I think I can make you a good deal on a TI-994A, Commodore 64 or TRS 80 (pronounced "Trash 80"!)   :)   How I miss the good ole days....

LOL! My very first (store bought) computer was a Commodore 16. Remember those? It was basically just a keyboard that you hooked up to your TV. My first PC was scratch built using spare parts my brother brought home from his job at IBM. It had a 4 color CGA card, the 40 MB hard drive was mounted on a PCI card, it had two 5 1/4" floppy drives and he built the monitor using the picture tube from a 13" color TV set that had a bad tuner. The processor was the equivalent of an 80/88.......just one step up from the old 80/86's.

We used TRS 80 model 3's at my high school in our "computer programming" class. These didn't even have hard drives. I remember having to save all of our work onto a "TAPE" drive. Near the end of the year, they had us each write an animation program of our choosing (not an easy task with an RGB monitor) for a demonstration to take place in the lunch room, to get more people interested in taking the class (we were the guinea pigs that volunteered for the pilot class).
After all that work we put in, of long hours writing programs, they ended up using a borrowed Apple computer (I think they were Macintosh back then) with a pre-programmed animation sequence for the demo. Needless to say.............we were pissed.

Don't like iPhones. Never had one........never will. Don't like any other apple products either. They are way over priced for what you get.

Back when I was in the market for my first home computer (not home made), I was comparing 2 at a Best Buy. One was an IBM clone, a 386 (yeah........LONG time ago). Anyway, it had a 40 MB hard drive, 1 MB of RAM, a EGA 16 color video card and the CPU speed was 32 Mhz. The IBM clone was just under $500 and came with a monitor, 2 button mouse and keyboard. The Apple equivalent only had a 1 button mouse, a 4 color video card and was priced at $1200.
Plus at that time, Apple software offerings were extremely slim. The few they offered that were the same as IBM compatible, were more than double in price.

A mobile phone.  Now some can be storing racy photos.  In their own folder.  Check your wife's phone.

Your iPhone has been secretly looking at your boobs

By Charlotte Willis | New York Post

It turns out Apple has been categorizing your pictures for around a year now — and yep, this means all of those sexy photos you’ve either taken or received on your iPhone.

The revelation came about after someone posted on Twitter about discovering the feature when she typed “brassiere” into the Photos app search bar of her smartphone.

“Attention all girls,” Twitter user @ellieeewbu wrote. “Go to your photos and type in the ‘Brassiere’ why are apple saving these and made it a folder!!??!!?” (sic).

The puzzling tweet has already been retweeted more than 12,000 times and is raising a few eyebrows.

User @Sophoejade98_ also tweeted: “Typing brassiere into you photo album search bar and seeing what photos Apple have saved in that file freaks me out a bit.”

Another user asked: “How do we keep this from happening? I feel really really violated.”

Women have been responding to the tweet posting screenshots with similar results, many tweeted they were alarmed to learn about the feature displaying intimate images of themselves.

Chrissy Teigen also investigated, sharing a screenshot of her “brassiere” search.

    It's true. If u type in "brassiere" in the search of your iphotos, it has a category for every boob or cleavage pic you've ever taken. Why. pic.twitter.com/KWWmJoRneJ

However, that’s not exactly what’s going on. Apple isn’t actually saving the photos in a specific folder — they are simply being stored locally on your device, The Verge reports.

The little-known feature was introduced with the launch of i0S 10 in mid-2016 when Apple’s iPhone Photos app began using metadata analysis and image-recognition technology to sort users’ photos automatically and tag them for easy extraction.

There are thousands of objects your iPhone can identify. Categories include everything from various animals, food and fashion to inanimate objects like furniture and all of those sunset snaps you’ve taken.

Weirdly though, despite not having categories for “nude,” or “underwear,” there are plenty categories for bra: brassiere, bandeau, bandeaus, bra, bras, and brassieres.

The function actually makes rifling through all the photos on your phone a whole lot easier. However, it seems many iPhone users were unaware it even existed. Hence the panic.

So don’t worry, your NSFW pics are totally safe.

Regardless of how much liberals try to deny it, the safest cities in America have the most armed citizens per capita.
Whenever a libturd tries to justify gun control to me, I always refer them to Kennesaw GA. as an example.
Yes it's a small town and yes, crime was never a HUGE problem there but, my point is still valid.
They created a law in 1982 stating that every resident head of household, legally able to do so, must own at least 1 gun with ammunition and be trained how to use it.
In the 1st year, the crime rate dropped by 89% and in the last 30 years, they have not had a single gun related murder.
