Moore's Law and the Evolution of Computers
Gordon Moore
Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Intel Corp.
Author of "Moore's Law"
"the number of transistors on a silicon chip will double every two years"
By: Kimberly Vincent, Arlecia Smith, Wynter Rackley, Jasmine Malloy and LaToya Williams
The Sound
Sound Cards
Audio Formats
Evolution of Speakers
Definition- Sound
Any disturbance that travels through an elastic medium such as air, ground, or water to be heard by the human ear.
Slickness of the Smartphone
Breakthrough Of the Laptop
Evolution of the Desktop
(Personal Computer)

A device that can be slotted into a computer to allow the use of audio components for multimedia applications.
Medium for storage of sound and music. Use for recording media and recording formats of audio content.
According to Moore's Law, the number of transistors on a chip doubles approximately every two years. In psychology with Neuroscience, we have the Stevenson & Kording's Law: the number of neurons that can be tracked in the brain doubles every 7.4 years.
Psychological Point of View
Why have Moore's observations and predictions held true over so many decades? Moore's Law isn't really a law at all -- in fact, there's no fundamental law of physics behind it. Moore's Law only holds true because of the actions of human beings. But what keeps the cycle going even as the challenge to make more powerful circuits grow.
Consumers also drive Moore's Law. The rapid development of electronics has created a sense of expectation among consumers. Every year, faster and more advanced electronics hit the market. From the consumer's point of view, there's no reason not to expect something better next year.
Data Mining
(sometimes called data or knowledge discovery) is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information - information that can be used to increase revenue, cuts costs, or both.
Issues with Social Media
Social Media Takeover
Reduced learning and research capabilities, multitasking, reduction in real human contact, reduces command over language use age and creative writing skills, time wastage, and effect on health.
Business Intelligence
Business intelligence keeps you informed of your market trends, alerts you to new avenues of generating revenue, and helps you determine how your competition is doing. Without that knowledge you may suffer false growth or setbacks.
& Beyond
1st Generation: The Vacuum Tube Years
The 2nd Generation: Era of the Transistor
The invention of the transistor would replace the vacuum tube forever and mark a new beginning for the computer.
3rd Generation: Integrated Circuits Miniaturize the Computer
The integrated circuit packs a huge number of transistor onto a single chip.
4th Generation: The Microprocessor, Video Cards, and Network Interface Cards
The microprocessor was characterized by a single chip that could do all the processing of a full scale computer.
The Future of Computers: Google Glass

The Outcome of Audio Formats
Without any moving parts, a vacuum tubes could take very weak signals and make them stronger by amplifying it.
First generation computers were huge, slow, expensive, undependable and were powered using vacuum tubes.
Vacuum tubes functioned much like light bulbs and could stop and start the flow of electricity instantly.
A transistor performs all the same functions as vacuum tube; however, it's faster, smaller, more reliable, and cheaper to build than a vacuum tube.
A single transistor replaced the equivalent of 40 vacuum tubes.
Placing such large numbers of transistors on a chip greatly increased the power of a single computer and simultaneously lowered the cost.
Since the invention of the integrated circuit, Moore's Law has held true and shrinking both the size and cost of computers while enhancing its power.
Microprocessor chips are equivalent in size to pencil erasers and handle all the computing and logic work of a computer.
Microprocessors were initially made to be used in calculators. It led, however, to the invention of personal computers.
A video card, sometimes called a graphic card, is an expansion card that generates a feed of output images to a display.
A network interface card (NIC) is a computer circuit board or card that is installed in a computer so that it can be connected to a network.

The Appeal of the Tablet
Design of the First Generation (1946-1958)
Evolution of the Second Generation (1959-1964)
The Breakthrough of The Third Generation (1965-1970)
Then, Now, and Tomorrow, the Fourth Generation (1971- Today
Invent of the Laptop to the Smartphone
The touch, the feel, the boldness of our Technology!!!

The Cutting Edge Surface
The 1st computer had a single small piezoelectric speaker that produced a beep or series of beeps.
In 1991 Abinawan Puracchidas invented the 1st external computer speakers.
