Atari, Inc. was an American video game and home computer company founded in 1972 by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney. They introduced several products to the North American market that cemented video games as part of popular culture. 2600 anyone? Bam!
Al Acorn worked here- the guy who invented Pong.
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak (before they started Apple Computer) worked here in 1974.
The company closed up shop and sold assets in 1984.
