We called it the Trash-80. Using Azimov as a spokesperson was brilliant.
That particular TRS-80 was a re-badged Sharp. It had a quirky but compact dialect of BASIC, in which I had a few dreams.
One time, a troop of nerds went over to a conference in Japan, and the party favours were palm-top computers like those, but in Japanese. Oriental inscrutability level ten.

I want one!
Is that the one that had low-level radioactive material?
Yep. I researched it because I thought it was a hoax. It was quite real. It was removed from the market not for safety reasons, but because at $50, most families back then couldn't afford to buy one for Jr., so they didn't sell well.
My parents often tell me about adivertisments shown on TV in former Yugoslavia, but I'm not very interested in them.

Personally, the one that makes my jaw drop is the one where he's dressed in fencing gear when asking if Wontkins wants Wilkins coffee. When Wontkins doesn't want any, the next scene is Wilkins cleaning what looks like blood off his sword with the words "Some learn, some don't".
The implication that he killed Wontkins for not wanting coffee (in that advert at least) is pretty messed up.
