In the 1980's Annie, didn't Oliver Warbucks have a phone in his helicopter
car from the 1930s? Maybe I'm remembering it wrong.

I miss games like ADVERTURE.
In that case the cable coming out of the gamepad is more important than
gamepad itself because without the cable the
signals from your fingers
never get to the computer.
No, I'm not serious, and neither so do I take the assertion above. My
is meant to be as dumb as Ben's.
Well for stupid stuff, I claim the Smart phone is not needed at all.
Just all marketing by APPLE and JAPAN. I think more game pads have sold
than smart phones. You are half right, you can by a new game pad but will
it plug in to the old machine, like a C64.
PS: Mobile phones have long been around,as analog devices,for those that
really need them.
PPS. I have two phones and they have bell and number pad and a long cord.
PPPS. The same goes for wifi, not really needed since the USB no
computer had real I/O devices to connect mice,printers,networks.
