A couple of my first tech purchases

Category:Day To Day Thoughts,Software & Hardware

Here are a couple of pictures I thought I would share for the younger viewers in the crowd..

MY FIRST CELL PHONE

Motorola Cellular phone

This phone could slide into holding/connection bracket under my truck seat and handset would plug into a jack on my dashboard as well as being carry-able. BTW – NOT light

It was actually a very good phone – reliable and clear.

 

MY FIRST COMPUTER

TRS-80 Model I

No Hard Drive, No Floppies – Just a cassette deck that would load and save programs ( analog of course ) You had to fast forward to get to the program or data you needed! I taught myself Visual Basic on this dinosaur.

Visicalc (excel precursor)  an amazing program that I think made computers the most useful to most people and businesses.

 

MY FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA

Logitech Fotoman

Fotoman

 

Good old Logitech!

376 x240 px and grayscale only

One of my first Printers (about $2000)

This was a behemoth of a printer – about 30 lbs and relatively noisy
