Fact 6

Once again, fact of the day brought to you by my genius brother. What a smartie pants.

The first digital computer was finished being built in 1946, ENIAC. However, in 1973 a judge ruled that the ENIAC was, in fact, not the first digital computer, and instead it was the ABC. Many people still consider the ENIAC to be the first computer because it was the first fully functional digital computer.

I also want to state as a note that if you have an interesting fact you would like to see featured do not hesitate to comment on one of the posts with the fact. Also, include any resources you may have used or how you know the fact. Have a great day!
