ABSTRACT
An early stand-alone data entry machine that stored data on magnetic tape for computer entry. Introduced by Mohawk Data Sciences in the mid-1960s, it was the first major advancement in data entry since the card keypunch. Mohawk's stock went from USD $2 to $200 in a couple of years, reminiscent of the dot-com explosion. See key-to-disk machine.
