RAND Corporation’s 1954 Prediction Of The Size Of The Home Computer In 2004

Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a “home computer” could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible to the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With the teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.


I’m happy they were wrong.

CSS3 Test - How does your browser score for its CSS3 support?

thechangelog:

If you’d like to know how your browser scores for its CSS3 support, you have to check out Lea Verou’s CSS3 Test. She announced the project yesterday on her blog.

Here’s screenshot of my browser, Google Chrome 16.0.912.77.

The CSS3 Test

Lea actually planned this as an improvement to her interactive CSS playground called Dabblet (Source on GitHub), but it didn’t work out the way she planned, so she released CSS3 Test on its own.

If you haven’t yet, read her blog post about the project - she talks about how it works, using browserscope, how it doesn’t work on dinosaur browsers like IE8, and why she built it in the first place.

A word of caution the CSS3 test checks which CSS3 features your browser recognizes, not whether or not they are actually implemented correctly. Oh, and WebKit claims to support CSS3 background-repeat, but it is LYING.

If you’d like to add tests to CSS3 test, go to tests.js and follow the current structure. Also, there are lots of great conversations and comments about the project on Hacker News.
