Operation Thinking Cap (Dec, 1954)

Operation Thinking Cap

It takes more than a slide rule alone, these days, to perform the computations necessary for scientific problems such as those encountered in atmospheric research. The scientist of today, equipped with modern data-gathering devices, is faced with a stupendous data-reduction task which requires extremely high speed computation. That’s why the Univac Scientific electronic computing system (formerly known as the ERA 1103) has proven to be invaluable to scientists and engineers alike.

When I was kid I had a subscription where I would get disks full of software from MECC every month. I loved their stuff.

“31,000 student hours later, we still love Apple Computer”

- Dr. Kenneth Brumbaugh. Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium

When the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium recommended Apple Computer to the state’s school districts—well, it started something big.

Today there are hundreds of Apple Computers in use in 35% of Minnesota’s elementary and secondary schools, and nearly all of the colleges and universities in the state. Most communicate with the Consortium’s CYBER 73 mainframe in a state-wide educational computer network.

The five dumbest products in America. (Sep, 1977)

The five dumbest products in America.

There they sit.

Five products with no intelligence whatever.

And you can’t blame the people who made them. Because until now, nobody had the technology to make these products actually think.

So we’ve had cars that can only respond to their drivers’ commands, while they charge inefficiently on.
