    TODO full reviewAbout I've read auhtorMartin Campbell Kelly's From Mainframes to Smartphones as part of my exploration of the history of computing Because I'm a professional in the field as an academic working in computer science distributed systems no less much of what I'm reading was already at least remotely familiar and worse I could actually tell when the author did not get the technology right Very important goal understanding the global computer industry focusing on hardware software and services But the content and the writing do not do justice to the goal The material barely scratches the surface about services and is very light on software The writing itself is overall dull and at times repetitive There simply isn't enough technical detail about the recent Age of Internet to analyze whether the author gets it However extrapolating the uality and detail for this period to infer the uality and depth of the material for the earlier lesser known periods leads to the conclusion that this book lacks much Because this book has only 250 pages some of which is the repetitive material perhaps the author could have created a tome twice as long to get in of what is known about these earlier periods and on software and services But it seems the author has opted to publish at least another book on the topic focusing on software Won't advertise it here because the author may be milking the subject
