Videos of the week: Palm, Apple and a better world
This week gave us an unusual impetus to indulge in nostalgia, with two high-profile anniversaries. Ten years ago, Palm introduced its Pilot handheld, setting in motion a new era of portable, handheld computing. And thirty years back, Apple Computer made its debut--a scrappy start-up with a knack for turning products into cultural icons.
Meanwhile, eBay helped bring about the e-commerce era and offered up a case study in how to succeed on the Internet.
Those three companies, and the people behind them, are some of the stars of this week's videos--highlights are below. To see all of CNET News.com's latest videos, click here
eBay founder Pierre Omidyar says access, connection and ownership are three reasons why business is good for you.
One CNET editor tells about seeing the very first Palm Pilot on the day it was introduced--and looks at what's happened since.
