In 1982, Time picked not a man, but a machine: the computer.
In its story about the pick, the magazine quoted an ad that attempted to answer the question:
- “Will someone please tell me what a personal computer can do?”
- “A personal computer, it says, can send letters at the speed of light, diagnose a sick poodle, custom-tailor an insurance program in minutes, test recipes for beer.“
We wonder what will come next!
What about you?
