BUYING A PASSWORD MODEM CAN SAVE YOU UP TO $250. (Jul, 1984)

I don’t understand the “AND THAT AIN’T HAYES!”. I mean, I know that Hayes was the dominant modem at the time, but what is the reference to? It sounds like it should be “and that ain’t pocket change” or something…

AND THAT AIN’T HAYES!

You can bank on it. Your outlay will be less than if you settle for our major competitor, but not your output! A Password’” modem sends and receives up to 120 words a minute.

I love the idea of having a phone handset hanging off the side of an Apple II.

Take your pick of the litter.

Announcing a small improvement on the Apple IIe (Jul, 1984)

Announcing a small improvement on the Apple IIe

It’s 12″x 11-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. It weighs less than 8 pounds* And costs less than $1,300** Yet with 128K, the new Apple® IIc Personal Computer is a lot bigger than it looks.

MIND OVER MATTERS (Sep, 1979)

MIND OVER MATTERS

Life’s full of little problems.

Everyone faces them… the business-man trying to figure out current inventory or accounts receivables. The home cook who wants to cut down a recipe for 8 to serve only 5. Or the language student trying to learn the difference between “gesundheit” and “gemutlichkeit.”
