Small Size, Big Popularity

Small Size, Big Popularity (1980 - 1989)


The first hard disk is created in 1980 which revolutionized computers. We would not have computers the way they are now without this invention. SEAGATE technology is the one who brought the hard disk onto the computer scene. IBM took the personal computer term and made a computer out of it with the IBM PC in 1981. Adam Osborne created the first portable computer in the same year. Also, the floppy disk took a leap to 3.5 inches. In 1982, the greatest selling computer, according the the Guinness Book of World Records in 2006, was released to the public. The Commodore 64 was the computer flying off the shelves in 1982. The Compaq company had the first personal computer close and made $111 million.

Apple launched the Macintosh operating system in 1984. It was mouse driven and introduced WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) to the computer world. For the people who know what it is, C++ emerged in 1985. The other thing that came out in 1985 is something everyone knows about – the internet. Motorola focused not on computer but on microprocessors in 1987 and came out with the 68030 microprocessor. IBM also released the IBM PS/2. Something worth mentioning about the year 1988 that is hard to believe nowadays, Steve Jobs left the Apple company. Another computer game introduced to the public was SimCity. Virtual Reality is also a topic that is brought up in 1989.
