The History of Computers 1938 to 2010

Lets sit back and think about what life was like before computers were everywhere. You actually had to send letters via the postal service, go to stores to buy things, and actually visit Uncle Larry at his house instead of at the prison where he is serving time for a hard drive full of illegal images. Any way, even though a mostly computerless world wasn’t that long ago it really is hard to explain to some of the younger generation what a pain it really was. So in honor of the great technology we use everyday I present to you ‘Computers – A Chronological Timeline’. Enjoy!

    This is an American version of the history of computers, where the contributions of other nations are carefully avoided. No mention of the pre-war ideas of Alan Turing and the wartime realisations of his ideas at Bletchley Park, in the use of bombes for cryptography.
