Sight Gag: Do You Remember When … ?


Sight Gags” is our weekly nod to the ironic and carnivalesque in a vibrant democratic public culture.  We typically will not comment beyond offering an identifying label, leaving the images to “speak” for themselves as much as possible.  Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think capture the carnival of contemporary democratic public culture.

  1. My own first computer was an imitation Osborne: an IBM Portable PC with a 9-inch amber display, two floppy drives, no hard drive, and an optional-extra printer card. It was about the size and shape of a sewing machine in its case, weighed 30 pounds (I still have its heavy canvas carrying bag), and cost $2500 in 1985 dollars.

    But that 1981 Italian ad says the Osborne can be used on an airplane. Try using a 2010 laptop on a 2010 airplane.
