Apple MacIntosh Computer

IBM 5100

Dimensions of the first computer was about 8.5 feet by 3 feet. Clearly this is much larger than say the macbook air today which has dimensions of about .5 inches thick, 12 inches wide, and 8 inches deep. ARPAnet was technically the first internet or the base of internet. The world wide web was first created in 1989. Steve Wozniazk and Steve Jobs are known for the development of the Apple 1 computer in a garage. They both work part time at Apple now and hold a share of its income. Apple’s “Easter Eggs” are hidden messages throughout icons and such in their products. In the next 10 years, I believe computers will continue to advance and become even faster and smarter working than they are now.
