    That and the Apple computer circa 1984 which is why I posted here. Yes, TV.

    My old phone number was Elgin 969787. My grandmother's number was Empire 30185. Shortened to EL-96987 and EM-30185. I cant remember my cell number, fancy that.

    I remember the line sharing. You would pick up the receiver and you could listen to others on the line. You had to wait until they were done with their call.

    My family's (parents') first phone number in the DC area was OLympic 7-8885. There were neither area codes nor zip codes in the late '40s. I think you needed the assistance of an operator for long distance calls. Whatever, I wasn't allowed to make any.

    I have no idea why I remember this now, over 60 years later...when I can't recall whether or not I presently have a phone.

    Wow ! My first career job at Motorola, designing automated test programs for some of the sub boards in there. I got laid off, downturn, then ten years later it finally was approved by FCC and they started selling them in the 80's.

    I nearly bought a book in Oxfam today. It was published on 1958 by Burke of London. It was written by a Canadian who was working for the Daily Telegraph - if my memory serves me right.

    He wrote about new technologies in simple terms with photos and drawings. Examples were: -

    1, Nuclear powered aircraft, and ships.
    2. Rocketry.
    3. Wind turbines to generate electricity. An example looked like an aircraft engine nacelle with aeroplane's propellor.
    4. Huge frame computers used to make airframe design calculations

    Now, should I go back to purchase this book?
