Description
This circular button has a yellow background with blue text that reads: "MAGEE'S Plant-A-Tree Program." Along the bottom border in blue text it reads: "MAGEE ENTERPRISES, Inc. Post Office Box 1587, Norcross GA 30091 USA". In the center is an outline of a blue tree with 'leaves' formed by fluorescent green and pink floppy disks. Beneath the tree is a small pink bird outlined in blue. A mark in black ink on the reverse reads: "CDX '90."
In the March 2, 1987 issue of "Computerworld," the magazine staff reported on Automenu version 4 from Magee Enterprises, Inc. Version 4 allowed users of IBM microcomputers and compatibles to set up a menu system that directly executed IBM PC-DOS commands. At the "Fed Micro '90" conference the company demonstrated their set of advanced interface design tools for C Programmers named Screen Manager Professional. This software supported windows and menus, as well as data entry from the keyboard and mouse. It also enabled the overlapping of windows. In 1991 they introduced Network H.Q., an inventory program that collected workstation data when users logged onto the network and added the information to an inventory database.
