A retrospective

30 to 40 years ago.

These were our playlists.



Mobile games looked like this.



This was the way to watch videos any time we wanted.



This was the way to listen to music on the go.



Cell phones looked like this.



Home computers looked like this.



and everything we ever wanted to know were in these.

[@764286,Bushranger] I was one of only three people in my year studying physics at uni. who had a calculator in the mid seventies. A Sinclair Scientific that I assembled myself. Sold it recently for about 10 USD.

[@872096,ninalanyon] Surprised it went so cheap, I thought antiques got big money 馃ぃ

[@764286,Bushranger] It wasn't even in working order. I was happy just to see that it wouldn't end up in landfill. I recently sold a TI programmable graphing scientific calculator that was less than ten years old and in perfect condition for about the same price so I suppose the 'antique' did attract a bit of a premium!
