Every so often I’ll grab a computer magazine from days past off my shelf at random and thumb through it while waiting on a download. Just the other day I did so and ended up with the June 1983 issue of Creative Computing magazine. It’s a great issue that took me back to my very early days dabbling with computers (I got my first computer for Christmas 1982).
One of the most interesting aspects of this magazine is the collection of advertisements over 25 years old. From the overall style, to the products themselves, these ads provide a true glimpse into a whole other era of technology.
I’ve scanned a few of the more interesting ads found in the issue. Have a look, and I hope you enjoy.
