Prototyping tools started in code and got more visual
Apple Computer Inc. will introduce an unusual
database and management information program
Tuesday that the company hopes will help it
maintain its lead in technology for making
computers easy to use.
The new software, known as Hypercard, will enable
users of Apple's Macintosh computers to organize
information on computerized file cards that can be
linked to other file cards in intricate ways. The
program will be included for no charge with each
Macintosh sold, starting this month.
VideoWorks (1985 predecessor to Director) required
a "Macintosh with at least 128k" and "although
VideoWorks will work satisfactorily with just the
Macintosh's internal drive, a second (external) drive
will help avoid a lot of disc swapping."
Emily Schwartzman road tests many
of the then available prototyping
tools and provides a useful study and
chart — which grows into a general
resource on Cooper.
