“Someday, in the comfort of your home, you’ll be able to shop and book electronically, read instantly updated newswires, analyze the performance of a stock that interests you, send electronic mail across the country, then play Bridge with three strangers in LA, Chicago and Dallas. … $5.00 per hour.”

Tightly spaced ITC Avant Garde Gothic for text — not the easiest ad to read. But that was the norm from the late ’60s to early ’80s. Also, the future is white with extreme turtlenecks.
