You carried a Pocket PC, Cell phone and an iPod in your pants? Or am I the only dweeb that did this?

Umm, yeah, I've never carried all three.

I had an HP95LX once, upgraged to the 100LX, then it was a Palm III, then a V, and now a Tungsten. But I have stopped carrying the Palm. I haul the iPod around when I think I might need some tunege but not on an everyday basis.

Those were the good ole days. Of course I never feel obligated to answer my phone. Just because someone chooses to call me does not mean I choose to talk to them and I feel no responsibility to answer the phone just because I could.

If the time and circumstance is right I will, but I always laugh when a phone rings and people stop everything they are doing to race and answer it. It is most rude when you are talking to someone and they stop their conversation with you to answer a phoen call from who knows who about who knows what. People have developed very bad social manners when it comes to the telephone.

Was doing some digging and thought this would be a good one to start back up again. So I'll start. I was driving down the interstate here in Florida today and was thinking. Do you remember when the interstate speeds used to be 60mph. Seems so weird and slow now days.

Also do you remember when flip phones were the "thing" to have.

I can remember when it was 55.

I had a cell phone and a pocket pc but not the iPod. Didn't need it with the pocket PC.

Remember when you had to wait to see the photos you just took? Shoot the entire roll of film, develop it (yourself or have a lab do it) find the ones you really like and order more prints or an enlargement.

I still have 50 or so rolls of film in the basement. And a few disks of film. I get a few developed every once in a while. Anyone remember the disk cameras?

Remember when kids actually went outside and played with friends until the street lights turned on?

Remember when we would order brine shrimp through the mail, thinking they were sea monkeys?
