How Eudora Came to Be

“I started Eudora in 1988, at the University of Illinois, about four years before I came to Qualcomm. We began it because the internet was a growing and burgeoning place, but email was not really established on the desktop computers that people were using at the time. It was something that you logged in to some mainframe computer to do, and with the ease of use that the desktop operating systems brought, that just wasn’t the right way for people to do email anymore.”
