He identifies 4 significant threads that run all through all of computing's technological improvement: digitization--the coding of data, computation, and keep an eye on in binary shape, ones and zeros; the convergence of a number of streams of ideas, units, and machines, yielding greater than the sum in their elements; the regular improve of digital expertise, as characterised famously via "Moore's Law"; and the human-machine interface. Ceruzzi publications us via computing historical past, telling how a Bell Labs mathematician coined the notice "digital" in 1942 (to describe a high-speed approach to calculating utilized in anti-aircraft devices), and recounting the advance of the punch card (for use within the 1890 U.S. Census). He describes the ENIAC, outfitted for medical and armed forces functions; the UNIVAC, the 1st basic objective laptop; and ARPANET, the Internet's precursor. Ceruzzi's account lines the world-changing evolution of the pc from a room-size ensemble of equipment to a "minicomputer" to a computer computing device to a pocket-sized shrewdpermanent mobile. He describes the improvement of the silicon chip, that may shop ever-increasing quantities of information and enabled ever-decreasing machine dimension. He visits that hotbed of innovation, Silicon Valley, and brings the tale as much as the current with the web, the area huge net, and social networking.
