I Feel SCSI Again

SCSI (for Small Computer System Interface), pronounced “scuzzy” (pre-dating USB as the hardware go-between of choice), isn’t something you hear much about these days. So when I was in an Apple Store and a guy asked the employee on hand if they had a SCSI adapter, I was amused. But I was even more amused when the Apple employee said back to him, with a completely straight face, “I’ve never heard of that.”

Isn’t it crazy how a technology that was the standard for decades — and something I remember growing up with — has now been relinquished to footnote status in a matter of a few short years? Don’t worry, kids. The technology you’re growing up with now will someday be the same. And then you’ll feel old. Trust me.
