Submission + - Atari turns 40 today (time.com)

harrymcc writes: "On June 27, 1972, a startup called Atari filed its papers of incorporation. A few months later, it released its first game, Pong.

Cheese and more than 20 other companies--mostly unsuccessful, but often visionary--and hired and influenced Steve Jobs when he was an antisocial Reed College dropout."
