taligent.jpgWhen I was in California recently, I also took a trip to Apple Headquarters, buying some stuff at the Apple Company Store. Driving down the De Anza Blvd., I came upon this piece of history, bringing back feelings of hope for our favorite platform back in the 90's. Taligent was supposed to save the world from the dominance of the dark empire. A seemingly strong alliance was forged, but failed to deliver. Taligent was dismantled in 1998, but the sign at the De Anza Blvd. remained, exposed to the destructive forces of time. The building that housed Taligent is still up for lease.
