own proprietary technology. Hence, you had to buy that company’s hardware and could ONLY talk to other people that where using that company's technology. Eventually the industry realized that was a “crap shoot” and it would never work. So around the early 90’s standards were established and eventually all the tech companies jumped on board and designed their technology around a standard (those who didn’t are no longer in business).
All of a sudden the internet, which was already almost 30 years old at that time, became popular for innovation and hence internet browsers were born, routers (the backbone of the internet) were built and email, and now webinars and iPhone.
Maybe one day there will be enough motivation for the collectible industry to follow a standard and evolve from a “crap shoot” to a community where collectors and dealers are communicating with each other.
