    That story was 3 days after my 7th Birthday.

    It would be funny to go back in time and tell them the concept of the internet and personal computers as common as the television.

    I bet most didn't have a remote control for their television sets at that time either.

    When I was little we didnt even have rotary. We'd pick it up the receiver and the operator would say that famous phrase "Number please" ....I was little then and she used to scare me. I was afraid if I got the number wrong she would yell at me. hahahahahahaa. And phone numbers started with a word. Ours was "Clearwater"

    Oh, I'd forgotten those days. I remember one ad in the New York area ... Don't remember the product or company, but the number was "MU7-0700. That's Murray Hill seven, oh seven hundred".

    And MY TRS-80 (which is still in the back of some closet) was the model prior to the one of the "Home Computer Owner" in the vid. The hard drive was a cassette tape player. **sigh**
