C. The merging of existing technologies to create new technologies

Best answer:

Answer by no1home2day
Yes, the operating system is, in deed, located on the computer.

Yes, there is, in fact, a process that loads the operating system into the computer and stores it in the main memory.

The last question is “E) None of the above”

If this is for a homework assignment (and it look suspiciously like it is), then please don’t have other people do your homework FOR you – what do YOU learn by copying someone else’s answers? That’s called “cheating”, and when I was in college, it was grounds for dismissal!

But what if someone DOES answer your questions, then if a similar question is on a test, and you’re not able to ask your questions here in Yahoo, what will you do?

I think it’s best you study, do the research yourself, and actually learn something. Nobody gets a free pass, and if you got a job and treated your job the same way, you won’t have that job for too very long.

    Depending on the device, there may not be a hard drive so in some situations, ROM is used (think of the cell phone that uses memory rather than a disk). I guess you could go with “D” as an option though if you consider virtual operating systems (VMWare, MS Virtual PC, etc…).

    What is the name of the process which loads the operating system into the computer and stores it in the main memory?
    => In a simplistic way, the answer would be C. Booting. I’d argue that it is overly simplistic since many thing occur during start-up.

    Which trend does not describe the current development of new information technologies?
    => Neither of those answers applies. New development is often a derivative of existing technology, either by variation or merging. Just look at the combination of touch screen and an operating system or cell phone. Both have existed for a while, but the combination as a new device have lead to new technologies. On the hardware side, price for performance has dropped, efficiency has gone up, speed has gone up, size has decreased, capacity increased, etc…
