    I played with that for awhile.

    Love the sound of those old printers and I miss tearing the ends off of the old tractor paper after you ripped it from the machine.

    I don't trust google anymore. I'm gonna start using bing instead.

    (note to self: tell brain to bing it instead of google it)

    I've read that Bing does a lot of the same shit as Google. Duck duck go is the way to go, even though I always forget to use it and just automatically go to Google

    Imagine the size and space those computers would have taken in order to process information like this back then. It's actually just a retro skin for google, made just for fun.

    ENIAC was the first electronic computer, it was housed at Penn State, PA.
    It weighed 27 tons, was 8 by 3 by 100 feet long, took up 1,800 square feet, and consumed 174 kW of power. Input was through an IBM card reader, a card punch was used for output.


    ENIAC was reproduced on a chip less less 1/4 inch square by Penn State in 1996.

    Vacuum tubes:
    Transistors: none
    Resistors: 170,000
    Capacitors: 10,000
    Footprint: 80x3 ft
    Clock speed: 100 kHz
    Power: 174 kW

    ENIAC-on-a Chip

    Vacuum tubes: none
    Transistors: 250,000
    Resistors: none
    Capacitors: none
    Footprint: 8x8 mm
    Clock speed: 20 MHz*
    Power: 0.5 W*

    The first electric programmable computer

    The Colossus was the first electric programmable computer and was developed by Tommy Flowers and first demonstrated in December 1943. The Colossus was created to help the British code breakers read encrypted German messages.

    Eniac was the first "analog" general purpose computer.

    Meaning Eniac could be used for multiple types of data task.

    Colossus was the first "digital" programmable computer, dedicated to code breaking.

    Meaning Colossus was only used to decrypt cyphers during the war.

    Both machines were developed independently during the same time period. In those days computers were highly classified and knowledge of their existence didn't come around until the 1970s

    OdonII is correct, I should have said that ENIAC was the first general purpose Turing-complete electronic computer.

    yep, knew that but it was awesome...big cumbersome, not so user friendly motherfucker, kind of like a motor control circuit hardwired with a shitload of relays and shit to control a process vs. PLC's, programmable logic controllers, which are wired with input output devices which can be w/e type of switch, sensor, w/e, and the plc provides power to output devices, which can be motor starters, pilot lights, anything really, you can program it to do anything based on the state of the input devices.
