Today’s post brings a tear to the eye. Retro computer advertisements. For all you 21st Century learners, there were indeed, computers before iPads….
How many readers remember…
- penril modems;
- digi-log systems;
- when 16K of RAM was enormous;
- 80MB for under $12,000;
- Technico Inc;
- Issac Asimov flogging colour computers;
- Tandy 2000;
- Introduction of Microsoft Excel;
- Elvira flogging paper-less solutions?
