So Much for That Technology

I see that it will no longer be possible to purchase a new typewriter in the future, as the only remaining typewriter factory in the world has ceased production.

As we are all no doubt aware, this is because pretty much no one has wanted to purchase a new typewriter in many years.

I certainly haven't. I used one a few times as a kid, for fun, but I was already working on a computer by the time I needed to write papers for school, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Word processing is a mighty gift to the scholar.

Still, it makes one feel a little wistful, doesn't it? You served us well over the years, oh typewriter, and we salute you.

I was alerted to this news by Why Evolution is True and 4&20 Blackbirds.
