theodp writes "As IBM gives itself a self-congratulatory pat on the back as it celebrates its 100th anniversary, Robert X. Cringely wants to set the record straight: 'IBM didn't invent the personal computer', writes Cringely, 'but they don't know that.'

Throwing Big Blue a bone, Cringely is willing to give IBM credit for 'having helped automate the Third Reich'."
