my boss tells a story about one of his son's teenage friends. he (my boss) still had an old rotary phone in his workshop in his garage, and the kid needed to call home, so he went into the workshop to use the phone.
after a few minutes, he called my boss in to ask why the phone didn't work.
he had been pressing on the numbers inside the little holes of the round thing on the front of the phone, but nothing was happening...
andy, i remember taking typewriters off of the desks in the newsrooms and replacing them with green or orange monochrome monitors and big ol' keyboards, back in the mid 80's.
it was fun watching the writers freak out thinking that they'd never get the hang of these new things.
