Dana G Smith Writes, that what he has done since a young boy. Today he writes, it is a Writer’s Complex! Writing on the Writers Life Blog, it fulfills that need and purpose to write. It is something I must do, which is why today I have published, produced, and posted over 10,000 articles on our websites over these past 18 years.
Technology Writers Complex
Today on this new website, www.danaglennsmith.com; I feature a story I did some months back. It is called Windows 10, Technology, and the Beast. I write Christian articles, in depth essays, and posts that have an endtime, Christian and faith theme. I write these to transform inform, and help the Believers in these end of days. These can inspire, make you perspire, or push you to further heights in the Lord.
Now proceed to read my Writers Complex post on Windows 10, Technology, and the Beast. This is What I do, it is my Writers Complex for Jesus Christ
Windows 10, Technology, and the Beast: Windows 10
Microsoft with Windows 10 has brought a new level to the game. What Windows eight failed to achieve, the new kid on the block takes technology, privacy, and intrusion to a new level. Cnet covering the launch of Windows 10 calls it “Microsoft’s vision of the future” and a place that a “single user experience spans every piece of technology you touch”.
However some 30 years ago a little known company today called Quantum Computer Services rose up from a failed start up. It later became known as AOL. It was in those early years of Microsoft, Windows 3, and AOL that I in earnest began the Technology field. The days were of 1200 KB internet and to call AOL you used a phone line that was not meant for such connections. There were no videos, no pictures, no fancy websites, but there were bulletin boards you could connect to. That was the early years and by 1993, an AOL Press release states “America Online Surpasses 500,000 Subscriber Mark”. They were the early ballgame in the internet world. No online broadcasting, nothing like we have today.
It was in those days after Bill Gates began in 1983 that for the most part IBM compatibles were coming out. I had one built which cost $3,400.00 dollars. A huge amount and the ability, memory, and function were a fraction of what I have today. Windows first came out with an early version, long before I was able to have Windows 3. Which in those years, was amazing software, and yes in those days we had to do some DOS. Its rival in 1985 was a Macintosh.
By Comdex 1985, Microsoft had Windows 1.0 ready to show. It was a laughable product that was nothing more than a shell interface running on top of DOS. It was a curiosity at best, and nobody was buying it.
It could only tile its “windows,” and there were no major programs that ran on it. It came with a crude clock, a miserable text editor, and a game called Reversi.
In 1986 an article by Erik Sandberg-Diment appeared in the Nytimes titled”Personal Computers Windows are Open at last.” In it Sandberg describes the new Windows software:
Windows on a PC with 512K of memory is akin to pouring molasses in the Arctic. And the more windows you activate, the more sluggishly it performs.
The mess I put up with in those old IBM compatibles, slow dial connections, and even slower software with little or no memory is amazing. Yet back then, not many were actually getting into the tech portion of it. Even fewer would get online and no one thought of cell phones at that time. It would be years before Star Trek and Nimoy with Captain Kirk would bring technology to the screen. The rest is history. But in this, the whole of the personal computing was the substance of the individuals experience and ability in using his equipment and keeping it running. But we did not have to worry too much about intrusions, malware, adware, hackers, and such. The Windows program I had always crashed. I mean in the middle of the work, it would simply go dark; for no apparent reason. I spent more time restarting my computer and trying to regain lost work that I do today.
