Typing Shop Abu Dhabi
Today, the last type writer manufacturer shuts up shop http://www.metro.co.uk/tech/861749-worlds-last-typewriter-factory-ends-production .
In 1985 I was the envy of the staff room as a proud owner of an electric typewriter, it even had an auto correct white ribbon. By1987 I was programming wordstar or some other package to get better results out of a personal computer. I don't miss inky fingers - but they were really clever bits of engineering.
