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.
