CW@50: March editions of Computer Weekly
We search back through the Computer Weekly archives held at The National Museum of Computing to present what was happening in IT over the last five decades.
In this edition we present the March issues of Computer Weekly. Highlights include:
- How, in 1967, computers were used to simulate the Apollo 11 moon landing.
- A US firm starts shipping point of sale systems in the UK in 1972 that record the right price based on the number of each item purchased or its weight.
- A prediction in 1980 that new risk capital and joint ventures will create a flourishing robot manufacturing industry in the UK within the next few years.
