Typewriters ?  Carbon paper ?  Mimeograph ? Rotary phones ?  A Secretary who could take shorthand ?
 An Answering service ? Orange CRT monitors ? Elevator operators ?
Remember any of these ?

There's something to be said for old tech: if done right, it can last centuries. Title/deed documents, contracts, constitutions, etc. are best put to something more permanent than the latest document file format! And a good typewriter might last you decades rather than the latest upgrade cycle for say, Apple's gadgets.

Well they have survived thousands of years buried in middle eastern deserts - how long will an iPad last in comparison?

I can't see the video on that link, but if it is the "Blond typist goes back to work after many years" one that I sent to my blond daughter a while back, she thought it was very sexist and didn't take kindly to it at all.

I am a blonde and fully appreciated it and played it over and over and laughed till it hurt...and then sent it to everyone I know that would appreciate it.  Grin

We ( men ) were all sexist ( and the woman expected it ) until they started to call ' Secretaries ' Administrative Assistants "

for those old enough to appreciate it.

Another way to say that is "old enough to know a meaning for carriage return which isn't byte oriented."
