Nikispeak: A storage disk

In Miami airport, we were walking around when I came across a picture of an old 3.5inch disk. Showing it to Nikita, I explained – “Believe it or not, in the 1990s, this is how we stored data. Each one of them could store 1.4MB of data. Put in todays’s terms – just to store ONE of your iPhone pictures, you would need three or four of them. For one photo!!!”

Nikita weighed in what she had heard and said wisely “That just proves one thing…”

Expecting her to comment on the rapid progress of technology, I asked “What?”

Pat came the reply – “That you are really old, Dad”.

    So, two things:
    1. Most young computer users today have absolutely NO idea what the ‘Save’ icon in most windows programs is supposed to be. Delete…recycle bin / garbage can…okay. Undo…backward arrow…alright, got it. Save…what IS that thing?? – most of them have absolutely no frame of reference for it.
    2. There comes a time in every young person’s life when everything that comes out of their parents’ mouth just cements how OLD they really are. Then comes the phase when everything just goes to prove how WRONG they are about everything 🙂
