In the early years of home computer ownership, magazines and newsletters might come bundled with a floppy disk to make it easier to load up programs discussed within their pages. These attached floppies (and cassettes as well) might have one or two programs on them. After the dawn of CD-ROMs, packed-in CD-ROMs (and later DVD-ROMs) expanded out into lauded utilities and games, and also included drivers, demos, promotional material (including game trailers), and ultimately could be entire...

This collection seeks to gather all games and software created for the PlayStation Portable by non-professional developers. Homebrew projects vary enormously in quality and scope - some are created by a single individual in a few days, while others are made by organized teams of amateurs over the arc of months, or even years. All these projects stand as a testament of the creative spirit of the PSP homebrew scene during its heyday in the mid- to late-2000s. Japanese keywords:...

One of the most historically important artifacts to come from the home computer telecommunications revolution was shareware CDs, compact discs put out by companies containing hundreds of megabytes of shareware. Initially containing less than the full capacity of the discs (600mb, later 700mb) these items eventually began brimming with any sort of computer data that could be packaged and sold. As material "ran out", that is, as sellers of these CDs found they were unable to easily find...

The Business Case: Applications and Programs for the Home Office In the early days of home computers, the mere ability to work with a machine in your own home, far away from the requirements and constraints of mainframes, was an idea that sold itself. It was irrelevant whether or not the resulting work at any lasting purpose. As the machines themselves were often underpowered, this irrelevance came in very handy. Advances in the industry lead to machines with sound, graphics, and other...
