See Ya, Typewriters :(

Typewriters have obviously been a dying breed for years, but now they’re just dead.

“Godrej and Boyce – the last company left in the world that was still manufacturing typewriters – has shut down its production plant in Mumbai, India with just a few hundred machines left in stock.” – Daily Mail

As a journalist, i have a soft spot for all writing devices, so here is my ode to typewriters:

– Mashable’s story

– Everything you could ever want to know (or not want to know) about typewriters: Wikipedia

– Audrey Hepburn singing “moonriver” in Breakfast at Tiffany’s (my fav.)¬† wouldn’t be the same without the clicking of the typewriter keys in the beginning.
