When the word computer is heard we at once think of the desk top PC left on the desk at home or in your office. True that it is the PC we call a computer but these electronic brains are embedded in many instruments in day to day use from toy cars to fighter jets.
The earliest computers were made in the mid 19th century. The were very large sometimes filling a room the size your of your bed room. These were improved and with the advent of digital technology they improved vastly and reached the present day state.
Basically to complete a computer there are two things which should work together. They are hard ware and software. Hardware is the physical instruments you can see while software are the programs running inside the machine making it to work. In a basic computer there are three parts in the hardware. They are the input device the output device and the central processing unit. The basic input devices are the key board and the mouse. The basic output device is the monitor. The central processing unit is the real computer which does the calculation and execution of programs.
Software too has two sets. One is the operating system which makes the connection between the hardware and the programs. The other programs are the various programs used by the computer they could be word processers, spread sheets, programming software and so on.
Though the above is the basic PC presently it has developed into various branches. While basic computer has evolved into smaller laptops note books and net books the microcomputers are embedded in many instruments like the toys, games and industrial robots.
The computer is keeping on developing and soon we might be able to see a car being driven by one of these. Still the PC at home left on your desk is your faithful friend.
There’s little doubt that the most popular tablet is the iPad. Tablets, such as the iPad have enabled users to harness the power of the PC in a more compact and touch enabled functionality. Tablets are superior to smart phones and laptops in many ways. The following are the reasons that make tablets such as the iPad superior over your laptop or smart phone.
Tablets let gamers play games with a large enough screen, without the use of mouse or a flat surface, one can simply lay down and play games on their iPad – if they like.
For students and readers alike, tablets compared to smart phones and laptops make better e-readers. Their size and portability can be compared to a book, this design and capability features make tablets great for reading e-books or PDF, word or other
Comparable capabilities to a laptop:
Next, some tablet such as the iPad, can be a better alternative to the laptop – but it depends on how you utilize them. Think about it, tablets can let users video chat on Skype, send email, surf the web and you can do all these things without having to get off your couch or bed.
Great for office meetings:
Tablets are not just built for play or fun, they can make excellent tool for enhancing workplace productivity. For once, if you are in office meetings, you can take notes using your tablet. You don’t need to run back at your desk and re-enter all the important information on your laptop or desktop. You can simply share your digital notes on your cloud account and then access it on your work computer.
Better entertainment during long flights:
If you own a tablet, and have used it during long flights, you know how convenient it is to watch shows and movies on them, as compared to smart phones with their small screen and laptops with their bulky size and battery consumption rate. One can say that tablets are built for non-stop entertainment for long travel.
Quicker startup times:
Some tablets running android or iOS can load significantly faster than your laptop. This means that you don’t have to wait five minutes or longer for your computer to load up. A tablet can, on average can load-up in less than two minutes. This means that you can quickly get to what you want to do, and at some point, quicker startup times can make all the difference.

Today we’re gonna talk about portable battery chargers. They’re these little things you carry around and when your phone or your ipad or whatever gets low on juice you plug ‘em in and get to keep using your DEVICE. It’s a battery… to charge your battery! They’re popular for travelers, ever present on the conference circuit, and I hear you see ‘em in schools more as teachers get more tolerant of MOBILE PHONE USE. You got a buncha classes or panels or whatever throughout the day, gotta take photos or notes or post to twitter, use maps, you’re gonna run through your battery really quick. And that’s, I mean, you can’t have that right? Dead phone? YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD. Which brings us to something called, “Battery Anxiety” also referred to as “NOMOPHOBIA” (fear of being without one’s mobile device). We’ve all felt it, that sinking feeling while browsing Instagram or Facebook when you see that little red bar appear saying you’ve got less than 20% battery remaining. But why do we feel this way? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Hello YouTube Scrappers! I’ve been super busy. Sorry for not having a video last week. I’ve been hitting eBay really hard lately and along with that it’s yard sale season so that takes up most of my weekends now. But I’m still getting weekly scrap loads from my main contact and from other word of mouth. I don’t film everything I get just the large loads. This load had a ton of cool items. There were massive battery chargers with lots of brass in them. I also got another large amount of flat screens, printers and wiring. There were 3 towers also mixed in. I’ve already processed this load since I filmed and got just under $125 for it! Not bad for $4 bucks in gas. The video camera shown in this photo is for sale if your interested. Let me know. I hope your all having a wonderful weekend of scrapping. As always I hope my videos motivate you to go out and get contacts/contracts. And don’t forget you can get cheap or FREE scrap at yard sales/estate sales too. Just give them your card and go pick up what is left when the sale is over. I hope you like this video.
