    Can't sleep, so I thought I make a thread about the technology firsts in my life. This might seem ancient to the youngsters. :p



    My first cable was WHT. It required a brown box and an antenna outside the window, for only one cable channel.

    My first game console was Atari 7800. I still remember playing Food Fight and Dig Dug.

    My first game that saved data was the first Legend Of Zelda on Nintendo. I think it was the very first game that saved data.

    My first Desktop PC was an IBM. It had a soft floppy and hard disk. Don't recall the exact model. But it looked just like this ......

    My first internet experience was with Compuserve, Prodigy, and AOL. They all had trial periods for like 20 hours, so I tried them all until they expired. I convinced my mother to pay for AOL service which was the best at that time.

    Before portable digital cameras, these were good enough for me.

    My first smartwatch. Yup, I had one of these. Was able to store contact numbers on it too. This Casio watch still holds a place in my heart.

    My first cordless home phone ..... Seemed like everyone had this AT&T model back then, and you would hear your neighbor's conversations. :D

    Great idea for a thread!

    My first video game console was the good old Atari 2600 - the earlier model with three switches per side.

    First computer was an old Atari 600XL - with a cassette drive! :eek:

    The first computer I ever used was a TRS-80 Model 3. My high school had some of those. Some old Kaypro suitcase systems, too. Ah, the memories!
