The ENIAC was huge, it would fill up an entire room just to maintain its
The room had to be air conditioned just for it to work properly. The ENIAC had many switches so many it would put DJ’s to shame! Outputs and inputs over and over the ENIAC was very interesting invention for its time. What the ENIAC did it would calculate and solve on questions that needed to be done. The ENIAC had 1800 tubes each the size of a small light bulb! The size was about 8.5 by 3 and took up 680 ft! the transistor was used to transfer the data between the computer and its mainframe. The transistor of the ENIAC was much bigger than transistors now-a-days but It still does the same job. “The first practical point-contact transistor was built in 1948 by William Bradford Shockley, John Bardeen, and Walter House Brattain. Patents for the concept of a transistor date as far back as 1928 in Germany, though they seem to have never been built, or at least no one ever claimed to have built them.” Andrew Zimmerman Jones. The integrated circuit is a multi purpose tool used for many things, it was first made by Geoffrey W.A. Dummer. The integrated circuit used vacuum tubes to hold the wires in place. The Timex Sinclair was a computer styled old fashioned laptop, but it had no screen, it was used for a door stop
the first home computer was quite small and the screen was not in multi colour but in greens. The computer quite diminutive and uninformative
1.Turing Machine- What is it? Explain the concept.
2.Apple Computer – What was their first product? Who built it? How successful was it? Where did it start?
3.Who were the next followers.
4.What was Bill Gates’ first product. What made him money. How did he begin to make money. How did his company influence the computer business.
5.What are all of the Windows operating systems ever created. Write out a simple timeline and some of the features and advances of each.
1.Turing machines are basic abstract symbol-manipulating devices, A Turing machine that is able to simulate any other Turing machine
2 An apple computer is much different than a microsoft, Apples first product was a hand made personal computer, made out of wood. it was made by steve Wozniak, it was very successful and was sold for 666.66$
3 The next followers of the Apple was the mac which was a great successor to it
4. The first thing bill gates made was the programming language binary, the product which made him money was MS basic, he mass provided his products and this product changed the way computers are made today.

These 5 important things are very important to me me becuase they all changed the way we live, th cellhone we can communicate even when not at home, the atari changed the gaming experience, the television is just that great. The Nes started the nintendo franchise and pushed the gaming world to the next level. last but not least the best of them all the computer, if we never had them, the world would cease to exist.
