Japanese pop culture icon Hello Kitty celebrates her 35th birthday in 2009. And Sanrio has released a video of its design history over the years for the character that charmed the world with its overloaded cuteness…
“On September 2nd 1969, in a lab at the University of California, Los Angeles, two computers passed test data through a 15-foot gray cable.” [more on NatGeo]
It’s a disputable date of birth, depending on how we interpret the term internet. One thing for sure, the internet has come a long way to become what it is today. Sharing an enlightening video, a brief history of the internet…
As convenient as it is, I always wonder if our lives would be a bit more interesting without internet… it took away some excitement of learning and discovery, as information becomes a bit too accessible imo, almost effortless.
Sony is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Walkman. The first model of the personal stereo-audio cassette player, TPS-L2 (pic), was introduced in Japan on July 1, 1979.
The Walkman brand was synonymous with portable personal audio devices until the emergence of iPod in 2001.
People who grew up in the 80s (like me) would have fond memories with the Walkman… most of you here are probably not from that era though.
Computer mouse celebrates its 40th birthday this week. The device was invented by Douglas Engelbart and his team at Stanford Research Institute; it was introduced to the public in a demonstration on December 9, 1968 in San Francisco.
The basic fundamentals of the mouse we use today are about the same as the 1968 invention, but the usage of the mouse wasn’t popularised until more than a decade later since its first introduction. It seems like nobody is really sure though… on who came out with the nickname Mouse.
Personal thanks to Mr Engelbart and his team; computing experience wouldn’t be the same without these technology pioneers.
Mickey Mouse celebrates his 80th birthday on Tuesday (Nov 18)…
