The Computer Gets Personal

  • Ian Watson

Abstract

It’s January 22 1984 and you are watching the Super Bowl on TV. A commercial break is taking place during a stoppage in play. Commercial spots in the Super Bowl are the prime advertising slots of the year; when carmakers unveil their new models. A commercial starts; it’s very high quality, more like a movie trailer than a normal TV commercial.
