Computers have come a long way since the time they were but only the domain of the government and corporate businesses. A few decades ago running even the most basic of tasks on the computers required a team of specialists. Today, we require computers to perform even the most basic of our own tasks! Information technology has progressed rapidly but the real catalyst behind the on-going digital revolution has been our own shift in technological philosophy. Early pioneers such as Douglas Engelbart saw the future of computers as more than just specialized machines for use of the bureaucracy. Computers could be far more personal, a household item as easy and common as the television. Attempts at improving the accessibility of computer lead to the birth of the Graphical User Interface (GUI). The trajectory was set on route to making computer interactions an integral part of our daily lives.
