Fire in the Valley - the making of the personal computer; updated edition 2000
 Picture
Publisher: Osborne/McGraw-Hill, 1984, isbn 0881341215, 288 pages, black and white photographs, index.
Very Good, large thick softcover, slight edgewear, binding is secure and tight, pages clean, unmarked. A nice copy of this

In January 1975, Popular Electronics magazine published a cover story on the Altair, an odd metal box with switches and blinking lights that proved to be the progenitor of today's personal computer. Inspired by possibilities that the leaders of the electronics and mainframe computer industries couldn't see, unlikely entrepreneurs -- hippies, dropouts, phone phreaks, and electronics hobbyists -- seized the opportunity... This updated edition features interviews with the major players, new chapters, dozens of new photos, and updates throughout, that carry the story forward into the Internet era... (from the rear cover)

NOTE that this is the later expanded edition published in 2000, which is about 3 times the thickness of the original edition

Includes, The voyage to Altair, miracle makers, Homebrew, software factor, retailing the revolution, big companies, and MORE mb9

Johnson, E. R. Fenimore  
His Master's Voice Was Edlridge R. Johnson: A Biography
 Picture
Publisher: State Media, Inc., 1974 Milford, DE.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "My father, Eldridge Reeves Johnson, was one of the industrialists who played a substantial part in the building up of the prosperity of this country to the point where it has become the envy of the world. That in itself was a commonplace event in the late 19th and 20th centuries. In itself it is not a sufficiently outstanding performance to warrant remembering any one man beyond the many who participated in our national growth. My father was not the inventor of the talking machine. He was always quick to give the credit to Thomas A. Edison, to whom that honor solely belongs. My father was the inventor of many improvements of the basic device but there were many other talking machine inventors of equal importance, especially Emil Berliner. My reason for regarding my father as deserving to be remembered is that he is the one man who by personal greatness halted the petty quarrels which were retarding the progress of the newborn industry, and then by his inventive and business genius made it possible for the first time in the world's history for good music to be heard in even the most humble home. In this day in which music is heard everywhere at any time we have no conception of how little music entered into the life of the average person only one hundred years ago. Soon after he founded the Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey, talking machines made their way all over the world. Travellers encountered them from the Eskimos' arctic igloos to the thatched huts of the tropics. They became fixtures in all classes of homes. They were almost invariably a feature of the plush parlors of the rich and the great. Seventy-five percent of these pleasure-giving machines bore the 'His Master's Voice' dog and talking machine trade mark which my father, in his wisdom, made famous by placing it on products of only the very finest quality. The secret of his success was a quality product sold always at a fair price. For this feat of putting 'The Gift That Keeps on Giving' into the homes of the common man, I believe that Eldridge Reeves Johnson should not be forgotten." Illustrated with photographs. viii + 179 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

336 p. : illus., index, 24 cm. "In January 2000, America Online and Time Warner announced the largest merger in U.S. history, a deal that would create the biggest media company in the world. It was celebrated as the marriage of new media and old media, a potent combination of the nation's No. 1 Internet company and the country's leading entertainment giant, the owner of such internationally renowned brands as Warner Bros., HBO, CNN, and Time magazine.

How did the deal of the century become an epic disaster?" Stock# 42,538. Fine / dj fine.
