RIP Typewriter: 1867 – 2011

The first commercial typewriter was produced in the U.S. in 1867. This revolutionary machine changed the way that people worked and conducted business. I remember playing on my grandmother’s typewriter when I was younger. Unfortunately, in this digital age of Apple’s and PC’s, this technology has now become obsolete. Today, the last remaining typewriter company closed its manufacturing plant in Mumbai. Tonight lets all toast the typewriter, and remember – if you still have a typewriter you now own a piece of history 🙂

    Apparently they just found out that there is still one resistant producer…there better be, because my country will shot down without the old machine..sad enough but it is true 🙂
