As the application of computer has been increasing, but somehow a few of the coolest facts about the computer has been known less to us. It may be due to lack of interest or it can be the extreme use that has provided us the confidence of knowing everything about computers and its application. So, hereby are few things that will ensure us that lots of things are still left to know such as:
Yahoo! Was akebono.standford.edu
Almost all of us use the yahoo mails, browsers but did you know that the earlier name was akebono.standford.edu. The domain was invented in 1994 at Stanford University founded by Jerry Yang. Later in 1995, it was renamed as YAHOO!
The full form of the domain name as the backronym for Yahoo! is ”yet another hierarchically organized oracle” which was created on 18th January 1995. We still use it as Yahoo but while typing on it we never knew about only facts of the computer.

You are using keyboards for typing every day, it runs on the tips of our fingers but may not have reached the record of Barbara Blackburn. She had the speed of 212 wps in the test typing in a Dvorak keyboard in 2005. Well, it is unimaginable for anyone who is regularly using the keyboard and a computer.
Brain leads computer

So, though we think that we are a slave to this amazing technology it is our brain that controls the entire strategy.
