IBM Selectric turns 50: Typing wonder of the pre-PC age

Posted on by Mike Evans

Back in April I wrote about Getting Things Done in the 1970s, in particular about the wonderful IBM selectric typewriter that revolutionised typing in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. It’s nostaligic, therefore, to see this excellent IBM Selectric slideshow on the Techologizer site. If you are over a certain age, you’ll love to read all the interesting details. The IBM Selectric was a wonder of the age and it was only the advent of the personal computer in the 1980s that put paid to its world domination.
