The recent talk about terminals reminded me of a terminal I evaluated
sometime around 1979. I think it was by Tandberg, but I could be
wrong--all I remember is that it was of Swedish manufacture. Probably one
of the nicest terminals I'd ever seen. Everything on it was ergonomically
engineered. The screen could be positioned any way you could imagine; the
keytops were colored according to function and the contrast of the display
was controlled. The other thing I recall is that it was one of the most
expensive terminals I'd ever run across. The Volvo of terminals.
Anyone care to fill me in on what the thing was--and if anyone ever used
them. Tandberg sticks in my mind because the same salesman dropped off a 9
track tape drive for evaluation that was definitely a Tandberg.
