I know this is kind of counterintuitive that I am skipping from Binary to Computer Hardware, without giving much of an insight into binary, but that would be boring if I did that and I’m not writing a textbook for God’s sake. Instead, I want you to understand computers. So, let’s get into the some basic hardware.
