Back in 1976, microprocessors had a maximum of 8.5K transistors for 64bits of memory. The Queen of England sent her first email, and Steve Wozniak designed the Apple I. in 1984, 8 years later, I was programing Cobol on a DPS6000.

Program (we did not say code at this time), compile, wait. Correct, compile, wait. Print? Wait first…

Star Trek TJ Hooker William Shatner made this film for AT&T about the future of microprocessors. Enjoy!
