Somewhat inspired by “What’s the last bit of tech you bought?” topic, I was thinking about my first computer.
It was one of these
A Commodore PET 2001 with a keyboard even worse than the much later Sinclair Spectrum’s. I remember the guy in the shop asked what I was going to do with it. I couldn’t think of an answer (I didn’t want to say “play games”), so he told me he was trying to write programme to control his microwave. I didn’t even know anyone who owned a microwave!
I like to imagine he’s still doing that, and hasn’t sold out and bought a Google Home.
So what was your first bit of IT?
