Who Uses Typewriters Anymore?

C.G.P. Grey, one of my favorite YouTubers, included this video on the typewriter in his list of favorites. I have to agree. A fun look at a machine that revolutionized the world but is now almost gone.

That's vintage indeed. But let us not forget that it once helped us. And yea, still helping. Police stations are still using this thing and I guess it doesn't matter.

Good point. I'm sure there are a number of places where typewriters are still chugging along, even with the advent of online forms.

Mine sits here, covered up, waiting to be used. Maybe someday (but mine is electronic)....

I held onto mine until about three years ago. I kept thinking I'd use it, but I finally closed my eyes and sold it.

I would do so, but I have a typing business. There really could be an opportunity to use it for forms or envelopes. (I have some old customers!)
