Ever wanted to hear Silicon Valley’s top techies mimic the sound of a modem? Here you go. For “Throwback Thursday” we asked some Code Conference attendees to wax nostalgic about their favorite old-school tech.
Exidy Sorcerer - CP/M - 8k of RAM - Zilog Z80. Storage mechanism was casette tape.
In the early 1970's, a friend of the family had an engineering calculator, I believe it was made by HP, that was the size of a very large mobile phone and cost almost $1000. In 1974, Texas Instruments sold the TI-30 for less than $40. Besides the Tandy's and Compaq's, there was a Kaypro. All used floppy discs and were limited to 64k to 128k of memory. My first experience in programming was with a Compaq toteable with 64k. Those were the good ole' days!
@Markizd Thanks for sharing your #tbt tech, Markzid. Would love to hear from others as well.
