    Ada Lovelace was he first computer programmer.

    Herman Hollerith developed a mechanical tabulator based on punched cards in order to rapidly tabulate statistics from millions of pieces of data. He was the founder of the company that became IBM.

    Vannevar Bush constructed a Differential Analyzer, an analog computer that could solve differential equations with as many as 18 independent variables

    Douglas EngelBart is best known for inventing the computer mouse. His team developed hypertext, networked computers, and precursors to GUIs; and as a committed and vocal proponent of the development and use of computers and networks to help cope with the world’s increasingly urgent and complex problems.

    I think Ada Lovelace was the first programmer, who worked on Charles Babbage's analytic machine. Steve Jobs created the brand Apple, in which he created Mac, one of the most popular operating systems. I know the other people but I don't remember there contributions exactly. Its not that hard to find information on them though. Look it up.
