    "electronic device": or not. The first computer was invented several thousand years ago as the loom; the next kind was the geartrain over two thousand years ago as in the Anticýthera orrery. Thumb down.

    This is well out of date but the biggest thing is, it missed the real basic stuff. Computers are devices which have a data input, a central processor, and a data output. ("Garbage in, Garbage out!") They have 3 basic functions: counting, comparing quantities and pseudo-randomizing. That’s about it. Remarkable huh?
