Ancestry Of The iPhone 5 (Kids React)

Hope you are not one of the 8+ million people who has already seen this since it first posted less than a week ago: “Kids React to Old Computers.” Does it make you feel (1) prehistoric? (2) cool? or (3) bored?
(Extra points if you know exactly what I’m referring to when I say I started out on a mainframe and my first personal computer was an Osborne–NOT a Kaypro.)
The Osborne Executive “portable” computer: weighed over 30 lbs, looked like a lopsided sewing machine when packed up. Original Osborne had green type; Executive had copper. Used 2 floppy disks: one for software, one to store files.
