The Computing blog With… FIVE loyal Followers


a computer isn’t just a convenience, it’s very nearly a necessity. Computers have become a household thing, when just ten or fifteen years ago, they weren’t part of many people’s household. The personal computer can be a real tool to survive, permitting you to do your banking on the internet, apply for unemployment, read the latest world news, or even meet a new friend. The internet has become part of our day to day lives in many cases.

Computers have gone from being room sized things that were only owned by companies to being small and relatively easy to buy and easy to use fixtures in most homes.

The rapid growth of the computer as a home tool has some of us scratching our head because we can’t use it properly, while others take it for granted and view it as some kind of new and improved blender-like appliance, and we can’t figure out why it’s not doing the job it should be doing.

What if you are new to computing? What is you’re in the “lost generation” of people, who are aged 45-65, who weren’t raised with computers, but now find themselves in the position of needing to use one?
