The shot of the IBM 029 with the logo carefully taped over with a 
"HONEYWELL" sticker is pretty funny.  Given that (as evidenced by the 
closing credits) the whole setup was provided by Honeywell, there was 
no way that the name "IBM" would ever be permitted to appear in the 
film.

In one shot of the machine room, there is visible a bank of tape 
drives on the other side of a window.  Anyone know what they are?
