An irreplaceable archive of documents from William Hewlett and David Packard, co-founders of a little company called Hewlett Packard, have been confirmed destroyed in a wildfire which has ripped through California' Santa Rosa.Founded in 1938 by William Hewlett and David Packard with little more than a garage and a joint $538 in savings, Hewlett Packard is one of the world's largest technology companies.While split in twain in 2015 with HP Inc. taking on the consumer market and Hewlett Packard Enterprise the business sector, HP sits in second place just short of Chinese technology giant Lenovo for number of PC units shipped as of 2016 and controls over a third of the global printer market.Key documents from its founders have been destroyed, however, in a wildfire which hit California's Santa Rosa.The Press Democrat reports on the complete destruction of an archive containing over 100 boxes of 'writings, correspondence, speeches, and other items' from the two technologists, valued in 2005 at almost $2 million and stored in a pair of temporary modular buildings - moved, according to former HP archivist Karen Lewis, from special fireproof vaults inside a permanent structure which could have protected them from the fire.The archives had been formerly under HP control, but in 2014 HP spin-off Keysight Technologies acquired the documents from fellow HP alumnus Agilent Technologies, resulting in the move away from the dedicated storage facility.
The area's transformation happened gradually, over a period of more than 100 years.Silicon Valley is an almost $3 trillion neighborhood thanks to companies like Apple, Google, and Tesla.In the late 1800s, San Francisco's port helped make it a hub of the early telegraph and radio industries.In 1939, the Ames Research Center was founded in the area, and it became home to the world's largest wind tunnel in 1949.Also in 1939, William Hewlett and Dave Packard founded Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto, which originally made oscilloscopes.Then, during World War II, HP made radar and artillery technology.
p The question of how Virtual Reality will transform creative industries such as Film is a big one, but Cannes certainly seemed like an appropriate place to tackle it.So in between attending red carpet screenings, gawking at mega yachts and indulging in some celebrity spotting (Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell and Mads Mikkelsen all in one day!)I attended a series of talks and panels hosted by HP, most of which revolved around the interplay between technology and creativity, with VR being a hot topic.“Believe me, when we are looking at VR today we are looking at the punch cards of our generation.We are operating in DOS 3.0,” said Shane Wall, HP’s Chief Technology Officer and head of HP Labs, which also happens to be the world’s longest standing corporate research labs.Yes, he concedes, there are limitations with both AR and VR technologies – Virtual Reality can feel isolating as it shuts out the outside world and there are issues with display and field of view with Augmented Reality, but those are the limitations of today, and we will move beyond that, perhaps much more quickly than we might think.
Through its growth, the company has retained, at its core, the heart of a startup; staying adaptable and innovative.This means pioneering the sustainable, flexible, and collaborative future of work, from flex-time and casual Fridays, to paid time off for volunteering in the community or work on blue sky projects.And, as the future of work continues to evolve, HP Inc is making sure the office of the future is ready for it.“Employees are becoming more productive than they were ten years ago,” explains marketing manager EMEA printing, Rafael Ponte Araujo.“Five years into the future they're going to be even more productive than now.That's a result of increasing numbers of millennials, whose way of working is faster and more efficient – they have a work/life blend, there's no separation between the personal and professional.”
It gets tens of thousands of visitors each year, but where and what is the birthplace of Silicon Valley?CBR gives you the fascinating facts behind the birthplace of Silicon Valley.In 1938, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard decided to 'make a run for it' in business.Packard left his job at GE in New York and returned to Palo Alto while Hewlett looked for a place to set up shop.Hewitt found a perfect place in suburbia, with the 12x18 foot garage the main selling point of the property on Addison Avenue.The house had a three-room, ground floor flat for Packard and his wife Lucille, while Hewlett got the shed out back.
Go home Grsss chK6, you're drunkThe Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence Institute is launching a pilot experiment that will hunt for signs of alien civilisation using the Murchison Widefield Array, a low frequency radio telescope.Researchers at the SETI Institute published a paper outlining the experiment today in the Astrophysical Journal.The not-for-profit institute was set up in 1984, and has been financially backed by some of the biggest names in science and technology, including Carl Sagan, William Hewlett, David Packard, Gordon Moore and Paul Allen.The SETI Institute states that its mission is to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe, and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations.In order to understand the nature of life in the universe, it has to look for it.
