The NNC "No Name Computer"- you will not find a "logo" as it was truly no name. Created my my old friend "Sandy Watson" who passed away in 2009- here is his story.
The NNC Computer was the brainstorm of "Sandy" Watson in the Late 70's to create a CP/M based Business Computer. He had this idea while sipping on his regular coffee drink at a table in his No Name Restaurant located in Long Beach, CA! He was ahead of his time but was successful in bringing the NNC to market. He died early and always attributed it to jumping in to the crowded PC market and the struggles thereforth. Here is the Sandy Watson story
Alexander Yearly "Sandy" Watson Alexander Yearly "Sandy" Watson, born February 28, 1933 in Baltimore, Maryland, died peacefully at his Long Beach home April 16, 2009. Sandy, as all knew him, is survived by hi s loving wife of 29 years, Faith; two sons, Scott and Steven and their mother Louise; four grandchildren, Shane, Elizabeth, Katherine and Kurt; as well as his two sisters, Elizabeth Hewett and Jean Bertram. As a young man, Sandy's adventure started with a solo transcontinental motorcycle ride. Starting in New York, he drove across the country eventually landing in Northern California, where he settled for a while. Sandy had many passions and vocations. Art was an early love, and one of the first stops on hi s varied career path was as Professor of Sculpture at the College of Marin. Later, Sandy was known primarily as an inventor and entrepreneur. One of his inventions, an underwater speaker, required that he travel to Long Beach to discuss applications with the Department of the Navy. The most lasting result of that trip was his meeting a young schoolteacher named Faith, whom he married on June 27, 1970. Sandy's next career was as a Restaurateur, opening the "No Name Restaurant" in Naples in the early '70s. He practically built the restaurant singlehanded, including its rooftop dining area, which still exists today. The "No Name" only served breakfast and lunch, specializing in omelets, and was particularly popular on weekends. Those weekends were a family affair, with the boys clearing tables and Faith sitting on the $20s until Sandy could afford a register. In the late 70s, sensing an opportunity, Sandy made a bold move by taking the No Name brand into the burgeoning microcomputer industry and founding No Name Computers (aka NNC Electronics). Demand for NNC's innovative business computers was international and required significant travel to Europe and Australia where he often turned customers into lifelong friends. Sandy was much loved by everyone who knew him and we are very glad he graced our lives. A Memorial Service will be held at Luyben Family Dilday-Mottell Mortuary, 5162 E. Arbor Road, Long Beach on Sunday, April 26th at 2pm.

Another early failure from the PC explosion. The Advanced 286 Desktop. Artwork by David Em. In 1984 I made numerous visits to Taipei, Taiwan to source a new PC compatible. I usually stayed at the Howard Plaza and Shangri-La-La. I was close to selecting a vendor for our new Advanced 286. On final day I visited 4 Taiwan manufacturers including Mitac, DFI, FCC and others. As I checked in many US companies had also visited same day- Benny from Packard Bell, Michael Dell and more. I selected Mitac and placed an order 1000 computers with first container to be delivered to ACP in Santa Ana. Upon my return to the USA the next week MiTAC opened its own business in San Jose offering same computer with more features at a dealer cost $100 lower than my container cruising along in the Pacific Ocean. I was forced to cancel my order in full. It would have been a fun ride for a while but the market quickly turned into a blood bath with few winners. Here was our first add for the Advanced 286 placed in CSN and BYTE.
