What's a "manual typewriter", anyway?

It's great when new technology can be used to decipher completely obsolete technology.
Eh, on second look it appears that the article was referring to keyboards on computers, mainly. I must have obsolete technology on the brain.

It wouldn't surprise me, actually, if top secret communications were still typed on older electric typewriters. The elite cadre of 80-year-old Pentagon secretaries is iron clad, and from what I hear those redoubtable ladies practically sleep with their clunky IBM Selectrics rather than let them out of sight or be replaced.
