Interesting situation for DSE, industry rumours suggest 2 major suppliers have ended their terms of trade with them (or rather, indicated they will not renew terms of trade which have expired).

Not surprised at all. If your brand/products are popular and are already widely distributed, it is beyond me why anyone would want to deal with that brand.

It would even serve as a small bonus to the retailers who actually pay their bill, now they have less competition.

I love the range of "business software" available for System 80 on the last page: Word Processing, Payroll, Invoicing, Accounts Receivable/Payable, Mailing...   Pig Farm Management.

Apart from bad posture and an unhealthy interest in that little girl?  I'd guess it's some kind of early programmable calculator, but I'm still trying to find something that matches it.

Hopefully just interested in selling a high profit item to the little girl! And yes it does look like sort of calculator type gadget. Time Google got with this upload a picture of something and Google will search a billion picture database and spit out the answer. Would have been good for that other thread with the telecommunications mystery object.

This is Dick Smith not Rolf Harris. There is no reason for this topic to degenerate into that line of jokes.

Unfortunately, if you follow the link to the catalogue it only shows about four pages of product info. If you could find a version of the entire catalogue it would probably be in there.

Lots of the display wall of tvs at glenfield were off and no prices on them. Perhaps a sign that they dont even have the rights to sell the display one?
