Euro Pirates of Silicon Fenn

July 1, 2009

Some of you will remember a film entitled the Pirates of Silicon Valley about the competition between Microsoft/Bill Gates and Apple/Steve Jobs in the late seventies and early eighties. Well it seems that BBC are going to make  a European version regarding the giants of the UK computer scene. I wonder if it will be quite as glamourous.

During the 1980’s there was a battle of the computer makers which influenced the decision making during that time.
