What I really love about my computer is that I can have i-tunes playing, and have Word, Photoshop, and Illustrator all open, and update my blog in Safari ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
My first computer was a mac plus. I could only one application at a time. I had an external harddrive with 30 megabytes. It was considered plenty at the time.
Owen finds it amazing that I can remember a time before computers were considered normal household equipment.
Post script: I just added an entry to the Never On Oprah Book Club blog. Go have a look. Comments and input always appreciated over there! Tell the world what you're reading!
