Back during the old days, US robotics (or was it a BBS program )  said that: “Any sufficiently advanced technology would seem like magic to the ordinary mortals”…or words to the effect.

I remember using Visicalc to do my 10 year financial projections for a college project in about 1/10 the time. That got me hooked to computers and to the promise of savings…

I have been a techie ever since.
