We are in the 1970’s, and we’re seeing the beginnings of the computer revolution in the workplace. This is the time when computers and the internet are beginning to replace the telephone and typewriter, but it will be the middle of the century before the computer is as ubiquitous as it is now. The computer era has been so pervasive in American life that many people have never even considered the possibility that computers wouldn’t be ubiquitous in their lives.
Computer use in the 1980s was largely limited to the workplace, so people didnt really think about the future of the computer, but most of the early 1980s computer companies were run by upper-middle class guys who were making very little money because they focused on making the best products for their customers. It was this mentality that kept the computer companies from taking off.
People who were not interested in computers in the 1980s, as these guys were, but still wanted to use computers in their lives, wanted to buy computers. Computer companies were really just trying to make a good product for themselves, and many of the best ones made things for themselves.
The story of the computer companies was one of the most interesting of the 1980s, for all the good and bad that went down. The story of the computer companies was told in the “Computer Chronicles” books by George Mason University professor Bill Gates, who was the inventor of the company that invented the first commercial computer. He was also the president of the company that put computers in classrooms, and he wrote the books about it.
Bill Gates was a good man and a good businessman, and he was very popular in the 1980s. But his story also shows that there was no one company that invented the computer that could claim the title “first” or “best.” His story is a story about how the computer industry didn’t invent anything. It’s a story about how the companies were created. It’s a story of the companies that were created, and how they came up with the products that they invented.
Gates was a great man. He had his faults but he was a very good man.
I have great memories of my childhood and youth in the 1980s. I remember the great products. I remember the great technology. I remember the companies that created the products that I used. For me, the computer is a part of that history. I remember the computers and the computer companies. I remember the good and the bad. Its almost like the computers invented me.
In the olden days, the word computing was a dirty word. It was a dirty word and it should have been. Computers did everything computers do. They came down in size, they came down in price, they came down in power, they came down in speed, and they were easy to use. They made things easier and more comfortable. You didn’t have to know how to use a mouse or a keyboard to do anything on a computer.
Computers changed all that. Today’s computers are so tiny that they are essentially invisible, so you can easily forget to plug them in and forget them are even there. But back then, you had to put your computer into the wall socket. A computer was so small that it fit in the palm of your hand. The word computing came from the Old English word for the “needle”. The computer was the workhorse of the world.
I use computers in my daily life, but I never understood computers until I got to college. I remember using our local library to check out books and magazines. I remember being fascinated by how computers and science fiction movies were so revolutionary at the time. I was even more fascinated by how it all worked. The idea of plugging your computer into the wall socket, then being able to use the keyboard and mouse on it made me understand the true power of computers.
