Computer Organization The dictionary definition of the term “organizing” is “to put together into an orderly, functional, structured whole”. Therefore, this term applies to Computer Organization because it tries “to put together into an orderly, functional, structured whole” the main components of computers and the way computers are organized.
Modern computer technology requires professionals of every computing specialty to understand both hardware and software. The interaction between hardware and software at a variety of levels also offers a framework for understanding the fundamentals of computing. Whether our primary interacts is hardware or software, Information Technology, Computer Science or Electrical Engineering, the central ideas in Computer Organization is the same. Thus, the emphasis of this is to show the relationship between hardware and software and to focus on the concepts that are the basis for current computers.
The computer lies at the heart of computing. Without it, most of the computing disciplines today would be a branch of theoretical mathematics. To be a professional in any field of computing today, one should not regard the computer as just black box that executes program by magic. We, students of computing should acquire some understanding and appreciation of a computer system’s functional components, their characteristics, their performance, and their instruction. There are practical implications as well.
In describing computer systems, a distinguishing feature is frequently made between Computer Organization and Computer Architecture. Computer Organization explains the function and design of the various units of digital computers (displaying information as numbers rather than with hands and a dial) that store and process information. It also deals with the input units of the computer which receive information from external sources…...

...Accountability and Ethics Computer Addiction and Cyber Crime Nick Nykodym The University of Toledo Sonny Ariss The University of Toledo Katarina Kurtz The University of Toledo This research explores the relationship between computer addiction and cyber crime. There is evidence of computer addiction in medical settings, scholarly journals and legal proceedings. Reviewing the history of computer addiction has shown that computer addiction can be related to cyber crime. This paper will define computer addiction, show how various cyber crimes, especially those against businesses and organizations, can be motivated by computer addiction and propose further research on how managers can deal with cyber crime in a business, by recognizing addictive behaviors and computer addiction in their employees. HISTORY OF COMPUTER ADDICTION Computer addiction is an idea that has been in existence for years. Since the 1970s, avid computer programmers and hackers have been called “addicts” by both psychologists and the general public (Reed, 2002, p. 135). In 1976, Weizenbaum wrote about computer programmers who could sit and work at their computer terminals for twenty or thirty hours at a time. This behavior however, was viewed at the time as useful to technology and society. Computers, once seen as huge government machines that only very knowledgeable people could use, transformed into user-friendly tools that could be used by the everyday person. It became more common to see computers in......

...My organization and plan was to decide how much time I needed to complete each topic and how. I gave myself a half hour for each topic and did a five day span. I also decided to start with the easiest subject to the hardest subject, which was Reading, Writing, and then Math. The tools were helpful, it allowed me to take notes and re learn what I had forgotten, which will help me in the future. The process seemed to go slow and take a while, which was perfect for me, it gave me enough time to think and answer the question. The results weren’t surprising at all, I’ve always have had a strong skill in reading and writing. Math has always been a sore subject, and going from sitting in class everyday to nothing for two years, didn’t help either. *Reading: Active Reading, Vocabulary, Summarizing and Paraphrasing *Writing: Essay Organization, Essay Introduction, Conclusion, and Titles *Math: Comparing and Rounding Whole Numbers, Exponents and Roots, The Order of Operations Yes, I believe I’m self-motivated to complete Learning Path topics in the future. The learning lab gives me enough time and enough tools to help me through a problem that I’m having difficulty with. The resources I would need for my self-motivation is just support from my family and friends. That is why I finally started school again, they all believe in my dreams as much as I do. Career Services would make a huge impacted in my self-motivation. They help with finding open jobs in a career that you want and......

...What is Computer : Computer is an electronic device that is designed to work with Information.The term computer is derived from the Latin term ‘computare’, this means to calculate.Computer can not do anything without a Program.it represents the decimal numbers through a string of binary digits. The Word 'Computer'usually refers to the Center Processor Unit plus Internal memory. Computer is an advanced electronic device that takes raw data as input from the user and processes these data under the control of set of instructions (called program) and gives the result (output) and saves output for the future use. It can process both numerical and non-numerical (arithmetic and logical) calculations.The basic components of a modern digital computer are: Input Device,Output Device,Central Processor. A Typical modern computer uses LSI Chips. Charles Babbage is called the "Grand Father" of the computer.The First mechanical computer designed by charles Babbage was called Analytical Engine. It uses read-only memory in the form of punch cards. Four Functions about computer are: accepts data | Input | processes data | Processing | produces output | Output | stores results | Storage | Input (Data): Input is the raw information entered into a computer from the input devices. It is the collection of letters, numbers, images etc. Process: Process is the operation of data as per given instruction. It is totally internal process of the computer system. Output:......

...INSTRUCTION SET The instruction set, also called instruction set architecture (ISA), is a part of the computer that pertains to programming, which is basically machine language. The collection of different instructions that the CPU can execute is referred to as the CPU’s instruction set. A machine instruction should contain the following elements: * Operation code: Specifies the operation to be performed. * Source operand reference: The reference to the operand should be there in the instruction. * Result operand reference: The address of the memory where output should be stored must be mentioned. * Next instruction reference: This tells CPU where to find the next instruction to be executed. All the machine instructions can be categorized in to the following types: * Data processing: This classification contains arithmetic instructions which provide computational capabilities for processing numeric data and logical instructions which operate on the bits of a word as bits. * Data storage: This classification contains instruction to store data in memory and the registers. * Data movement: This classification contains instructions to move data between memory and the registers. These instructions are also known as I/O instructions. * Control: This classification contains test instructions that are used to test the value of a data word or the status of a computation and branch instructions that are used to branch to a different set of......

Importance of Securing Data and Software More Than Computer Hardware in an Organization

...SECURING DATA AND SOFTWARE MORE THAN COMPUTER HARDWARE IN AN ORGANIZATION BY DHUMISAN CHISI SUBMITTED TO MR MWEKHELA IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT FOR THE COURSE FUNDAMENTALS OF INFORMATION SYSTEMS COURSE CODE CCC1073 THE MALAWI ASSEMBLIES OF GOD UNIVERSITY 23TH MARCH 2015 Information systems have long been at some risk from malicious actions or unplanned user errors and from natural and man-made disasters. In recent years, systems have become more at risk to these threats because computers have become more organized and, thus, more interdependent and accessible to a larger number of individuals. In addition, the number of individuals with computer skills is increasing, and intrusion, or “hacking,” techniques are becoming more widely known via the Internet and other media. In large organizations computers are kept in large scales and also store a lot of important data and information plus maybe softwares of the at most important. These softwares and information require to be kept safe and protected. It is the sole purpose of this paper to explain the reasons why it is important to secure the organizations data/information and computer softwares of an organization. Some of the information used in business organization requires special protection for confidentiality (to ensure that only those who need access to that information to do their jobs actually have access to it). Some of the information used in business organizations need protection for......

...Organizations & Behaviour/ Assignment 1 What exactly is an organization structure? It’s the usual hierarchical order of lines of authority, connections, rights and duties of an organization. The organizational structure depends how the roles, power and responsibilities are allocated, controlled and coordinated and how information flows between the different levels of management. Now that I’ve given a basic description on an organization structure, let’s move towards my report in which I chose to identify and explain similarities and differences between the two most known organizations worldwide; Yahoo and Google. Why not Twitter or Facebook or any other organization? Why would I choose Google and Yahoo? Well, as most of us might already know, Yahoo and Google are one of the two top rated websites on the internet and computer software industry! In addition; both organizations have a quite interesting continued history of rivalry. Google Inc has received a lot of attention and praise for its remarkable organizational culture, which is designed to support both devotion and creativeness. Google has created many important products through this emphasis on modernization, such as the Google search engine, Google Maps and the Google Chrome Web browser. The company is now much bigger than it was when the organizational culture first developed, forcing some changes to the original model. However, Google is one of the organizations to appeal to probable employees, and is......

...Homework 5 CNT 4007 Spring 2016 1. A LAN has a data rate of 4 Mbps and a propagation delay between two stations at opposite ends of 20 µs. For what range of PDU sizes does stop-and-wait give an efficiency of at least 50%? 2. A disadvantage of the contention approach for LANs is the capacity wasted due to multiple stations attempting to access the channel at the same time. Suppose that time is divided into discrete slots, with each stations attempting to transmit with probability p during each slot. What fraction of slots are wasted due to multiple simultaneous transmission attempts? 3. A simple medium access control protocol would be to use a fixed assignment time division multiplexing (TDM) scheme. Each station is assigned one time slot per cycle for transmission. For the bus, the length of each slot is the time to transmit 100 bits plus the ene-to-end propagation delay. For the ring, assume a delay of 1 bit time per station, and assume that a round-robin assignment is used. Stations monitor all time slots for reception. Assume a propagation time of 2×108 m/s. For N stations, what is the throughput per station for a. A 1-Km, 10 Mbps baseband bus b. A 10-Mbps ring with a total length of 1Km 4. Consider two stations on a baseband bus at a distance of 1Km from each other. Let the data rate be 1 Mbps, the frame length be 100 bits, and the propagation velocity be 2 ×108 m/s. Assume that each station generates frames at an average rate of 104 frames......
