Just read this interesting blog entry from Mark Adams of Type-Writer.org. He describes an internal memo that was circulated within the fledgling Apple offices. In it, it was suggested that all typewriters within the offices be eliminated, replaced by the more efficient word processor machines and software that the company was producing.
Being enamored as I am with these glorious manual type machines, I can only paraphrase Chuck Heston and say “…From my cold, dead hands…” — HEY! Keep yer mitts off my QWERTY’s!
