40 Years Ago Today, Radio Shack Released The TRS-80 Computer

Radio Shack's TRS -80 Computer in 1977


Most of us use our electronic devices like computers, smart-phones, and tablets every day — and even some older folks have started to take all this wonderful technology for granted.

In fact, people born in the last 10 to 20 years may find it difficult to imagine a world without them.


Today on LiveLeak someone posted that it was 40 years ago today that Radio Shack (Tandy Corporation) released their TRS-80 computer — and they embedded a video of an early commercial first aired in 1978 - which I've attached below.

They seemed like little more than toys — and a lot of folks couldn't imagine what this new technology would mean for the future. 

I certainly couldn't!!

See you again soon!
