Bell Labs paralleled IBM's building of the Mark I in its first steps into the large-scale computer world: both considered the computer as being far outside their normal sphere of business, but both entered that field and built computers that contributed to the war effort.
Bell Labs built one more machine, the Model VI, which was a simpler version of the Model V. The Model VI was the only relay machine besides the Complex Number Computer that they kept for their own use; the others were for the military.
Bell Labs had a lot of capital invested in their relay technology; they embarked on a plan of slow and gradual replacement by transistors as the relay circuits wore out.

 Scientific fraud found at Bell Labs   (Site not responding. Last check: )
By LINDA A. -- A series of extraordinary advances claimed by scientists at Bell Labs are based on fraudulent data, a committee investigating the matter reported yesterday.
Bell Labs is the research arm of Lucent, which makes telecommunications gear; the labs used to be part of AT&T. The research involved work by Schon and other scientists in the fields of superconductivity, molecular electronics and molecular crystals, which could bring improvements to computers and telecommunications in a decade or more.
The committee's 125-page report, submitted to Bell Labs late Tuesday, concludes that Schon did not maintain proper laboratory records, and devices that might have been used to confirm his results were all either damaged or discarded.

Or has Bell Labs conceded its preeminence in basic science, opting instead for the kinds of business-driven technological innovations that can come to term in months instead of years or decades; has the institution opted, in other words, against the lightness of the scientific and toward the gravitational pull of the commercial?
Lucky, who served at Bell Labs for 31 years, is one of a number of "old-timers" who longs for "the golden years," believing that "the spirit has gone out of the place, a spirit whose passing people mourn."
But with a new president, Daniel Stanzione, just beginning his administration, Lucky and others wonder if Bell Labs is not necessarily in for a downsizing or a restructuring that will see an increasing number of scientists attached directly to business units rather than remaining in independent research groups.
