Brilliant video. Stories like this is what gaming sites should be covering, instead of trivial articles and top ten lists.

There should definitely be more articles like this on here. This was truly interesting, and I thank Dr. Bernard Widrow for all of his hard work in helping make computers and electronics what they are today.

Thanks so much for this video! I would really appreciate more content like this from gaming sites. You may not get as many hits because there's no flame-bait title or picture of boobs but Id take quality articles with worth-while content over those crappy articles.
old pc's ftw!!
