Magazine Ads

I am no longer active in this hobby for the foreseeable future. 
I will no longer maintain or update the website, but I will leave it accessible to the web for as long as possible (years).

The Digital Group Advertisements & Magazine Articles

The Digital Group had some very eye pleasing advertisements which ran in a variety of magazines. All but one of the scans below are from the pages of Byte Magazine. Since Byte was the leading computer magazine of the time, they were usually the first to get the new ad copy--I have not verified this in every case, but it is a reasonable assumption. In short, it is possible these ads might have run somewhere else first. The date shown below each is the earliest date that the ad appeared, but not every scan is from that particular issue.

Their were only three ads I am aware of (again, not an exhaustive search on my part) that did not run in the pages of Byte, and only one is included below. This one is from Popular Electronics. PE also ran a variation of this same ad, but with the cutout on the right side of the page--I couldn't find my tattered copy, February of 1977 if I recall. The third was in color, text from "Meet The Digital Group" (PE, March 1977) with color photo like the one that ran in Byte, January of 1978. I know I have it somewhere...

I have also included several articles written by the DG folks and one article written specifically about about DG. Since these were written as part of an advertising strategy (except for one) , they are included here.

If I run across an ad that differs notably from this collection, I will scan it and add it later--but for now, this is it! :) --Enjoy.
