New episode of "The History of Personal Computing" Podcast: Altair 8800 and Kaypro

HistCompListen along as David Greelish and Jeff Salzman discuss the history of the Altair 8800 and Kaypro computer.

The Altair 8800 is a Tier One computer presented as the first “commercially available home computer.” As such, it was chosen to be the first computer we talk about on this podcast.

The Kaypro was chosen due to a recent and unfortunate event. Its founder, Andrew Kay, had passed away. The computer he created is an early Tier Two computer, representing a line of portable computing devices.

The companion website is also online. To check it and download the podcast, follow the link below.
