In the middle sits the operating system. ■ Hardware evolution is on track to achieve further size, speed and cost improvements as predicted by Moore’s Law. ■ The methods used to develop software and hardware are now quite similar. ■ The technologies found in broadcasting centres, telephone exchanges and computer units have converged to the point where everything can be viewed as data which requires collecting, processing and routing. ■ The Windows graphical user interface rapidly opened up access to computers beyond the small clique of computer science graduates.

If it is not in the correct position on the shelf you have to look around to see whether it has been moved; then you try to track it down using the catalogue, and finally you ask someone to help.
