Apropos of nothing

Post by keithdalby » Wed Feb 21, 2018 8:08 pm

Apropos of nothing, thought someone might want the opportunity to add to their collection. When I first heard of this device, which is about as old as I am, I couldn't believe how far ahead the technology was:

But I don't have the spare cash right now.

"space cash" is that like Mars Money, Mercury Moola, Pluto Pounds or Earth Euros? Perhaps you could get money from Uranus ;)

I wouldn't even know how to enter numbers on that thing. Where's the keyboard?

Whoops, should say 'spare cash'. Thanks for picking that up!

That's the point, it doesn't have one. You draw the numbers and operators on the glass front using your finger.

Cool! I'd probably get it if my wife hadn't bought me a watch for Christmas - Oops! The tag said, "From Santa" so I guess I wasn't supposed to know she was the one who bought it for me!
