Intently tuning in on you

BUZZWORD! GETCHA BUZZWORDS! CUTTING EDGE AND FUNKY FRESH! CAN’T START A CONSUMER CULTURE PARADIGM SHIFT WITHOUT YOUR BUZZWORDS!

I notice this sidebar from A Retailer’s Guide to Home Video Merchandising in the August 28, capsule 1982 issue of Billboard left out the crucially important “planned obsolescence,” “bubble economy,” and “they threw a tarp over the sign at the Blockbuster Video in the Square and it’s now a payday loans place.”

Recommended listening: Stream a little dream for me.

    I love how software is likened to razors apart from any further exposition into the basis for that comparison. Clearly this was written for salespeople by their own ilk.

    I love how the Floppy Disc stores ‘massive amounts of data’ !
