HISTORY OF COMPUTERS

The abacus is the most ancient calculating device known. It has endured over time and is still in use in some countries. An abacus consists of a wooden frame, rods, and beads. Each rod represents a different place value—ones, tens, hundreds and so on.Addition and subtraction can easily be performed by moving beads along the wires of the abacus. In the early 17th century, John Napier, a Scottish mathematician, invented a calculating tool. It used marked strips of wood or bone, side by side, to multiply and divide.

HARDWARE & SOFTWARE

Computer hardware is the collection of all the parts you can physically touch. Computer software, on the other hand, is not something you can touch. Software is a set of instructions for a computer to perform specific operations. You need both hardware and software for a computer system to work.

Some hardware components are easy to recognize, such as the computer case, keyboard, and monitor. There are many different types of hardware components.
