Trending: Amazon Go automated retail store handles a crowd on opening morning — and the only line was outside

This week’s GeekWire Podcast features another installment of our popular Name that Tech Tune Contest. As prizes this week, we have limited-edition GeekWire laptop stickers to give out people who get the answer correct.

Can you identify the computer being advertised in the audio clip below? If you think you know, send an email to, and also include your mailing address so we can send you a sticker if you’re right.

As we mentioned on the show, there are tons of clues in the ad — including the year, the memory and the process of elimination that comes from the ad naming all of the competing computers. Even the background music should be a clue for anyone who was around at the time.

Here’s the full segment with me, John and the UW’s Ed Lazowska — who was stumped, much to my surprise — if you want to hear the entire context and discussion.

Also be sure to check out the full version of this week’s podcast, with guest Ed Lazowska from the UW.
