Retro Computer Ads To Make You Feel Old
It's sometimes easy to forget just how far computers have come over the last 50 years. It wasn't so long ago we had processors the size of chest freezers, modems the size of microwaves and the chance to purchase huge 10mb hard dives for only (only!) $3,398.
So if you grew up with 5.25" floppy disks, dot matrix printers and cursor key joysticks then we've unearthed some vintage ads for computers, accessories, and related technology which might help you relive the 'good old days'...
What the what? Were there no advertising standards in 1984? They are literally telling you that HERO JR is a fully functioning robot (which looks like a squared-off Dalek) with all the capabilities of Robin Williams in Bicentennial Man.
Hmm, I somehow doubt that!
