Radio Shack's TRS-80 turns 35

For the next several years, it was the world's most popular PC--but it never got the respect it deserved. (I still wince when I hear "Trash-80.") Over at TIME.com, I'm celebrating the anniversary with some reflections on the machine and why it was so underappreciated."
