Shatner and Cosby Hawking Tech

There are some great technology ads from the 1980s. I'm not sure why the calculator Bill Cosby is "holding" is so gigantic. (No wonder he looks surprised!) I didn't recognize William Shatner without his uniform, although I should have because in his current television series he wears a suit all the time. Then again, it is 20+ years later, so he's aged a bit.

My how things have changed. The ads include an information form readers can fill out and mail in to obtain more information. I don't recall seeing that in the ads of today. Then again, most of the ads of today aren't even on dead trees.
