Specifically since 1985 when I got my first Mac – the Apple Macintosh.
It had 128k of RAM, the computer you’re reading this on probably has 2-4GBs of RAM. People built drafting programs, flight simulators, graphic programs with such little memory, thank about that.
My favourite Mac of all time was the LC 575, that’s my only photo of it, yes those are lipstick kisses, and that’s its system software install disc.
A close second would be my Powerbook 170.
My worst computer by far was my Umax. Remember that brief time when Apple allowed other companies to make the hardware and clones for their OS? I despised mine, spent more time fixing it than I did using it.
Then when the iMac came out and Apple gave out watches to test one at at their store. I wore that watch out.
SCSI! Remember when crazy computer language started infiltrating our everyday conversations… BubbleJet, DotMatrix, Midi, WYSIWYG….
I kept that connector, might turn it into a piece of jewellery.
Dark Castle, 1986.
The world’s biggest floppy.
I originally had four, which I framed and displayed like art, then over the years I gave away three.
I have no idea what’s on the discs, they’re from a military base in the 90s. I should just say it holds a copy of the world’s first computer virus ha, that’s kind of hot, eh.
