  • $100 Microsoft promised that the new program would be on the shelf by April 1984; version 1.0 was finally released in 1985 at the cost of $100.00. It probably would have been released under its original name of "Interface Manager" if Microsoft's marketing whiz, Rowland Hanson, had not convinced founder Bill Gates that "Windows" was the better name.

2. 9-1-1 telephone emergency system Haleyville, Alabama introduced the nation's first 9-1-1 system, located at the town's police station. Alabama Speaker of the House, Rankin Fite, made the first call from another city hall room. It was answered by Congressman Tom Bevill on a bright red telephone located at the police department. So, on February 16, 1968, the first 9-1-1 call was made.

3. 1999. This was a tricky one. The euro was FIRST launched on January 1, 1999 as an electronic currency used by banks, foreign exchange dealers, big firms, and stock markets. The new European Central Bank set interest rates across the eurozone. On January 1, 2002, euro banknotes and coins were introduced for use by the 300,000,000 citizens of the 12 countries in the eurozone.

6. O.J. Simpson O.J. rushed for 2,003 yards with the Buffalo Bills, becoming the first player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards in a single season. Even more amazing, he accomplished this feat during an era where teams' schedules consisted of only 14 games!

7. R Rating assigned to the movie by the MPAA The hysterical "Down and Out in Beverly Hills" received an R Rating from the Motion Picture Association of America, the first for any Disney picture. The remake of the 1932 Jean Renoir film "Boudu Saved By Drowning" included nudity, adult language, and adult situations. The Disney Corporation, ever aware of its public image and reputation, decided to create its adult-oriented Touchstone Films division, now known as Touchstone Pictures, for films it saw as racier or more controversial.

8. Deep Blue. After losing to Kasparov in their first meeting in 1996, IBM's Deep Blue supercomputer defeated Kasparov in less than an hour and in only 19 moves. It was Kasparov's first loss ever, and the first time he had ever conceded defeat. It's understandable when you consider that Deep Blue's Power Two Super Chip (P2SC) processor calculated 200 million moves per second or 36 billion moves for the three minutes that the machine was allowed for thinking. Even more impressive, Kasparov's loss came in the 6th game of the 1997 rematch... the first 5 were all draws.
