Hello, welcome to a bonus interview-only edition of the Floppy Days Podcast, the podcast about the obsolete computers of the late 70’s through the 80’s, but which we love anyway.  I’m Randy Kindig, the person who brings you this nostalgia on a monthly basis.  I’ve had many vintage computer authors on Floppy Days in the past and I like to discuss new books when they come out, one: because books on vintage computing are rare and two: I like to help and encourage new books on my favorite hobby.  My special guest today is Evan Koblentz. Evan’s here to discuss his new book, “From the abacus to smartphone: The evolution of mobile and portable computers.”  Evan will tell you all about why you should run, not walk, and go get this interesting book.  Enjoy!
