The Wonderful History of Computing
Find out what you haven't been thinking of!
Input devices are devices which are used to insert information into the computer system which is followed by a procession.
Here are brief examples of input devices:
Here are some examples of Output devices:
Hardware devices are devices which are physically touched to insert information into a computer.
If a CPU is damaged your computer won't work although it's the smallest thing inside your computer.
The RAM is in control of the amount of files you have open.
If you open too many files your computer starts to do things slowly unless you've got a lot of RAM.
Binary code, as you may have realized from the beginning bi, is made up of two different numbers; 1 and 0
The CPU wouldn't understand the text so it is transformed into a code.
This is Binary code!
He was one of the world's greatest mathematicians and had a great understanding in computing.
His contribution had stopped the Germans sending messages through a secret code because he and a team had cracked the code using a machine he has invented and information from a lady.
He also used enigma to crack the code.
A network is when two or more computers share information because they are connected with a hub and switch or a router.
Wireless connection between two computers
Hub and switch
The wires for connection between two computers
A process of sharing information between two computers or more.
Other types of networks
- Easy to install
- Cheap and doesn't require much cables.
- If the main cable fails or gets damaged the whole network will fail.
- As more workstations are connected the performance of the network will become slower because of data collisions.
- high performing as no data collisions can occur
- Easy to set up
- extra hardware required (hubs or switches) which adds to cost
- Extra hardware required.
