tireargueme : It seems bizarre that someone should have "multiple" prepaid cards as Visa prepaid cards are reloadable. You would find it difficult to use multiple cards for a single purchase on any website. Much easier to go to the mall and use them there.

gerceWedy : At a guess this Q is asking if a manual 'system' would be 'more secure' than a computerised one .

The answer is, of course, 'it depends', however, generally, no ..

The weakest link in any system is NOT some external 'super hacker' but the STAFF WHO USE IT .. these are the people who miss-use the system, eg enter incorrect data either by accident or in an attempt to 'bend' or defraud the system or 'leak' data to friends by 'gossiping' .. or sell data to those who are willing to pay ..

A 'manual' system depends 100% of the honesty of the staff using it .. and, because it's totally manual, 'the system' can't 'authenticate' the user (anyone with the key to the records room / cabinet has access .. as does anyone who finds it left unlocked ..)

Further, it's virtually impossible to 'compartmentalise' the data .. i.e. the manual user needs access to all the data in order to use the system ... so Purchasing (those who place orders) have access to the same data as Invoicing (those who pay the bills) and Accounts (those who track the money) = with the result that it's quite possible for one person to raise fake purchase orders, pay themselves and 'doctor' the Accounts to avoid discovery !

A computer system can not only authenticate the user (by insisting on the use of 'RFID cards' etc that are obviously 'fixed to the user' (because they also need them to open doors) so it's not possible to 'leave the system logged in' when moving away from the terminal) but can also control the changes that each user is permitted (as well as keeping records of 'who did what' so any miss-use can be discovered)

A computer system can 'compartmentalise' data so it's not all 'in one place' ... Purchasing can raise orders but have no access to the Invoicing - conversely Invoicing can make payments but have no access to Purchasing .. whilst Accounts can 'look at' everything but change nothing ..

Further a computer system can implement 'checks' .. for example, if a 'key card' is used to access the system after the 'owner' has left for the day (or not arrived, or on holiday, or off sick etc) .. or it could prevent an invoice being paid until the purchased goods have been delivered and 'checked in' using eg a bar-code scanner in Goods in .. and things like detecting 'duplicate orders' (or duplicate invoices / payments) would be 'built in' to the basic code ..

Finally, a computerised system using RFID tags can virtually eliminate 'shrinkage' (the fact that a percentage of all goods in the supply chain 'go missing' between the factory production line and the paying customer) by 'tracking' the goods all the way to the tills (and out of the doors ... whilst sounding an alarm when a RFID tag is 'seen' at any of the exit doors but not recorded as having been paid for at the tills :-) )

fivefingerslo : I need help with the following Matlab question using loops.

Function Name: cardCounter
% Inputs (1): - (char) A 1xN string representing cards dealt
% Outputs (1): - (char) A string stating whether the table is hot/cold
% Function Description:
% You're a young and inspired card shark. Your game of choice? Black
% Jack. You dream of making it big in Las Vegas and of taking down the
% big casino hustlers with the art of "card counting." There is only one
% problem, you just started today. However, with the help of MATLAB, you
% can practice your counting skills without the risk of being thrown out
% of a cheap casino by a gorilla named "Rondo."
% The concept of card counting is based on the concentration of high cards
% versus low cards left in the deck. You want to beat the house dealer.
% High cards (10,J,Q,K,A) help the player (you), because they increase
% your chance of gaining a natural 21. Low cards (2-6) help the dealer,
% because he has to hit (draw another card), which increases his score and
% chances of getting the highest value. The "Hi-Lo" system is the basic
% card counting system. Low cards (2-6) are given the value +1, because
% this increases the concentration of high cards in the deck. High cards
% (10-A) are given the value (-1), because they decrese the high card
% concentration. Cards (7,8,9) are given a value of 0, as these middle
% cards aid/hurt the dealer and player equally. The card counter keeps a
% running tally of the cards dealt and their respective values. If the
% end tally is positive, the table is "hot" (this is good). If the tally
% is zero or negative, the table is "cold" (this is bad).
% Write a function called cardCounter, that takes in a string representing
% cards that are dealt. The function should count the cards by adding +1
% for every low card, a -1 for every high card, and a 0 for every middle
% card. The output will be a statement stating whether the table is hot
% (end tally>0) or cold (end tally<=0). Included in that statement will be
% the greatest or lowest value of the running tally, and that value's
% respective card. If the table is hot, the output statement will include
% the highest value and its respective card. If the table is cold, the
% output statement will include the lowest value and its respective card.
% In the instance where there are multiple "highest/lowest tallies," the
% location of the first one should be used in the output.
% Output statement if hot:
% 'The table is hot on a "<card>", with a count of
% <tally value>.'
% Output statement if cold:
% 'The table is cold on a "<card>", with a count of
% <tally value>.'
% Notes:
% -The "ten" cards will be protrayed as a capital 'T'.
% -Assume there are no jokers.
% Here's an illustrated example:
% Cards Dealt: 2 K 7 5 T Q 8 6 (test case inputs won't have spaces)
% Count: +1 -1 0 +1 -1 -1 0 +1
% Running Count: 1 0 0 1 0 -1 0 0
% The end tally is 0, so the table is cold. The output would be a string
% that reads: 'The table is cold on a "Q", with a count of -1.'
% Hints:
% - sprintf will be useful
% Test Cases:
% deal1 = '9853A3QJ';
% table1 = cardCounter(deal);
% table1 = 'The table is cold on a "9", with a count of 0.';
% deal2 = '5KK937T6254';
% table2 = cardCounter(deal2);
% table2= 'The table is hot on a "4", with a count of 3.';
% deal3 = '723Q5JKQ44A92';
% table3 = cardCounter(deal3);
% table3 = 'The table is hot on a "3", with a count of 2.'

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

roinemanath : Here are my picks: MacBook Pro(11")/ MacBook Air(11")/ Asus/ Acer

What I need:

1) office word, PowerPoint, excel, etc (the norm for school assignments)

2) lightweight

3) durable (battery, long-lasting)

4) good amount of memory

5) capable of downloading programs from websites

6) ability to play online games with flash/shockwave

My budget: USD $400-900
*** I don't want to have to pay over $900 if I don't have to, I'd actually rather not.

opponoNaise : 11' is pretty small, unless you really enjoy small screens and keyboards. Out of the Macs, maybe the Macbook Air just because it's lighter. But that might not be in your budget range. I had an asus (gaming laptop, super heavy) and it was fine, I've never had an acer though.
