145 Notes

30 years ago today, Time Magazine named “The Computer” its person of the year:

In its story about the pick, the magazine quoted an ad that attempted to answer the question “Will someone please tell me what a personal computer can do?”
"A personal computer, it says, can send letters at the speed of light, diagnose a sick poodle, custom-tailor an insurance program in minutes, test recipes for beer."
It was an ad for Apple Computer.
