Canon colour devices
Since the first shipment of Canon colour devices, technology has come a long way in this time and has changed the way that people live and work. In 1985 Microsoft invented Windows and in 1990 the world was given the World Wide Web. Not only that, since 1977 society has seen the rise of the mobile phone, Apple Macintosh and the invention of the Walkman.
