100 years of IBM - that's worth to mention.

Without IBM, many inventions were missing, you can see a short overview at Youtube:

You can also see a longer film about IBMs last 100 years here:

There is also a famous TV spot shown in the Eighties, do you still remember their own version of Charlie Chaplin ?


It started all with two companies:
C-T-R Computer Tabulating Recording Company
and
Powers Accounting Machine Co.
in 1911.
Interesting, the company "IBM" (International Business Machines) was founded 13 years later, in 1924.
