Milestones Of Computer World

If you are able to read this post than it means that probably you have a Desktop/Laptop/Tablet/Cell Phone, a working Internet connection and a Facebook account (chances are that you have come across my post in any Facebook Group). So, you can't deny the fact that Computer & Internet are playing a great role in your life. They are affecting you in many ways as you explore new stuffs, connect with friends, increase your business and entertain yourself. Today, one definition of being modern is that you are smart enough to handle smart phone as well as a Facebook/Whats app account. Am I right? Yes, I am.
But, the matter-of-fact is that the journey of computing- from Abacus to latest iPhone is not that easy at all. It took hundreds of year, hard labor, brilliant brain, innovative idea(s) and passion to develop computing. So, today I am going to share 10 milestones of Computer World. I have compiled the list in chronological order, not on the basis of importance.

1. Microsoft: Professionals' First Choice

6. Blogging: Express Yourself On Web


Honestly I would like to commit that today Blogging is the best way to express yourself and in a country like India, it is a medium to connect with mass audiences. The best blogging platform is Blogger- developed by Pyra Labs on 23rd August 1999 and further bought by Google in 2003. Blogger provides a free subdomain, unlimited bandwidth and storage space. Blogger blogs are hosted on Google's own server and it is almost impossible to hack them.

7. G.T.A. Series: Ultimate Entertainment Package

Ultimate Entertainment Package
You might wonder why I have included a game in this list. But, believe me, G.T.A. Series games are worthy of holding a place in the list. Developed by Rockstar Games in 2001, the game is very popular among teenager computer users. The game is based on Liberty City, Vice City & San Andreas which are stand-ins for New York , Miami and Southern California, respectively. The game falls in action-adventure category and lots of gun, weapon, tank, bike, car, other vehicles, dance club, helicopter, ambulance, sea beach, hotel make it very interesting to play.

8. Mozilla Firefox: Free & Open Source Web Browser

Once upon a time, Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator were only web browser available for Internet users. However, on 23rd September 2002, Mozilla Foundation launched a new, free and Open Source Web Browser- Mozilla Firefox. Attractive design, stable performance, availability of plug-in and user friendly interface make Firefox so popular.

9. Facebook: Connect With Friends


Well, it is useless to introduce Facebook to you. Facebook is world's No.1 Social Networking site founded by Mark Zuckerberg on 4th February 2004.
