I've never seen that before. Even in one of Israel's many museums.

It's interesting to see the genesis of technology we take for granted today.

I prefer to keep cash as an option..


Paying with cards is just another way to monitor our movements.

My first job in IT was based on a computer system not far removed from that. A bit smaller...but huge mainframes with massive disks and tape drives.

Programming codes such as Cobol, Pascal, Fortran and actual machine codes were used.

I keep a small amount of cash on me at all times. Having cash saves time when the canteen truck comes around the job site.

I still use cash a lot. The old lady buys everything online. We don't live close to a city, so online shopping is a necessity.

I live in a big city, but my wife still buys a lot online. I bought a pair of Nikes online last year. First time I bought footwear online.
