eBay: Popular Electronics January 1975

On eBay is a Popular Electronics Magazine from January 1975, which has a famous article about the Altair 8800 in it.

Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia (whole article): "A cover story on Popular Electronics could launch a new product or company. The most famous issue, January 1975, had the Altair 8800 computer on the cover and this ignited the home computer revolution. Paul Allen showed that issue to Bill Gates. They wrote a BASIC interpreter for the Altair computer and started Microsoft."
