Electric Pencil

Electric Pencil (also known as The Electric Pencil) was the first word processor written for a microcomputer. The original version was created by Michael Shrayer and released for the MITS Altair in December 1976. The TRS‑80 version was released almost two years later and it dominated the market until the introduction of Scripsit.

Computer User

Computer User was a short-lived TRS‑80 magazine created by the publishers of Interface Age, a popular computer magazine that began in 1976.

Unlike many other TRS‑80 magazines, Computer User was a professional, glossy publication from its first issue in November 1983. It was heavily promoted, with promotional copies of the premiere issue sent to subscribers of competing magazines.
