TIME Magazine - Bill Gates

Putting out a collection of TIME Magazine covers I dug up a while ago. Wow, the memories...

(and in case you're worried that this violates some draconian DMCA rule, just imagine you're looking over a pile of magazines at your dentist's office.)

That's a bit alarming - do you have pictures of him on your wall?

Just kidding...

Actually it's smart to save those mags - could be worth a lot in years to come .

What's amazing to me is to go back and read some of the predictions and claims that are made. Scientific American is another one like that. Hilarious, really.

Those certainly will be worth money in the years to come.

I remember the old floppy discs (shown in cover 1) and thought we were in "Storage Heaven" when we could actually get a whole whopping 360 KB on to one of those (yes not a typo 360 KB).

Cheers

lol and i know some people that still have those disks...
and he has a win 95 machine still running...
even more suprising with a 486 (as i remember it had a turbo button)...
last time i saw that thing was in 08...
i believe it took 5-7 minutes just to boot it up to the desktop..
but to give it some slack its one of the only computers that bios has a gui (and you could even use a mouse to click and interact with it (it was a serial mouse)...)

I remember my first machine was a 386sx 33 (yes you read it right, 33MHz) 80MB hard drive & 4MB memory. I remember being so excited when I got Windows 3.11 to replace Windows 3.1 I even overclocked it to 35MHz & WOW did I notice the difference.

Also, when storage went from 5 1/4" 360Kbto 3.5" 1.44MB i couldn't believe how much space there was.

Those were the days

I used to use TI-99 in the early 80s and then was one of the first people ever online when AOL was called Q-Link for the C-64 lol.

Texas Instruments TI-99/4A - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia CPU = TI TMS9900 @ 3.0 MHz It would load software from standard cassette tapes I tell you! And you'd hear it too, almost like a dial-up modem sound. The first 16 bit pc for home use.

Never had a Windows machine though until Windows 98.
