    The movement toward a cashless society is by no means a new phenomenon. The introduction, in the 1860's, of checks into the monetary system of the United States initiated the transformation of the American monetary system from a “cash-based” community to a cashless society. In fact, it has been estimated recently that over 90% of the total dollar volume of payments made in the United... View full abstract»

    The nature and extent of legal protection available for computer programs is somewhat uncertain because of their abstract nature. The law has historically been willing to recognize rights in concrete objects such as real estate and tangible personal property. Where disputes arise as to rights to such tangible objects, the courts can define the subject of the dispute and give a judgment which is ce... View full abstract»

    In the late 1960's, not many people had direct experience in designing or working with supercomputers, but at least there was little confusion over what the term “supercomputer” meant.

Today, we know a good deal more about this category of machine, but it's getting... View full abstract»
