What Was Life Like Before Computers

What life was like before computers.

  • Memory was something you personally had and lost with age.
  • An application was used to file for employment.
  • A program was a piece of paper you got at a play.\
  • A cusor was someone who used profanity.
  • A keyboard was what you found on a piano.
  • A virus was a medical problem.
  • A web was something a spider made.
  • A CD was a savings account.
  • A hard drive was a vacation driving through the mountains on a one lane road.
  • A mouse pad was its home.
  • Last but not least a 3 1/2 inch floppy ... Oh well.

It is amazing how quickly they have become an integral part of our lives and how we are all so familiar with computer terminology.

Nice post I was talking about this the other day. 10 years ago we had 1 computer and a cell phone and I did not text. Now multiple computers, lap tops, Ipads & Smart phones. I go no where without the World Wide Web.

There are still a few of us "old timers" around that remember the world before the Internet and all the computerized "stuff".  It seems that today you cannot live without some kind of computer gadget.  Funny how life changes...  Thanks for the blog.

Jane, my mother once asked my brother what he wanted for Christmas and my brother told her he wanted Windows. Mom called me wanting to know if I thought buying him windows for his house was a bit much for him to be asking for! LOL It took a while to explain Windows for a computer.

Growing up in Jamaica...COMPUTER was not a part of our language.  As a matter of fact, the first time I touched a computer, I was a student at Fairfield University, September 1980. That's almost 31 years ago.  The world of technology has definitely Changed.

  • synch
  • drivers
