    Interesting article, Glenda. Thanks! B) I remember seeing a movie from the 1950s, with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy that had one of those Colossal computers in it. Huge! :D :D

    It depends upon what YOU want to call a computer, I learned that the first device that did something without human interaction was the self adjusting windmill.
    There were relay based computers in the late 30’s -40’s they would make adjustments to other devices.
    In the 40’s the Navy had electro mechanical computers that would tell when to drop depth charges on submarines, I still have some parts of them.
    In the 70’s there were the IBM 360 and 370 computers that were about 60″ wide and 72″ high and then had rooms full of disk drives for memory
    So computers as we know them probably be would be starting in the late 60’s, my guess.
