My first computer – Tandy 1000


Anyone remember these things??

I had a Tandy 1000 HX. No hard drive…. and it was in the first wave of computers with the 3.5 inch diskettes.

Used to compose music… really terrible music I should note, on this thing.

Anyone remember the games in this era?? I remember spending so many hours playing the King’s Quest and Space Quest games…. I loved the sense of humor in the Space Quest games.

Here’s a Christmas commercial for the Tandy 1000. I vaguely remember seeing this on TV.


CBC Archives: Introducing the Macintosh, 1984


I had to post this. Been watching some of the CBC Archives on YouTube, I like spending time on YouTube occasionally.

Found this great video on the introduction of the Macintosh. A GUI computer!!

I remember doing all the text based commands to start up early generation computer games, word processing programs and all that. I had an old Tandy 1000 years back when I was a kid.

Here’s an introduction to the Macintosh, a GUI interface, a mouse…. easy as pie.
