Ancient Greek computer found

There has been much discussion about a 2100 year-old device found in a shipwreck near Greece nearly a century ago that scientists now believe was an early computer.

The ancient computer could accurately predict the location of the heavenly bodies on a given day and identify when solar eclipses would occur.

Despite these capabilities, archaeologists believe that the device was mostly used to download porn.

HA!

I saw a Discovery Channel story on that a couple months ago, and I'm recalling it as I read your post. I get to the punch line, and I --just for a second, mind you--think: "I don't remember the show reporting that..."

HA! Great one.
