Remember when kids got Legos and the Etch A Sketch for Xmas? Now it's iPhones and laptops and interactive web connected gaming consoles! Wow...

My kids still want Legos for Christmas, but... do you remember when Lego sets weren't $75 - $150?!

Its amazing to think about all the gadgets the iPhone replaces:

-an mp3 player
-a digital camera
-a camcorder
-a keychain flashlight (people used to carry those around)
-a watch
... and lots of other stuff if you start to add up all the apps!

And yes, I did used to carry around my mp3 player and my phone everywhere :-/ Its why I was so excited when I heard Apple was making a phone. I thought, "FINALLY I don't have to carry both of them around!"

I just carry my iPhone round with me now and my Sony Ericsson K800i, if I want to take a decent picture that requires a flash!

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.
Haha... I know and you paid EXTRA to get them in 1 hour opposed to getting them in week or so.

Remember when athletes used to play sports for the love of the game and not the money?

I remember when my mom put a lock on the telephone dial so we wouldn't run up a huge telephone bill. Cell phones were still thirty something years off.

Your cell phone's "brain" was mounted in the trunk and the handset was attached to the dash. The antenna was on the inside and outside of the windshield. And my first plan was 60-minutes per month.

Remember when iPhone 2G was the best phone out there , lol :p
No. And neither does anyone else that had one. In fact one of the worst "phones" out there. But it was the start of something beautiful and was the coolest phone out there.
