What a world we live in now thanks to them. One of my favorite tales I like to regale people with is IBM-related . In the movie, 2001 – A Space Odyssey, the computer HAL takes on human characteristics eventually jeopardizing the entire space mission with his antics. Well, if you take each letter in H A L and use the letter that follows it in the english alphabet it spells I B M. Cool, huh?
