HOW TO FIND TIME TO THINK
MOST EXECUTIVES recognize the crucial, long-range problems that will affect the future growth of their companies. They know how to handle them, too. Their knottiest problem is to find the time to tackle them after grappling with a daily host of routine problems.
AN IBM MANAGEMENT OPERATING SYSTEM (MOS) can help you find the time. With this new management tool, you can program an IBM computer to collect and analyze business information and to initiate action on predictable questions involving inventory, reordering, shipping, production scheduling. The system will automatically print out exception reports when executive action is required.
Your Computer is Wasting Time and Money!
[unless it’s asynchronous]
Save money with the Philco 2000 Series
In other computers the master clock breaks time into cycles tailored to the longest operation. Shorter operations are also completed within these same time limits. Time is wasted… waiting.
In the asynchronous Philco 2000 Series, there are no clocks. Each operation triggers the next. Time is spent working… not waiting. More operations accomplished in the same time.

Telecomputing announces: the first low-cost data reduction system
Everyone concedes the value of modern data reduction instruments; but not every organization feels it can “afford” them-just yet.
A pioneer in the field of data reduction, Telecomputing has long sought a solution to this problem. It now presents the first low-cost data reduction system which offers speed, accuracy and flexibility at a price most organizations can afford: $5,555.
That Televideo keyboard has a really weird, narrow numeric keypad. Also, it today’s dollars it would cost $716 in today’s dollars, which is pretty insane for a keyboard. KeyTronic is still around and they still sell keyboards, though it looks like they haven’t designed a new one in the last decade. They’ve shifted almost exclusively over to producing products for other companies.
Your System Deserves The Best!
Key Tronic Keyboards.
To enhance the performance of your personal computer or computer terminal, ask your dealer for a plug-compatible Key Tronic keyboard.
Key Tronic Corporation is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of computer keyboards.
“My computer helped me write The Final Encyclopedia. I wouldn’t trust anything less than Scotch Brand Diskettes to make a long story short!”
Gordon R. Dickson,
Science Fiction Author, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Gordon Dickson: a small businessman whose product is his own imagination. He’s written more than 40 novels and 150 short stories; his newest work is The Final Encyclopedia. He uses his personal computer and word processing software to maximize his production. All his words-his product-are stored on diskettes.
This was the first modem I got for my Apple IIc. I remember being crushed when I tried to log in to a particular bulletin board system and it came back with: “300 baud? Yeah right, come back when you’re at least at 1200.”
“My Apple’s telephone just called up the home office!”
The exciting world of telecomputing. With a Hayes system, you just plug it in! Communicating is so easy with a complete telecomputing system from Hayes. Hayes Smartmodem 300™ is a direct-connect modem for the new Apple IIc. Hayes Micromodem IIe installs easily in an expansion slot in the Apple II, IIe, III and Apple Plus. Packaged with Smartcom I™ companion software, both are complete systems. Best of all, both systems are from Hayes, the established telecomputing leader. Just plug in-and the world is your Apple!
“The keyboard is the key to greater challenge.”
The Only Video Game Voice Module with an Unlimited Vocabulary
The Voice from Odyssey 2 adds a whole new dimension to the fun of video games. With this optional module and its specially programmed cartridges, Odyssey 2 becomes the only video game system that can repeat any words typed into the keyboard, and much more!
Depending upon which cartridge you insert The Voice can do a whole bunch of other exciting things. Like asking questions and demanding answers to math and spelling problems. It even enhances sound effects and warns of approaching enemies in certain arcade games!
