Every little bit of technology is controlled by a chip, a computer chip. A computer is a programmable machine designed to sequentially and automatically carry out a sequence of arithmetic or logical operations. The computer was used mainly for machines. Today they are used for almost anything, from your car lights to street lights, calculators and phones; they all have computer chips that came from computers. The first digital computer was made in the 1940’s. You never really think about it, but those game systems you own have computer chips in them. But no, all you think about is getting to the next level. Truly all I am saying is… computers have changed the world!
The new, but old computers were made for machines like carpet weaving and rope weaving. But before anybody really knew about computers, (because they where new), the Space Exploration Group took up computers like a sponge takes up water. Then came the military, who started using computers for messages and supplies. Old computers were very big and they weren’t very easy to move. Another problem was they used up millions of times more energy then we use today for just one laptop. Do you know how much your electric bill would be?!
WHAT COMPUTERS CAUSED
Computers have caused many things in the beginning of its time and today. Let’s start back when the first computer was first made. When the first computer was made, all at once people wanted one. People wanted ways to keep their data so they could have it the next time they turned the machine on. Scientists spent a lot of time inventing the first memory chip. People then wanted a way to save their music and listen to it instead of putting it on tape. Tapes didn’t last long and could break easily. Next came the floppy disc which became compact disk and then flash drives which are known as “solid state memory”. Today we have laptops and are now coming out with flat screen monitors, wireless keyboards and mouses. We can now do things with music to change the pitch or sound and we can write on the computers (type). Computers have taken over a lot and here are just a few examples:
· Pay Phones
· Floppy Discs
· People's Jobs (cross walk guards, cashiers, accountants)
In the picture above, we have the oldest version of a computer. It was very big and very hard to move. This certain type of computer took up a lot of energy. It took over 1,002,502 modern day desktops to equal that energy. 
The computers today are small, portable, and easier to use. This type of computer is one of the most widely utilized because of how much energy it uses.
WHERE DO WE GO NEXT?
Computers have come a long ways away from a huge room sized computer to laptops. The reason we try to make computers better, is because they make our lives easier. Children to adults, they all get help from at least one computer in their lives. Computers have changed the world in many ways and this report is just one of them.
