Apple and Google’s Quest to Quench Fake News

When I started out as a tech analyst in 1981, there were no PC analysts. I had come to Creative Strategies, which at that time was the tech arm of a global consulting firm called Business International, to cover mini-computers and sell reports on this technology. But when IBM introduced the IBM PC in 1981, I was asked to switch over and add PCs to my workload. Consequently, I became known as a PC analyst and since PC’s were new and gaining attention, all of a sudden I started getting calls from traditional business reporters to help them make sense of this new PC trend.
