What Was The First Computer ENIAC Computer Repair Westlake Village

AB Computer Repair Westlake Village, for prompt certified onsite service call 805-498-0607.


It was 67 years ago that the first successful digital electronic computer, the ENIAC, was built at the University Of Pennsylvania. The ENIAC (below) weighed 30 tons, occupied 1,800 square feet of floor space, and got smarts from 17,000 vacuum tubes, which six full-time technicians ran around replacing as they randomly blew out like Fourth of July fireworks. Although the $500,000 ENIAC could carry out operations at electronic speed, it could not store programming instructions in its internal memory; the computer had to be laboriously rewired for each new problem it tackled.

It was  37 years ago that the first personal computer, the Altair, made its debut as a $400 kit. The Altair was hard to assemble, didn’t work all that well, and came with no external memory, no printer, and no keyboard; limited programming and data entry could be done by flipping toggle switches on the front. And yet the Altair was a big hit with hobbyists – build-your-own-crystal-radio crowd – who sensed that they were on the front line of a technological revolution.

Not everyone, however, foresaw the full effect of this revolution: it was 32 years ago that the CEO of Digital Equipment Corporation declared, “The personal computer will fall flat on its face in business.” Today 145 million PC’s have been sold in the country one, more than half of them to business. Sure, PCs have to get a little smarter (if you ask Microsoft Word for Windows to check the grammar of the sentence “I graduated from the University Of Notre Dame,” it responds, “Sexist expression. Avoid using Dame except except as a British title”; as New Yorker quipped, they call them PCs for nothing). But theres no doubt that PCs will become even more a part of the fabric of everyday life. To mark the thirty second anniversary of the personal computer, senior editor Fred Guterl talked to researchers at R&D centers across the country to get a sense of how this ambiguous machine is evolving.
