There are no illegitimate children...only illegitimate parents.

Panasonic Q

Back when they were new there was a business in Hong Kong that was selling them modified so they could play any region DVDs or GameCube discs. Their end came because they also sold modified PlayStations and Sony had a few of their European offices file suit.

A whopping 7 inches television for $100 ($1500 in 2021) [1945]

Probably only a couple channels, and only within the city.

My neighbor's dad had 2-3 early televisions in the attic. One was similar to that, but the cabinet was considerably larger--at least three feet tall. Tiny screen. Also had one with a round screen.

And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

What did ever become of that Jean-Louis Gassee?

Dumb labeling for sure, but the hand cleanser is 80% alcohol by volume?

Yikes. Don't light a match near that.
