On TV C-Span channel, I saw an interview with an astronaut who said the iPhone in his pocket has 400,000 times the computing power of the Lunar Lander in which he flew down and landed on the surface of the Moon.

Flash git with his triple monitor set up. I bet they didn't anticipate how people would use a Computerised Communications Console connected to an internet.. Facebook would never have taken off back then. And don't get me started on internet trolls.

Yep I also watched Tomorrows World. Great program in it's time.

I noticed the make of the office equipment was Philco. Brought me out in a sweat remembering their Codenter range of TV's in the 60's. Ahead of there time but so unreliable. Try changing the neutralising capacitor in the Fireball tuner they used. Nightmare job.

We had an expensive Mullard valve tester but it was quicker just to try a new valve. Anyway what was wrong with tapping it with a screwdriver :)
