Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

Yes, he led two of the companies which produced some of the computers some of us cherished in our kid years, but that is a far from being a technological "innovator."

at Commodore 64 - 25th Anniversary Celebration Steve Wozniak noted that the Apple II was cheaper to build than the PET 2001 and sold for three times the price. "We wanted to build a company that would be around for awhile," he poked Jack.

Jack Tramiel make computers affordable to millions of people.
