vintage ad: Commodore computers (1983)

click for embiggenment.

ahhh, Compu Serve! My first girlfriend’s father was hooked on CS back in the early 90s. Great times were had there reading about Star Wars trivia and buying figures “on-line” for “little green things” since


Interesting that Commodore’s anonymous ad copywriter crows about the costs for access to the boring world of early “telecomputing”, but $300 on top of the already pricey for the time Commodore must have seemed pretty daunting. There wasn’t even any porn! Thank God for our brave computing pioneers whose tireless work lead to the world class porn delivery system that is the Global Information Superhighway today.
