Craig's Muggley Things

Hello again all my fellow wizards and witches, and welcome to this week's edition of Craig's Muggley Things. With the one and only CRAIGIE!!!!!! :D

This week:



What are these strange muggle contraptions known as 'computers'? Well my friend, let me tell you. These amazing devices are able to store and access information which you can view on another device called a monitor.

A picture of what a typical desktop computer looks like

In order to access the information you need a mouse, which controls a cursor on the graphical interface on the monitor with left and right buttons to access said information, and a keyboard which let's you enter information. There are many types of computers such as smartphones, game consoles, smart tvs, laptops etc. but the one I have described above is known as a desktop computer.

An example of what a graphical interface may look like. It contains icons to help you access information more easily.

So what you all think of these computers? Do you think the ministry should let us have ones powered by magic? Or should they stay in the muggle world?

Til next time folks :D
