"The Computer Revolution"

The first computers appeared right after World War II, and since that time they have changed not only the lives of Americans. They have been changing the lives of people all

over the world.

At present wherever the man turns, he finds a computer working.

Computers in banks can transfer money from one account to another. Computers are used to launch, guide and track spacecrafts and satellites; they help predict weather and earthquakes. They help people make long distance and local telephone calls. Computers are also used when one reserves space on an airplane. In medical laboratories, computers have reduced the errors in testing, and they have saved doctors' countless hours of work.

Many stores use computers to keep track of sales and orders. Also, many stores use optical scanners to record purchases and total prices. A tiny computer chip controls your washing machine. Computers linked to TV, telephone and satellite networks spread information throughout the world.

Without special training it is impossible to understand exactly how a computer does its work. Nevertheless, many people use computers in their daily lives. Computers are everywhere. They are so much a part of our lives that we usually don't even know they are there.

Computers have become the foundation of the modern working world. Today, virtually all types of jobs use them to some degree and all the countries are affected by the "computer revolution".

In the future computers will be a million times faster than they are today. They will become easier to use, but anyone who has not learnt how to use the new technology will be seriously disadvantaged, particularly in the field of employment.

30. The first computers appeared in the middle of the 20tli century. □

33. Computers have become the foundation of the modern working world. □

34. The problem is that in future computers will become more and more complicated to be used. □

b) Write down your answers to the following questions.

35. When did the first computers appear?
