Re: [midatlanticretro] Re: More Classic Computer Ads
- I remember Ed Juge's name from the early 80's when I bought my TRS-80
Model I....so I decided to google to see what he did post-Tandy.
Unfortunately he passed away in 2003. It made me sad to realize that
a lot of the guys who were in the center of the computer revolution
are no longer with us. Some of the name I remember off hand are: Adam
Osborne and George Morrow.
I was fortunate enough to meet Adam Osborne at the PC-Expo trade show
in the 90's and he was a pretty cool guy. It was interesting to see
how few people recognized him.

- Just be careful with the 1.2gb version. Compaq had to replace almost
all the ones they had in Deskpros back in the day. I know as I was
one of the guys doing the replacing. The higher capacity ones may not
have shared the same issue though.
