Computer Review evolved from a popular pamphlet published between 1959 and 1961 by Adams Associates from Massachusetts. Known originally as Computer Characteristics Quarterly, the pocketsize publication listed characteristics of the handful of computers and related peripherals then on the market from companies such as Burroughs, IBM, RCA and Univac.
In 1965, under the leadership of the late Roger T. Baust, its respected Editor, the Quarterly was revised and reformatted to include all computing products and to describe their salient characteristics. In 1971 the Quarterly was purchased by George M. Luhowy, its current Publisher, and revised under the supervision of Robert D. MacCormack, a member of the Editorial Board. The Quarterly was renamed Computer Review and issued three times a year for the next 23 years. In 1978 the Computer Review database was fully automated with online availability. In 1994 the Review was reformatted to include Company Profiles and published in a full size book format with Internet updates.
For the past four decades each edition of Computer Review has been expanded and revised to reflect the latest technology markets and present the changes in a coherent and easy-to-use format. Today, Computer Review is a global reference to the digital knowledge economy. It is issued annually, updated daily online and features ActiveTrak
