Developed in secret under a new methodology, today referred to as Black Box. The personal computer was developed in Boca Raton, Florida in isolation from IBM which at the time only developed industrial services. This protected the new off-site innovation team from the growing bureaucracy within IBM. This dishonest culture was unsustainable and proved to be a one-time success for IBM, ending their re-create innovation attempts. IBM lost their leadership position, which further strengthened the PC as a generic device. The PC turned out to be the gem of not only home computing, but also videogames. It is the longest lifespan gaming console ever made and still strong today.
