Holy Crap, Email Was Scary in the 1970s!

In case you weren't aware, email humbly began as some sort of paranormal force whose sole objective was to materialize out of thin air and terrify middle-aged businessmen.

BB Gadgets posted this Honeywell ad for email, which seems to be from 1977 or thereabouts. Seeing the type of damage email was doing back then, I can understand why it took another 25 years to attract a mainstream following. Enlisting the services of that friendly, nonthreatening AOL man was a much better marketing strategy. [Boing Boing Gadgets]
