Computer

A computer is a machine that uses electronics to input, process, and then output data. Input of data means to read information from a keyboard, a storage device like a hard drive, or a sensor.
The computer processes or changes the data by following the instructions in software programs. A program is a list the steps for doing arithmetic, comparing data, and re-arranging data.
The data is then saved in a storage device, shown on a display, or sent to another computer.
Computers can be connected together to form a network such as the internet, allowing the computers to communicate with each other.

We spend a lot of our lives in our computers. We live in our computers, and we do little things to make ourselves feel more at home in them - a little more cozy.
We change the wallpaper, install some new apps, buy a pretty case and some stickers for the back. We personalize what we can, what we’re permitted.
