    Microsoft Windows 95
    Windows is an operating system that has changed the world today. It has dominated the computer market ever since it has been launched. When I was younger I became familiar with Windows 95. Ever since that time I have had an everlasting interest in computers and how they work. As a result, I wish to pursue a career in the technology field. Without Microsoft Windows I may not have found an interest in computers.

  • Netflix

    Netflix was founded in 1997 by Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings. It is an online movie streaming site that also lets you rent movies by DVD. Netflix is a wonderful service for movie addicts like me. The oppurtunity to watch a movie whenever without the need of a DVD is very convenient.
  • Google

    Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. It is a public search engine that is considered the most popular today. Google also provides many services and internet releated products. It has become the only search engine I use on the internet. I also use Google Chrome as my default browser since I find it much faster than Internet Explorer. Google is my preferred way of searching things on the internet.

    The Third-Generation iPod Nano was my first ever Apple product. It was a 4gb iPod and has affected my life.

The iPod nano has led me to purchase more Apple products as a result.
