Interesting. The guy who's doing my taxes this year says he bought one in
the 70s for his business, but I'd never heard of them. He said it was a
piece of shit and he sued to return it. Even more interesting, he bought
it through Intel, who apparently did retail computer sales in the 70s.

Anyway, he's gonna look for the sales literature he saved from it, and I'm
gonna try to get it off of him.
