Great British computers: A ZDNet retrospective
Would you believe the first ever business computer totted up the price of cakes, bread and pies? You would if you knew it was operated by a British tea-shop company.
The Lyons Electric Office computer (LEO), along with Edsac -- the UK's first fully operational general-purpose computer -- and Tunny and the code-breaking heroes from Bletchley Park, make up the British computers that paved the way for our calculators, our PCs, our tablets, our computing future.
Take a trip down computing memory lane with this ZDNet guide to great British computers.
