    In 1969 my brother was a Systems Analyst, and worked on an IBM System 360 Model 70. Just for fun last night I looked up some Google Imagery on that beast. I am not sure when micro computers first hit the DIY scene, but I believe it was long after that. As for me, I got my first "pc" in 1978, a TRS-80 Model 1 with a whopping 4K of RAM and a cassette deck for program and data storage. :D

    We are dating ourselves here. :p

    My first "video game" was none other than the original Pong! :D Circa 1976 I think.

    My first cell phone, which I still have here, was a Motorola bag phone we bought around 1990. It used the same gigundous battery that our first camcorder used (a Panasonic shoulder mounted model) so that was a plus. Of course that phone was no more than a telephone back then.

    I recently read that someone was going to ressurect the design of those old "brick" style cell phones (the ones that looked like military walkie talkies held to your ear) and put modern 3G guts in them, just as something nostalgic.

    Which model TRS-80 did you have? I eventually got the expansion interface and "Level II" with the 16K memory upgrade for my Model 1.
