Why Computers are so popular

Why Computers are so famous. Discussion between a Teacher and a Student!

Teacher: So, tell me why Computers are so popular what is so special about them?

Student: Sir because they are fast.

Teacher: So what even a bike is fast (smiling)

Student: But Sir, a Computer does calculation faster than we can do.

Teacher: A calculator can also do calculations faster than we can, so why waste so much money on a Computer? We could buy a calculator for calculations.

Student: Hmmm... yes but we can listen to songs and watch movies

Teacher: Even we can do the same with a mobile also.

Student: But Sir with a Computer we can do much more! We can write letters, and edit photos and get in connection with other people!

Teacher: yesss!!! That’s the specialty of the Computer. With a Computer you can do many things. Like we can create documents, create graphics, edit them and also create animations. And the best part is that we can get in contact with anyone in the world with internet connection.

Student: That's great, instead of buying a calculator, a typewriter, music system, music CD's and instead of maintaining books for educational and business purposes we can just buy a Computer! And we can store all the stuff... that's great it an "ALL IN ONE MACHINE"

Teacher: Yes and also we can use the Computer for various scientific experiments and research. Including astronomical and even we can launch satellites and we can calculate the distance from earth to sun or any other star in the sky

Student: Wow... its amazing Sir.

Teacher: Also we can capture high definition pictures from the space.

Student: Wow!

Teacher: And also we can study our own planet in a more detailed way. The Computer can store information of all the species and we can get the information when we want.

Student: Amazing, Sir that is really amazing. We just use Computer just as an entertainment tool!. I never knew of it potential.

Teacher: Yes it is the most amazing machine man has ever made...

Students: Tell us some more possibilities a Computer can do.

Teacher: Sure! We will learn more in the next class... Till than have a nice time! :-)
