Silicon Cowboys Silicon Cowboys :- Watch Silicon Cowboyson Youtube on Fire,Three friends dream up the Compaq portable computer at a Texas diner in 1981, and soon find themselves battling mighty IBM, for PC supremacy. Their improbable journey altered the future of computing and shaped the world we now know.By turns amusing and illuminating, and quite often both simultaneously, “Silicon Cowboys” benefits greatly from having ample eyewitness testimony from those who were witnesses at creation. Canion, Harris and Murto come across as appealingly modest yet blunt-spoken average Joes while recalling their salad days at Texas Instruments, the tech giant where they were well-compensated employees — but just restless enough to strike out with their own startup. After considering, albeit not very seriously, joint ownership of a Tex-Mex restaurant, the three men set out in 1981 to design, manufacture and sell an innovative portable personal computer capable of operating IBM desktop PC software.At the time, of course, “portable” was a relative term in the PC world. Much like the already-in-production Osborne model, the first Compaq was more precisely a “luggable” device roughly the size of a sewing machine, with two floppy-disc drives and a built-in monochrome monitor smaller than most modern-day iPads. But unlike the Osborne — aptly dismissed by one of the Compaq founders as “extremely ugly” — the debut product of the Houston start-up actually could run the IBM software, thanks to some canny (and legally questionable) reverse-engineering and a great deal of trial and error on the part of Canion, Harris, Murto. (Film historians and movie buffs may find it amusing to compare how the Compaq guys “borrowed” from IBM to the Lumiere Brothers’ reconstitution of Edison’s kinetograph as their own cinematograph.)
