Old School Computers
Ethan approached me today and asked if I have every seen those "old computers" which do not come with a mouse, and displays its output onto paper. He was asking what it was called again because he forgot. My initial thoughts were he must have seen images of the old IBM punch-card based computers like the ENIAC. And then it hit me! "Do you mean a typewriter?", I asked. "Yes! a typewriter!", he exclaimed. Old school computers indeed.
