    Well, I was born in 1944, my 1st real computer was a TRS-80 from Tandy, I still have some parts to my Commodore-64, remember running all my programs in Basic, and have owned every edition of the iPhone. I bought an iPad 16GB last week and will get my new iPhone 4 on June 27. And iVan, I owned a '57 Chevy when it was new.

    I'm heartened to see how many early adopters arein the 55+ group. My husband and I are both in that category.

    I was hooked on computers from the time I fist touched a Vic20! First one owned was Commodore64, then onto an Amiga! I've had every iPhone too, and was contemplating NOT getting another since it's not used much now that I have my iPad. BUT I'll be ordering my iPhone 4 next week too, just can't resist!

    My first home computer was a TRS-80 Color Computer (CoCo). However, I took a Fortran IV class in high school. I had to use a keypunch and put my punch cards in a mail box to have my program run overnight. My cards would be returned to me with the printout of the results wrapped around them. Of course before you punched your cards, you wrote out your program on special sheets with 80 spaces for the 80 characters you were allowed to have per line, in pencil -- yes you programmed in pencil on paper.

    Anyway, I guess a lot of us here have some history with technology. :D

    Yup.
    I had already noticed that there were a lot of us on these forums in the upper age brackets.

    The first computers I ever got my hands on, were when I went into the USAF at age 18 in 1971.
    Any of us who scored over a certain level in a Data Processing Aptitude test, went straight into Computing Tech Training.

    All Mainframe stuff, still quite a few years before any Personal computers would show up.
    Huge reels of magnetic tape, mylar tape feeds, and keypunch cards, sorters, collaters, readers, etc.

    Tried to leave IT a couple times, but that never lasted long.

    I am possibly the oldest member of this group, am curious, so anyone older do so please, I turn 70 in July and love this iPad, I also own 3 laptops and 4 desktops but use the iPad more than the rest anymore, mainly because it is so portable anywhere one goes, my first CPU was also a trs 80 from the shack, I am a retired printer and technology made by skilled trade obsolete, I.e. Now it's desktop publishing, And was offered early retirement at age 58 now spend more time playing with new technology than I did at job
