While your watching this video on your desktop, laptop or notebook computer, remember where it all started. The massive, vacuum tube-powered Remington Rand UNIVAC -- an acronym for UNIVersal Automatic Computer -- was one of the first successfully marketed mainframe computers. It gained prominence in 1952, when it correctly prediced the outcome of that year's presidential election, forecasting Republican Dwight Eisenhower as the winner over Democrat Adlai Stevenson, the conventional pollsters' choice. Sixty years ago, UNIVAC was cutting edge technology. Today, the computer you are using has more features and computing capability.
