Hacking is when someone breaks into a computer and tampers with your things, like documents, firewalls, websites, ect. Also, it reprograms a computers so all of your things are gone or redesigned. It affects a web designer because if a web designer designs a website for someone or his/herself and a hacker hacks into it, they could lose all of their work and would have to start over. This could also affect the user because if someone goes to a website that someone designed for them, and it's not what they wanted they could sue the web designer if they paid him/her to design it. This is really bad because the web designer could have done everything right and someone could have hacked into it without the person knowing.
I think it's a very bad thing to do. I don't think anyone should be able to insert themselves into other peoples' business or websites. I don't really know why someone would want to re-program a computer and tamper with peoples' things. It's such a hassle to get everything back to normal and it's a waste of time.

free post!

Today seems like it's never ending, especially because even when school ends at 2pm, I have gymnastics practice at 2:20pm. I don't want to go to practice today at all. I compete beam for BHS gymnastics, and yesterday while practice my routine I did a roundoff and fell off of the beam. I didn't JUST fall off though, I fell off hitting almost every single rib on my left side. I'm pretty sure at least 2 are broken and the rest are bruised. Unfortunately, you can't "fix" broken ribs, you just have to let them heal over time. I'm still practicing today and tomorrow I have to do my routine infront of a judge, so she can critique it. I hope my broken ribs don't impair me in doing well tomorrow. At least I didn't break anything too serious like an ankle or leg! But it's still lame that it happened. Oh well, I'm going to get back up on the beam today and do my routine as if nothing happened...hopefully!

Apple vs. Windows

I prefer Apple rather than Windows. This is because Apple is much more advanced in technology and applications. Also, Apple's computers (Macs) are a lot better than Window's computers because the Macs are much faster and they also have better screen resoultions which makes images look much better. Apple and Windows also share good qualities. For example, how Windows has many messenger applications and a movie maker application and Apple has many advanced items like the iPad and iPhone. A poor feature of Windows is that it runs slow and it can get very aggrivating. Apple also has a downfall, and it is that it's more design based than data based. This means that Apple focuses more on how to improve the resolutions and image clearness rather than the updated versions of the actual application. Windows doesn't focus on the images and resoultion but focuses mainly on the data part of their items. Windows has excellent programs like Excell and Microsoft Word, but their graphics aren't as good as Apple. This is a good competition because Apple and Windows are kind of like opposites.
Apple was established on April 1st, 1976 in California, but wasn't incorporated until January of 1977. It used to be name Apple Computers, Inc for the first 30 years of its existance, but afterwards changed to just Apple because they decided to invent other products instead of just computers. Windows was created in 1983 through Microsoft. The first version of Windows was Windows 1.0 created in 1985. The second version of Windows came out two years later in December of 1987. Apple and Windows actually worked together to create "desk accessories" like calculator, paint, and a clock. These were available on the desktop or the main home screen on the computer.

New technology

The most innovative and new piece of technology out there now is the iPad. It is a tablet computer similar to the iPhone, except in computer form. It was created by Apple, and it is so popular that it sold 3 million iPads in just 80 days! However, the iPad can do many different things similar to the iPhone and iPod it only allows you to download applications approved by Apple.
I think it's very cool and amazing how someone could invent that. I don't think it will help the world in the future, but it will help people become up to date with modern technology. I haven't used one before, but I'm itching to try one! Everyone that has used one said they're unbelieveable. I do think it will become obsolete in the future, only because they are already coming out with an iPad 2. Technology is constantly advancing whether you notice or not.
