If computers never existed, what do think you would be doing?
I probably would have done more drawing and writing, because I was good and would have made even more creations. I would probably be wanting to be a teacher or an artist.

No one can answer this, because we have become so engulfed into the computer world that it's almost impossible to think what life would be like without it.

If they had never been invented we would be none the wiser. To ask what would we do if they weren't invented is a question is difficult to answer since they have been invented!

Wow this is such a great question...
If computers had never been created then none of us would be where we are today because, computers are so much more than pc's, Macs (which would be included in this group unless Macs were invented but not pc's) or portable devices. Essentially all of these devices are a type of electronic device with circuitry, silicone chips, diodes, capacitors along with many other conductors & parts.
Computers are in cars washing machines and so many things, that life would truly be different as things would not progress so rapidly and people would have to think more or at least in a different way than they do now.
Where does this question end though are there vacuum tubes?... Circuits?... Any electronic type devices at all?
This is almost impossible to ask but something we can all ponder.
Letâ€™s ask this question on a larger scale and see what more people think of this beyond this community. Also what about a movie something along the lines of â€œWhere would we be seriesâ€ a series on TV shows of where we would be & how we would do things differently Hollywood could make this but should they make it with out the aid of computers also?
This opens us up to many more questions.
decimic, I am jealous that I did not think of such a great question. :-)

Computers would've been invented sooner or later. Think about the first man. If he never understood how to use the bathroom, does it mean that we wouldn't understand it later on (if it didn't kill us first)?

Good old fashioned paper & pencil, slide ruler, and my brain. I'd do just fine. Just an old school techie.
Some events in the past would have to be erased for computers to not exist in our time.
1642 Blaise Pascal invents the world's first automatic calculating machine. Called the Pascaline, it can add and subtract.
