We cannot imagine a world without computers in 2014! But hard to believe is that the the origin of
computers go as far as to 6oBC in the Aegean Sea, an analog computer has been found there, and scientists
are now trying to solve the puzzle. On the invention of the computer, many inventors contributed; it is a very
complex machine. The first programmable computer was invented in 1936 by Conrad Zuse and it was called
the 21. In 1981 IBM came out with the first PC and Microsoft with the MS-DOS. Many of us remember those
days. In 1983, APPLE came on the scene with the APPLE LISA, the first one with a GUI, and in 1984 with the
APPLE MACINTOSH computer. In 1985, Microsoft and Apple begin their friendly war.
THE IMPORTANCE OF COMPUTERS
Computers have made the world a small world. The standard of living has improved with it and almost every
country uses upgraded technology. Computers are an electronic device which can be programmed and that
can store your data, and retrieve it. Technical developments have changed society and in all daily fields, from
government, hospitals, education, agricuIture…there is not one area functioning without it, and the world
would be paralyzed if it suddenly stopped.
HOW IT WORKS
This technology items work with several electronic items which work together to achieve a task. It displays
data in a form easy to understand, and it stores this data in very a very small place called memory. The
advantage of computers is its speed, so it can work more rapidly and efficient than humans do, with the
result excellent efficiency and productivity. It does numerical work, inserts, deletes; files can be stored,
printed, or edited many times.
WE COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT COMPUTERS IN 2014
One of the most important things of this technology is the internet. The easiness in which we can connect
with each other, share documents, research topics, shop on line, listen to music. All things that can be
achieved with a computer connected to the web could not be named. In a simple explanation the internet are
many files connected to each other, one file can lead you to another. The good thing about it is that these
files contains lots of information like graphics, music, programs, games…Maybe now a days these is taken
forgranted, but in 1994, you wouldn’t imagine it.
THE WORLD WIDE WEB
Now, let’s see the World Wide Web, and Internet Explorer and Mozilla, for example, others like Opera,
Netscape or LYNX, do the same as these: they are web browsers, which permit you to see all those files that
are interlinked. You can compare them to TV buttons. You can research for the inimaginable, anything you
can think of.
Can you loose the data that you have in your computer? Yes, you can, due to software failure, viruses,
power failure or maybe hacking. For that, exist certain programs or software that will let you protect. To do a
backup of your files with CD’s or another safe storing device. Be careful with your passwords, of the
programs you use and what you write in your emails.
Computers and technology is a topic of never ending, but this is a quick going through until next time.
New Invention Developed with Computer
Mouse pad, gaming chair, gaming desk, keyboard, joystick, racing wheel, they are all invented after the computer became popular.Comments (0)
