Ah typewriters. Let me count the ways.
One at home. (a Royal?)
One Smith Corona portable at college.
Had a job at college working on a MTST machine (first word processor, Selectric typewriter attached to a basic floor unit computer).
Still using the portable Smith Corona in grad school.
Got an electric one one with replaceable ribbon/ white out ribbon in cartridges for home use and first journalism job. (husband used it to write long antique MG T series articles)
Bought another one when husband destroyed the first because his article wasn't working out and he had to retype pages and pages of it.
Then our first computer -- Comodore 64 with dot matrix printer. Wrote many stories and my first published book on it.
Then the First Apple computer. (my husband would carry it back and forth to work)
Then the first iMac (green) with the first laser printer and after that it's been iMacs all the way.
Okay, that's the history of typing/ computing.
