By: Michael Savich

It’s no secret that computers have undergone a breakneck-speed innovation since they were first invented. There have been plenty of timelines of computer history, but “The Evolution of Computer Screens,” sent in by a reader, Vince Nero, possesses an uncommon level of pizazz and polish.

The focus of the timeline is on the evolution of computer interfaces, which charters a course starting at the invention of the first prototype of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) continuing through the command line interfaces that dominated the personal computer segment in the period between that prototype and the popularization of the GUI in the first Macintosh, all the way to the iPhone and even the Apple Watch.
It’s a short piece, and you can read it here.
