    Wow!

    I can remember buying my first PC (IBM PC XT) in 1983 with a 10mb hard drive and 320kb of RAM. How far we have come!

    I remember word processing

    I remember Microsoft Word was able to fit onto a floppy disk, now you need more than 55 of those (64MB, MS Office 2008 core elements) just to hold the program. Is it running faster? Yes, in many ways. Is it slower? Of course, some functions are way slower. Have we gained much on the MS Office front? Not much.

    Remember 2002 iMac & PowerBook G4 Ti.

    The Flat Panel iMac max memory was 1GB PC133 and I believe the PowerBook G4 Titanium 667MHz & 800MHz was 512MB. That was memorable to me because that's when Apple comeback started me move to Apple.
