Abstract

The rate at which technology is progressing is astounding. It is hard to believe that the first personal computer was developed only 40 years ago. Today we use computers for information, social networking, work, business, recreation, education and shopping. We 'Google' information and 'Facebook' our status. The very first computers were the size of entire rooms and took hours to process information. Now we carry smartphones in our pockets that process information virtually instantaneously and which have infinitely more power and which have infinitely more power and capabilities than the computing founders would have dreamed possible.
