Computer and Internet history

Do you remember the "good old days"? When you look back, you'll think all those things were stupid. Remember that, back then, it was all high-tech material. Remember installing a program using several floppy disks?

Here is a short funny list from the computer and internet history.

Old hardware

Predictions from the past

A clip from 1969 with predictions on how the future computer would look like and what is now known as the internet.

There are other predictions from the past.

The future

"The future is now". Well, it still isn't at its best, check out a video about Microsoft Vista.

Final thought

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
And if you had a 3 1/2 inch floppy
You hoped nobody found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for awhile!

Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut - you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu!

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead!

Do you have more predictions for the future?
