Let Your Computer do the Talking and the Listening

  • William Pearson
Part of the M.D. Computing: Benchmark Papers book series (MD COMPUTING)


Today, your personal computer and your telephone make a mighty pair. You can use the two to search the scientific literature as it is stored on the giant bibliographic systems (see M.D. COMPUTING issue 0), review national financial data, or capture the stock market ticker tape (and automatically save selected data for charting stocks). You can also exchange programs with amateur computerists on a national network or connect your computer to a neighbor’s to transfer files or programs or simply dial up your office computer from your home.
