Okay, so im only 25 but I can relate a lot ot all of this. I played on an atari 2600, we had like a billion games, and we had to switch out the cartridges. I didnt have a cd until I was in middle school, and I was 20 when I actually had a car with a cd player. My dad still played old vinyl records until I was 10. I remember back when video cameras had the 8mm tapes, and we had to get a special VCR to play them.
I also remember when the TV's didnt even have a remote. We had two tvs in my house when I was little, and they each had the pull knobs that you had to pull in order to turn the tv on. Then you only had about 10 channels and each of them had their own button.
Cell phones, what cell phones? I got my first cell phone that I was only able to use when I went a few hours away for track meets my sophomore year in high school. And we got our first cell phones when AT&T was Cellular One, talk about bad service. and there was no such thing as a color screen, you had tow colors on the screen, gray and darker gray, hell, I didnt evenhave a flip phone nevermind the full keyboard!
I also think about computers and I had to print things on a printer that was bigger then most computers these days with the perforated pages, and the sides that you had to rip off, cmon I Know that some of you out there know what I am talking about. I didnt even have internet until I was about 10 and even then it was dial up when it took 15 min just to download a web page.
My fiancee has two kids 10 and 11, and they are wanting cell phones, i pods, and digital cameras for xmas, I still sit there and scratch my head and was like HUH?
