From the Computer Hope website, it is stated that the word "computer" in 1613 was originally used to describe a human who carried out calculations or computations. It remained unchanged until the end of the 19th century when people began to realize machines never get tired and can perform calculations much faster and more accurately than any team of human computers ever could (www.computerhope.com). As we know, the computer is very convenient yet gives big advantage to the people. We are introduced by our parents and even our teachers that computer is applicable in searching information worldwide and some of the research done by Dr. Brent Conrad (2014) is a Clinical Psychologist for TechAddiction, 10% of children under eight years old use educational software and 6% use a computer for homework. In 1993 the government of Canada adopted a new initiative, computers for schools (CFS).
There was new entry into the computer industry. This opened up new market segments like minicomputers and portables. Dell also started eyeing retail markets. The main reason for the shape the industry was taking was due to the factors of technical advancement and the pricing breakthroughs. The portable computers were possible because of technical advancements like LCD screens, improved battery technology and less energy consuming HDDs.
Steven Russell was a young computer programmer when he first came up with the idea of a computer game. It took Russell and his men hundreds of hours to create this computer game. However, this game was not played on a computer that you would see today. This game could only be played on a PDP-1, a much bigger and slower version of computers
I believe that within less than 10 years, robots will have acquired a vast majority of the jobs worked today, and will expand to other frontiers. Robots will be utilized in many applications. They not only replace the actions of the humans, but also increase the speed and development of the products humans are producing. Not only are they cheaper than paying humans an hourly wage, but they also don’t have any other costs besides power, and occasional maintenance. When comparing the speed of the two, robots are also faster, and more reliable.
Sony have been able to introduce innovative products that customer didn’t really think they need, but that have become a huge success when adopted by the consumers. This has further contributed to Sony’s great customer loyalty. Since Sony operates in many different product categories and reach out to a lot of different customer segments, this contributes to them having a lot of competitors as well. Although remaining a force to be reckoned with within the electronics sector, they have lost their leadership position to some of their competitors. Companies like Apple, who are ranked 1st as the most valuable brand in the world, could become a direct competitor if they expand their product line.
Producing well-organized and actual networks to exchange information, IT has been the substance for global incorporation. Current developments in our aptitude to connect and administer information in digital form a series of growths occasionally defined as an IT uprising are reforming the economies and social lives of numerous nations around the world. Merchandises built upon or improved by information technology are expended in practically every facet of life in modern industrial societies. The extent of IT and its applications has been extremely prompt. Years ago, the use of desktop personal computers was still rationed to an impartially small number of technologically innovative individuals.
Another big development was the introduction of integrated ciricuits, developed by Jack Kilby at Texas instruments and Robert noyce at Fairchild semiconductor. Kilby integrated circuit. It was during the early 70’s with the introduction of the first computer memory chips and microprocessor chips, a major breakthrough cameout in technology. This way microcomputers were developed few years later. Memory chip All areas of electronics were affected, by the progression of transistors and integrated circuits.
From computers to smartphones, these useful electronic devices allow us to fulfill any type of task or activity. This is one of the most important tools for entrepreneurs and this has given them a way to do their jobs. Thanks to this invention it can be said that they have been able to minimize the use of paper, so it is a great help for ecology. Computers have been the best invention that has ever been created, but as all things they have their advantages and disadvantages; being a super-efficient product makes people become dependent on them. This addiction to technology can produce various disorders in humans (obesity , insomnia , blindness, etc.)
Jeremy Hernandez Professor S. L. Kelly English 101 06 June 2013 Future Classrooms vs Traditional Classrooms Technology has been in our classrooms since the 80’s when they invented the computer and introduced it into the school system. Now in addition to the computers, our classrooms are being shaped by the introduction of tablets, laptops, and cell phones. Modern technology is used every day and is growing rapidly. Some people think that because of the rate that technology is growing, it is possible that the traditional classroom may be becoming obsolete. However, others feel that because the traditional classrooms offer too many benefits, they will not completely become irrelevant.
Today, we can’t imagine ourselves without technological advances such as cars, microwaves, cell phones, computers, and televisions. However, technology won’t stop here, but develop further. As technology develops, there are not only advantages, but disadvantages from them. A few advantages of upgraded technology are that one can save time and money and life will be made easier as a result of not having to do all the hard labor. In contrast, the disadvantages of upgraded technology are that people will loose their jobs to machines that will do the work for them.
