I did a little research and found the first personal computer was called, "Simon" (not to be confused with the popular game). It was developed by Edmund Berkeley. He first wrote about the idea in his book, "Giant Brains, or Machines That Think," published in 1949. The construction of the machine was conducted mostly by, William A. Porter and Robert A. Jensen. The purpose of the machine was to create a mechanical brain that could create interest for others to make more creations of its kind. The machine could perform some functions like a calculator addition and subtraction. Source: http://www.blinkenlights.com/pc.shtml
The ENIAC is the very first general purpose computer.
•It was the first general-purpose electronic computer.
The Atanasof-Berry Computer was first electronic digital computer, but it was not general purpose, all it could do was solve simultaneous equations. ENIAC was the first general purpose programmable electronic digital computer.
ENIAC- Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) was the first electronic general-purpose computer.
Microsoft has never made a general-purpose computer. The first computer that Microsoft wrote and sold programs for was the Altair 8800.
the General Purpose Computer and The Dedicated Purpose Computer
no. but he did invent the first general purpose programmable computer invented.
Harvard Mark I
The first practical computer was used for military use.
purpose of using computer
ENIAC, in in 1946
No, a personal computer is an example of a general-purpose computer. The computer in a VCR is designed for the specific purpose of operating the VCR.
1943 ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), the first general-purpose electronic digital calculator begins to be constructed. This computer by most is considered to be the first electronic computer.
Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer, was the first general-purpose electronic computer.
The first computer viruses were first made as somewhat of a hobby. The main point would have been to have some fun.
ENIAC, short for Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer was the first general-purpose electronic computer. Hope this is helpfull
the German Z3 designed by Konrad Zuse
The first computer program is thought to have been created by Ada Lovelace in the 1840's for Charles Babbage's general purpose computer. The program was called Notes and it was an algorithm that was to be used by a computer.
The main purpose of an Apple computer is computing.
1942, both the special purpose electronic digital Atanasoff Berry Computer at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa and the general purpose electromechanical programmable digital Harvard Mark i computer at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts were finished and were first used.
The first computer ENIAC, was used to calculate trajectories and develop ballistic tables for Military Gunners to use. Computer was built at the University of Pennsylvania
