When I retired from large systems in the mid 90's, there was not much of an internet. And there were not many electronic cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, etc. around either. In my job I was connected with a terminal to several thousand large systems within the company, but that was only for inside the company.
At the time I walked past a PC shop every day, but could not see a need for such a box - especially as they were still quite expensive. So it took me until 2007 and Vista to buy the first PC.
Looking back, I was just wondering what you would do with your PC(s), if they took the internet and all the electronic gadgets away. Just curious.
