I was talking to one of my friends on skype, And he was talking about his "internet skills"
So I told him he was sounding stupid and that I knew more about "Computers"

And so he responded like this.

I mean he is technically correct, but a computer can operate without internet, the internet is pretty useless without some form of computer (I count switching devices since they have basic compute on the device, etc).

 

Your friend may be smart in a different way...

He was trying to say that the internet is something not related to Computers. Like not having anything to do with each other.

Well, in that case, you should see if he wants to learn why the internet IS computers.

Well these days everything is a "computer". The definition of computers is relatively broad and covers a LOT of things. Consoles, smartphone, smartwatches, PC, your toaster oven, etc... They can all be considered "computers" because they all have a central processing unit and some form of memory.

 

In this case, while the internet needs "computers"(servers) in the backhand to exist, these servers aren't limited to x86, they can be ARM based or something else entirely.

 

So really, while he's not right, he's also not wrong. They are different, yet at the same time they are the same. But saying they are one and the same is like saying a console is a PC. It technically is, but it's not.

etymologically "computer" is a device used to calculate, there are even analog computers, so technically and historically a computer doesn't even need a CPU or RAM. ;)

You can know a lot of things about computers, how to make an über-PC with 4 GPU, overclocked with liquid nitrogen and for only a dime but have no clue how networks work.

 

On the other side, you can be someone who can develop and code your own exploits or read wireshark logs like a newspaper and can't mount your own PC or know the differences between crossfire and SLI.

 

In a sense, yes, they can be totally different things.

Computers connect to the internet so.... mind-blow!

Which is just a series of computers. When you connect to the Internet, you become part of its infrastructure.

I'm very active compared to most of the other mods, so you might see me pop up a fair bit.

HAH! That'll generally just be a direct warning point or banning, there's very little public shaming for doing something stupid unless you're the OP and they're explaining rules.

computers and the internet are two different things, sure. 

however, the internet is really just a bunch of interconnected computers. 

saying youre good with the internet probably means the software side od things. where as being good with a computer people relate as physically hardware associated, and while not wrong, iften also should mean software.
