History of the Computer from 1936 to Present Day

The image above is of the UNIVAC computer made in 1951.

The image above is of the IBM 701 EDPM computer made in 1953.

The image above is of the IBM PC made in 1981.

The image above is of the Apple Lisa computer made in 1983.

The image above is of the Apple Macintosh Computer made in 1984.

The earliest computers had dimensions of about 8 by 3 by 80 feet and took up about 680 square feet. ARPAnet was so significant because it formed the idea that computers could be used for communication.  The world wide web was developed in 1989 and introduced on February 26, 1991.  Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak are known for their development of the Apple computer.  Steve Jobs is still with Apple today, but Steve Wozniak ended his full-time employment with Apple on February 6, 1987.  An “easter egg” is an intentional hidden message or feature within any form of media.  I think that in the next ten years computers will become far more advanced.  I think that computers will eventually utilize holographic technology for screens and keyboards.  I think that virtual reality will become more common in computers.
