'Wired' features vintage tech ads

Wired has posted a feature of the 11 Best Vintage Tech Commercials (why 11? Is this some sorta Spinal Tap reference?). No. 1, of course, is Apple's "1984," but it's actually more fun to see some completely cheesy ads touting computers with 64K. Speaking of which, the spot above features William Shatner—before he began to trade in self-parody—talking up the Commodore Vic-20, which he touts as "the wonder computer of the 1980s!" Enjoy.
