Post of the Month

This was our most viewed post in the past month, so true to our page name, here’s our post of the month!

Back in 1950 a guy named Edmund Berkeley designed the first computer called “Simon”. It cost about 300 dollars back then and was the first true desktop PC.

After this discovery, a theory arose in the 1960’s that is still true today called Moore’s Law. It stated that every 18 months the number of transistors on a motherboard will double. This was eventually transcribed to mean that every 18 months computers double in performance power.
So when you decide to build your own computer you are building something that is 31 times more powerful than the first desktop computer.

As shown above since the Simon project computer performance has sky rocketed.

In my next post I will be showing you how to start building your own Simon killer!
