The fascinating history of the blinking computer cursor

Something that's there and we barely notice, taking for granted: A blinking cursor. Before that simple blinking, it was way harder to get things done. This article goes through the history of it's creation, and how much Steve Jobs (pboh) hated them. Good article, except the glaring flaw that says we store files in the CPU. (heh)
