Wizard Pocket Calculator (May, 1960)
My girlfriend actually bought me one of these at a garage sale a while back. I’ll have to find it to make sure I have a genuine Thoresen model not one of those “cheaper, erratic, look-alike, all-plastic calculators imported from the Orient, near communist China”. Apparently being made in a country near communists brings down the quality of your goods. Unlike West Germany which was right next to communist East Germany…
Also, why can you only use the wallet to hold $1, $5 and $10 dollar bills. Is there something wrong with the $2, $20 and the $100? Do you need an advanced model to handle those denominations?

Putting color to work in computers.
Computers that present a wealth of confusing information serve only to slow the information process. At ISC. we use color graphics as a highly-effective communications medium. Why color? Research has shown that color conveys information more quickly and effectively than any other visual method. Thus, when compared to black and white a color CRT display results in faster, more accurate user response. And that means faster decisions from the ultimate processor, the human brain.
