When a world needs a hero

The other day, I was browsing some scans of 30-year-old issues of InfoWorld magazine. As one does. And I happened upon one of the very first advertisements for Norton AntiVirus:

What a different world it was back then!


The ad is from the inside front cover of the March 11, 1991 issue:


Side note from the Because Everything Is Terrible Department: A number of the InfoWorld scans, including this one, have errors. The links above actually go to the March 4 issue (or at least most of it), but it has the March 11 cover in front of it. The same error is present at both the Internet Archive, and Google Books. If it’s been corrected by the time you read this, my links might not work right.
