    Watch yo' mouth, young 'un.... I remember these ads all too well.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    What gets me about alot of this is the orgin of the "video game" originated with the military trying to develop a missile weapons defense system. These programs were adapted into simple games.
    The evolution of the video game has died and been resurrected over 6 generations and counting.
    Here is one of the first video games...



    Sure has come a long way....

    Thanks for the flashback with that Jrod. (and all your other posts too) I got that for my boys Christmas of 1980 I believe (or right around that time frame anyway) Who would have thought my eldest son would repay it (for a lack of better words) and get me a BlackBerry 30 years later. And to boot I can tell the whole world about it through this internet thing and I still have that Atari till this day. Both joysticks n all
