Back in the day, decent home computers were still new, with the Amiga being an affordable and popular machine used by a lot of young people.
Nowadays computers and computing devices in general are just appliances and tools to get stuff done, no real fun in themselves.
I used to like "using" a computer, now its more about just getting a task done.
now its more about what they do, rather than what they are.
many would say this is better, some would say its less fun
