SOME FACTS ABOUT COMPUTERS



    COMPUTERS  


Electronics have become a part of our life  and we can't imagine a life without computers.Man and these machines have the brain. but no doubt,only man has got the mind.
The word COMPUTER is a beautiful acronym.It reflects everything:
Commonly Operated Machines Particularly Used for Trade , Education and Research.

SOME INTERESTING INFORMATIONS ABOUT THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT:


Apple Computers
It was the favourite fruit of founder Steve Jobs. He was three months late in filing a name for the business, and he threatened to call his company Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn't suggest a better name by 5 O'clock.

Google
The name started as a joke boasting about the amount of information the search-engine would be able to search. It was originally named 'Googol', a word for the number represented by 1 followed by 100 zeros.After founders - Stanford graduate students Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented their project to an angel investor, they received a cheque made out to 'Google'

Yahoo!
The word was invented by Jonathan Swift and used in his book 'Gulliver's Travels'. It represents a person who is repulsive in appearance and action and is barely human. Yahoo! Founders Jerry Yang and David Filo selected the name because they considered themselves yahoos

Intel
Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore Noyce' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain so they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics.

Microsoft
Coined by Bill Gates to represent the company that was devoted to MICROcomputer SOFTware. Originally christened Micro-Soft, the '-' was removed later on.

BONUS: JUST FOR JOKE!

Computers are Like Women Because...
No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on 
accessories for it.
You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it's wrong.
Computers are Like Men Because...
 In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
 They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.
 They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better  model.
They hear what you say, but not what you mean.
