The anniversary of the Apple computer – from NPR

On Apple’s Birthday, NPR has a great history of the computer and its components, like the mouse and the integrated circuit.  How far we have come!  I can still remember being taken as a class trip to the local Toronto headquarters of IBM in about 1957 and being shown a room-sized computer.  It didn’t make a great impression as we just sat there and so did the computer.  No bells and whistles, no lights and flashes, just a big box and some boring speeches.  Not much to impress a 10-year-old.
