The personal computer (PC), which first hit the market over 30 years ago, has undergone
tectonic changes that, in turn, launched the PC era. PCs were primarily used in
the workplace where software was simple and optimized for use with the keyboard;
touching a screen was unheard of until recently. Slowly computers began creeping into
the home and many users didn’t know what to do with them; they were glorified typewriters.
When PCs started connecting to the Internet, possibilities reached a new level, which
had a snowball effect.
THE mud was black and oily where it spread thinly at the edges of the asphalt, and wherever it touched it left
a stain; it was upon the leather of every pedestrian, even the most fastidious, and it bordered with almost
laughable conspicuousness the higher marking of yellow clay upon the heavy shoes of David Jasper, where he
stood at the curb in front of the big hotel with his young friend, Edward Lamb. Absorbed in "lodge," talk,
neither of the oddly assorted cronies cared much for drizzle overhead or mire underfoot; but a splash of black
mud in the face must necessarily command some...
Other aspects of the evaluation process—like overall sales, App Store popularity, professional reviews, and user ratings—held less sway, but couldn’t be ignored. After all, when you see that Angry Birds (page 116) is the best-selling game several weeks in a row, gets overwhelmingly rave reviews, and has a devoted fan base around the world, you wonder what all the fuss is about and download the game. (And when the app’s sheer inventiveness consumes so much time that it nearly causes the author to miss a deadline, the app tends to get included in Best iPhone Apps...
Against time: chạy đua với thời gian. Ex: They’ll be working against time to get it finished (Họ chạy đua với thời gian để hoàn thành công việc). At all times: luôn luôn. Ex: I am at your service at all times. (Tôi luôn luôn sẵn sàng phục vụ ông.) Ahead of time (at an earlier time than people expected): trước thời
hạn, sớm hơn chờ đợi. Ex: The plane touched down about half an hour ahead of time. (Máy bay hạ cánh trước thời hạn khoảng nửa giờ.)...

The definitive report on what caused America's economic meltdown— and who was responsible
The financial and economic crisis has touched the lives of millions of Americans who have lost their jobs and their homes, but many have little understanding of how it happened. Now, in this very accessible report, readers can get the facts.

Everyday I love you Boyzone
I don't know but I believe
That some things are meant to be
And that you'll make a better me
Everyday I love you
I never thought that dreams came true
But you showed me that they do
You know that I learn something new
Everyday I love you
'Cos I believe that destiny
Is out of our control (don't you know that I do)
And you'll never live until you love
With all your heart and soul.
It's a touch when I feel bad
It's a smile when I get mad
All the little things I am
Everyday I love you
Everyday I love you boy...

In this account of 60 years of Bible translation, Eugene Nida sets out his journey with a personal touch. On the way, he reveals the importance of a solid knowledge of Greek and Hebrew as well as of the historical settings in which the Bible was created, in order to render effective translations. Through his story we get to know Nida's views on translations through the ages, in different cultures and narrative traditions, right through to the 21st Century. This book is in the first place a study in anthropological linguistics that tells the rich history of Bible translation, the...
I’d like to imagine you picked this book because its title caught your interest. I suppose you want to make 2D games for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and the game engine of your choice is cocos2d for iOS. Or maybe you don’t care so much about the game engine but you do want to make 2D games for iOS devices in general. Maybe you’re looking for some in-depth discussion on cocos2d, if you’ve been using it for a while already. Whatever your reasons for choosing this book, I’m sure you’ll get a lot out it.

The 3G networking feature detects a USB network card automatically and supports all three systems: WCDMA, CDMA2000 and TD-SCDMA. The version we used when we compiled this manual is Android-2.3.2
The bootloader that Android uses is very similar to the one for Linux. The only differences lie on the configurations.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been from its beginning the wave of evolution in computer
science. It is in good health and a proof of it is the fact that many companies qualify its
novelties as ‘smart’ or ‘intelligent’ independently of the features included in them; the term
‘society of knowledge’ has been imposed to draw society nearer to the future and a symbol
