Technology from the 20th century
The Coleco ADAM was my very first computer. My parents bought it used (it was only about a year old) for a pretty good deal. It was the mid-80s and I was just starting to have an interest in computers, thanks to a computer class in my elementary school. My parents would have nothing to do with this poor machine, so I would hole myself up in my room and play Buck Rogers and pretend like I'm printing off important documents all day. I really had no idea what I was doing, but it was one of the best birthday presents I ever received. About a year later, I sold it for around 70 dollars. I subsequently blew it all on little knick-knacks and a baby turtle (named "Robert Van Winkle") from the local flea market.
