RE: Origin of Personal Computer
Quoting from the Wikipedia article on the personal computer:

Quote:An early use of the term "personal computer" appeared in a November 3, 1962, New York Times article reporting John W. Mauchly's vision of future computing as detailed at a recent meeting of the Institute of Industrial Engineers. Mauchly stated, "There is no reason to suppose the average boy or girl cannot be master of a personal computer".

The article goes on to describe the use of the term "personal computer" in the ad for the 9100A.
