Robot in the uncanny valley
The uncanny valley, is a theory of the japanes expert in robotics Masahiro Mori that says that the emotional response of a human to a humanoid robot, will be empathic and positive as much more it's the resemblance to a human, but will arrive a point before that the similarity and the movements of the robot be totally human, in that the response will be of aversion. Overcomed this valley, when the robot is indistinguishable from a human, the response becomes so empathic as to any other human. Continue discovering "Explanations of the uncanny valley"

In all this cases the people knows that needs an architect, an aeronautic engineer and automobile engineer, respectively. But who has the guilty of this way of think?

The past month died three great geniuses that had made that the computing be as it is today. I'm referring to John MacCarthy, Dennis Ritchie and Steve Jobs. Probably you only know who is the last, which is the only one that has had media coverage. However is the less important, because if the other two had not existed, Steve Jobs perhaps wouldn't have achieved anything. Learn more about "Great personalities of the computing deceased recently"

Logo
During any software development is normal that the client want that the application does more things. If the computer specialist don't have all the things well defined from the beginning can make more difficult the development, but that isn't a problem, the problem is that normally the client don't want to pay more than that was established in the initial budget.

IPv6
To identify any device in Internet, this must have a IP assigned (is something similar to a telephone number that identifies uniquely every computer). But these numbers, that use the format established by the protocol IPv4, are running out, making that in a few months would be necessary the use of numbers more large, whose format was established by the protocol IPv6.
