> GE used black on their computers

Ever see one of those black computers from Hell and Bowel, that seem just 
like an Apple?

B&H was able to get away with a bluish color for their 500 series 
Filmosound projectors, but it was an uphill battle after the JANs and 
then the brown suitcases of the 200 and 300 series.

School boards would rubber-stamp B&H equipment, but form committees before 
accepting something like an Apple.  UNTIL they got established.
