Have you ever seen a computer in a store and said, "Whoa! What a chick!"
? I am sure you would have, if you were familiar with the new 16xCD-ROM
and extra wide SCSI-2 9.0 GB hard drive it features, or if you knew about
the dual 225 MHz Pentium pro MMX chips blazing up its performance. To
tell you all about computers, it takes a total computer nut like me. After
working with computers almost all my life, I can tell you that a computer
is an electrical device, without which a guy like me probably cannot
survive. If you have no idea of what I am beeping about, read on. Experts,
I report no error in reading further.
Computers are very productive tools in our everyday lives. To
maximize the utility of a computer, what you need to do is get going with
the program. To do that, the minimum system requirements are a C.P.U.
or the central processing unit, a keyboard, a monitor, a mouse, and if you
want, a printer and a CD - ROM drive. The C.P.U. is that part of a
computer that faithfully does what his master tells him to do, with the
help of input devices like a keyboard or a mouse. After all this so called
sophisticated, next generation equipment, you need some sort of software.
Software is a set of instructions to the C.P.U. from a source such as a
floppy disk, a hard drive or a CD - ROM drive, in zillions of 1's and 0's.
Each of these tiny little instructions makes up a bit. Then they assemble
to form a byte. Bytes make up a program, which you run to use the
computer's various applications.
Now that you know more about computers than Einstein did,
