What is Computer Memory :
Its like a human brain. The computer memory is a the storage place. It holds the data and instructions that the Central Processing Unit (CPU) needs. Before a program can be control, the program is loaded from some storage medium into the memory. The memory is divided into large number of small parts called cells.

In the early 1940s, memory technology mostly permitted a capacity of a few bytes. The first electronic programmable digital computer, the ENIAC, using thousands of octal-base radio vacuum tubes, could perform simple calculations involving 20 numbers of ten decimal digits which were held in the vacuum tube accumulators.

Efforts began in the late 1940s to find non-volatile memory. Jay Forrester, Jan A. Rajchman and An Wang developed magnetic core memory, which allowed for recall of memory after power loss. Magnetic core memory would become the dominant form of memory until the development of transistor-based memory in the late 1960s.
