IBM ELECTROMATIC, a.k.a. “Inky": described by Five Novels Monthly editor Florence McChesney, as “sounding like a machine gun,” this early IBM electric caused no small degree of problem for Ron’s neighbors on New York’s Riverside Drive. Continually generating radio-interfering static, Ron’s “Inky” soon received a visit from representatives of the local electrical company, “with their cute little radio detector device, a little antenna coming out of it, and they says, ‘Ah ha!’” The Electromatic was then promptly issued a static suppressor.
