More Geekiness!


Okay, enough weirdness. Back to geeky stuff. If you're as old as me, you might have laid your hands on the first commercial computer that worked like the one under your fingertips. Well, that's not likely, no matter how old you are. Apple could not sell a lot of $10,000 computers in the early '80s, and hasn't tried since.

In many ways, the Apple Lisa still surpasses the junk we put up with today. It was far from perfect, due to the pokey CPUs of the late '70s. Still, if you've got an iPad or other iOS device, you can see its legacy continue in the guise of something you can fit into you backpack or pocket.


The Birth of Lisa…

And, Wiki's entry…
