ThrowbackTechnology: The Apple Lisa II Personal Computer

Posted by Pixafy

TBT Lisa Computer II Final

The Apple Lisa II Personal Computer was developed in 1983 and was the first PC to offer a graphical user interface at an inexpensive rate. Any by inexpensive we mean $9,995.

The Lisa was advanced for its time, with built-in protected memory, preemptive multitasking, and support for up to 2 megabytes of RAM. Steve Jobs originally worked on the project but was forced out by co-workers in 1982. He eventually moved on to another project you might be familiar with, called Macintosh. Ring a bell? #ThrowbackTechnology

ThrowbackTechnology: The Cassette Tape

Posted by Pixafy

throwbacktechnology cassette

Ah, the cassette tape. From the 70s through the late 90s it was one of the most common formats for prerecorded music, exploding in popularity with the introducing of the Sony Walkman in 1979. With the cassette came the mixtape, which caused an uproar due to its contribution to the increase in music piracy. But that didn’t stop you from making your “Diane and Tom Forever – Summer ’92 Mix”. #ThrowbackTechnology
