Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The worlds first programmable electronic computer 1944 The British Colossus computer During World War II, the British made significant efforts at Bletchley Park to break German military communications. As part of an attack against German cyphers, Professor Max Newman and his colleagues (including Alan Turing) designed the first programmable electronic general purpose computer, the Colossus. The US-built ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), the first large-scale general-purpose electronic computer, publicly validated the use of electronics for large-scale computing. This was crucial for the development of modern computing, initially because of the enormous speed advantage, but ultimately because of the potential for miniaturization. 1946 1943 The cost of early computers was so high that only governments could afford them. But in the 1970s electronics became cheaper and the first practical business computers appeared.After the success of the PDP-8, leading hardware engineer Edson DeCastro designed a 16-bit machine under the codename "PDP-X The -11 was one the (if not the) most successful computers of all times. 1975 The 1980s was the age of the first personal computer.IBM launched the IBM Personal Computer in 1981. For the first time, ordinary people could (just about) afford their own computer.The IBM Personal Computer, commonly known as the IBM PC, is the original version and progenitor of the IBM PC compatible hardware platform. The generic term "personal computer" was in use before 1981, but because of the success of the IBM Personal Computer, the term "PC" came to mean more specifically a desktop microcomputer compatible with IBM's PC products. But for most people, computers were mysterious things that only scientists and engineers knew about. To change all that, the BBC Micro was created in 1981 with the plan to let school children have a go with learning to program a computer for themselves.The BBC Microcomputer System, wasbuilt by the Acorn Computer company for the BBC Computer Literacy Project, operated by the British Broadcasting Corporation. Designed with an emphasis on education, it was notable for its ruggedness, expandability and the quality of its operating system. 1982 1981 In the 1990s computers started to have a bit more style and they continued to drop in priceT.his is the Apple iMac G3 which was an all-in-one computer.The iMac G3 is a line of personal computers developed, manufactured, and sold by Apple Computer from 1998 until 2003. Noted for its innovative design via the use of translucent and brightly colored plastics, It was, nevertheless, criticized for abandoning then-currenttechnological standards like the floppy drive and the Apple Desktop Bus connector in favor of the emerging USB standard 2015 1998 HISTORY OF COMPUTING through 5 of the most important computer of all time
