The keyboard on your computer owes a lot to Christopher Sholes and Carlos Glidden. They patented the first practical typewriter on this day in 1868 — which led to many famous brand names such as Smith-Corona, Remington Rand and Underwood. The need for skilled typists allowed many women to first enter the world of professional business.

About 90 percent of classrooms have computers — and more than 80 percent have Internet access.
