Harry writes: "In 1968, computers tended to occupy entire rooms, and were therefore hard to take with you. But Computerworld reported on Anderson Jacobson's 75-pound Teletype-terminal-in-a-case, an early attempt to let folks compute from anywhere. (Well, anywhere they had power and access to a telephone for the Teletype's acoustic coupler.) Wheels were optional."
