From the stories of History, to the devices how little and compact the technology,we played with them .
I remember ever so clearly from my photographic memory — been asked to wait in my room by my dad as he brought home out of a box a Computer from his car, the one that drove him to work each day. A Company that supported his families growth. Education was key for the future employees growth at the office and at home.. That’s how most organisations grow. Developing the Future sustainability of its entity with their Human Resource.
