Technology has always been something that has been very present throughout my life. My dad's job when I was younger allowed us to be exposed to computers and other things like that at a very young age. In fact my dad built our first home computer using different parts from old computers they had at work. But before we even had a computer on of the ways that I used technology the most was the one and only Nintendo. Then Nintendo was a gaming console that my brothers and I would spend hours playing against each other on. Whether we were trying to stop the zombies from eating our neighbors, save all of Beethoven's puppies, or just get the Looney Toons through the obstacle course, we wouldn't quit until we had succeeded. Our parents could have cared less about the Nintendo, but to us it was the greatest thing ever, especially on cold days where playing outside was only fun for so long. Now Nintendos have been replaced by xbox's and ps3's and other various gaming systems and it's only been about twelve or so years since I was playing one and that just goes to show you how much technology can change in a lifetime.
