But its much faster and easier to do it with software. One of the
things that made the Apple so nice was that it was an excellent
prototyping machine. You had all sorts of inputs and outputs with which
to play with. You didn't need to spend time designing an interface card,
the Apple was experimenter ready! Just add software.
