Most people appear to be nonchalant in their thinking or usage of a computer, laptop, etc. In 1822, Charles Babbage purposes the development of the Different Engine. The Different Engine is the first mechanical computer or automatic computer engine concept. As generations past, inventors merge the principles of Rhymes of History and reconstruct the embodiment of the computer. Kevin Kelly, in his “The Next 5,00vDays of the Web” speech, renders the notion of the Web as being one global machine and its implications on the future generations.
