The 8008 does not have memory mapped IO, there are distinct IO
instructions. It's not to say MM/io is not done. The PDP-11 memory
and devices are the same things and there are no specialized IO

The altair...(8800 and 8800a) from the front pannel there is no way to
interrogate an port mapped IO device or write to it. You must do it with
a little code.
