Time Magazine's free crapgadgets of the 1980s

Harry McCracken from Time Magazine sez, "Back in the 1980s, TIME magazine sold subscriptions via TV ads–'Hi, I'm Judy, an operator here at TIME'–and sealed the deal by offering free tech gadgets such as phones, clocks and cameras. The commercials live on via YouTube; I've rounded up a bunch of them, complete with the quaint, silly, sometimes cheesy gizmos we gave away."

Shown to the right, "the incredibly compact TIME Micro Headset Radio with crystal-clear fidelity, hideaway headphones."
