Today life can’t be imagined without a computer. It makes accessing information and communicating across the globe possible in a few seconds. But, computers have to be used carefully.

Besides, their excessive use can lead to computer addiction. The Story of Computer takes you on a journey spanning the invention of a simple abacus to the evolution of a range of hi-tech computers. It also educates you on making smart green choices when using these wonder machines!
