Moreover, technology was being shaped during the 1970s and 1980s since many people had identified the various forms of necessity, thereby working towards bringing about various technological advancements that would come in handy in future.
Since William Saito had an interest in dissecting objects and understanding their modes of operation, he had already showcased an interest in engineering. Also, he was a bright student, and his teacher even proposed that his parents should get him a personal computer. By having access to a personal computer, Saito would improve on his science and math skills. Moreover, since he had also tried to crack the copy-protection software while in fifth grade, having a personal computer would help him explore his passion for programming and software.
