The 90's were really interesting times for computers and the story is told in a unique manner.
29 December 2018 | by Markl006See all my reviews

What a time the 1990's were. Fortunes made and lost in hours, industries created and destroyed overnight, new innovations being created and sometimes eclipsed within days, vaporware and outright fraud being shopped around and making millions. This is the story of a few of the major players in Silicone Valley during this time. The story is intertwined with actors acting out key plot points in both realistic and artistic ways and some of the real players telling us what happened and what it was like. This is a must watch for anyone who lived through this era in computers or anyone interested in what is going to happen to the industry in the future, we all know history is destined to repeat itself.
