Fantastic new American-made giveaway coming tomorrow. Get excited!!!

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Well this break between giveaways has been longer than expected! I should have a few lined up within the next few weeks though. Thanks for your patience!

In the mean time, here is a great link I've found recently for Artifical Christmas Trees - 100% Made in USA, and they're on sale!

The history of computers through American innovation:

Burroughs Computer
The Story: The computer revolution began in the late 19th century when a bank clerk named William Seward Burroughs grew weary of calculating by hand. To free up his time, he invented the first practical adding and listing machine. He co-founded a company in St. Louis in 1886 to sell the machines, which proved popular with businessmen. The company built a powerful memory system for the first electronic digital computer, Eniac, in 1945. It then moved on to build computers for the private sector.

Recipe for Success: Innovation was Burroughs' key to success. For example, in 1961 the company unveiled a completely unprecedented computer called the Burroughs B5000. In the past, programmers had to write in extremely complex coded language; it took them months to write a single, relatively simple program. The B5000 allowed them to write in plain English and mathematical equations. It was also the first computer to handle several programs simultaneously.

The Burroughs B5000 wasn't cheap; the model sold for anywhere from $540,000 to $2 million.
Eniac, the world's first electronic digital computer, weighed 30 tons and filled an entire room. Its first assignment was to build a hydrogen bomb.
The Burroughs B-205 was a popular model that was frequently featured in science fiction films and television shows in the 1960s, including "Lost In Space" and the "Batman" series.
