UK-based IT support and management group Akita created a very interesting and visually appealing infographic depicting technological (computer) advancement over the years including how much computers have altered and developed technologically in the past century.

To visualize how this technology has evolved since the first electronic programmed computer that was created in 1943, we go back in time to the first electronic computers pre 1950s. The first electronic computer was the Colossus for British codebreakers during the Second World War. The first American computer designed for business and administrative purposes was made in the 1950s. In the 1960s, a basic programming language was designed. The 1970s brought the founding of computer giants Microsoft and Apple. And in 1980s, a mini sized home computer was created, complete with a multifunctional, waterproof keyboard.
