British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Looking quickly at the wiki page of Manchester Small-Scale Experimental Machine, I think the difference is that the SSEM uses a computer program it has in its memory while the Z3 makes use of an external control program stored on a tape which tells it what to do. Maybe it should be "first working stored computer program"? KBM has been marketing the Z4 and its derivatives for several years now, No doubt the next generation of KBM equipment will incorporate Transitron-tech...

British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Speaking out of character... Herr Zuse and KBM have been manufacturing and marketing computer equipment for several years now, including exports as far away as Chile. Isn't the British news about a computer program and the German news about a electromechanical computing machine? Well, it's rather hard to run a computer without a program. Given the development of the Zuse line of computers since its initial introduction, I would say that hurdle h...

Peruvian News and Events, 1948

Loreto, vicinity of the Peruvian frontier, 19 June 1948 The many informants who supplied the Brazilian and Colombian authorities in the Tres Fronteras with ‘intelligence’ vied with each other regarding their speculative interpretations of what they saw, or heard, or imagined. Sifting out the truth from the chaff often reduced such authorities to tears or drove them to the local cantina. But this much was true – more of the swift motor launches had arrived to lend greater mobility to the Peruvian...

German News and Events, 1948

Militär-Wochenblatt, Friday, 25 June 1948 With the tempo of deliveries mounting, three more interceptor wings of the Luftwaffe have converted to the BFW Bf262 – Jagdgeschwader 51, Jagdgeschwader 52, and Jagdgeschwader 53.

Yugoslav News and Events, 1948

Belgrade, The White Palace, Friday, 25 June 1948 King Aleksandr had called the morning’s meeting with his military chiefs to discuss the implications of the recent German decision to permit the sale of additional armaments to Yugoslavia. Of the long list of requests submitted to the German foreign office only two, for the supply of Arado bomber aircraft and Junkers jet engines, had been approved, and insofar as the bombers were concerned, in far smaller numbers that what was sought. Major-Genera...
