Today in Computer History

On this day
… in 1992 – Chip Deal with IBM (US), Toshiba (Japan) and Siemens (Germany). IBM announced these three companies joining together to create a memory chip able to store 250 million bits of data. This collaboration will take place in one of IBM’s factory in East Fishkill, NY making this a significant stride for IBM and America as well as a new global cooperation, minimizing previous fighting for market leadership.
