few new interface elements, such as File, Home, Share, and View tabs to the top of each window. Each of these tabs include one-click access to multiple options. For example, the View tab allows you to show hidden files and show or hide file extensions, two options that used to require several steps to change in previous versions of Windows.
Web pages are what make up the World Wide Web. These documents are written in HTML (hypertext markup language) and are translated by your Web browser. Web pages can either be static or dynamic. Static pages show the same content each time they are viewed. Dynamic pages have content that can change each time they are accessed. These pages are typically written in scripting languages such as PHP, Perl, ASP, or JSP. The scripts in the pages run functions on the server that return things like the date and time, and database information. All the information is returned as HTML code, so when the page gets to your browser, all the browser has to do is translate the HTML.
Please note that a Web page is not the same thing as a Web site. A Web site is a collection of pages. A Web page is an individual HTML document. This is a good distinction to know, as most techies have little tolerance for people who mix up the two terms.
Vlog is short for video blog and is pronounced vlog (one syllable). A vlog is a blog, or web log, that includes video clips. It may be entirely video-based or may include both video and written commentary. Several types of vlogs are available on the Web, including instructional videos, travel updates, and personal commentaries.
People who create vlogs are known as vloggers. Some vloggers post videos for fun, while others run vlogs for the purpose of generating revenue through advertisements. While its possible to set up a vlog website, many vloggers post their vlogs on YouTube since it makes their videos easier to find. Additionally, YouTube offers free video hosting, which means vloggers can post unlimited videos without paying web hosting fees.
In order to create a vlog, all you need is a video camera, an Internet connection, and a good idea. While a simple cell phone video camera can get the job done, a standalone HD video camera will produce much higher quality videos. You can publish videos as often as you like, though if you decide to maintain a blog, it helps to post them at consistent intervals, such as once a day or once a week. This helps your viewers know when new videos will be available, which makes them more likely to continue visiting your vlog.
As computer users, we have become accustomed to icons that represent files, folders, programs, and other objects on the computer. Many software programs also use icons to represent tools, which are often found in the programs toolbar.
While these icons can save screen space and make the programs interface more attractive, it can sometimes be difficult to tell what all the tool icons mean. While some tool icons are obvious (such as a printer icon to print and a scissors icon to cut a text selection), others are a bit more ambiguous. For this reason, programs often include tooltips that explain what each tool icon represents.
Tooltips are displayed when you roll over an icon with the cursor. It may take a second or two to display the tooltip, but when it does appear, it usually is a small box with a yellow background explaining what the icon represents. For example, in Microsoft Word, when you roll over the disk icon, the tooltip Save appears. This means clicking on the disk icon will save your document. In Photoshop, when you roll over the wand icon, the text Magic Wand Tool (W) appears. This indicates that clicking the the wand icon or pressing the W key will activate the magic wand selection tool.
Not all programs incorporate tooltips, but most modern programs include them as part of a user-friendly interface. Operating systems also support them in different ways. For example, Mac OS X will show the full text of a long filename when you place the cursor over the filename. Windows includes tooltips for the systray icons and also tells you information about each file and folder you place the cursor over. If you drag your cursor over different icons on your computer, you may find tooltips you never knew were there!
A superscript is a character or string that is smaller than the preceding text and sits above the baseline. Superscripts have several applications in both math and writing.
In math, superscripts are commonly used for exponents. For example:
23 = 8
The calculation above can also be written as 2^3 = 8. The caret symbol (^) is often used as an alternative when superscript text formatting is not available. Both 23 and 2^3 can be described as two to the third power, where 3 is the exponent.
In writing, superscripts have several different uses. Examples include footnotes, ordinal indicators, and trademarks. A footnote is a letter or number, typically placed at the end of a sentence, that refers to a reference or citation. The actual citation, which is preceded by the corresponding letter or number, may be located at the end of the page, document, or literary work. For example, the c is the footnote in the sentence below.
The population of the United States in 2015 is estimated to be 320 million. c
Ordinal indicators may also be written using superscript, such as the following examples:
1st (first), 2nd (second), 3rd (third).
Finally, trademarks and service marks are often displayed in superscript, such as ™ and ℠.
Most word processors support both subscript and superscript text. HTML provides the <sup> tag for displaying superscript in a webpage. If you are editing a plain text document or using a program that doesnt support superscript, you can represent superscript text using other methods. For example, mathematical exponents can be denoted with the caret symbol (^). Footnotes and trademarks can be denoted using parentheses, such as (a) for a footnote or (TM) for a trademark. Ordinal notation does not require superscript and can be written 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.
A status bar is a small area at the bottom of a window. It is used by some applications to display helpful information for the user. For example, an open folder window on the desktop may display the number of items in the folder and how many items are selected. Photoshop uses the status bar to display the size of the current image, the zoom percentage, and other information. Web browsers use the status bar to display the Web address of a link when the user moves the cursor over it. It also shows the status of loading pages, and displays error messages.
If you dont see the status bar in your Web browser or another program, you may be able to enable it by selecting Show Status Bar from the applications View menu. If this option is not available in the View menu, the program may not use a status bar. Some programs use a status window instead to show the current activity in the application. The option for displaying this window is usually found in the Window menu.
Computer windows are often not large enough to display the entire contents of the window at one time. Therefore, you may need to scroll through the window to view all the contents. Traditionally, this has been done by clicking and dragging the slider within the scroll bar. However, many mice now come with scroll wheels that make the scrolling process even easier.
The scroll wheel typically sits between the left and right buttons on the top of a mouse. It is raised slightly, which allows the user to easily drag the wheel up or down using the index finger. Pulling the scroll wheel towards you scrolls down the window, while pushing it away scrolls up. Most modern mice include a scroll wheel, since it eliminates the need to move the cursor to the scroll bar in order to scroll through the window. Therefore, once you get accustomed to using a scroll wheel, it can be pretty difficult to live without.
Most scroll wheels only allow the user to scroll up and down. However, some programs allow the user to use a modifier key, such as Control or Shift, to change the scrolling input to left and right. Some mice even have a tilting scroll wheel that allows the user to scroll left and right. The Apple Mighty Mouse has a spherical scrolling mechanism (called a scroll ball) that allows the user to also scroll left and right and even diagonally. Whatever the case, any type of scroll wheel is certainly better than nothing.
Most people know of samba as a type of rhythmic dance music from Brazil that uses a 2/4 time signature. In the computer world, samba has a different meaning but is no less exciting (if you are a computer nerd).
Samba is an open-source software implementation of the SMB networking protocol used by Windows computers. (If you look closely, you can see the correlation between the two names.) Samba allows other computer platforms, such as Mac OS X, Unix, Linux, IBM System 390, and OpenVMS to interact with Windows computers on the same network. This includes sharing files and using shared devices such as printers connected to other computers within the local network.
Because SMB was developed only for Windows, without Samba, other computer platforms would be isolated from Windows machines, even if they were part of the same network. Fortunately, Samba helps different types of computers work together as if they were all based on the same platform. This gives network administrators the freedom to choose multiple types of computers systems when setting up a network. Now thats a reason to dance!
