de-fragmentation
In the computer science, sometimes, appears false beliefs due to the ignorance of that really occurs in the machine. This time I'm going to demystify some of this old beliefs, which say that the hard disk can't be fragmented when we run a Linux based operating system. Don't miss the rest of "What is fragmentation and the old myth of the fragmentation in Linux"

Binary code
There is a big lack of knowledge about how is measured the quantity of information in a computer. It is a fact that storage device sellers and Internet providers have take advantage to cheat us. Also, not a lot of time ago was changed the nomenclature of the international system of information units generating even more confusion.

Two terminators T-800 looking face to face
Was the year 1996 when the professor Weizenbaum created ELIZA, the first chatbot application and the first that the human could use to talk about their problems, because was a psychotherapist. Later, in 1971, Colby, Weber and Hilf developed PARRY, another chatbot, but this time was a paranoid schizophrenic made to chat with ELIZA. So they hooked up at ARPANET (pre-Internet) and put them to chat together. Do you want to know what happened? Read more of "When the machines talked to each other"

Kempelen machine reconstruction
Over two hundred years ago, in 1779, Christian Kartzenstein did 5 whistles that made blew the vowels artificially. Few years after, in 1791, Wolfgang von Kemplelen presented his "Acoustic-Mechanical Speech Machine" that we could consider the first voice synthesizer because it could produce isolated sounds and some sound combinations.
