Back in 1984, the world moved at a much slower pace. So when Adi Blasi demoed the Apple Lisa, Apple’s first GUI-driven computer, the show host never complained of long load times and unresponsive interface delays. In fact, she stayed quiet most of the time, expressing amazement when Adi dragged to select a block of text and changed its font.

Life was a lot simpler back then, and Adi found himself explaining what this mouse thing was all about, how the cursor changed its appearance to provide context over different parts of the interface, and what a technological advance running 16 apps at a time was. Ah, the good old days.
