I started my career doing assembler on Apple II using ProDOS
Interesting. I did the same, except on a Commodore PET. Ah, the 6502! My first Windows program was a plunge into the Borland C++ compiler and WinG on Windows 3.1 for a side job I decided to use as a learning experience into Windows programming. It displayed real-time election results that was fed to the convention floor in LA for local elections. Quite fun!
Cool looking app, could see where kids could learn and have fun. I wrote a sprite editor for the Commodore, if I remember right in assembler and let the kids go creating sprites then animating them.
I've been tasked to create an electronics learning system for my grand children, been mulling it over in my head but haven't finalized anything yet. Right now they have; batteries, the old blade switches, DC lamps, etc. and are really interested and want to learn.
If first you don't succeed, hide all evidence you ever tried!
Apparently according to the link below they are taking on WhatsApp. WhatsApp, the useful cross-platform messaging system which allows my wife (iPhone, but she won't be told) to communicate with me (Windows Phone). Yes we need to crush that and have something which only works on Apple devices.
How they sell this image of being innovators when all they really are is a very aggressive example of the nasty side of capitalism is quite beyond me.
But but but they are so pretty and and and Apple have their reasons you hater because Apple are good and pure and have our interests at heart, without these policies their devices wouldn't just work. And and did I mention they so pur-ritty.
Remember when the MAC came out? There was no way to write programs for it (no assembler or compiler). You had to get an Apple LISA. That was the beauty that had a mother board installed upside down, and the memory was IC chips PLUGGED IN to sockets on the mother board, IC chips that managed to work themselves out over time? "slickest physical designs"!!!
