Kemners Surplus - Real time walkthrough

Simple databases were also a killer app. I still recall a small stamp/coin 
shop firing up a C64 to look for inventory in the early/mid 80's.

I hated using a typewriter for school reports so when I purchased a C64 in 
the 80's I used that for reports. The only thing an electronic word 
processor had over a C64 was a very nice display (monochrome) compared to a 
TV for the C64. I forget if the printers on those things were dot matrix or 
actual characters.

I can remember sitting in discussions about "killer apps" (they may have
not been called that), but word processing, spreadsheet and the basic
accounting (AP, AR, GL, Payroll and Inventory) suite were essentially
the way you sold a business computer.
