So, I was watching an old episode of Married...With Children this morning (for those who don't know, it was a sitcom that ran from the late 80s to mid 90s), and one thing that I found immensely funny was something that they probably never intended to be funny.
See, they bought a computer on this episode, and they were bragging about its specs. See, the computer they bought had a 40 megabyte hard disk, and 7 megabytes of RAM.
And on the off chance that someone reading this knows absolutely nothing about modern computers, just for reference, the computer I'm using to write this (laptop I bought last year for college) has 450-ish GB hard drive, and 6GB of RAM.
It's funny how far computers have advanced. And even back when this episode was made, computers had advanced quite a bit since the olden days of gym-sized computers that could basically only do the tasks of cheap calculators.
It also makes me wonder how much computers will advance in the future...And worry about possible machine uprisings. Well, at least we were warned by the Terminator and Matrix movies.
