 Immersed in the Apple ][

"I've been working with an Apple ][ emulator lately, remembering some of the charms it had that we've largely lost since. Users of the Apple, or my old Franklin, or many of the other systems out there at the time, had a much more "up close and personal" relationship with the hardware and with the software. I remember my parents talking about a System/360 they'd used in graduate school with punch cards, and wondering how anyone could stand it, when instant feedback from the computer was available right in our den."
