Hello and welcome to this week’s Tuesday Trivia. Each week we ask you a question, and you have a week to answer before the answer gets added to the thread. Don’t look up the answer! This is trivia for you, not Google. 😉
 
What's the name of first (electronic, general purpose) computer?
If you think you know the answer, go ahead and use the button below to give it a go.

Good Trivia question Lara. My guess on the answer was wrong this time around. :S

This one is kinda tricky even to set up, because there are so many particular variables than can change the answer. Needless to say I learned a fair amount about early computers this morning!

That was a tough one. I didn't know so I guessed. I was wrong. 😳

I just had to take a guess and of course I got it totally wrong. That was a good one Lara.

I'll make next week's easier.....maybe. I was going to do something about Turing but I remembered you're a big fan of his and would probably know the answer.

I do not know all that much about him really but just look on him as a person who is slowly getting forgotten about despite what he did for modern computers.

That's true, which is sad cause he was such a major part of tech history, and history in general really.

No! No! Don't make it easier. If anything make it harder. I'm learning something new here at Trivia evey week even if I guess get the wrong answer. 😃

Well I knew the Answer for that one as I did some research many years ago! 😃 But it is a tough one if you don't know.
