I think it would be awful. Students would have to end up in library's for research, communication would have to be from phones and letters only.

First of all, what does this comment have to do with how life would be without computers?

Anyways, without computers, I'd probably just spend much, much, much more time in the libraries during research papers. And I'd probably be addicted to the television ( ) or at the opposite spectrum, I'd probably hang out at the mall much more with my friends. There probably would only be CDs for me to listen to so my musical taste as well as wallet would definitely suffer. etc. Basically, my life would be a little more difficult.

it would be alot safer. example safe from identity theft, ppls lives wouldnt be intruded on (hacking). u would also see libraries crammed in order for ppl to get research done.

by "computers" I'm assuming you have the modern computer in mind. That is, the digital computer.

As Ned Block notes, we could make a computer out of an "elaborate system of cats and mice and cheese and make our gates in such as way that the cat will strain at the leash and pull open a gate which we can also treat as if it were a 0 or 1." (Searle)

So really it was inevitable. Let me tell you many historians dislike these kinds of questions -- what ifs. I don't bother to think about them myself. Though, one could come up with a list of things of how it would be diffrent if the digital computer were not invented, such as, accounting would be much more troublesome, and so on.
