Emergence of Email & Apple

Emergence of Email & Apple (1970 - 1979)


  • The first year in this decade introduced the first automated teller machine which we now commonly know as the ATM. Networking also becomes a lot more important and used during this year. In 1971, the first personal computer is introduced. John Blakenbaker invented the Kenbak-1. Also in this year, the 8 inch floppy disk is introduced. 

    One of the most important things in computer history also happened. Ray Tomlinson sent the first email and was the person who came up with the “at” symbol (@). The first computer game that revolutionized the gaming industry came out in 1972. The two sticks and ball that changed was called Pong. Also in '72, the HP-35 came out. The Ethernet was invented in 1973 and so was the Micral. The Micral was a personal computer that used a microprocessor. The first workstation with a built-in mouse was built by the Xerox company in 1974. Although there was a mic computer the year before, the SCELBI was the first commercial computer based on a microprocessor. We know it now mostly as PC, is personal computer. The term personal computer was coined in 1975 with the computer Altair 8800. 

    In 1976, Steve Wozniak introduced Apple to the world with the Apple I. The next year he came out with the Apple II. 1978 had an upgrade from something that was invented before. The floppy disk was brought down to 5.25 inches. The year after, the computers Atari 400 and 800 came out which were made for gaming and started the gaming console revolution.
