This sounds pretty much like a manager controlling a bunch of people who report to him, and I think this is a useful metaphor for how people will deal with PCs in future. I want to be able to give my PC various tasks to get on with, and then I would like it to report back to me how things are going, in ways which I want to control. I expect the PC controller to 'delegate' most tasks to particular software 'experts', and deal with them according to an agreed set of principles.

When exactly is it in life when you expect that your becoming an adult? For me I think I'm still in transition. I am ready for the real world but I still trying to get use to being responsible. I got a job for the responsibility and to make money but when I should be accounting for how much money I make I simply slack off. In fact I don't even do it.

American Colonies - 606 words
The New England, Southern and Middle Colonies Developed Differently America was a place for dreams and new beginnings, until white people arrived in 1607. Three groups sailed over the treacherous Atlantic from their cruel lives in England to set up peaceful religious colonies. The only problem is that they attempted to settle in their own way and all failed dismally. The New England, Middle and Southern Colonies grew differently over the period 1619-1760.Examining the three sets of colonies will prove that they were all different: socially, economically, politically but not philosophically. Socially the three groups of colonies developed differently. The New England Colonies life was dominat ...

The Tragic Hero In Antigone - 1,422 words
The Tragic Hero in the Play Antigone Antigone, which was written by Sophocles, is possibly the first written play that still exists today (www.imagi 1). There is much controversy between who the tragic hero is in the play. Some people say Antigone, some say Creon, others even say Heamon. I believe Creon displays all of the characteristics of a tragic hero. He receives compassion through the audience, yet recognizes his weaknesses, and his downfalls from his own self-pride, stubbornness, and controlling demands. He is the true protagonist. Though the audience notices how villainous Creon is, they still express sympathy towards him. They realize that he has brought all of his problems on himse ...

Prejudgment Of The World - 799 words
The story A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is full of symbols that carry the real theme of the story. First, the appearance of the angel was old, with bad smell and parasite grown on the huge buzzard wings. The wings were dirty and half-plucked, and were forever entangled in the mud. The author made the appearance of the angel very unpleasant which makes a contradiction to our prejudice. We all think that angel should be very beautiful and clean, but this angel is just opposite of what we thought. If the old man was really an angel, this is a test to the villagers complexity of thinking. Though the old man was an angel, the people around him did not treat him as a holy creature. They did n ...

... signifying that the boy had become a man and was ready for marriage. A girl's transition to adolescence came with her first menstruation, at which time she was placed in temporary isolation for up to a month or even longer. With further maturation, marked by the growth of her breasts, she exchanged the clothes of childhood for those of the adult woman. At this time, women were tattooed by making a series of closely drawn parallel lines extending from the center of the lower lip to the chin. In the early 1960s, a few women of sixty-five or more still carried these symbols of early womanhood; but by then the custom marking differences in age and gender had become obsolete. Much of the Inu ...

Let the bastards come now, he thought, just let them come! This time he'd be ready for them, and he was. He had his crossbow in hand, a long hunting knife on his leather belt, and a vicious-looking machete on the low coffee-table near the large front window through which he had a fair view of the path leading up to the house. The house was in darkness except for a single light in the hall, it was a ploy. It was obvious to him that no experienced burglar would go for a place in complete darkness in case the owner was upstairs in bed. But a single, solitary light in an otherwise darkened house was usually a sign that the place was empty and that was what he wanted them to think. Twice he'd bee ...

The Human Genome Project - 611 words
At the beginning of the project, the Human Genome Project was compared to the Manhattan Project or the mission to put men on the moon. It was considered so broad and so complex that the funding could only come from the government. The Human Genome project is now in the hands of private labs. Those labs have forced the Human Genome Project into a rush to finish first. The Human Genome Project is a task that wishes to document all of the genes (over 100,000 of them) in the human body. From these genes, scientists want to find out specifically what their function is and they want to find out what malfunctions in the genes may trigger diseases such as cancer or heart disease. Scientists began th ...

Should We Use Nutrasweet And Other Artificial Sweeteners - 1,998 words
Should We Use NutraSweet & Other Artificial Sweeteners? Over the years there has been a huge "food fight" concerning the safety of NutraSweet and other artificial sweeteners. In the eyes of the consumer the safety of such products is questionable. In my opinion it isn't safe to use products like this. Though many scientists and other health professionals claim it to be safe I still don't trust these products. In 1981 the little blue packets of NutraSweet appeared on our restaurant tables, and by 1983 NutraSweet was being widely used in diet sodas. But as soon as this wonder of nutritional science appeared on the scene, there was great controversy over its safety. A component in NutraSweet, a ...
