    I know the felling. I lost my beloved Sept 17, 2003 (the day the came out) 15" aluminum Powerbook on Jan 2, 2011. Simply wouldn’t come on. No parts available anymore, too old. BTW my son’s April 2003 Snowball iMAc (shown in the cartoon) is sitting next to me running fine if slowly). Currently on my 27"iMac

    My original IBM PC, as of five years ago, was still going strong, running old word-processing software (I doubt it could handle anything new). Yeah, it was old and very, very tired, but it still worked. BTW, “original” means just that – two 5" floppies, add-on BIG 30MB hard drive. Bought it when it was first introduced, gave it to a friend ten years later, she gave it a friend of hers a decade after that. About 30 years old, now.

    …have we all made a recent backup of important files?

    I once had a hard drive die less than half an hour after backing it up for the first time in 10 days.
    There are two kinds of people in the world: those who make regular backups, and those who will be.

    Can you back up an iPad?

    I lost my 3 yr old pc back in January. The drive has a corrupted partition. After many attempts at de-bugging and even adding a new drive, I had to get a whole new rig and now I need to shell out a lot of moola for disk-recovery software.

    Just fired up my Apple IIgs yesterday. Still works perfectly.
    And, yes Jspine, you can backup your iPad. It was part of your startup process. Check your iCloud.

    My original G5 Powermac died after 10 years of service.

    Geek joke: Why do RSTS (ok, PDP-11* 16-bit platforms) programmers confuse Christmas with Halloween?
    ’cause Dec 25 = Oct 31…

    Using a Compaq from 2002 to read these. Still humming as smoothly as ever.

    Hmmm. Maybe he will get an iPad.

    Still have my first Mac, a Classic, and it still works, boots to a working desktop in 30 seconds. Not bad for 23 year-old tech.
