A hypertext programming environment for the Macintosh introduced by Apple in 1987. The HyperCard model consists of cards, and collections of cards, called stacks. You can connect the cards in various ways, and leaf through them the way you would with a set of Rolodex cards. In addition to data, each card can contain graphics and buttons that trigger other events, such as sound or video.
Each object in a HyperCard system — stack, card, text field, button, or background — can have a script associated with it. A script is a set of instructions that specify what actions should take place when a user selects an object with the mouse or when some other event occurs.
Writing HyperCard applications is known as authoring.
In hypermedia systems, a HyperDisco architecture is based on three levels of tools consisting of a combination of hypermedia tools and integrated third-party applications, as well as tool integrators. Tool integrators provide the hypermedia services to tools and act as session managers to coordinate a users’ access to multiple workspaces. In this system, the workspace […]
A collaboration tool with features ranging from e-mail to shared workspaces to project management. It offers Outlook integration that specifically targets the challenges of extended team members, and also helps users break free from reliance on Exchange or SharePoint. Some of its newest features include collaboration tools that connect the Apple iPhone to corporate e-mail, […]
HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low-latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies. HyperTransport technology is usually integrated directly into the processor, but in some cases HyperTransport is used as an integrated, […]
- Hyper CD-ROM
The Hyper CD-ROM is a tri-dimensional multilayer optical memory, based on the phenomenon of controlled extinction of the fluorescence. The Hyper CD-ROM allows the recording of information inside the a glass disk using laser beams. The glass disk has a storing capacity of over 10,000 Gigabytes (GB) of memory. The Hyper CD-ROM was invented by […]
A technology developed by Intel that enables multithreaded software applications to execute threads in parallel on a single multi-core processor instead of processing threads in a linear fashion. Older systems took advantage of dual-processing threading in software by splitting instructions into multiple streams so that more than one processor could act upon them at once.
