    The computer History of the computer

    مُساهمة من طرف GODOF في الأحد 7 مارس - 19:09

    Who invented the computer?" is not a question with a simple answer. The real answer is that many inventors contributed to the history of computers and that a computer is a complex piece of machinery made up of many parts, each of which can be considered a separate invention.

    This series covers many of the major milestones in computer history (but not all of them) with a concentration on the history of personal home computers.
