I was at Barnes & Noble earlier today and I noticed this “book” in the magazine section. For those of you too young to remember, before their was Nintendo anything, before there was Playstation, before there was the iPad, the iPhone or the iPod, before there was Atari 2600 and before there was MacBook…there was the Commodore 64. Here now, in one great book/jumbo magazine, we can all celebrate that greatness of Commodore 64.

The world lost a tech titan and visionary today with the passing of Steve Jobs. I’m sure there will be many great visuals over the coming days, months and years, but for now, this mosaic is pretty cool and it seemed right to post it.

RCA really scored big with this 1968 Newsweek ad for the Notetaper.

It’s a pretty good advertisement. The product is clearly pictured, and almost to the point of actually being able to read the words above and below the various buttons. The products capabilities are clearly described, and this Notetaper is clearly positioned as a problem solver, something that will make life easier for all who use it.

Think about today’s digital world. An iPhone comes loaded with an app that would do the same things as this recorder. That doesn’t include free apps like Evernote, which allow for the same sort of recording capabilities, then when you’re ready, the recordings are quickly synced with your computer and an online interface. Anything that records digitally automatically comes with the ability to instantly delete. Think about deleting and erasing and rewinding that involves tapes of any sort, much less the type of tapes that no doubt existed in 1968. How far we’ve come.
