Silicon Cowboys – A Quick Capsule Review

Silicon Cowboys – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Fantastic documentary about the story of then underdog Compaq and it’s assault on corporate giant and market leader IBM.  From a meeting in a Texas diner in 1981 through to the inevitable decline (see the Apple story also), it’s fascinating stuff.  And it won’t just be for tech heads and nerds, this story has appeal beyond that.  Well worth a watch.
