PlayStation Beats Personal Computer

An extensive survey of over 30,000 votes were cast by the UK's largest men's lifestyle website, AskMen.com, to find just what are the most important innovations in the modern world.

The overall winner was, unsurprisingly, the Internet. Invented by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the Internet transmitted it's first successful communication in 1990.

That logo was like a promise of amazing games ever since the PS1 came out...

The Internet was created in the United States by UCLA Professor Leonard Kleinrock and the DARPA department (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) back in the 1960's to help quickly and securely share data from Government research projects.

At first it was called the ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network) which later on down the road became the "Internet" once a commercial version was released.

1990 Sir Tim Berners-Lee came up with the World Wide Web (WWW.) as a more sound way to manage the Internet's information data base by creating the Hyper Text Termination protocols (HTTP)

Sir Tim Birners-Lee didn't create the Internet he just made managing the Info better. DARPA and Leonard Kleinrock created the Internet by inventing the Packet Switching Network.....The Internet!!

any PC Geek knows this!

P.S. Al Gore didn't invent the Internet either.

P.S.S Yes Metal Gear Solid Fans "DARPA" is REAL and now so are Zombies!!

TekoIie2242d ago

yeh but the zombies dead... Thank god though on a serious note :/

Shikoro2242d ago

HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol, not Termination Protocol. Just saying...

Denethor_II2242d ago

Sir Tim 'BERNERS' (not Birners) invented the World Wide Web, or as you put it 'just managed it better lol, and the Hypertext 'TRANSFER' Protocol (not termination). What you and I are using to type these messages was thanks to Sir Tim Berners.
No need to be so bum hurt about it:)

Yeah, this is an argument over semantics. It's like saying cavemen invented cars because they invented wheels. Ford only put them to better use. We could even say that Bell invented the Internet because he invented phones, and we used those first. Or was it the telegraph guy that invented the Internet because he came up with sending information over a wire?

See how stupid we can get?

The title sounds like a Rock, Paper, Scissors hybrid.

Those 360 fanboys must've been here

DivineAssault 2242d ago

yup.. They hate the truth that PlayStation rules! They hate that 360 has no new IPs & they have to pay annually to play shooters.. They hate that theyre not getting Last of Us, God of War, FFXV, & many MANY more great games.. They hate that E3 this year will be no different for them as they last 6 years except with more aliens & guns games with a useless camera

What does the original PlayStation have to do with "360 fanboys"? I'm sure a lot of current-day 360 fanboys gamed on the PlayStation, even the PS2. It was the original PlayStation, which deserves this recognition, that people voted for, not the PS3 (obviously). How can you possibly turn this into another 360 vs. PS3 console war?

TheLyonKing2242d ago

Well done to sony.

Things like life - which contributes the ps3 extra processing power to help cure diseases is truly amazing.
Games and multimedia functionality really makes the ps3 a great peice of hardware for the house but before the ps3 the ps1 and 2 were a sign of amazing quality and games and defined the 90's and early 2000's and where gaming was going.

1Victor2242d ago

Oh wow that was unexpected but well received and deserved.now I wonder what the results would be for a world wide survey by maybe men health magazine

Ducky2242d ago

... and they were both beaten by Twitter which was voted as #2 overall.

DeadSpaced2242d ago

Now that's just pitiful.
