Plug and Play

I was at Staples the other day and I saw one of those retro Atari consoles on sale. I was tempted to buy one but then I saw that it was “plug and play.”

Plug and play sounds so simple a task but I’m a neophyte when it comes to connecting electronic devices to anything. I like bluetooth. You press a few buttons, lights start blinking and bam, you’re set.

So I walked away from that retro Atari console. I bought my pens and went home.

    Plug and play was a interesting concept back in the day when one of the operating system developers started to use that phrase in their marketing. Most times you had to turn something off and on to get a device to run right.
