My first computer, a modern marvel in its day. Bloody expensive at $1000 for just a keyboard! Programs came on an audio tape or you mastered BASIC like I did. Never got into games and still have zero interest in them. A hobby interest in computers and electronics from valves to transistors and integrated circuitry that continues to serve me well today.
Once you get over the hurdle of how to get something on the screen it's not that difficult to make apps and share them with your friends

Unfortunately, also really showing my age. Mind you, am just waiting for the know-it-all 7 year old to ask "... and what would you know about computers, Granddad? ".
