A great flashback
This is a pretty good episode. Of course there is the fear of a Japanese technology invasion. Why didn't the show worry about the US exporting to the rest of the world?
Highlights of the show include:
First showing of the CDROM
Discussion about the lousy MSX architecture, and
Compaq making an IBM AT compatible.
