What is Computer?

A computer is abbreviated as comp or 'puter. The term "computer" was originally given to humans who performed numerical calculations using mechanical calculators, such as the abacus and slide rule. Today's computers are electronic devices that accept data (input), process that data, produce output, and store (storage) the results.
