1977 technology:

The above was "cutting edge" for the standards of the time. Back in '77, there might've been one computer in an entire office building, and only around '77 did we start to see personal computers that didn't take up a whole floor. Of course, being only 9, I was too young back then to know first-hand, but that's what I was told. About the ad, between you and me, I have absolutely no idea what that tape recorder's supposed to be for.

The tape recorder was your data storage. Disk drives were expensive add-ons, so many people used these until the prices started coming down.

It's amazing how far we've come when you really think about it. I can't even remember what we did before the internet.
