The computers you mention were marketed to home users and individual users. ( For example, I knew several proffesors who bought them to play with the then new researxch area fractals. )

Vectors were sold to businesses that is why you never heard of them.

I think there is a bit more to it.
I think that it was either Pao's idea or JJ's and he went to Pao. She then suggests it. Victoria says "bad idea". Which it is. JJ can't stop running his mouth. A controversial person who can't stop running his mouth on the internet is going to wind up getting results like the "LemonLyman" website episode of the West Wing.

From what I hear that is exactly what happened. JJ wound up shooting himself in the testicles. now Pao needs someone to blame. So goodbye Victoria. The rest is history.

And tomatoes can be grown in the city, but how can I make Urban Mozzarella? I don't think my landlord will let me keep an Italian Mediterranean buffalo in my studio apartment.. Maybe I can build a stall in my parking spot.

Remember the million dollar hamburger? The slab of meat they grew without a cow? Once they get good at it I suspect they can grow mammary tissue which can be used to produce milk.
