Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Dave Harbaugh did a number of different humorous features for Popular Electronics magazine back in the 1960s and '70s (see list at bottom of page). "Hobnobbing with Harbaugh" was one of the more popular comic series he did. Article topics ranged from husband-wife relationships where the husband is an ├╝ber-enthusiastic technophile of some sort and the wife has to put up with his crazy schemes and inventions. These comics poke fun at technical schools and colleges, and their alumni. My favorite is the "suicidal" waveform. I took the liberty of colorizing some of the comics.
