VIRAL VIDEO: Kids try to use old school computers

Monday, May 26, 2014
Kids these days are used to electronics that come in very small packages. Nowadays, smartphones and tablets are powerful enough to replace a desktop computer.

So what happens when you introduce a group of tech savvy children to an old school Apple II computer?

"I don't get it," said one child says of the command-driven system. "And I also don't get the 1970s."

The "Kids React to Old Computers" video is the latest in a series posted to YouTube from Fine Brothers Entertainment. This latest installment was done in partnership with a new AMC show.

In the video, the youngsters were shown the computer individually and then asked to perform certain tasks. This includes turning it on and inserting a floppy disk.

"I don't like the computer," said a frustrated 8-year-old named Brooke-Monae. "I really don't."

Thirteen-year-old Derek added, "Then it was the peak of technology. Now, it seems kinda worthless."
