Just like 640Kb RAM, this should be enough for anyone:

Cooling,intercooling,inclination,ride height,brake cooling,tire cooling,high-speed braking,and downforce,all managed by sensors,cpu,and some sort of actuator,solenoid,pump,or valve.
Hahaha! I meant "lift reduction"... Not life reduction.

I grew up on 576k.

My friends insisted I was a liar.

it's a plausible number. 576/8 equals 72.

I remember the 64k and 128k Commodore desktops, before the original Apple Macintosh. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64

I entered the world of software development in 1980, mostly Apple ][.

I hear the Amiga is coming back. I can't find the story about a Commodore 64 emulator built into a Commodore 63 mouse. This is the closest I can find at the moment:

I learned to walk in 1980. I search for "Commodore 63" and got this: https://www.engadget.com/2017/09/29/...eases-in-2018/

We had a TI99/4A and my parents bought an XT in 1989. I learned some programming a year or two after that. It was weird to read the Wikipedia article on the C64, in 1989 it was mostly dead, but it was the major home computer for a few years?

Also, Commodore ruthlessly killed the TI99/4A, because apparently Commodore tried to sell calculators in the 1970s, and TI shut them down.

TI has sold the same calculators for ten or twenty years.

For the same price.

It sounds like as popular as the C64 was, and they sold it for nearly 15 years, nothing else they sold really caught on. When they stopped selling that, they went out of business.

Strangely, Wikipedia did not mention PCs until 1987, when they dominated.

That may be what I was thinking about. $70? Impervious to Meltdown/Spectre?

The early history of the personal computer was dog-eat-dog. Osborne famously killed his own company by pre-announcing his next model and killing demand for his current one.

And of course a lot of good ideas had to die because they stood in Microsoft's way.

Isn't it interesting that when Page and Brinn came up with Google, Eric Schmitt was brought in as 'adult supervision' (per WiReD) and yet he imploded completely on 20171221.

Original TRASH-80's came with 16K...upgrade-able to 64K...and Bill Gate's comment "...why'd you ever need more than 640K of RAM?"

Sorry for being all nerdy:

640K.

Misquoted.
