    Stec and Simmers were "computers" (mathematicians/programmers). Here they are two years ago: https://apgnews.com/community-news/a...ale-computers/

    Power consumption too. Our microwave oven was made in 1989 and when idle (just showing the time) it draws about as much power as my Android tablet in use. I've put a power switch on the cord and we keep if off unless in use.

    As for longevity... yes that GE combination convection microwave has been in daily use since we bought it in 1989. I've replaced a door switch, vacuumed out dust, and oiled the fan motor but otherwise it's still cooking. Checked for microwave leaks with a meter, nothing unusual.

    As usual I've got some smartassed comment, but read the "years later" link in Jon's post. Those ladies and photo caused a revolution.
