Telephone stock quotes

In 1964, the Am-Quote system capable of giving subscribing stock brokers automated voice quotes over the telephone was described in Time magazine. It replaced the need to search paper tape. A computer built by Teleregister Corp. stored the stock quotation information from the floor of New York's American Stock Exchange. A stock's code numbers could be dialled by the broker, and the computer responded by repeating the stock's code letters and the latest information including bid price, high and low. The voice of Walter Jennison, a Teleregister Corp. engineer, was recorded for a machine vocabulary of 57 words and letters on a revolving magnetic drum. The computer extracted a sequence of these pre-recorded words to report the stock data.«

A blonde was hard up for money...

A blonde was hard up for money, so she walked around her neighborhood, trying to find a job.
She met a nice man who said he would give her work. All she had to do was paint his porch white. He gave her a bucket of paint and left.
He walked into his house, laughing. He told his brunette wife what he had done. "Frank, our porch covers half of the house! You're so mean." his wife replied. Three hours later, the blonde went in the house, and gave the bucket of white paint back to the man.
The astonished man handed her a $100 bill, and asked how she finished it so quickly.
"It takes time, but it was easy." was her reply. "Oh, and it's a Ferrari, not a Porsche."
