While U.S. Robotics did not invent the modem, they were one of the first
companies to sell them for home use. Here are some U.S. Robotics data sheets
that I got in February 1978.

I don't want to argue about who was first to sell a modem. I just think it
is neat that U.S. Robotics is still around and I have these data sheets
