It provides insight into how these products were developed and what might be expected in the future. This account is a personal, in-depth look at the evolution of a high-technology industry from the eyes of the author, who watched it grow from inception to ubiquity over nearly forty years. The story that is told in this book goes beyond the technical details and into the ideas, visions, struggles, deceptions, and ambitions of the scientists and engineers who made it possible.
