IBM "Today International Business Machines celebrated a relative rarity in the tech business - its one hundredth anniversary. By contrast Google is a mere 12 years old, Apple is 35, Microsoft is 36, and Hewlett-Packard is 72 years old." One of the most important companies in the computer industry. Congratulations, IBM, on to the next century! And we get to use our IBM logo for once. Yay!

IBM has a lot of remarkable achievements since they are - unlike most other companies - doing basic research.
Personally I'm most impressed by the quality of OS/2 and the ThinkPad. (Although they abandoned their software child, it is still alive and serving me well.)
