Console Gaming vs. Computer Gaming by Jared Strop
... Computer gaming is best for Real Time Strategy (RTS) games, First Person Shooters (FPS), Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORG), Flight Simulation games, and Point and Click Adventure games. The consoles on the other hand are better for Fighting games, Action/Adventure games, Platformers, Role Playing Games (RPG), and Sports games. Tech savvy can possibly be an issue.

Can a Golf Handicap Tracker Really Improve Your Game? by Patrick Forbes

Computers Are Stupid, Stupid, Stupid! by Mike Bryant
... Anything that a computer creates like a digital image is built purely from mathematical formulas, not because the computer thought it was pretty. In fact, computers can't think at all, not yet anyway. Maybe someday we'll have computers that have self-realization, to know and to understand and to think. But that day is probably a long way off. For now, we're stuck with unthinking fast calculators. The next time you sit in front of the computer and start to get frustrated because the computer ...

The Rather Recent Past of Computers by Driz Memok

In 1975, an IBM mainframe computer capable of 10 million instructions per second would have cost around 10 million dollars.
