Computer- 1930s

Mark Computer (1944):

UNIVAC (1951)

IBM701 EDPM (1953)

Scelbi Mark-8 (mid 70s)

Altair (mid 70s)

 

The first computers were as large as one room. The ENIAC (1946) measured 8.5 feet by 80 feet and weighed almost 30 tons!

ARPRANET was the first internet. It’s important because it allowed for the sharing of information between computers that were in separate geographical locations. Our modern day internet, The World Wide Web, was not launched until 1991.

The first apple computers were created by Steve Jobs and Stephen Wozniak. While jobs is still CEO of Apple, Wozniak left the company in 1987. However, he still works their as a part-time employee. Today, Apple ships out many of it’s products with “easter eggs,” or hidden surprises, ranging from weird graphics to music to games,  within Apple software. Some easter eggs that can be found in photoshop include a belching cat and weird secret messages.  In illustrator, some of the easter eggs include fun facts and a birthday cake brush.

Computers are very powerful machines. In the next 10 years, I believe most things will be digitalized including school textbooks, an idea some school boards are already toying with. I also believe even more information will be available to the masses allowing for oppressed people to realize their plight. Computers can change the world :)!
