The history timeline was very interesting to review. I never really realized what it takes to make a computer run. After careful consideration I was able to think of the two hardware innovations and two software innovations that I believe to be the most important. The first hardware innovation that I believe to be one of the most important innovations is the processor. The reason that I believe this is because of the speed that is provides for the computer. The speed that the processor provides allows people to get the things accomplished on the computer much faster. The processor is like the brain of the computer it tells the rest of the computer what to do. The second hardware innovation that I believe to be one of the most important innovations is the memory. The reason I believe this is because the memory stores data internally in the computer. You can store as much information as you want in the memory, like for example, videos, pictures, school work, work from you job, etcetera. One type of software innovation that I believe one of the most important innovations is Microsoft Windows. The reason that I believe this software to be so important is because of all the programs it has to offer, such as Microsoft word to create important documents, Excel spreadsheet for businesses to be able to keep track of merchandise and sales, Power Point for presentations, etcetera. Another software innovation that I believe to be important is the drivers. I believe this to be important because drivers are programs that can, for example, connect your computer to a printer. Then once you are connected to a printer you may print anything from your computer as much as you want or need.
