ComputerWorld has rounded up a number of old-timey computer ads touting $12K 80MB disk systems and some sort of new thing called E-Mail.
“Your mailbox is the terminal on your desk. Punch a key and today’s correspondence and messages are displayed instantly.”
Wow-mazing! It’s been years since I’ve really enjoyed a technology ad — probably not since the Viao ads of the late 1990s where they guy was walking on water dressed in Blade Runner-esque fashion. Ahh, those where the days… when technology was fresh, new and marketers had no idea how to sell it.
