FC: The Beginning of Technology

1: The picture on the left is called an abacus. Its more modern than the one on the front cover. the abacus was an aide for math. it was mostly for addition and subtraction, you can do multiplication and division but took longer to do. | The oldest abacus was dated back to 300 B.C used by the Babylonians . | Fun fact ! *pebbles comes from the Latin word "calculus" | The abacus is still used today more in the far east. The modern ones have rods with sliding rings. Older ones were used with pebbles.

2: John Napier invented the logarithms in 1617. It allowed for multiplication to happen with addition on ivory sticks | Using the logarithms are exponents i.e addition- 3x5 means 5+5+5 Exponents- 4^3=4x4x4 logarithms are more for the exponents. | *Fun facts Napier invented the logarithms for astronauts to not make mistakes!

3: Hollerith built a company, the Tabulating Machine Company which, after a few buyouts, eventually became International Business Machines, known today as IBM. | The Hollerith desk consisted of a card reader that had holes on the paper for the machine to work .

4: this is the first apple computer by Steve jobs died October 5, 2011.

5: The title of forefather of today's all-electronic digital computers is usually awarded to ENIAC, which means,Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator. Many of the technology started off with calculators!

6: this is a reel tape drive that allowed to watch motion. Today we watch the same but many of the movies are made off the computer, which is called animation.

7: Don't think: Look! -Ludwig Wittgenstein | this is an old desktop calculator. it has a micro chip in it and it acts like a computer, has a keyboard a printer and an display.

8: These are one of the first laptops made. A laptop was a easier way of doing work and stuff on the go anywhere at any time. | It had everything a desktop would. keyboard, screen, memory, software everyhting.

9: Today there is many different types of brand named computer but they all run under windows, unless its apple. They all run under the operating system D.O.S. | Technology is getting better and better. having an i pod that can hold thousands of songs more than a huge stack of C.D's. Touch screens are be coming very popular and are almost on everything, phones computers watches and many others.

10: For the future i think many of the things are going to be holographic. y not go another step we have computers in our pocket! pretty soon they will have the ipods as little as your ear so you dont have to carry any big devices. Our future generations are getting smarter on technology.

13: Go and walk with Nature; thou wilt find Full many a gem in her enchanted cup. -Isaac McLellan

18: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
