(Historical) Computers as Movie Superstars





The JavaZone developer conference has this tradition of making a short film for each of their conferences. Usually this is short mock trailer for parodies of more or less classic films. Last year however, they decided to make a longer episode called . (No points for guessing what they've parodied this time.) In it they've used quite a few classic computers as props, and almost as characters in themselves. Here's a writeup about the computers they used and their history.

As predicted, more branch prediction processor attacks are discovered

Researchers from the College of William and Mary, Carnegie Mellon, the University of California Riverside, and Binghamton University have described a security attack that uses the speculative execution features of modern processors to leak sensitive information and undermine the security boundaries that operating systems and software erect to protect important data.

That probably sounds familiar.

Hey everyone, my good mate @Damien Schroeder is #newhere on #framasphere (et #nouveauici aussi, und #neuhier auch), he is #smart and #kind and I guess he likes #computers, #privacy, #justice / #equality / #sustainability, #electronicmusic, #folktronica, #techno, #livemusic, good #music in general, #travelling, speaks many #languages, is somehow connected to #strasbourg and #münchen...

How about making him feel #welcome here? :)



Hopefully he won't mind me revealing so much about him ;) <3
