I'm totally dating myself, but I remember seeing the original ad! A few years later the uncle of a friend of mine in grade school would bring his Mac to show us the CAD work he did on a daily basis. It was the first time I had ever heard of anybody using a computer (which for me had been playthings) to make a living. I instantly knew I wanted to work with a computer when I grew up 😃

 

It’s always Chariots of Fire for moments like this lol.

 

As much as I hate Apple this unquestionably changed the face of the home computing world, I wouldn't be coding without its innovations.

 

I'll just 'second' your statement lol You said exactly what I had to say.

 

I don't remember the release (in France), but a few months later I was in BTS and one of our teachers had brought his Macintosh. Compared to the Apple 2 we were working on at the time, everything was different: a mouse, embedded software, graphics, and wysiwyg!

 

Way before my time to appreciate it as much as I should but I remember seeing one probably 3 years ago in my Grandparents house, up in the attic.

 

This makes me feel old! I bought one when they first came out. It revolutionized the quality of the papers I wrote at the time and drastically reduced the time to create them.

Do you use time-tracking for work or for your personal time?
