DNP This is the Modem World The great computer cold war of 1982

I’ve known my friend Jeff since I was 2 years old. He was one year ahead of me in school, but in everything else — little league, school, girls — we were extremely competitive. We both had two sisters and looked to one another as brothers and yardsticks for prepubescent success. He was better at baseball and I usually had better luck with the ladies. Being better at baseball helped him with the ladies and having a way with the girls made the baseball thing kind of irrelevant. In short, I was better.

I saw Jeff last week, and as we reminisced about the good old days of baseball and babes, he reminded me of what he called The Great Computer Cold War of 1982.

“The great what?” I asked him.
