This was a must-have item:


With its whopping 8MB of memory ;D

Got mine on black friday 2001 for $99 IIRC.
If the battery died you lost all your data. Luckily it had great desktop backup capabilities, something that Android still lacks.
Yup. I had one of those too, I thought it was the coolest thing.

The really cool kids had the M515, but the joke was on them when their batteries died after a day and their data was gone.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

we used tokens to ride the subway.

And the tokens had a "Y" punched out in the center

Backseat of the station wagon facing the back window.
Mom and pop stores that rented videos VHS.
