Are you keeping up with the Commodore - 'cause the Commodore is keeping up with you

Some cheesy chingle from a C64 ad in Australia. Probably somewhere on youtube...

I believe you are talking about this one.

Zenith “The Quality goes in before the name goes on”.

Pfft! Back in the day in early 1990's I had lot of repairs fixing Zenith computers than anything else. Even their flat CRT monitors had problems.

Even Zenith XT clone with cards in it was untouched since new had one IC with bent pin and crushed contact touching lightly that it works then intermittently give parity error. Took a schematic for it and recorded bunch of errors with helpful IC locations and saw a pattern, memory chips were fine since it gave many errors which are most unlikely place to change these, was found eventually to a TTL IC with this bent leg with crushed contact. Fixed these two made computer perfect.

Their sockets were cheap (single contact bent into V) instead of double contacts). Zenith designed PSUs for their computers likes to fail and burn parts out in big smoke few minutes later.

Cheers,

Great Northern aka Canada.

Guy's laughing in the background because the blonde carries that to work every day.
Everything is portable... if you have a truck.

Not really a computer quote, but about technology in general. I post it here, because it's timeless. Hope that's okay.

German writer Thomas Mann, who was on a trip (by ship) to America, was annoyed by the constantly repeating news (over radio) about an intoxicated zoo tiger.
In a letter to a friend he wrote:
"A technical marvel like radio telegraphy must serve
to carry such nonsense over land and waves .. Oh mankind ..
Their spiritual and moral progress had not kept pace with the technical.
It is left far behind." (translated)

As you may notice, this was an understanding of a person from two centuries ago.
Now we have un-social media, based on computer technology. But that intoxicated zoo tiger is still with us.

"Time, it seems, doesn't flow. For some it's fast, for some it's slow.
In what to one race is no time at all, another race can rise and fall..." - The Minstrel

OK I'm trying to be nice here but could you at least try and quote the images correctly? You've gotten the last 3 wrong so what's the freaking point even?

If it's broke, then fix it!

Yes, The posts don’t alway reflect what the commercial say.
The commercials elaborate more on the full meaning of the quotes.
