I've begun as a home business the publishing of a monthly newsletter
for people who have an interest in home computers but know little or
nothing about them.  You are probably too sophisticated for this
newsletter, but you have friends who would enjoy reading it.

The newsletter is called The HOME COMPUTER Newsletter.  Without a
lot of technical jargon and buzz words, it will bring the following:

  o price information
  o quality information
  o new product announcements
  o trends from the computer industry
  o information for new users to help them feel comfortable with their
    new systems and to learn how to use the systems more effectively.
  o my opinions and recommendations about home computer matters.
  o answers to questions, etc.

The first issue, which is a pre-subscription issue (subscriptions begin
in October), discusses the following topics:

  o Welcome to the Newsletter
  o What the Newsletter will contain
  o The home computer market
  o News flashes
  o Protection from lightning
  o What are home computers?
  o Some good reading
  o Price trends
  o In the next issue (news flashes, what to do with a home computer, how
    to select a home computer, should you buy mail order or from a store,
    and should you buy a "complete package" or individual components.)

If you feel your friends would be interested in looking at the paper,
please pass this information on.  The yearly subscription is $7.00 in
the USA and Canada.  A sample issue can be obtained by sending 25 cents
and a stamped self addressed envelope.  The address is:
