Today, it won’t be wrong to call this world a “Computer world”. Not a single field is untouched from it. Every part of life, directly or indirectly is effected by Computer or Information Technology. We are able to communicate with people from thousand of miles, we can see each other via video chat. If we need anything just Google it. City map, station, road map everything is available in just one click. World has become so small. Through internet, reaching USA will hardly take some micro second.
“I think it’s brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television – but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent. —“Steve Jobs “
Above lines were told by a great person, founder and ex-CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs. He himself was so passionate about his work. During his time, Apple earned so much fame, money. Apple is one of the top manufacturer of computer, laptop, music player and accessories.

Wherever we want to go just do one click.

But later 80’s it was introduced to the world and since then it is developing and developing. Computer and Internet have become as essential part of our life. We can’t look forward without these.
