Did you know that Panasonic has a factory making vacuum cleaners staffed entirely by computerized robots, which operates 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week in total darkness? Or that the fastest computer printer can print 224-page book in 30 seconds, and its primary use is printing junk mail? Or that the largest known prime number has 13,395 digits—it was discovered by a computer but nobody knows for what it can be used?
The Naked Computer is a big, lively, funny and entertaining collection of data on computers and computer people including some of the strangest lists you are ever likely to find: the biggest failures in computer companies; movies featuring computerized robots (complete with a critical commentary); the largest computer crimes.
Filled with photographs, drawing and cartoons of all kinds, The Naked Computer is the complete source book of computer notables, wierd facts, world records and believe-it-or-nots.
