Coca-cola
The first Coca-Cola recipe was invented in **Covington**, **Georgia**, by **John Stith Pemberton**, originally as a **cocawine** called **Pemberton's French Wine Coca** in 1885.[1][2] He may have been inspired by the formidable success of **European** **Angelo Mariani**'s **cocawine**, **Vin Mariani**.

E-mails

E-mail started in 1965 as a way for multiple users of a time-sharing mainframe computer to communicate. Although the exact history is murky, among the first systems to have such a facility were SDC's Q32 and MIT's CTSS.

TV

Since it first became commercially available from the late 1930s, the television set has become a common household communications device in homes and institutions, particularly in the first world, as a source of entertainment and news

VCRs
Ampex introduced the Ampex VRX-1000, the first commercially successful videotape recorder, in 1956
