'I love you': How a badly-coded computer virus caused billions in damage and exposed problems which remain 20 years on

Skinny, with a mop of black hair falling to his eyebrows, he appeared to barely register the journalists’ shouted questions, his only movement the occasional dabbing of sweat from his face with a white towel. Seated to his right, de Guzman’s lawyer Rolando Quimbo had to lean in close to hear the 23-year-old’s mumbled response, which he then repeated in English for the waiting press.

“He is not really aware that the acts imputed to him were indeed done by him,” the lawyer said. “So if you ask me whether or not he was aware of the consequences I would say that he is not aware.”

Twenty years on, the ILOVEYOU virus remains one of the farthest reaching ever. Tens of millions of computers around the world were affected. The fight to contain the malware and track down its author was front page news globally, waking up a largely complacent … Read More

How technology has progressed through the years

I may be a meer 23-year-old born in the 90s, but I still remember the good old days before smartphones, Instagram and tablets took over our lives. Before technology, people use to talk to each face-to-face and meet up without texting “I’m here” first… if you can believe it!

However, when I think back to the Commodore 64 that was kept in the dining room, I suddenly realize how far we have come in such a short space of time.

sales-i has to be thankful for the developments in technology as, without it, we wouldn’t be here. As a small tribute to the boffins who are constantly innovating and enhancing technology, I’d like to share a few before and after shots of our most used gadgets. Hold on tight, we’re going back in time!

Fifty Years of BASIC, the Language That Made Computers Personal

Knowing how to program a computer is good for you, and it’s a shame more people don’t learn to do it.

For years now, that’s been a hugely popular stance. It’s led to educational initiatives as effortless sounding as the Hour of Code (offered by Code.org) and as obviously ambitious as Code Year (spearheaded by Codecademy).

Even President Obama has chimed in. Last December, he issued a YouTube video in which he urged young people to take up programming, declaring that “learning these skills isn’t just important for your future, it’s important for our country’s future.”

I find the “everybody should learn to code” movement laudable. And yet it also leaves me wistful, even melancholy. Once upon a time, knowing how to use a computer was virtually synonymous with knowing how to program one. And the thing that made it possible was a programming language called BASIC.
