2007 Calgary Sun Computer Ads.

All right, another nine years takes us to this half-page in the Calgary Sun last week. Notice the ad format hasn't changed much in 18 years, it's a literary form like the murder mystery with a certain classic style. But also notice that none of the price numbers in the starbursts are four digits long - and the laptops and desktops are no longer so far apart, portability is only a slight premium now.
