Old ads are so fucking weird.
This one is an ad for the legendary IBM Selectric.
Which reminds me... I'm gonna dust off my Model M and bring it to work. Sick of Apple's slick piece of shit keyboard. It might be pretty but it's not practical as a typing machine; probably because Steve Jobs wasn't a programmer typing away all day.
Amazing. Maybe I'll quit dragging around a sketchbook and pencil and just use this. Maybe. I'll install this one soon.
So far, nothing has exceeded the low-tech solution. No matter how many times I try fancy apps like Evernote or whatever, I always forget them and fall back to the good ol moleskine. They're just too much work:
Flip open iPad. Turn it on. Look for the icon; fuck, It's on the third screen. Swipe over. Locate notetaking app. Wait for it to load. Push a few buttons to create a new post or a new page, push a few more to get the pen or text, then I can finally start typing. The idea might've flown away by that point!
