I Remember When...
« on: April 06, 2016, 03:08:07 PM »
Sometimes, when trudging up a very steep hill you get to a point where you look back and say, "Wow! I did all this?! I didn't even realize how far I've come..."

In today's digital age, things (and not just technology) advance to such a far reaching point that when you look back it makes you say, "Hey..." or "Wow.."
I figured I'll start this thread so we can help each other make the look back...

I'll start with this one (so as not to reveal my age  ;) )

...a palm centro was considered a smartphone...

When car phones came out. It was this little black bag (about the size of a shoe box)!
