IBM's logo.

IBM (International Business Machines) is an American-based business technology company. It was founded in 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company, but changed names to IBM in 1924. The company has been a pioneer in electronic computing inventing much of the technology use with computers. The company was also quite progressive, giving their employees various benefits and bringing in minorities (black, gay, disabled, etc.) long before they were required by law.

In the mid-1990s, I had computer fever and loved everything to do with them. Since it was one of the largest home computer companies at the time, I really loved IBM as well. I remember doing a report on the company's founder, Thomas John Watson. However, as I got older, and started caring about the ethics of business, I started hearing more about IBM's cutthroat tactics, and started hating the company. I'm still not much of a fan of them, but I still admire all the contributions to the field of computers, and their progressive treatment of their employees.
