    Title: @war
    Author: HARRIS SHANE

    Recent revelations from Edward Snowden and others have shown government agencies in the US, UK and elsewhere joining with tech giants like Google and Facebook to collect vast amounts of information. But, as @War shows, email hacking and data collection are only a small part of a much bigger, more complicated and shocking picture. It is not only security operations that have moved on to the internet, in the future our wars will be fought on-line too.


    In fact, they already are. The United States military currently views cyberspace as the 'fifth domain' of warfare (alongside land, air, sea, and space), and the US Department of Defense, the National Security Agency, and the CIA all field teams of hackers who can, and do, launch computer virus strikes against enemy targets. In fact U.S. hackers played a significant role in the recent war in Iraq.


    The majority of civil infrastructure is now run across the internet - financial systems, hospitals, nuclear power stations, to name but three. Barack Obama labelled the internet 'a strategic national asset' and the military has formed a new alliance with tech and finance companies to patrol cyberspace, 'actively defending' America's digital infrastructure.


    In @War Shane Harris delves into the frontlines of this new cyber war and explains what the new cyber-security regime means for all of us who spend our daily lives bound to the Internet - and are vulnerable to its dangers.

    Providing abundance is humanity's grandest challenge-this is a book about how we rise to meet& it.

    &

    We will soon be able to meet and exceed the basic needs of every man, woman and child on the planet. Abundance for all is within our grasp. This bold, contrarian view, backed up by exhaustive research, introduces our near-term future, where exponentially growing technologies and three other powerful forces are conspiring to better the lives of billions. An antidote to pessimism by tech entrepreneur turned philanthropist, Peter H. Diamandis and award-winning science writer Steven Kotler.&

    Since the dawn of humanity, a privileged few have lived in stark contrast to the hardscrabble majority. Conventional wisdom says this gap cannot be closed. But it is closing-fast.& The authors document how four forces-exponential technologies, the DIY innovator, the Technophilanthropist, and the Rising Billion-are conspiring to solve our biggest problems. Abundance establishes hard targets for change and& lays out a strategic roadmap for governments, industry and entrepreneurs, giving us plenty of reason for optimism.

    Examining human need by category-water,& food,& energy,& healthcare, education, freedom-Diamandis and Kotler introduce dozens of innovators making great strides in each area: Larry Page, Steven Hawking, Dean Kamen, Daniel Kahneman, Elon Musk, Bill Joy, Stewart Brand, Jeff Skoll, Ray Kurzweil, Ratan Tata, Craig Venter, among many, many others.&

    Title: Apple Revolution the Real Story of How Steve Jobs and the Crazy Ones Took Over the World
    Author: DORMEHL LUKE

    The story behind the rise of the world's largest technology company.
    On May 26, 2010 Apple Inc. passed Microsoft in valuation as the world's largest technology company. Its consumer electronic products -- ranging from computers to mobile phones to portable media devices, not to mention its iTunes, iBook and App Store -- have influenced nearly every facet of our lives, and it shows no sign of slowing down. But how did Apple -- a company set up in the back room of a house by two friends, and one that always marketed itself as the underdog -- become the marketplace leader (and the world's second largest company overall), and is it a good thing to have one company hold so much power?
    In "The Apple Revolution" Luke Dormehl shares the inside story of how Apple Inc. came to be; from the formation of the company's philosophies and user-friendly ethos, to the "iPod moment" and global domination, leaving you with a deep understanding of how it was created, why it has flourished, and where it might be going next.

    Title: Automate This: How Algorithms Came to Rule Our World
    Author: STEINER CHRISTOPHER

    The rousing story of the last gasp of human agency and how today’s best and brightest minds are endeavoring to put an end to it.

    It used to be that to diagnose an illness, interpret legal documents, analyze foreign policy, or write a newspaper article you needed a human being with specific skills—and maybe an advanced degree or two. These days, high-level tasks are increasingly being handled by algorithms that can do precise work not only with speed but also with nuance. These “bots” started with human programming and logic, but now their reach extends beyond what their creators ever expected.
    In this fascinating, frightening book, Christopher Steiner tells the story of how algorithms took over—and shows why the “bot revolution” is about to spill into every aspect of our lives, often silently, without our knowledge.
    The May 2010 “Flash Crash” exposed Wall Street’s reliance on trading bots to the tune of a 998-point market drop and $1 trillion in vanished market value. But that was just the beginning. InAutomate This, we meet bots that are driving cars, penning haiku, and writing music mistaken for Bach’s. They listen in on our customer service calls and figure out what Iran would do in the event of a nuclear standoff. There are algorithms that can pick out the most cohesive crew of astronauts for a space mission or identify the next Jeremy Lin. Some can even ingest statistics from baseball games and spit out pitch-perfect sports journalism indistinguishable from that produced by humans.
    The interaction of man and machine can make our lives easier. But what will the world look like when algorithms control our hospitals, our roads, our culture, and our national security? What hap­pens to businesses when we automate judgment and eliminate human instinct? And what role will be left for doctors, lawyers, writers, truck drivers, and many others?
    Who knows—maybe there’s a bot learning to do your job this minute.

    ISBN: 9780571214976
    Title: Backroom Boys: The Secret Return of the British Boffin
    Author: SPUFFORD FRANCIS

    A brilliant, beautiful account of how British boffins triumphed across the decades in creating everything from computer games to Martian landers.

    The book contains chapters on the Beagle II, Elite - the 80s computer game, the Blue Streak missile, Concorde, mobile phone technology and the Human Genome Project, among others.

    Britain is the only country in the world to have cancelled its space programme just as it put its first rocket into orbit. Starting with this forgotten episode, 'Backroom Boys' tells the bittersweet story of how one country lost its industrial tradition and got back something else. Sad, inspiring, funny and ultimately triumphant, it follows the technologists whose work kept Concorde flying, created the computer game, conquered the mobile-phone business, saved the human genome for the human race - and who now are sending the Beagle 2 probe to burrow in the cinnamon sands of Mars.
    'Backroom Boys' is a vivid love-letter to quiet men in pullovers, to those whose imaginings take shape not in words but in mild steel and carbon fibre and lines of code. Above all, it is a celebration of big dreams achieved with slender means.

    Author: VOGELSTEIN FRED

    Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google--and how it's reshaping the way we think about technology
    The rise of smartphones and tablets has altered the industry of making computers. At the center of this change are Apple and Google, two companies whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition. In the age of Android and the iPad, these corporations are locked in a feud that will play out not just in the mobile marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world.
    Fred Vogelstein has reported on this rivalry for more than a decade and has rare access to its major players. In "Dogfight," he takes us into the offices and board rooms where company dogma translates into ruthless business; behind outsize personalities like Steve Jobs, Apple's now-lionized CEO, and Eric Schmidt, Google's executive chairman; and inside the deals, lawsuits, and allegations that mold the way we communicate. Apple and Google are poaching each other's employees. They bid up the price of each other's acquisitions for spite, and they forge alliances with major players like Facebook and Microsoft in pursuit of market dominance.
    "Dogfight "reads like a novel: vivid nonfiction with never-before-heard details. This is more than a story about what devices will replace our cell phones and laptops. It's about who will control the content on those devices and where that content will come from--about the future of media and the Internet in Silicon Valley, New York, and Hollywood.
