HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, November 24, 2009 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE DIGITAL WORLD Centuries old PAINT IT BLACK Inside and out NEW WAVE Technology WATER WISE Sink savers Fun with numbers Pauline Priest Fun with numbers I'd often wondered why we use digital in the mix with technology. The word digital comes from the same source as digitus (Latin for finger), as fingers are used for discrete counting. The word digital is mostly used in computing and electronics, especially where information is converted to binary numeric form, as in digital audio. A digital system is a data technology that uses discrete (discontinuous) values. Non- digital (analog) systems use a continuous range of values to represent information. Although digital signals are associated with electronics, digital systems are ancient. Take the abacus. Created between 1000 BC and 500 BC, it became a form of calculator. Now it can be used as an advanced, yet basic, digital calculator that uses beads on rows to represent numbers. So, digital technology has been with us for a long, long time.
