Technology: Then and Now

By Allie Gross

Technology Then

Technology used to be huge, boxy and not portable. The first smaller computers weighed about 23 lbs. The Macintosh 128K was the first computer that could talk. It also had 13 fonts which was more than anyone had ever used. It also had a handle so it was portable. Computers also had floppy disks which were how you played games and used the internet. In order to search something you HAD to type http://www. in order for it to search what you wanted.

Technology Now

Technology now is small, portable, and fast, It has a very large storage capacity compared to the first computers. We have fast, modern search engines such as Google, Bing, and Firefox. We have gmail now which was not around a decade ago. Laptops now weigh around 2-4 pounds.
