Computers: Past, Present, and Future
Computers have been around for years and help a great deal at home and in
the workplace. I have owned a computer for about three years now and it has been
very helpful when it comes to projects and type-written essays. I have completed
schoolwork and projects more times than I can count. Not only can you use the
computer for word-processing programs, but for games and online service as well.
I have used AOL for a couple of years and have found that there are some
problems with it so now I use Costco.
A person can spend hours on the computer whether online or not. Usually I
spend most of my time online because it takes a long time for things to be found
sometimes. You can find anything online from a new or used car, tickets to your
favorite football game, or even just chatting with some friends so you dont have to
tie up the phone line all the time.
There is a webpage for almost anything that a
person can think of. Sports, news all over the world, traveling information, music,
and much more. All you have to do is type in a specific word that you are looking
for and the computer will find it for you.
The workplace is an important place for a computer as well. Now days
almost every company consists of a few computers to perform basic tasks for the
company. Even a small company such as a local pub may have a computer to do
all the cashier calculations. Computers are beginning to take over the workplace
and are making less jobs for people. Computers can solve problems and do
mathematical things so a person doesn’t have to. Different companies have certain
programs that fit for that one company. For a banking company, they may use a
program that does math and may put peoples names in a certain order to make it
easier to get in and out without wasting too much time.
I worked at Home Depot for a while and they used computers for
everything. If a person wanted to place an order for some lumber without being in
the store, they could. All the information was placed in the computer so that when
they did come in to pick it up, it would be quick and easy. They even delivered to
your home which means that they needed a local address and phone number which
all came from the computer. During inventory, we had to mark all the merchandise
in the entire store. To make it a little easier, we use a scanner( or small, handheld
computer) to find the proper CPU or SKU number. It made it a lot easier to do the
What does the future have in store? In the future computers will take over
people’s job. Soon we will be able to order lunch over the computer with one click
of a button. You can go grocery shopping form your computer at home. All cars
and automobiles will have computers in them. Soon we will be able to talk to the
computer and it will talk back. They already have computer programs that allow
people to communicate with each other and you can see their face on the screen
As you can see, computers will take over the future and we wont have to
work anymore. You can simply tell a computer what to do and it will do it.
Changes in the workplace are already taking place as we speak. In about 10 more
years we will have a lot less employed people and the unemployment rate will be at
an all time high. I just hope that Me and my family will all have a spot in the
