Are Computers for you

Are computers for you? That’s a good question to start with what is a computer? It’s an electronic device for storing and processing data, typically in binary form. Binary code shows a text or computer instructions. Binary codes can only be two possible values zero and one. “Gottfried Leibniz lad the modern foundation of the movement from decimal to binary as fa back as 1666, while John Atanasoff, a physics professor at Iowa State college, had built a prototype binary computer by 1939”. (Kerry Redshaw 1996).

Computers have different types of bytes, just to name a few like kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte and terabyte. What are the difference between them? 8 bits = 1 byte, 1000 bytes= 1 kilobyte, 1000 kilobytes= 1 gigabyte. “These terms are usually used in the world of computing to describe disk space, or data storage space, and system memory. (What’s a byte 2016). There are many types of computers out since the first  computer is believed to be the Z2  computer built-in Germany by Konrad Zuse. (Computer History Museum 2016) Now to date we  have desktops, laptops, Ipads, and Apple watches. Myself I like Ipads and laptops.

Computers are wonderful for systems if you know how to operate them and know the system and what its capable of. Computers are apart of our every day use for working people and people that’s looking for work. Computers have changed lives because of efficiency and productivity of work done. You can use computers to store memos, online shopping, look for jobs, work from home, and do school work. Now a days computers are in the school as well like desktops, laptops, and Ipads. “Computers in higher learning institutions will help the professors and researches to their work fast and efficient”. (Pixuffle.net 2013)

So do you think computers are for you?  I think it benefits most people to have a computer especially if you have kids are your job could be the reason for computer use in your life. It’s also a way to keep in touch with friends and family by using social media like Facebook, Skype, snapchat, and email. These sights are just as good as using the telephone facebook you can video chat as well.
