Do we actually know the reasons of the computer's invention.I have studied the exact idea came up from Charles Babbage and he also made a huge computer for the firs time in late 18th century or so,I don't remember the year correctly. The people before us without computers would have thought with this invention,all the things in the world can be made so fast and reliable,at the instant of a blink of a eye.Well has the internet being the sole ,what would have been the case if internet wasn't here?Is computer really a necessary,if it wasn't invented will the life be the same as now?I usually think of this everyday,I suppose. Share your thoughts.

Hello my friend I don't even want to think of it , I can't remember how long it took me to actually get a computer in the home, but when I did life as I knew it was never the same, I had no clue what I was doing in the beginning lol no one helped me, it was really funny, but eventually I got the hang of it, so glad I was able to teach myself, I guess without the internet (HMMMM) it would be really boring, internet came at a time when it meant to be here, lets not question greatness. lol Good question, thank you

I am not all surprised by your thought,surely its an unimaginable thing of living without a computer and specially without an internet connection.The world would seem so far away if this wouldn't be the scenario.

The technology surely has started has started to bind all of us together and yet this has made everyone understand the need for it,which surely involves computer and the global internet service.

I still can't decide whether the invention of the computer was a good or bad thing? I know it's reasonable for businesses and financiers and everyone to believe that it's the greatest invention, but in some ways, it takes away from us having to socialize with each other as its own form of entertainment. What do you think?

The computers and the internet are the medias for all sorts of business and marketing,the cooperation that one gets from any source is apt,but being in touch with the help of this creation has surely been a landmark of achievement for humankind.

Why was computer created??????... This is one of the prophecies written in the Holy Bible, that the knowledge will increase before the 2nd coming of the Lord JESUS CHRIST. We are at the end times and we do not know when HE will be coming may be today, tomorrow, within ten to hundred to thousand years, we do not know. The great Holy Bible clearly speak of it and gives warning to all of us to be prepared for HIS coming. http://www.getsavedtoday.com If internet was not here, there is no mylot or any online businesses here and no excitement like scams online, social networking online, etc. dig me?

I believe internet and the computer has been providing all that we people would think of getting into any social networking.But I don't actually know or have any idea of what's gonna be the time for the 2nd coming,but the beliefs that i do have regarding some of the statements in bible are very true.

well, I'd be crafting and reading more, maybe even watching TV or writing more, but instead I'm on here talking to people all around the world and earning a few extra cents.

There would be a lot of other engaging things we would in the absence of the computer as such and that would be moreover suitable to keep us a little safe too,as reading a hand held book is much useful than reading it from the computer's screen.T.v too is a alternative too,we actually are given all that is possible these days.

the first computer network was created in 1957 by the us department of defence.the purpose was that the computer can work even though a part was scrambled.

Defense do serve the most of the part of computing from early days itself,its been so sophisticated since its being taken up by the computers for every steps taken by the government.The things wouldn't be so easy in defense oriented works whether good or bad,I suppose.

Definitely not. Our lives will not be the same as now if computers were not invented. Computers were invented for the purpose of avoiding errors and to have our works more accurate. They were invented by human beings with his own knowledge, skills and creativity. Therefore, in that way i can say that human beings can do what the computers can. Human Beings are the ones who will fix the computers when broke or unable to function as to how it should be. As to what i observe in our present society, people rely so much with computers that they sometimes forget that computers made errors too. Computers often times makes a person so lazy and unproductive. They will not use their own knowledge, energy, skills and time because computers are their to save them. Computers make our lives so easy now but it makes our skills and knowledge rotten.

Computers have taken on from humans by humans,if anyone we ever can blame anyone for our replacement in the near future then that would be we ourselves, for the computers that are doing all.

hi there! in the absence of internet, some of the "what ifs" may not be answered because it would slow the gathering of information. basically, computers were intended for military operations. now, almost everybody can have that same privilege- communication and information around the world at a glance. :)

The basic thing wouldn't be possible,right,so wouldn't have the nowadays seen things be different.The information would have been more text based,well not stones or rocks though.

Nessesity is the mother of most if not all invention, people needs thing to ease its way of life. Chinese invented abacus to be use for their daily life, some wanted it easier so the it became mechanical, then electronics, so to sum it up, it's evolution, even the software we used today.

Humans do have always tried to keep with the growing needs and yes computer has served the best of all.The slower stuffs are indeed replaced by the faster ones.

I guess it is created to make our jobs easier and faster,,to improve communication and to make things accurate... when it came out maybe it was intended for just one or few reasons...but as computer became more and more popular..people have thought of new uses for computer.. but whatever..whoever invented this thing is my hero!I adore him!

I dont think really the motto was to make things faster.. but the real thing was to automate the tasks which were human dependent and at that time he even did not expect about computer to be as fast as today's machines

Well the fast option would have been on top priority because it took ages by the brilliant of all people present at that time to get results on huge complicated calculations,there would surely have been other reasons too as you say ,to automate the different tasks.

Well, someone didn't just invent the computer that we know today. It has evolved over time, and is naturally integrated into our society. The same is true with the internet. I don't believe that it is feasible to suggest the scenario - what if computers or the internet weren't invented, since in their current state, they were not invented, but evolved from lesser technology.

in my opinion, computers were created for the purpose of executing extensive mathematical operations, but this was before. That is why microprocessors some times have its specifications indicated by how many bits it can operate. Microcontrollers ranges from 4 bit to 16 bits. Microprocessors ranges from 32 to 64 bits. 64 bit cpus were just developed several years ago. Microcontrollers or microprocessors are classified further whether it performs floating point or fixed point operations. Wikipedia has better explanation about this thing. Now computer's purpose is to simplify things, automate repetitive tasks, and make difficult things to do much more easier. Computers were used to do things fast and efficient than humans can do. Computers have even have greater application and undeniably influence our way of life.

The information you have shred of the internal coordination is good for the differences. Computer surely has kept on influencing the lives till today even after it was invented long back.The advancements in technology too has a hand in it.

Through computer internet becomes accessible to all people all over the world. Access to data and huge information is available. It makes communication fast and transaction through online could be done in a matter of seconds. Internet have greater influences every people lives which are normally not done in the past. Now days people have a varieties of computers to uses either desktop or laptop with WIFI connectivity. Absence of internet would have effects on slow progress of information exchanges between the receiver and the sender. Computer is invented to make life easy, gives access to wide ranges of information like a double encyclopedia and a bridges which connect people of various ideas, cultures and beliefs to understand each other. If computer is not invented the complete opposite of what is happening now would be the one to happen. Thus, resulting in delay, fail transactions and communication.

Hello, The computer was created I think for us to mainly quickly exchange information for everyone in the whole world to access it. If computers wouldn't exist, we couldn't communicate that quickly, mail would take weeks to get there, but an email takes a few seconds. Make sure you have a good day, Happy Lotting!!
