 Computer science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Computer science, or computing science, is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems.
Computer science began to be established as a distinct academic discipline in the 1960s, with the creation of the first computer science departments and degree programs.
Early computer science was strongly influenced by the work of mathematicians such as Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing, and there continues to be a useful interchange of ideas between the two fields in areas such as mathematical logic, category theory, domain theory, and algebra.

 What is computer? - a definition from Whatis.com
- A computer is a device that accepts information (in the form of digitalized data) and manipulates it for some result based on a program or sequence of instructions on how the data is to be processed.
A program may be invariable and built into the computer (and called logic circuitry as it is on microprocessors) or different programs may be provided to the computer (loaded into its storage and then started by an administrator or user).
Apart from mechanical calculators, the first really useable computers began with the vacuum tube, accelerated with the invention of the transistor, which then became embedded in large numbers in integrated circuits, ultimately making possible the relatively low-cost personal computer.

 Alan Turing Scrapbook - Who invented the computer?
I wouldn't call it a computer either, though some people do: it was a machine specifically for breaking the "Fish" ciphers, although by 1945 the programming had become very sophisticated and flexible.
Behind these confusions there lies a basic disagreement about whether the computer should be placed in a list of physical objects — basically the hardware engineers' viewpoint — or whether it it belongs to the history of logical, mathematical and scientific ideas, as logicians, mathematicians and software engineers would see it.
I follow the second viewpoint: the essential point of the stored-program computer is that it is built to implement a logical idea, Turing's idea: the Universal Turing machine of 1936.

 Computer Stupidities
It's a baffling phenomenon that in today's society an individual, who might in other circumstances be considered smart and wise, can sit down in front of a computer screen and instantly lose every last shred of common sense he ever possessed.
Complicate this phenomenon with a case of "computerphobia," and you end up with tech support personnel having phone conversations that are funny in retrospect but seem like perfectly valid motives for wild machine gun shooting sprees at the time.
But reason, common sense, and experience tell me that if you sit someone who isn't computer literate (even a smart someone) down in front of a computer, you're bound to accrue anecdotes no less outrageous than these.
