April 5 in history: Windows was allowed to live on the “Macs”, Google Maps has acquired images from the satellite, and Intel released the first Intel Atom

April 5, 2006 ago, Apple released software called Boot Camp. It is allowed to do what people make fun of to this day is to install Windows second operating system on the PCs and laptops produced by “Apple” company. According to Apple, she went to meet numerous requests of users, making this procedure not only formally possible, but simple and intuitive.

But was the company and their interest is finally to draw into his camp people who have long looked at Apple products, but I was afraid to abandon Windows and usual programs, not all of which had analogs under Mac OS. Influenced this move as well that the new MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac mini now had on Board Intel and, in General, the standard for any other non-Apple laptop hardware on which Windows can operate without any third-party emulators.
April 5, 2005 Google announced a new feature in Google Maps – satellite images. From now on everyone could try to peek and see what’s going on on the roofs of skyscrapers across the USA and Canada. To other countries and corners of the world Google gets some later.

5 April 2005 – the emergence of satellite imagery in Google Maps
Satellite images appeared in the map service Google shortly after launch of the service in February 2005. It does not need any special software – the user could (though why I could, maybe to this day) flipping the world right in their browser window. And satellite images, of course, brings not only comfort, but also just disturbing feelings in the spirit of “future today”.
Interestingly, the satellite images were added after purchase Google mapping company Keyhole in 2004, and the word Keyhole (“keyhole”) in the second half of the twentieth century was also the name of a series of American reconnaissance satellites.
April 5, 1988 RISC-processor Intel i960, received in the early 1990’s most popular microcontroller for embedded systems and has become a bestseller in this field. And in 2008 appear the Intel Atom processor – Z500, Z520, etc. They are famous because, thanks to low power consumption and heat generation, gave life to such a class of computers as “netbooks” – tiny laptops with a display size of just 10 inches. To work for this laptop can up to 6 hours on a single charge, and before the MacBook Air was a spectacular result. It was achieved due to the fact that Intel first decided not just a little “buggy” available processors, making them less greedy, and to create a new architecture, initially focused on low power consumption.

The reverse side of the revolutionary economical Atom processors became very modest performance. So modest that with the appearance on the market of iPad and other tablets, the crowd immediately lost interest in netbooks. However, in the past they could sometimes be found even in a lady’s handbag (and often in the color of the handbag or lipstick, as netbooks often had a large number of body colors to choose from).
Although short of the glory of netbooks gone through, energy-efficient Atom chips continue to evolve. Now they can be found in tablets and even smartphones, but not for such thoughtful, as were netbooks.
