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. Provides both 1200 and 300 baud capacity. Offers total interchangeability that lets you transmit information from any make microcomputer to any other make. And your investment is protected by a 2-year warranty.

“My Apple’s telephone just called up the home office!” (Jul, 1984)

“My Apple’s telephone just called up the home office!”
