The International Business Machines corporation or IBM for short is celebrating its 100th year this year and came out with a video that said that gave IBM the credit for the personal computer.

IBM Innovation Vice President Bernie Meyerson said, “There was a remarkable breakthrough that wasn’t about a chip or a thing, it was rather the integrated whole that mattered”. After this quote the VP quickly moved to celebrate the invention of typewriter, magnetic strips and bar codes without further commenting on the statement.

Among his milestones IBM’s VP of Innovation completely forgets to mention the company having helped automate the Third Reich.”
