32 years ago, Office changed office automation
Yesterday, August 1, 2021, Office was no less than 32 years old. This office suite saw the light of day in 1989, and it did so curiously for Mac systems. It was not until a year later, in 1990, when the office program did not reach Windows.
The first Office came with Word and Excel programs, and they were very rudimentary programs compared to the ones we know now. They even took up only 20 KB in system memory! Thanks to these programs, today we can work with the computer as we do.
Congratulations, Office! Although he is not the only one who has been on his anniversary this weekend. Without going any further, just as last week was the anniversary of Windows NT, last Saturday was the birthday of Windows NT 4.0, a version of Windows for professional use released in 1996 between Windows 95 and Windows 98.
On this day in 1996, Windows NT 4.0 was released to manufacturing pic.twitter.com/v2uvZnZs4Q

Does Elon Musk want to control Apple?
Elon Musk is a very peculiar person. The well-known CEO of Tesla usually gives a lot to talk about. But never as much as what has come to light thanks to a book, written by one of the editors of the Wall Street Journal, «Power Play: Tesla, Elon Musk, and the Bet of the Century“, Which indicates that Musk asked to be the CEO of Apple in negotiations for the purchase of Tesla by Apple.
Both Musk and Cook they have flatly denied it. But some negotiation must have happened in the past. Musk was interested in meeting Tim Cook to offer her the chance to buy Tesla when it was only worth 6% of its current value. Cook refused to meet him, so it was all left to that. What is true is that the relationship between Elon Musk and Apple should not be entirely pleasant, when the car giant has sided with Epic Games in its lawsuit against Apple for the Fortnite case.
The best Windows error memes
Nowadays, when Windows fails, what we usually see is the typical blue screen, with a sad face, that tells us that something has not gone well. However, do you remember what bugs were like in the Windows 98 era, and even with Windows XP? Sometimes, when explorer failed, we would find a most curious effect when dragging a window.
As time went by, Windows learned to recognize errors and tried to help us solve them easily. When an error occurred, the system itself began to look for a solution on its own … although the truth is that it was of no use.
And how can we forget about Windows updates when we turn off our computer, especially when we are in a hurry …
