Random Access Memory is the short-term storage space in your computer. It is where information is stored and quickly recalled while you are using your computer. For example, if you are researching information online for a paper you are writing, the RAM is what allows you to quickly switch back and forth between your Internet browser and your word processing program. Once you turn your computer off, the information on the RAM is erased, giving you a clean slate for the next time you start your computer

    first computer

    The word "computer" was first recorded as being used in 1613 and originally was used to describe a human who performed calculations or computations. The definition of a computer remained the same until the end of the 19th century when people began to realize machines never get tired and can perform calculations much faster and more accurately than any team of human computers ever could.
