Today's youth are growing up with state-of-the-art technology all around them. In turn, smartphones and tablets are becoming more of a staple than a luxury, especially in the Silicon Valley. The video below shows young kids of different ages, interacting with one of the first Apple desktop computers that was released in 1977, The Apple II.
Note: Take a look at one child, as she tries to 'speak' to the computer. Does she think it has a Virtual Assistant?
As you can see, the kids were shocked to find out that it wasn't a touch screen and there was no Internet connection, but when the Apple II came out, it was a huge milestone for technology. In only 30 years we have managed to innovate the concept of the desktop and create compact devices with even more capabilities.With this type of forward thinking, only time will tell what the latest technology trend will be. Eventually, future generations will see a tablet and think it is completely unusable, similar to the reactions in the video.
I'll leave you with this picture of ways some older desktops are being put to use.
