Mircosoft included Solitaire in their operating systems “to soothe people intimidated by the operating system” and introduce users to graphic user interfaces and taught them how to use a mouse.

All the domain names such as Google, Log In or Sign Up were free until 1995, but now everyone has to pay for every new domain name.

A professional typist types fast and types great amount of words daily. If we measure this as distance, than it will become 12.6 miles a day for the fingers of the typist to cover each day.

The original Halo was 3rd person and designed for Mac. In 2000 Microsoft bought Bungie and made it an exclusive for the original Xbox.

During IBM Watson’s Jeopardy Game, it stored all 15 terabytes of its knowledge in RAM, including every page of Wikipedia in existence.

One of the most amazing personal computer facts is that early hard drives in PCs held 20 Megabytes (MB), and the price was about $800 whereas an $8 flash drive today holds 2 Gigabytes (GB) computer memory. That's a 100-fold 'decrease' in price for a 100-fold 'increased' computer performance!

PC viruses are little files or codes that have been written to ruin your computer. So you need to install an Anti-Virus scanner, no matter you're connecting to the Internet or not. AVG antivirus is quite popular today. A 'firewall' is another way of defense which helps block other computers and programs from connecting to you and playing with your stuff.

The first consumer computers were introduced by IBM in 1974/75. In 1981, Microsoft introduced the computer operating system of the century. User-friendly Microsoft Windows was first introduced in November 1985.

Tim Berners-Lee in 1990 first coined the phrase 'World Wide Web' and he is considered as father of Internet. The Internet gained popularity with the release of the first popular web browser Mosaic in 1993.

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer from parts they got for free from their employers. Their idea of a 'PC' was rejected by the employers!

One of the most amazing PC facts is that the computer mouse, the windowing GUI (graphical user interface, use of icons), laser printing and the network card were all developed at one company, 'Xerox' in Palo Alto, California.

Do you know that the computer in your cell phone has more processing power than all the computers in the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander that helped 2 men to land on the moon?

I was really surprised (and pleased) when I came to know that the popular programming language COBOL was invented by Admiral Grace Hopper, the first female admiral in the US Navy.
