"My husband wants a selenimum rectalfire, a silicode capasitator, and a 16 bome appleflyer." That is the caption of one of the "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh," comics that appeared in the June 1962 edition of Popular Electronics magazine. "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh" was a monthly feature for a couple years that dealt with stereotypical (pun intended) behavior of technophiles and their often unwilling, often unwitting wives, girlfriends, kids, parents, workmates, and neighbors.
