About this deal

Things are always in flux, and with the advent of cheap and widespread computing power there is no reason to think we aren't on the verge of a symbol revolution. This meant the calculator could run on tiny coin-shaped cells rather than the bulky cylindrical batteries of its competitors. J'ai eu un vrai plaisir à lire SHADY CHARACTERS - un peu d'histoire, un peu d'anecdotes, c'est super quand l'on peut lire un livre et avoir vraiment l'impression d'apprendre quelques choses! I’m not exactly sure why book designers would have the horizontal margins the wrong way round, so to speak, but I’d guess at a couple of reasons: to achieve a visually pleasing layout, and to leave some space for marginal notes. The first book in the Shady Hollow series, in which we are introduced to the village of Shady Hollow, a place where woodland creatures live together in harmony–until a curmudgeonly toad turns up dead and the local reporter has to solve the case.

As she stirs up still waters, the fox exposes more than one mystery, and discovers that additional lives are in jeopardy. Houston also spends quite some time on the origin of the official name octothorpe for the symbol; another odd punctuation name "pilcrow" is the backwards P that is used by word processing software to represent paragraph spacing. Conceived by HP’s co-founder, Bill Hewlett, the HP-35 was to be the company’s route out of that niche and into a wider world of consumer electronics.Houston covers this selection of such markings in eleven chapters, the last of which resurrects past suggestions for the use of symbols to denote Irony and Sarcasm, but which so far have not been taken up in any big way. Chris Curry, Sinclair’s friend and one-time employee, explained some years later that the batteries had leaked — not exploded — in an Executive belonging to one Lord Rothschild, a British aristocrat.

the owner simply could not afford the necessary investment to retire his old system and install desk top publishing equipment as the remaining overhead made the company non-competitive with the developing "cottage industry" of independent "DTP" services. I instantly connected with the characters, despite this being an all-animals cast, and I found their human traits to be both relatable and realistic. And HP never looked back: the company that had once built engineering gadgets for engineers now aimed its products at the public at large.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). A w dzisiejszym piśmie, w drukowanych i wyświetlanych znakach, które czytamy na co dzień, a także odręcznych bazgrołach zajmujących coraz mniej miejsca miedzy monitorami komputerów oraz ekranami tabletów i smartfonów, historia ta jest ciagle obecna.
