  1. You made me do it! I had to read that issue almost cover to cover. Or at least the ads, anyway. But I found something interesting on page 348: an article on “Paddles”, which are circuits made to plug into breadboards. The paddles described include a pulse generator, a 2-digit LED display, and A/D and D/A converters.

    Kind of like some of the breakout boards Adafruit has been inventing to make things easer for experimenters, a mere 33 years later!

    Everything old is new again…

  2. Thank god we came up with SDCards, can you imagine lugging those giant disks? 🙂
    They did go spot-on for that Blackberry keyboard, though. Good Job! 😀
