By: Alec Mery, Joshua Shostak, Alex Odisho, Schaefer Warn, Shamsa Ali, Julia Christie


Dear Codey: What is the difference between the computers of today versus the computers of the past? – Anonimouse

Dear Anonimouse, the biggest difference between the computers of today and the computers then, is mostly the size, power, and actual technology that goes into making one.


Dear Codey:I have a brother with a disability, and I was wondering what if any are the options that people with disabilities have and how easily are they accessed? – Bagelboy22

Dear Bagelboy22, thanks to many different companies, schools can give out computers to those in need. They usually have built in software that allows for accommodation for those with a disability so your brother can play away!


Dear Codey: As an older man from another time, the prices of computers when I was a kid seemed like only the rich kids could get one, and now having some money saved up I was wondering what are the prices back then versus now? – Oldtechy54

Dear Oldtechy54, the prices now are not comparable to then, because of rapidly changing hardware that goes into newer computers they often have better performance than back then.


Dear Codey: As a new student at U.W. I have heard the acronym TCAT, and I was wondering what it was and what is it for? – FreddyG

Dear FreddyG, that is UW’s accessibility program, Taskar Center for Accessible Technology. They help give people with disabilities access to computers, and the ability to use them just as well as anyone.


Dear Codey: As someone who just got done with their education in the technologies what is the expected income per year from a job in te technologies? – Masterman112

Dear Masterman112, the amount of money made per year depends on your experience, education, company, and ability. Anywhere from $50,000 to $2.5 million per year.


Dear Codey: As someone who has been given a promotion and has to move into the Silicon Valley area from the Boston area what are the housing costs? – Redsockfan

Dear Redsockfan, housing costs in those areas are naturally high, because of demand for personal space. They’ll usually hover around $100,000 to $2.3 million. As this is a big leap for you on the other side of the country, jobs around there also pay much more than that of most places.


Dear Codey: As an instructor in a rural town, I’m concerned about access to tech from people without the means? What's their future look like? – Proffessorteach

Dear Professorteach, technology is an expensive part of life, but many companies including google plan to bring technology to those around the world who would otherwise have no access to it. Their future looks bright not only with their faces, but with their computer screens.
