  1. I had the original gameboy. You know the proper ‘brick’ grey one. My mum bought it for me as a Christmas present, it came with a case (could hold up to 8 games! AND a strap) and also Mario 1, Mario 2 (six golden coins). It cost £54.99.

    I used to look in the Argos catalogue each Christmas for my wish list. I so desperately wanted the printer that you could get. You could print out little shitty screenshots.

    This reminded me of that.

    I just wanted to share.

  2. That’s some James Bond s*** right there ! I remember growing up in the 80s and I got my first watch that was an AM FM radio as well when you plug your earphones directly into them was pretty cool.

  3. I was a freshman in college in 1982. I remember a professor saying that some day we would all have computers in our homes. Someone raised their hand and asked “But what would we do with them?”. The professor didn’t have an answer. No one had an answer. I bought my first home computer 15 years later in 1997. It cost $3000, and of course was very primitive compared to today. Dial up modem that tied up the phone line to use AOL, small hard drive and Ram. I loved it though. I remember being so impressed that I could put a disk in and have the entire encyclopedia. The Internet was in its infancy and we had no idea what it would become.

  4. It would be perfect with Steve Carrell in a The Office scene, showing his “proud owner of a Seiko watch” certificate in the background, on the screen.

  5. I remember in the mid-90’s my grandmother gave me a portable handheld tv from the 70’s I think. It was black and white, the screen was about 5-6”, and the entire device wasn’t much more than 18” long, maybe 3” thick. She was nearing the end of her life (cancer) and knew I was into tech gear so passed it on to me. Even though I knew it was old tech, it was still in great condition and it fascinated me to no end!

    Figuring it out, and watching regular 90’s tv on this crisp Black & White mini screen was a nice distraction for a while after she passed, which I’m sure was her idea.

    It’s still so interesting to see the kind of tech solutions we came up with before smartphones.
