That would be Morrow Designs... George should've kept the Thinker Toys
thing, and put a hit out on the Tinker Toys lawyers.

I am the proud owner of two Thinker Toys products, the Wunderbus, and
the EconoRAM IV (hope that's the right model, this was one of those
really EARLY dynamic RAM boards; the ceramic gold-topped versions of
these chips worked fine, the but the plastic ones had trouble forgetting
things when they got hit by cosmic rays).
