Long Before Bits and Bytes Hit

Ah yes things were simpler then and its not that long ago. The first mass market personal computer, the Commodore, was introduced in January 1977  followed in quick succession in the same year by Apple and then Radio Shack’s TRS-80.

The world before Bits and Bytes

Memory was something you lost with age
An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano
A web was a spider’s home
A virus was the flu
A CD was a bank account

A hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
