  • If you can buy it for 4$ on eBay, why design it?*


YouTube recommended this to me and besides being pretty cool, you get to see a circa 1980 assembly line for calculators. Sweeeeet!
*Except AC/DC adapters on eBay. Avoid them all!

Thanks for sharing, that was a very interesting retro documentary to watch. We take so much for granted today and quickly forget how hard these giants worked before us to get us here. Those retro-commercials were also hilarious!
