If you have a computer in your home, you have most likely played at least one online game. Maybe you like solitaire or you are more apt to search out one of the many bingo sites that are online. The way we play games has come so far in the past few years, and it is still amazing. Years ago people would go to the bingo hall and spend a few hours in a loud, smoke-filled room playing five or six cards at a time. Times are definitely changing. In the past 15 to 20 years, those bingo halls are only an option. Online bingo sites can give you all the fun and let you win real money!
What has made these online games such a huge trend? Something called Moore’s Law, which was a forecast by Gordon Moore. It was an amount of transistors on a microchip that would double periodically. This means that over a period of years, more information would be able to be received and sent faster and faster as the years went on.
Think back to when the computer and the Internet were at its newest. Different gaming sites and bingo sites would take forever to load. Some games took longer to load than it did to play. Now, because of Moore’s Law, these same sites load almost instantaneously. Technology has grown to such a capacity that you can even play more than one game at a time on a single computing system.
Because software relies directly on the hardware of your computer, the more power your hardware is, the more software (or games) your computer will be able to process and will be able to do this in a much shorter period of time.
Next time you play bingo on your online bingo site, sit back and think a bit about the history of the computer and how far technology has come in such a short period of time.
