Some important commuting innovations that have shaped the world over the past 30 years include MRI Scans, Email, and Office Software such as Microsoft Excel
3 Computing Innovations
General Purpose or Function: The scan uses a
strong magnetic field and radio waves to
generate images of arts of the body that can't
be seen as well with X-rays,CT scans or
ultrasound. MRI is also used to examine
internal body structures and diagnose a
variety of disorders, such as strokes, tumors,
aneurysms, spinal cord injuries,multiple
sclerosis and eye or inner ear problems,
according to the Mayo Clinic.
" While prices do vary
depending on the part of the
body receiving the MRI scan, cost
is most greatly influenced by
geographic location as well as the
facility. In general, MRIs range in
cost from $400 to $3,500."

Positive: An MRI scanner can be used to take images of any part of the body (e.g., head, joints, abdomen, legs, etc.), in any imaging direction. MRI provides better soft tissue contrast than CT and can differentiate better between fat, water, muscle, and other soft tissue than CT (CT is usually better at imaging bones). These images provide information to physicians and can be useful in diagnosing a wide variety of diseases and conditions.
Negative: Most concerns about M.R.I.s involve people with metal, such as shrapnel, embedded in their bodies, or someone with an implanted medical device, like a cochlear implant or an older pacemaker. The imaging system’s strong magnetic field can slightly shift or heat up embedded metal and disrupt the activities of medical devices.

Creator: Ray Tomlinson, but Shiva Ayyadurai made what we use today
"Email is a computerized system for sending digital messages from one computer to one or more other computers."
"The benefit of email is that it provides people with standard, archived, one-to-many electronic communication. Standard means that it is based on an international standard, SMTP , so that email send from any email client application in any language anywhere in the world will be delivered to any other email client." It is also easier and faster to use."
"One harmful effect of email is the ease at which it can be mis-used in ways such as spamming. Spamming can harm communication by clouding worthy communication with a vast amount of unwanted communication (also security)"

Office Software- Microsoft Excel
"Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program. That means it's used to create grids of text, numbers and formulas specifying calculations. That's extremely valuable for many businesses, which use it to record expenditures and income, plan budgets, chart data and succinctly present fiscal results."
"Excel allows business users to unlock the potential of their data, by using formulas across a grid of cells, uses conditional formatting, helps identify trends, and brings data together online."
"There’s nothing inherently wrong with spreadsheets; they’re excellent tools for many different jobs. But data visualization and data communication is not one of them." (There isn’t much ability to “share” documents)
