I was cleaning out the garage last summer when I found this, an original ATI All-in-Wonder:
It was a big deal when I first got this because it cost several hundred dollars. I don’t remember the circumstances of its acquisition, but I do remember how much I loved this card. Prior to this technology there wasn’t really anything for average consumers to watch TV on their computers, and I remember how cool it was to be able to do so. The other cool thing was you could connect other A/V devices to it, such as a VCR or, in my case, a Sony Playstation. Being able to play Playstation in my room got me through a couple of years of college. I’d come home for lunch and then squeeze in a race in Gran Turismo. Ah, those were the days.
As part of my big cleanup prior to moving, I was sad to see this card go, but it served its purpose well and I’ll always remember it fondly.
