Electronic Newspaper circa 1981

I try to explain it to my kids: no, everyone did not have a computer when I went to college. In fact, almost no one had computers when this news report was filed in 1981.
Of the estimated two to three thousand home computer owners in the Bay Area...
Wow: sometimes even I forget how dark the dark ages were. There are probably more than 100 computers on the little street I live on, not counting iPods, cellphones, Priuses and other specialized computing devices.

I do wonder how the newspaper street vendor at the end of the piece is doing these days, though.
