A Look at Microsoft's Surface Computer V.2

Microsoft Surface General Manager Panos Panay showed us a preview of the next version of Surface at CES, called the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface. This matured device runs on Embedded Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and has a new technology in the screen that allows for 2 million sensors (rather than optical cameras) alongside the pixels in the display. This means more touchpoints than you have fingers or friends, no more box under the displ

5.3 Neighbourhoods

We know that a polygon X is a surface and so each point x in X has a disc-like or half-disc-like neighbourhood. We shall show that a map f that identifies edges of a polygon to create an object Y automatically creates corresponding disc-like or half-disc-like neighbourhoods of each point y = f(x) of Y.

If x is in the interior of X, there is no difficulty: the point x has a disc-like neighbourhood U

Computer scientists tell us that Y2K will bring the world?s computer infrastructure to its knees. Maybe, maybe not. But it is interesting that Y2K is an issue at all. Speculating on the future is simultaneously a magnifying glass for examining our technologies and a looking glass for what we become through them. "The future" is nothing new. Orwell's vis
