Looking Back at Old Tech Items
By Richard Hay for Windows Observer
When it comes to tech I must admit I am a hoarder.
Technology advances at such a rapid pace these days it is easy to find yourself with lots of old tech. When you look back and see what tech was 5, 10, 15 years ago and beyond it can be quite a shock to see how far we have come.
I have drawers and boxes full of software, cables, hardware and other sundry tech items from past upgrades over the last couple of decades. I am sure many of you who read this site likely have similar boxes full of old tech.
As part of a project I am working on in my garage, the project being to clean it up, I have decided to go through all my old tech boxes and try to be hard core about finally clearing out some old stuff.
As I was clearing out the boxes I was sharing pictures of some of the items on Twitter and decided this post would be a nice stroll down tech memory lane.
Here is something you just do not see anymore – a 10GB hard drive! I think my first PC in the early 90’s had a 200MB hard drive and just 4MB of RAM.
