A Look at the History of Computers

Joaquina Erdmann

Before the age of electronics, the closest thing to a computer was the abacus, although, strictly speaking, the abacus is actually a calculator since it requires a human operator. Computers, on the other hand, perform calculations automatically by following a series of built-in commands called software.

In the 20th century, breakthroughs in technology allowed for the ever-evolving computing machines that we now depend upon so totally, we practically never give them a second thought. But even prior to the advent of microprocessors and supercomputers, there were certain notable scientists and inventors who helped lay the groundwork for the technology that’s since drastically reshaped every facet of modern life.

Which laptop features are important?

Once you’ve made the choice to purchase a laptop, look for key features like display resolution, storage and wireless access that will help make your computing experience go smoothly. Laptops with high-resolution displays are ideal for editing photos, playing games and watching movies, while touch-screen laptops provide a more hands-on experience. As far as storage, you can choose the right combination of capacity and speed with a solid state drive, hard disk drive or a hybrid hard drive, which offers the best of both. Staying connected to the Web, your office and other devices is a snap with a laptop or Chromebook that has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®.

    NetAddiction | Internet Addiction Test (IAT)

    Joaquina Erdmann

    The Internet Addiction Test emerged as the first validated measure of Internet and technology addiction. The Internet Addiction suite of tests brings together the Internet Addiction Test (IAT) and the Internet Addiction Test for Families (IAT-F). The IAT is a self-report instrument for adolescents and adults. The IAT-F is for children and adolescents and completed by an informant who knows the youth well. Both instruments can be used together in assessment to obtain a well-rounded profile of the client’s Internet addiction and also to identify discrepancies amongst raters, who could benefit from psychoeducation.
