the computer was first developed, people dreamed of faster, cheaper, and
mainly smaller ones. While new technologies emerged, such as the
laser, this dream was made possible. It was not until 1971,
though, that this dream was finally accomplished by a company called Intel.
The microprocessor was developed by Intel in 1971 for use in a calculator. It was called the Intel 4004. This processor contained 2,300 transistors on a four- bit microprocessor that could perform only 60,000 operations per second. Two years later the Intel 8008 was developed. It was an eight-bit processor which ran on computer terminals and had 3,300 transistors. The microprocessor has changed drastically over the years, and it is still being used.
For centuries man has tried to solve the mysteries of illnesses, diseases, and other such medical problems. Man searched for a solution, or a way to see these problems at the first sign. This solution would have to be safe, painless, and quick. Godfrey N. Nounsfield was the man that found that solution.
the PC was developed, the hard drive was the only source of memory, and
current records could only hold a few songs. There had to be a solution.
The demands were from many music enthusiasts and large software companies.
They wanted a cheap way to store large files.
The compact disc was developed by the Sony and Phillips Corporations in the early 1980s. After being released on the market, the CD became popular. It was used to replace vinyl records which were used for musical recordings. The CD could be played on an optical storage system called the CD-ROM (Compact Disc Read-Only Memory). The technology of the CD-ROM drive came from that used in current technologies such as the floppy disk drives. CDs can hold many things such as music, pictures, word documents, and other files. CDs were also created due to their small size and thickness. CDs have come a long way.
