Typewriters

On the back of the social media withdrawal and SOPA memes have you ever searched for ‘typewriter’ on ebay?

I just did, and there’s scads of them at fairly substantial prices, meaning people must buy them, but who?

I can sort of just about see that if you had a writing hut out in the bush with no power you might keep one just in case, but a solar panel, a couple of old car batteries, an inverter and a laptop seems like a whole lot better, especially given the advantages of wordprocessing software
