Do You Remember Your First?

Computer. Your first COMPUTER. Actually, not YOUR first computer, but do you remember your first experience with a computer? Where were you? How old were you?  And so forth.

I can remember my first experiences with a PC in primary school. Playing around on an Apple ][,  Using big floppy disks and playing Oregon Trail. Such a classic game. I also remember getting my very own computer from my grandmother. This thing was sooooo cool to me. I had to plug it into my television and type in all of the code that was in the manual to make programs work. It was the Mattel Aquarius PC

My momz later got  computer/word processor. I think it was an old Packard Bell. What I remember about it was teaching myself how to type with the typing tutor program. All of this was in the 80's and early 90's. 

College was a different story as I saw the internet for the first time. WOW. Freakin' IMAGES on the computer screen! I remember the first thing I searched for on the "web crawler" search engine was "Green Bay Packers." This popped up a list of different stories and a picture of Brett Favre. My mind was blown.

This video below is from the Fine Brothers. They did a great job asking kids TODAY to look at a computer from the days of yore. The video almost makes me feel old. Lol! Check it out. Leave a comment below with your first computer experience. Thanks for reading, commenting and sharing this with others!
