Transcript: Xerox's contribution to computing It was the first computer to use the desktop metaphor and mouse-driven graphical user interface (GUI) Release date -1973; 37 years ago Early software for the Alto was written in the programming language BCPL, and later in Mesa, which was not widely used outside PARC but influenced several later languages, such as Modula The Xerox Alto was an early personal computer developed at Xerox PARC in 1973 The Alto was first conceptualized in 1972 in a memo written by Butler Lampson, inspired by the On-Line System (NLS) Xerox has been called the company that “fumbled the future.” Their Palo Alto Research Center (always known as Xerox PARC) was the place where the graphical user interface, the mouse, Ethernet, the laser printer, the first portable computer and many other significant developments took place. Xerox Star The name "Star" technically refers only to the software sold with the system for the office automation market. The 8010 workstations were also sold with LISP- and Smalltalk-based software, for the smaller research and software development market. The Star workstation, officially known as the Xerox 8010 Information System, was introduced by Xerox Corporation in 1981. It was the first commercial system to incorporate various technologies that today have become commonplace in personal computers, including a bitmapped display, a window-based graphical user interface, icons, folders, mouse, Ethernet networking, file servers, print servers and e-mail.

The, decide and create a series of questions that are to be asked during the game. 3. By hyper linking certain answers to different slides, the game jumps from slide to slide while playing the game. 4. This kind of setup is normally seen as a simple quiz show game. Example of a Wheel of Fortune Template Games can be made in order to make a fun and easy way to learn. Popular game templates include: Family Feud Millionaire Jeopardy and other quiz shows. Quick video on template "Millionaire" PowerPoint Games Some games are easier to make compared to others If users are unsure whether or not downloading certain templates is safe, you can actually make your own game by just simply using PowerPoint. add logo here References Example of a Family Feud Template PowerPoint Games are a great way to introduce new concepts and ideas You can create a fun, competitive atmosphere with the use of different templates You can change and rearrange information to correlate with the topic or idea being discussed. Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.


Transcript: Independence Maintaining an independent, objective and unbiased attitude of mind Independence in mind: Maintain a state of mind that allows the auditor to act with objectivity and integrity Independence in appearance: Avoid situations which might suggest to observers that the auditor is not unbiased and objective in his/her attitude Threats Self-interest threat: Arises when the auditor has a financial, personal, business or other self-interest in the client. Self-review threat: Difficulty in maintaining objectivity when a judgement formed in a previous audit or non-audit assignment needs to be challenged. Management threat: Partners and employees of the audit firm are prohibited from taking decisions on behalf of the management of the audited entity. Intimidation threat: Possibility that auditors may be intimidated by a threat by a director or senior manager of the client or some other party. Non-audit services: Non-audit services may be any services other than audit provided by an auditor to an audit client. The provision of non-audit services to audit clients as the key threat to auditors’ independent •Risk management advice •Mergers and acquisition •Taxation, including tax compliance and tax planning advice •Public offering •Portfolio monitoring •System and information technology •Forensic and litigation support •Recruitment and human resources •Transaction support and follow up •Corporate governance •Book keeping services Worldcom The company grew rapidly during the 1990s Multiple M&A pushed up stock price and company’s value Proposed Sprint merger During the year 2000, the business of the telecommunications industry began decreasing 1999-2002, the company used fraudulent accounting methods to disguise its decreasing earnings to maintain the stock price. The fraud was accomplished primarily in two ways: Booking ‘line costs’ as capital on the balance sheet instead of expenses. Inflating revenues with bogus accounting entries from "corporate unallocated revenue accounts". During 2002, a small team of internal auditors at WorldCom worked together, often at night and secretly, to investigate and reveal $3.8 billion worth of fraud. Soon thereafter, the company’s audit committee and board of directors were notified of the fraud and acted swiftly. It was estimated that the company's total assets had been inflated by about $11 billion. Threats: Auditor's independence threats vs Accountant's ethical issues. Enron Scandal An American energy company Lead to the bankruptcy of Enron corporation and dissolution of Arthur Andersen The biggest audit failure Shareholders lost nearly $11 billion Enron’s stock price achieved a high of US$90 per share during mid-2000, decreased to less than $1 by the end of November 2001 Self-review threat Non-audit service----------Consulting service Andersen set up Enron’s internal accounting procedures Advantages Telling companies how to set up internal procedures Disadvantages Vitiation of audit independence Cannot review the audit procedure critically Impartial view of relevant aspects of financial statements Familiarity Threat Andersen has been Enron’s audit for about 20 years Andersen even maintained a permanent office space Andersen’s employees attended and joined many events organized under Enron’s management Familiar with Enron’s accounting polices Easily overlook on the Enron’s compliance with relevant policies and requirement Self-interest threat $25 million for auditing services and $27 million for non-auditing services, including $3.5 million for tax work Enron ranked as Andersen’s second-largest client Wanted to foster long-term relationship Although Andersen knew there were serious problems with Enron's financial statements, they signed it off anyway. Management threat Employees left Andersen to work for Enron Integrated audit --- combined external and internal auditing Andersen took over Enron’s internal auditing in 1994 Incentives to keep bosses of Andersen and Enron happy Xerox From 1997 to 2000, Xerox Corp. was engaged in a fraudulent scheme that misled investors about Xerox’s earnings. Accelerating the recognition of equipment revenues of approximately $3 billion and increasing pre-tax earnings by $1.4 billion in Xerox’s 1997-2000 financial results. The SEC found that KPMG permitted Xerox to manipulate its accounting practices to close a $3 billion “gap” between actual operating results and results reported to the investing public. Self-interest threat During the year between 1997 and 2000, 26m dollars audit fees were paid by Xerox, however, non-audit fees were up to 56m dollars. Self-review threat Since KPMG provided non-audit services to Xerox, it could influence audit independence when doing self-review. Familiarity threat In 2002, KPMG as auditors of Xerox had been 40 years. Safeguard: 1.Ceiling on fees from a client Price competition decreases the quality of audit work. 2.Restriction on other services In order to achieve economic benefits, audit will rely on


Transcript: Xerox Corporation is a Fortune 500 global document management company (founded in 1906) that manufactures and sells a range of color and black-and-white printers, multifunction systems, photo copiers, digital production printing presses, and related consulting services and supplies. Headquartered in Norwalk, CT, and with 136,000 employees in 160 countries, we’re never far from your business. As a $22 billion company, we are the world’s leading enterprise for business process and document management. TIMELINE The M.H. Kuhn Company, founded in 1903, becomes the Haloid Company on April 18, 1906 in Rochester, New York, to pursue the business of manufacturing and selling photographic paper. Inventor Chester Carlson, pursuing the concept of electrophotography in his spare time, makes the first xerographic image in his Astoria, Queens, New York City lab — a handwritten notation of "10-22-38 ASTORIA." Xerography is formally announced on October 22 at the Optical Society of America Annual Meeting in Detroit, Michigan — the same year the word "Xerox" is trademarked for future use. The Haloid Company, originally formed in 1906 to manufacture photographic paper and equipment, changes its name to Haloid Xerox Inc. on April 16 to reflect the company's focus on commercial xerography. The fast, economical Xerox 914 — the first automatic, plain-paper commercial copier — is announced to the public on September 19 in a televised demonstration and subsequently revolutionizes the industry. Reflecting the company's focus on xerographic products and services, Haloid Xerox Inc. changes its name to Xerox Corporation on April 18. They begin recovering metals from used photoreceptor drums for use in new products, improving the reuse of natural resources and lowering the amount of hazardous heavy metals bought, handled and processed. They introduce two-sided copying, which reduces paper costs, saves time previously spent reinserting pages, saves paper storage space and lessens the environmental impacts of making and using paper. The Palo Alto Research Center — known as Xerox PARC — opens in Palo Alto, California, with a world-class team of experts in information and physical sciences, drawn together to create "The Office of the Future." An internal memo coins the term "Ethernet" to describe a proposed system of interacting workstations, files and printers, linked via coaxial cable within a local area network, which components can join or leave without disturbing data traffic. Xerox PARC prototypes Alto — the world's first personal computer — with the first "what-you-see-is-what-you-get" (WYSIWYG) editor, first commercial use of a mouse, graphical user interface (GUI) and bit-mapped display. Xerox PARC terms its cut-and-paste bitmap editor as "WYSIWYG"; demos Bravo, the word-processing program that leads to Microsoft Word; and introduces device-dependent imaging, which enables page description languages like Postscript. In one of the most effective and awarded ad campaigns in history, fictional monk "Brother Dominic" achieves the monumental task of duplicating sacred manuscripts with the help of Xerox copier systems. Xerox PARC debuts the first graphical user interface (GUI), which uses icons, pop-up menus and overlapping windows with simple point-and-click control — an innovation that will dramatically influence PC interface design. We introduce the energy-saving power down mode in our copiers, an initiative that precedes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR® program by ten years. Our breakthrough 10 Series copiers, using technology developed at Xerox PARC, become the industry's first to use built-in microcomputers with a low-bandwidth Ethernet as the communications interface. Xerox PARC envisions seamless mobile-device "ubiquitous computing" by inventing and building the palm-sized PARCTab, notebook-sized PARCPad, lightweight document reader and precursor to wireless infrastructure. The DocuTech Production Publisher — first in the DocuTech Series — launches with the "Putting it Together" ad campaign featuring the product's advanced image capture, document manipulation and image quality. Xerox PARC scientists co-found and implement the Mbone multicast backbone to deliver real-time Internet multimedia; co-found the Ipv6 Internet protocols; and help develop the HTTP-NG protocol based on Inter-language Unification (ILU). Performing at Xerox PARC, the band Severe Tire Damage becomes the first musical group to broadcast live video and audio on the Internet, using the experimental Mbone (multicast backbone) for IP Multicast. Anticipating the handheld device explosion of the following decade, Xerox PARC-developed technology that enables simple, single-stroke touch-screen input for palm-sized devices is patented. We launch the Phaser 850 color printer — our first to utilize non-toxic, cost-saving solid ink technology — and raise the bar for office color printing with brilliant quality prints at a market-leading 14 pages per
