During this past week we were doing some demographic research on the site and discovered something very interesting -- the majority of Apple World Today readers are over 35 years of age, which means that most of you were born after 1980. Well, Dennis and Steve are both just a bit older than that, so we thought it would be fun to talk about "ancient technology".
What's an ancient technology? Anything that either doesn't exist anymore or that has morphed into something so completely different than what we were used to during our respective youths that it would be unrecognizable to most people today.
Today we covered a number of technologies; next week we'll finish up with a few more. Here are some fun links you can follow to get some information about some of these things -- especially if you want to believe that they really existed and we're not making them up!
Rotary Dial Telephones
Named telephone exchanges
Early cell phones (Motorola DynaTac Classic II was what Steve had)
Black & White TV
Smith Corona Coronet 12 Electric Typewriter
Kingspoint SC-40 (Steve's first scientific calculator in college)
