TR Dojo Quiz: 100 years of IBM history

As International Business Machines (IBM) prepares to celebrate its 100th birthday, test your knowledge of this American tech icon.

On Thursday, June 16 2011, International Business Machines (IBM), perhaps America's oldest tech company, will turn 100 years old. To test your knowledge of this iconic company, I've put together a quick TR Dojo Pop Quiz.

If you need a bit of a refresher before taking the quiz, check out this quick CBS News Sunday Morning video on IBM's history.

Note: Unfortunately, our poll tool, which I use to create each pop quiz, doesn't let me indicate a correct answer after each question. To keep from giving away the answers before everyone has a chance to test his/her knowledge, and ruining all the fun, I've published the answers on the last page of this blog post. I encourage everyone to answer all the questions before looking at the last page or using your favorite search engine to find the answers.
