Remember ENIAC?

        "No doubt you've heard of ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) -- arguably the first real computer.Here is an article about this computer you might enjoy reading," Jim Hamm gets our attention. 

        "You'll note the picture shows it being used at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, in 1947, where I first went for basic training in the Army -- but not in 1947, though.
        "Also note ENIAC could do 5000 instructions per second while, by contrast, the new iPhone 6 can do 25 billion calculations per second! As the old saying goes, 'we've come a long way, baby'...(grin)…"  Jim.
