Technology, Old Vs. New

Zach Howard September 2016

Old Technology

The ENIAC was the first computer ever made. It was almost the size of a room! But people were so excited because they had a way to contact with friends and family through email. The Altair 8800 was the first personal computer ever made. It was a huge step from the ENIAC, but still wasn't easy to travel with. Thats where the Osbourne 1 comes in. The Osbourne 1 was the first laptop. It was much more portable that the first two, but the biggest invention came a couple years later by a man that goes by the name Steve Jobs. The Apple IIE was released in 1983. It was the biggest thing in technology until the Internet became mainstream. You still had to insert a floppy disc to turn it on, but it was still a huge thing at that time.

New Technology

The new technology has shaped the world into what it is today. Everyone is constantly on their technology, whether it is for homework, work, or just for fun. With the new iPhones and iPads coming out every year, everyone is rushing and camping out at places you can get one, it is almost certain that everyone has some piece of technology.
