This is a fascinating “How did they do it” from 1947. The movie features all of the moving parts for a book to be produced and mass-manufactured. I found the “type setter” job fascinating. I remember going to “Blackcreek Pioneer Village” and hand typsetting a small poem onto paper. It was a real pain. I […]
Directly responding to Apple’s campaign is weak. It’s playing Pepsi to Apple’s Coke, Burger King to Apple’s McDonald’s. It’s an explicit acknowledgement that Microsoft is the second-place brand.
