    The Z3 was an early computer built by Konrad Zuse in 1941.
    I chose this event because it was one of the first computer built in the 1940s. They did not have much technology back then.. This was successful.

  • IBMs 7000 Mainframes

    IBMs 7000 Mainframes
    IBMs 7000 Mainframes were the companys first transistorized computers. These were fast & worked very well.
    I chose this because I thought it was cool that it was their first computer & it was already working correctly & it was also fast.
  • Data general corpooration

    Data general corpooration
    This started a group of engineers that left with 32 Kiilobites of memory for $8,000.
    I chose this because its interesting how they left with all of that memory & it was worth so much.
  • The TV typewriter

    The TV typewriter
    The TV typewriter was designed by Don Lanster. This device could keep & store 512 as 16 lines with 32 characters each. A 90 minute tape would be about 100 pages of text.
