- 40 years ago today, RadioShack gave us the TRS-80
By Harry McCracken - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
If you pressed me to name the most important year in the history of personal technology, I might come up with 1977. That’s the year that three groundbreakingly consumery personal computers were released. There was Apple’s Apple II and Commodore’s Pet 2001. And on August 3, 1977, RadioShack (née Radio Shack) unveiled its TRS-80 during a press conference at the Warwick Hotel in New York.
I cheerfully admit to having a bias in favor of the TRS-80, which I started using when my father brought one home in 1978. Even in its heyday, it had a reputation for being clunky snd unglamorous. But it outsold the sexier (and pricier) Apple II for years and was marketed in thousands of the Shack’s retail outlets at a time when Apple products were still available primarily in weird little mom-and-pop computer stores. To me, that makes it the most mainstream of the early PCs.
I had a lot more to say about the machine for a piece I wrote to mark its 35th anniversary in 2012. And here (via RadioShackCatalogs.com) is some imagery from the cover of the first TRS-80 catalog, back when anyone selling computers had to start by explaining what they could do.
- On “SNL,” Larry David Shows Perils Of Advertisers Desperate To Reflect Culture
By Jeff Beer - Monday Nov 6, 2017
“Saturday Night Live” spoofs the ad industry once again, showing how some stuff just doesn’t age well.
One of the inevitabilities of culture is that some things just don’t age well. Like the mullet, old episodes of Survivor, beauty pageants, The Jerry Springer Show, Zima . . . the list goes on and on. And it also includes plenty of commercials, because if advertisers are desperate for anything, it’s fitting in with culture. Saturday Night Live demonstrated as much with a pretty hilarious look at how some vintage (and totally fake) PSAs didn’t age so well.
- iPhone's Volume Slider No Longer Covers Videos in iOS 11
By Joe Rossignol - Wednesday Jun 7, 2017
iPhone users can finally cross one item off their wishlists: the volume slider no longer covers videos in iOS 11.

Now, when a user adjusts the volume while watching a video, a much smaller volume HUD appears in the top-right corner of the screen.
While the change is small, the user interface tweak was highly requested by many iPhone users for several years. On iOS 10 and earlier, the volume HUD intrusively pops up in the center of the screen for a few seconds after the volume is adjusted, unnecessarily covering the video content until it disappears.

Some third-party apps such as YouTube already had their own smaller volume HUD, and now the look is universal across iOS 11, as part of Apple's broader improvements to the native video player on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Apple introduced iOS 11 at its Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday. The first beta was seeded to registered developers later that day, to be followed by a public beta in late June. iOS 11 will be available as a free software update for all compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models around September.
