From struggling with dial-up to playing 3D Pinball when you couldn't get online, here are some tech throwbacks today's kids cannot relate to.
Sucks that they replaced MSN with Skype. Never liked the darn thing.
Anyone remember Mirc Chat?
Been using it for 25 years or so now lol
mirc chat is still availble though although nowadays not used that much. Xchat comes built in to linux mint so many people just use that one.
Windows 98 themes.
Yes old modems were mentioned, but not phone couplers.
kids of today will never understand the frustration when you accidentally recorded over a home video or your favorite movie on a VHS cassette or having to get up to press pause button on the VCR before and after every advert when recording a movie from TV. (the original way to pirate movies and share it with your friends)
Funny. I remember when Cable was all the rage when it came out. My children's memory will be of when it went away.
