When I got my first computer in 2008, I was filled with so much joy. I used to bring my friends home and show them the brand new PC. It was a big deal. It was a symbol of progress and modernity, and it opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Back then, computers were one of the few ways to entertain myself at home. I could play games, watch videos, or just explore the internet. Having a computer was one of the only ways I could connect with people from all over the world.
Fast forward to today, computers are in our pockets in the form of mobile phones. They just became a "tool" now. A machine to just get things done. There is no emotional component attached to it.
When you get things easily, It's value goes down.
Childhood definitely mattered.
