Hands-On With the IBM 5150

I love this quote from Danielle Venton:

Klein’s 5150 made him a more capable thinker. My Air made me a faster consumer of media. I’m not about to trade in the Mac, but as I watch Klein’s easy competence while he replaces a blown video card and recalls his early programming days, I’m left with a slight twinge of jealousy. I wonder if technology hasn’t robbed me of some of its full experience in making things too easy for me.

The entire article, while somewhat light in content, describes a nostalgic journey that I hope most feel when they are confronted with "aging" technology.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
