L-Star Software Defined Computer as an Apple I.

L-Star Software Defined Computer as an Apple I.
I’m demo-ing Jac Goudsmit’s L-Star software defined retro computer I built from a kit. It uses a Parallax Propeller, 6502, and RAM chip to emulate different classic 8 bit computers. Here it is pretending to be an Apple I.

Buy it on tindie:

HP’s ‘The Machine’ is 8000X Faster Than Traditional Computers & Tech Is Coming Near You Soon
HP computers have been busy working on ‘The machine’ a super computer with 8 Terabytes of work ram and up to 8000 times faster than a traditional computer.

It does this by leveraging photonics to transfer data much faster than traditional wires and circuitry and combines this with a special RAM architecture.

Review – Apple 12" MacBook vs 13" MacBook Air Comparison Smackdown

Review – Apple 12" MacBook vs 13" MacBook Air Comparison Smackdown
A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action. Machines are usually powered by chemical, thermal, or electrical means, and are often motorized. Historically, a power tool also required moving parts to classify as a machine. However, the advent of electronics has led to the development of power tools without moving parts that are considered machines.

A simple machine is a device that simply transforms the direction or magnitude of a force, but a large number of more complex machines exist. Examples include vehicles, electronic systems, molecular machines, computers, television, and radio.
he word machine derives from the Latin word machina,[1] which in turn derives from the Greek (Doric μαχανά makhana, Ionic μηχανή mekhane “contrivance, machine, engine”, a derivation from μῆχος mekhos “means, expedient, remedy”). The word mechanical comes from the same Greek roots. However, the Ancient Greeks probably have borrowed the word “mekhane” from the ancient Hebrews. The word “Mekhonot” plural and “Mekhona” singular mentioned in the Hebrew Bible – Torah; these “Mekhonot” were the ten contraption on four wheels that stood at the Holy Temple of Jerusalem, built by King Solomon-(2 Chronicles 4:14). The ancient Greeks were familiar with the Hebrew Scriptures and language, and often borrowed words and terms.

A wider meaning of “fabric, structure” is found in classical Latin, but not in Greek usage.

This meaning is found in late medieval French, and is adopted from the French into English in the mid-16th century.

In the 17th century, the word could also mean a scheme or plot, a meaning now expressed by the derived machination. The modern meaning develops out of specialized application of the term to stage engines used in theater and to military siege engines, both in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The OED traces the formal, modern meaning to John Harris’ Lexicon Technicum (1704), which has:

Machine, or Engine, in Mechanicks, is whatsoever hath Force sufficient either to raise or stop the Motion of a Body… Simple Machines are commonly reckoned to be Six in Number, viz. the Ballance, Leaver, Pulley, Wheel, Wedge, and Screw… Compound Machines, or Engines, are innumerable.
The word engine used as a (near-)synonym both by Harris and in later language derives ultimately (via Old French) from Latin ingenium “ingenuity, an invention”.

Installing Mac OSX Sierra in VirtualBox | Hacking S’cool – Beginners

Installing Mac OSX Sierra in VirtualBox | Hacking S’cool – Beginners
DISCLAIMER

This is for educational, training and security research purposes only! Do not attempt to violate the law with anything contained here.

SUMMARY/CONTENT

Hacking S’cool will show how to install the Apple Mac OSX 10.12 “Sierra” in Oracle VirtualBox in Linux.

The procedure is very similar in Windows and Mac.

To learn hacking it is very important to have several computers with the most popular operating systems.

You cannot hack a computer with Mac OSX if you don’t try how to do it previously!

Here is where virtual machines are very valuable: you can practice with different computers and operating systems your hacking techniques.

We will use a pre-installed copy of Mac OSX “Sierra” created by TechReviews.

The original code for VirtualBox 5.x.x was modified adding a new VBoxManage statement to change display resolution and put it all together into a bash script called fixvb5.sh (because I’m using VirtualBox 5.1.10 in Linux)

If you are using Linux, after downloading the script, don’t forget to give it the execution permission:

chmod +x fixvb5.sh

If you are using Windows, execute the script as Administrator.

To use the script, please don’t include blanks in the mac osx virtual machine name. If the name is “my mac osx”, please write “my-mac-osx”.

In this case:

./fixvb5.sh my-mac-osx

Thanks to TechsViewer for their nice article and thanks to TechReviews for their excellent Mac OSX “Sierra” virtual machine.
