1973 was a big year for my kids and they weren’t even born then. It marked the beginning of the mobile world they can’t live without. It changed the business of business … forever. IBM’s Palo Alto Scientific Center introduced a cute big thing called SCAMP (Special Computer APL Machine Portable) which was the forerunner of the portable computer which became the ultralight notebook. Of course, it probably weighed a freakin’ ton, but it was portable. That was the same year Motorola’s Martin Cooper showed off the company’s phone brick and made a mobile phone call.
