Actually I bought an IBM computer that lasted me nine years, so I can't complain.

I love this trivia section. Please keep doing it if you can find time. I promise never to use GOogle or anything to look up the answers.

.
I recently read that "HAL" is an acronym for "Heuristically programmed algorithmic computer"

International Business Machines. It's funny, most folks don't think of computers as machines, but that is all they are.

Officially, "International Business Machine."

According to long term employees, "I've Been Moved."
