What is Hardware and Software and what are the differences.......

Hardware is something that is physically used on the computer; some examples of hardware are things like mouse’s, keyboards, monitors and many more. Software is different to hardware because you can not physically touch it and it is something that is usually on the computer rather that it being physically outside the computer.Some examples of software; are things like Scratch, Skype, Microsoft Office and much more, also different software's helps control different computer systems!

More about hardware/software....

In addition to; one of them can not work without the other one, for example if you are trying to go onto Microsoft Office (software) but there is no mouse (hardware) you can not go onto the software system, Microsoft office because you won't be able to move the mouse which will be needed to click onto Microsoft Office (software). Therefore, in that example it told us that the software couldn't do anything without the hardware (not even the simplest thing, like; just going onto the program).
