Inventor of the Week: Archive

I am done arguing with you, I have wasted enough of my time.
Oh, it's like bill gates and windows. he bought the initial technology from someone else.

well, it was sony who understood the importance and implications before others while his invention was overlooked and rejected. so however you want to look at it.

Wrong again, he did not invent the CD

Quote:
Early optical recording technology, which forms the physical basis of videodisc, CD and DVD technology
That is not a CD, he invented the bases of it. The first CD, DVD, are from sony.

And again micro processor
Quote:
Masatoshi Shima (嶋正利 Shima Masatoshi, born on August 22, 1943 in Shizuoka, Japan) was one of the designers of the world's first microprocessor, the Intel 4004, along with Ted Hoff.

Following Marcian "Ted" Hoff's initial conception, Shima designed the 4004 processor at the Intel offices with Hoff and Federico Faggin. His company then sold the rights to use the 4004 to Intel, with the exception of use in business calculators
The first micro processor was the 4004, which was made by Masatoshi Shima and Hoff.

And good that youre done, don't ask a question and then just dismiss the answers.

Do you realize how rude you are? I'm sharing interesting info and you have to make it an ugly issue. what's wrong with you? Moderator cut: personal insults are not permitted

what makes you think i'm trying to say other countries don't have technology or are not technologically advanced? i know america is more technologically advanced in other areas. i would expect it considering it's a different country with more resources and people. but smaller countries have interesting things to share as well. i'm just sharing what other places do have or came up with.

Many administrative offices in Japan still use hand written records..

That being said, so much innovation comes out of the country. South Korea is on par with Japan in my opinion. They are ahead of even Japan in internet speed and cell phone innovation. Ship building, green office buildings, high speed rail are all thriving in South Korea.

The U.S. is in my opinion, third, behind the two countries. We've done a good job of implementing up to date technology in all office buildings.

The US military is the most important when it comes to technology right now. By raw numbers the US is number one. But that is only raw numbers, it does not take into account per capita numbers and daily integration of technology. In the latter the US is falling behind some european countries and Japan/SK. No other country on this planet can compare to the US military science, and no one has claimed to do so, it is the worlds super power. But actually china is the first country to have finally invented a ballistic missle to counter the US navy,

That is wrong, South Korea has the highest internet "penetration rate" but Japan has the highest average internet speed in the world, and also the cheapest per MB. Also china this year just passed south korea in ship building.

This thread has become a war of words amongst a very small number on contributors.

Taking into account the increasing degree of animosity and the decreasing amount of productive discussion, it's time to move on to fresher topics.
