Computer languages[edit]

The history of early computer development is an extraordinary journey between human knowledge, innovation, and invention in computer that transforms and revolutionizes the way we work and live. Originally, computer was only used by government and the military. Nowadays, computer technology reaches into all aspects of our daily activities, from the exclusive domain of businesses, communication, education, and politics, to commerce, recreation, and even dating.[1]


Human input devices[edit]

  • text-entry device - computing - Technology is moving beyond mechanical keyboards for character entry into software systems; virtual keyboards, stroke recognition, etc. for non-alphabetic languages, other types of character entry are use; voice methods as well; overview article is needed (links to keyboards, etc.; Codwiki (talk) 15:11, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

List of keyboard manufacturers - computing - Competitive market and many choices are available, but users cannot see a list of all possibilities.

Displays and screens[edit]

  • List of Reference Design display adapters - Vendors often start with reference design from ATI or NVIDIA but quickly turn to their own designs. It's really frustrating to try to find reference design cards.

Memory Devices - The 3 of the main avenues of data storage[2] are a computer’s hard disk drive, optical storage, and solid state devices. A hard disk drive is a form of magnetic storage and is built into the computer’s system unit. Data is stored on a hard disk platter made of aluminum or glass & coated in iron oxide. Optical storage may come in the form of a disc (CD, DVD, Blu-ray) and store data as microscopic spots on the discs surface. Solid state storage (aka flash memory) is technology that stores data in rewritable devices that can be operated via cameras, mp3 players.

From RFC[edit]

User:Pastore Italy pointed out that RFC 2828 defines industry-standard terms and requested that Wikipedia have coverage for them. Some of the blue links below may be to pages that don't reference the computer security meaning; these should be checked and changed to something like "Term (computers)" if necessary. Some might just need redirects.
