Like this if you remember actually hearing your computer tell you “You’ve Got Mail”, normally right after hearing a dial tone to connect to the internet.
They just don’t build things like they used to. I can drop my smartphone from the side of the couch and the screen will smash and then die soon after. Back in the day, things were made to last. For example this Game Boy. It survived the barracks bombing during the Gulf War and you can still play Tetris on it! Nintendo keeps this Game Boy in their World Store in NYC just to prove the resilience of old school Game Boys!
Do you have fond memories of feeding and cleaning up after a small virtual pet on a brightly colored plastic egg keychain? Your Tamagotchi taught you valuable life lessons about taking care of something that was so incredibly needy that it could die in less than a half day. If you are really missing your Tamagotchi then don’t worry there are multiple apps for this virtual pet and they are launching the keychain again this fall. How many of you remember this wonderfully needy pet?
It’s official, the Atari video games have been found in the landfill in New Mexico. Atari E.T. lives again! Ok, I haven’t heard if it is still actually functional, but still pretty cool that they survived. The legend is confirmed.
Remember walkmans? You could put on your headphones, put your favorite in, clip in onto your jeans and you could jam to your music on the way to bus stop. Watch kids react to a walkman for the first time. Like this post if you remember using a walkman!
I like the kid that thought this was when music was invented. 🙂
