7. What was the ENIAC and the EDVAC and then the UNIVAC?
and What did they do for the United States Government Census Bureau and the General Electric Corporation?
8. What is a Transistor and What is a Semiconductor? Why is the "Semi" important in "Semiconductor"?
9. What was the name of the first computer to beat a human opponent in Chess? and What year was this accomplished?

12. Do you own an iPod, an iPhone, or an iPad? Why or Why Not...?
Imagine and Explain in a brief essay, a soon-future iDevice...
Now go Invent It... Thank you very much...
That means you have to:
1. Write a brief description of your iDevice and how it works, and
2. Draw accurate diagrams of the iDevice and its Parts.
(You can search Google Patents for 7 million examples... :-)
