It is a little hard to imagine but some of our memories are linked to the various computing technologies that are no longer in use today. I have heard many times my parents speak of floppy disks and all the funny things that happened when using these disks. Similarly, whenever my older brother visits me, he brings his old Nintendo GameCube, attaches it to the TV and starts playing games that we used to enjoy as kids – Sonic Adventure, Sonic Mega Collection, Super Mario and many more. Although we have played these games zillions of games, the sweet memories associated with them still bring tears of happiness in our eyes.
