AppStorey is a video Documentary and a three part series
- the rise of the post-war, general purpose digital computer — the computer we know today didn’t have to be like it is.
- the rise of the software crisis, the need to digitally distribute and protect data over the internet.
- the rise of the mobile computer and the day where everyone uses the web and downloads apps and music to their computer.
In the beginning of digital computing history, a computer was designed and conceived to crunch numbers faster than people. Later, by the early 1960’s, Silicon brains for these computers began doubling their capacity each one to two years in an unstoppable forward march.
this constant forward march was starting to double seriously powerful computing, and by the 1980’s software itself needed entirely new ways to keep up with that pace.
We had to say goodbye to boxes and shopping at places called Egg Head. we had to start distributing software in new and different ways.
The trouble was that to distribute software you had to print up books and boxes and enough to fill retail stores across the country (and the world) – now, that’s a lot of boxes! now, try to get your bug fixing update to everyone and it just can’t be done
The web and the App Store both were created using the same tools and technologies used to create Apple Watch apps today and both inventions were created on the NeXT computer during this critical time of the early 1990’s
Today’s mobile computer depends on this free-flowing distribution of content combined with the protection of digital rights online. never before had there been a single place where developers could get reliable data encryption even for just a song!
