The Case For The Good, Old Fashioned Typewriter
from the it-works-when-the-power-is-off? dept
Some of us actually learned to type on a good old fashioned typewriter, so I still have a place in my heart for typewriters. However, it’s been many, many years since I’ve been near one. However, some people still enjoy pecking away on a typewriter and when you hear their reasoning, it makes some amount of sense. They talk about one guy who points out that he “bought his manual typewriter in 1977 for $75. He’s never had to upgrade. It’s never crashed or caught a virus. The annual maintenance cost is about $6 for new ribbons.” Of course, that assumes the computer is only a replacement for a typewriter – which is a pretty simplistic way of looking at it. Still, if it serves your purposes, more power to you.
