William Shatner and the Commodore VIC-20 (1982):
Am I only the one who thinks of William Shatner sitting in front of a Commodore VIC-20 saying, "MUST ... HAVE ... MORE ... RAM!!!"?
Shatner's TV ads for the "Wonder Computer of the 1980s"
were about as cheesy as the Commodore's graphics — and I'm not talking hip, self-referential cheesy, just cheesy.
I wonder if Shatner's Commodore gig had anything to do with that Commodore PET in Star Trek II. If they still use those in 2285, the future isn't as bright as I'd hoped.
