Ayo Technology











I recently encountered a cache of old computer discs in a remote corner of my basement. Although my handwriting was scrawled across many of the items, I scarcely recall using this outdated format. Did I really manage magazine layout with the aid of these flimsy discs? It serves as a valuable reminder that the giants of today- from Apple to Microsoft- could easily become the Tandys of tomorrow.

    Oh, ouch! Me, too. You don't want to know how many ancient Macs I cleared out when the old warehouse closed. But at least the tidy little eBay profit was mine to keep. One man's trash....

    My father claims he can still do all the calculations by hand but I saw his slide rule on his desk.

    damn, but that was a silly era.
