#1. INTRODUCTION

“It’s not that we use technology, we live technology (Reggie n.d.)”. Technology is the collection of device that makes it easier for us to manage and create information. Computer is a technology that can process, store data and receive. Computer is also a tool where people can connect through website. Moreover, there are a lot of different elements inside a computer and the elements serve different purposes. All the element need to work together in order for the computer to function.

#2. WHAT IS COMPUTER?

Computer is a programmable electronic device that can accept data, operate at high speed, and perform mathematical calculations. Besides, laptop, tablets and smart phones are different types of computers too. These electronic that processes data by our instructions. The digital computer stores data in separate units and performs calculations and logical operation at very high speed. On the other hand, analog computers are slower and have no memory when compared to the digital computer. Today, digital and analog computer combined some advantages of the hybrid computer.

#3. THE EVOLUTION OF COMPUTER

The first generation of computer was big, clumsy and often unreliable. In 1946, two American named Presper Ecret and Willian Mauchly build the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer. It uses vacuum tube instead of mechanical switch of the MARK in 1951. Willian Mauchly and Presper Ecret build the UNIVAC, which can calculate at the rate 10,000 additions per seconds. In 1956 untill1963, the famous computer scientist created transistor spark production of a wave. Transistor is a small device that transfer electronic signals across a resister. In third generation (1964-1971) IBM series were introduced. It came in several sizes and models. There is also other computer introduce which known as CDC 7600 and B2500. Not just that, silicone chips were also manufacture in the year 1961 at the silicone valley. Then the integrated circuit technology came, which has reduced the cost and size of computers In fourth generation 1971, it took 55 years for the four generation to evolve. There are many types of computer model such as IBM, DELL, ACER, and Apple Macintosh. In 1971, Intel created the first microprocessor while in 1976 Steve Jobs built the first Apple computer. In the year of 1981, IBM introduced the first personal computer. In fifth generation, the computers of technology are advance and still being development to become more powerful. The invention of new hardware technology have grown speedily including many other modern computer such as processor, silicone chips, virtual reality, intelligent systems, robotics, and program. After the fifth generation, the technology of computer has become more modern. The latest invention in the era of computers is mainframe, super, mini, personal and mobile computers. In the new era of...
