Launch Your IT Career With This Complete Programming Super Bundle

If you want an example of how computer programming is everywhere in our lives, you don’t have to go any further than your pizza order. As part of its enormous rebrand several years ago, Dominos completely rebuilt how they sell you a pie to focus on the technology. The idea was to make ordering a pizza so simple you can do it with literally anything, be it an emoji, an app that loads a clock and your favorite order, or telling a voice assistant to get your pizza. They’ve even incorporated “if this then that” (IFTTT) tech to let you customize your pizza ordering experience right down to the lighting and music.

The Complete Computer Programmer Super Bundle, currently 98% off, will open the door to a new career, or sharpen your skills to advance in your current one, whether you want to pen-test networks or build a better pizza

Supreme Court Hearing On A $9 Billion Case Involving Oracle And Google Could Reshape The Software Industry

In a landmark moment in the history of the U.S. software industry, the Supreme Court held a hearing on October 7 into a long-running legal dispute that pits tech giants Oracle and Google against one another.

The case centers around whether or not a key foundation of today’s increasingly software-driven economy—blocks of code known as “application programming interfaces,” or APIs—is subject to copyright protection. Oracle claims Google infringed copyright when it used elements of the Oracle-owned Java programming language to build its Android operating system, which now powers billions of smartphones and other devices. Google denies the claim, which involves about 11,500 lines of code out of millions of new lines that it wrote to create Android. The two companies have been battling one another in the courts for over a decade, with Oracle demanding $9 billion in compensation.

You’ll need to manually update your drivers in Windows 10 if automatic updates aren’t enabled. Hollis Johnson

  • To update your drivers in Windows 10, open the Device Manager and right-click the device you need to update.
  • The most important drivers on your computer will likely be updated automatically along with other Windows updates, but you can still check for updates manually.
  • Drivers are essential software that keep the various devices and components in your Windows computer working properly.
  • Visit Business Insider’s Tech Reference library for more stories.

Drivers are software that various devices on your Windows computer, such as the sound and graphics cards, rely on to work properly. Without these drivers, most of your computer would break down.

Space internet is ready for people to start using it, Elon Musk says

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said his space internet project is ready for public use following the latest launch of Starlink satellites.

SpaceX delivered a further 60 satellites into low-Earth orbit this week, bringing the total number close to 800.

The private space firm hopes to eventually launch tens of thousands of Starlink satellites to create a constellation capable of beaming high-speed broadband down to 99 per cent of the inhabited world.

“Once these satellites reach their target position, we will be able to roll out a fairly wide public beta in northern US and hopefully southern Canada,” Musk tweeted following the launch.

“Other countries to follow as soon as we receive regulatory approval.”

The Starlink network has already been tested on a limited scale, providing internet to emergency responders in the US following recent wildfires.

Jim Cramer Calls AMD His Best Stock Pick Ever

AMD is reportedly interested in acquiring Xilinx and has been in talks about a possible acquisition.

The Wall Street Journal first reported that the two were in talks.

The Journal said the pair were in advanced merger talks that could value Xilinx at more than $30 billion, a 16% premium to the group’s closing price on Wall Street last night. Xilinx’s data-center chips have become much more valuable since the coronavirus pandemic triggered a surge in work-from-home dynamics that have pressured companies around the world to improve their technology and storage capabilities.

AMD, meanwhile, has seen its share price rise nearly 90% so far this year, taking its market value past $100 billion, a move that gives the chipmaker substantial firepower — despite a small net cash position of just $1.1 billion — to absorb Xilinx in an all-stock deal.

Jim Cramer said that investors don’t need to worry about

Software AG, one of the largest software companies in the world, has suffered a ransomware attack over the last weekend, and the company has not yet fully recovered from the incident.

A ransomware gang going by the name of “Clop” has breached the company’s internal network on Saturday, October 3, encrypted files, and asked for more than $20 million to provide the decryption key.

Earlier today, after negotiations failed, the Clop gang published screenshots of the company’s data on a website the hackers operate on the dark web (a so-called leak site).

The screenshots show employee passport and ID scans, employee emails, financial documents, and directories from the company’s internal network.

The unreasonable effectiveness of the Julia programming language

Ain’t no party like a programming language virtual conference party

I’ve been running into a lot of happy and excited scientists lately. “Running into” in the virtual sense, of course, as conferences and other opportunities to collide with scientists in meatspace have been all but eliminated. Most scientists believe in the germ theory of disease.

Anyway, these scientists and mathematicians are excited about a new tool. It’s not a new particle accelerator nor a supercomputer. Instead, this exciting new tool for scientific research is… a computer language.

How can a computer language be exciting, you ask? Surely, some are better than others, depending on your purposes and priorities. Some run faster, while others are quicker and easier to develop in. Some have a larger ecosystem, allowing you to borrow battle-tested code from a library and do less of the work yourself. Some are well-suited to particular types of problems, while
