Been wondering about this for a while.   Just one of those odd childhood


When I was a kid growing up in Oakville, Ontario, I remember Oakville Mall
getting one of those very early mall directory computers.  This would have
been like, 1982-84, somewhere thereabouts.  From what I remember, they had
kind of CGA-sh graphics and a chiclet 'keyboard' you used to browse the
directory.  I'm wondering, were they just PCs, most likely?  Or some kind of
custom job?
