We were reminiscing the other day about “When we went to college…” (oh so long ago):
- Mobile phones were briefcase-sized car phones
- We were only able to access The Internet while sealed within the thick glass walls of the computer lab during set hours with a monitor watching over you the entire time
- MP3s were a fantasy that had yet to come to life, hell CDs were still relatively new technology and barely portable</lli
- We saw the launch of AOL for DOS. DOS!
…ah, those were the days. :)
Now I have a cell phone that fits in my pocket, alerts me with any song I choose, allows me to check my email, chat in various formats with friends and locate my exact position on Earth all while listening to the 100+ CD quality songs it holds. Oh yeah, and actually talk to people. ;)
I’ve never seen a full episode of 24, but this is still hillarious! Hard to believe this sort of technology was “cutting edge” not so long ago. Even funnier to me is that this “pilot” would have taken place two years after I was out of college!
