Here are a couple of pictures I thought I would share for the younger viewers in the crowd..
MY FIRST CELL 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
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
Good old Logitech!
376 x240 px and grayscale only
(link for info from Wikipedia: FOTOMAN)
One of my first Printers (about $2000)
This was a behemoth of a printer – about 30 lbs and relatively noisy
