From the book, "Shatner Rules: Your Guide to Understanding the Shatnerverse and the World at Large", by William Shatner, Dutton (a member of the Penguin Group), New York, c. 2011:
p. 142, "Don't get me wrong, I understand technology, but often I can't do technology. I get the mechanics, but I'm not that mechanical. I mean, I understand how to change a tire, but I usually call AAA when a tire needs to be changed."
p. 143-144, "I've been keeping it a secret for years, especially from the good people in advertising who employ me on occasion. In fact, if you visit YouTube (hopefully someone will show me how to do that soon), you can see me singing the praises of the Commodore VIC-20, 'the wonder computer of the eighties,' promising 'great games' and opportunities for 'the whole family to learn computing.' All for the bargain price of 'under three hundred dollars.' (You can get one of these VIC-20s on eBay for about ninety bucks now. Apparently, the wonders of this wonder computer ceased pretty quickly.)"
p. 145, "Oh yes, did I mention '$#*! My Dad Says [television show]? Thirty years ago, I was on the cutting edge of the 'wonder computer of the eighties,' and then I was on the first television show spun off a Twitter feed."
