Computing and Connecting in the 21st Century Series


Originally conceived to assist with complex mathematical problems and computations, computers once existed as far simpler versions of their modern counterparts. As the ability to process and store data has become increasingly sophisticated, so too have the devices and resources, from iPads to social networking sites, that allow us to stay plugged in. These exciting volumes examine the technologies that keep us informed, entertained, and connected, wholly revolutionizing life on Earth. Along the way, readers are introduced to the individuals whose work brought forth the systems and networks that we have come to depend on today.
