Mars Inc

A long time ago I read a science fiction story called Mars Inc. It was about a man who paid some scientists to develop all this micro-miniaturized stuff to induce humans to work together. You know "the Martians are coming and how can we compete"?

I was fascinated by the idea of storing a jukebox full of tunes in a bit the size of a sugar cube.

With the iPhone and other such products in hand or on the way science fiction has become a reality. Except for the Martians.

If any one knows the author of Mars Inc. please leave a comment. Better yet is the story on the 'net?

Commenter Bert Wiener says the story is 'The Martian Shoppe' by Howard Fast. You can read it here.
