Comics with an Electronics Theme

February 1967 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Here are a couple more tech-themed comics from a vintage electronics magazine (Popular Electronics). The one from page 101 reminds me again about how different the world of retail sales is today compared to just two short decades ago. Prior to the advent of online marketing and sales, you either walked into a brick and mortar (a term rarely heard before the Internet era) type store and walked out with your purchased product, or you thumbed through a catalog and placed an order either by mail or telephone. Most people opted to pay for a postage stamp rather than pay the long distance phone charge (a term rarely heard today). Free overnight or 2-day shipping from many e-stores makes online shopping nearly as instantaneous as walking into a store. People under 20 years old have never known much different, but some old-timers still find the paradigm change strange. The way things are going, in a few more years people will be talking about how people younger than __ years old have never known a time when everyone had to walk around with a mask covering his face. Enjoy the comics (there's a huge list of others at the bottom).

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
