Watch a Bunch of Adorable Kids React to an Old Apple Computer

Watch a Bunch of Adorable Kids React to an Old Apple Computer | Nerdy Needs |

The good folks over at Everything is Terrible edited Komputer Kindergarten down into a highlight reel, just under three minutes. It's amazing. Seriously..."

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it.
