CoCo: The Colorful History of Tandy’s Underdog Computer is the first book to document the complete history of the Tandy Color Computer (CoCo), a popular 8-bit PC series from the 1980s that competed against the era’s biggest names, including the Apple II, IBM PC, and Commodore 64. The book takes you inside the interesting stories and people behind this unique, underdog computer. Both noted computer science and technology advocates, authors Pitre and Loguidice reveal the story of a pivotal period in the home computing revolution from the perspective of Tandy’s CoCo. As these computers were sold in Radio Shack stores throughout the United States and other countries, they provide a critical point of reference for key events in the unprecedented evolutionary period for the PC industry in the 1980s. The book also features first-hand accounts from the people who created and promoted the CoCo, from the original Tandy executives and engineers to today’s active product creators and information keepers. The CoCo impacted many lives, and this book leaves no stone unturned in recounting this fascinating slice of the PC revolution that is still in play today. From early telecommunications experiments to engineering and budgetary challenges, it covers all the aspects that made the CoCo a truly personal, useful computing experience in as small and inexpensive a package as possible.

„Ein Schiff ist mehr als die Summe von Rumpf, Kiel und Segeln.“ Wer je ein eigenes Boot besessen oder von ihm geträumt hat, versteht diese besondere Beziehung von Skipper und Schiff. Manchmal hält sie Jahrzehnte. Und lässt beim Wiedersehen so manchen windgestählten Skipper weich werden. Holger Peterson kennt sie alle: Menschen am Meer, verhaftet mit ihren Schiffen und gesegnet mit „geschenkten Seemeilen“ aus dem Strom der Gezeiten. Er erzählt über Els Sanders, der mit 82 Jahren noch immer an friesischen Küsten entlang segelt; vom berührenden Treffen der vier ehemaligen Eigner der LEVIATHAN, einer Reinke Taranga; von Herbert, der auf seinem Schiff eingelegte Gurken verkauft; oder von Jörg und Normena, die als Paar zusammen, aber jeder für sich auf einem eigenen kleinen Boot leben. Egal ob Marlene und Stefan 30 Jahre lang an einem Boot gebaut haben und erst jetzt auf Fahrt gehen oder ob das Segeln, wie etwa für Marc, buchstäblich neuen Lebensmut nach langer Krankheit gebracht hat... Menschen und Boote - das ist eine lebenslange und manchmal nicht ganz unproblematische Beziehung. In diesem Buch erzählen Eigner mit Leidenschaft und Liebe von ihren kleinen und großen Abenteuern zwischen Watt und Weltumsegelung.
