I recently published Computer Chronicles Revisited, Volume 6. This ebook is part of my ongoing blog project, Computer Chronicles Revisited, which reviews the people, products, and companies featured on the PBS series that aired from 1983 to 2002. In this volume I primarily cover the first half of the show’s fifth season, which ran from October 1987 to January 1988.
Some of the topics covered in this volume include:
- The launch of Apple’s HyperCard
- The fall 1987 COMDEX trade show
- A two-part look at computer games from Electronic Arts and Activision
- The first laser printers available for under $2,000
- A previously “lost” Computer Chronicles episode that was recently recovered
