Question ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

I have just catched both .com and .net of ЭВМ which I believe is mean Computer in Russian.
I have got many thoughs all from Natives who confirmed the translation is right, some see it's no more used in the modern language while others see it's still used.
take a look here, it's a Russian dictionary which shows the word as being used as well as Computer in today's language:
http://www.google.com/translate?u=ht...&hl=en&ie=UTF8

I have some native opinions out the forum who confirmed this as Computer, and here is a quote of INDers:

It's not really used to mean computers in modern language and has a connotation of something obsolete or historical. But I see it has good stats which are growing. When people mention ЭВМ - they normally refer to old computers that are not in use any longer - but are representative of an essential, historical step, period in information technology.

Nevertheless, the word is known practically to every Russian speaker, and I'm sure it'll make money from parking and can be sold at very attractive price.

Congratulations!

and see that the word is used in scientific circles and means all Electronic Calculating Machines including personal computers, large computers etc. So, although the word itself is a bit "academic" - it's a name of a wide range of electronic machnines that include analog and digital computers.

Again, a very good catch - congratulations!

But I think this is obsolete abbr... It was used at the begining of computers.

Now it is mostly used in historical context and no commercial sense I think. Try wordstat.yandex.ru - there are "эвм history", "computer creator" and so on...

It is good word, but to use in museum
Now, any confirmation, correction, appraisal is very appreciated
* Many thanks to you RussianDomainer and Ajiotaj, a lot of thanks

Re: ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

May be I just didn't sow commercial sense... A word is good. But again - in museum use.

Re: ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

thanks a lot everybody for your help, I just wanted to know why people in Russia continue to search the term in Yandex in a high volume unless it's still used and NOT a museum one?

Re: ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

Yandex can give you some hints.

http://wordstat.yandex.ru/advq?rpt=p...F1%E5&regions=

People still search for "ссср" too.

Re: ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

It is Russian for IBM. At one time all computers were IBM. Might still be of interest to Big Blue!

More like "EVM" as in электронных вычислительных машин.

Re: ЭВМ.com Computer.com?

IBM stands for International Business Machines.
ЭВМ stands for Электронная вычислительная машина (electronic calculating machine).
Different meanings.
