BACK TO OUR ROOTS! For anyone who owns a computer and appreciates how far we've come with the Internet and all, this movie is a MUST!
It's fascinating material about the history of Apple and Microsoft too.
And if you love Silicon Valley, you might want to try a young adult book that's geared towards adults, too: THE TOONIES INVADE SILICON VALLEY. It's part satire, and stars Steve Wozniak romping around the VALLEY with the TOONIES who escape from the computer (WHERE ELSE!), helping the good TOONIES capture the bad ones who have taken over ORANGE Computer Co. A fun romp with a lot of action and a lot of humor.

Hahaha, Woopy, you are a funny man! Not that kind of pirate, just the kind who sabotage beginning computer companies... LOL... I tooted my own horn in this one by bragging about my Toonies book, but so what if Ammie fires me? The pay is lousy there anyway. :-) Thx. for visiting, cutie. xo
