    "Christmas?" Why, in my day we didn't even have Christmas, you lucky whipper-snappers.

    Oh wait, that's right I'm not that old. :D

    At one point in the late 80s, a relatively-wealthy uncle got a car that had a phone in it. A phone, in his car! At the time it seemed like magic to me. Nowadays if I see one all I can think is "ugh, get with the times, man!"

    I once had the "pleasure" of trying to teach someone to use their computer, only it turned out it was a late 80s/early 90s portable PC that had used to belong to some yappy business exec or something. I had never seen one of those before, and I haven't since either. Someone must have felt very smart and in vogue when buying that beast, which weighted in at 12kg or something, and of course it was utter blast to work with. Fun times!

    Also, I remember there was a car phone in one of the very old James Bond movies...

    Still, "they" have yet to produce the consumer hovercar that "they" have been promised almost yearly since the 70s... Give mye my frigging future, now! I want my hovercar!

    Hey guys! A few questions you all might be able to explain.

    What's a newspaper?

    Why were phones on the walls?

    They had phones in cars?

    Yeah... when I started at my current workplace, we had a computer I had to use that was some early 90s Toshiba laptop, an absolute brick, similar to if not the exact same as the one below.

    Mind you, that was significant because it was a work computer which we were still using in 2004.

    Yeah, but believe me it was a lot heavier and far less powerful. :p

    Also, them's one of those fancy high-tech Gameboys. Gotta go with the gray brick man.

    Great stuff, @John Crichton - in 2004 even! The computer I worked with came in a separate carrying bag thing, with a separate battery and cable (that your Assistant could carry, perhaps?). Also, the screen was monocolor of a nice yellowgreen variety, and powered by Windows 1,0 or something. Actually, today it might be worth a fortune to collectors!

    No matter what's happening in my life watching the OT always takes me back to the magic,it was a magic time with so much going on.its like a comfort for me,like comfort food for the soul.when I'm on my death bed I will request empire strikes back,and if I survive through it I will then request ROTJ,and I will do my best to pass right when Yoda does,wouldn't that just be the ultimate.all my family would just nod there heads and say damm,he really was a bit of a tripper wasn't he.then the imperial march for the funeral,and finally the headstone that reads-
    "fallen Jedi"........now possibly a forceghost..lol
    Do movies still have this kind of impact nowadays?I think not but I would think my opinion would be irrelevant,have moviemakers' lost something or was it all just timing and the originality of star wars in our time.there were so many cool movies through the late seventies and then through the eighties,even the simplest effects were mind blowing.I can feel the magic again,when I watch TFA for the first time I will know most of the cantina members will be watching it also,I will be grateful for the knowledge I have gained from my time in here and I truly believe it will enhance the experience,I didn't think much of The name at the start,but now it means alot to me.the force is going to awaken,for us all once again.awesome,what a time to be alive

    I remember writing term papers on an old IBM 286 that was a hand me down from the credit union my Aunt worked at.

    I had a laminated cheat sheet of all of the commands that sat on the top of the keyboard because, like, you know you couldn't just click an icon to change the font to bold or italic.

    Ah yes, ALT 0162 to get the ¢ sign.

    WAIT A MINUTE, you still have to do that to get the ¢ sign :mad:

    At fifteen, I had my mind
    bent on learning.
    'At thirty, I stood firm.
    'At forty, I had no doubts.
    'At fifty, I knew the decrees of Heaven.
    At sixty, my ear was an obedient organ for the
    reception of truth.
    'At seventy, I could follow what my heart desired,
    without transgressing what was right.'

    I remember one of my school friends had a Commodore 64 in the late 80s, and I loved playing on that so much that when I was with other friends I often insisted we play act computer games. Yep, I spent my childhood acting out The Last Ninja and Donkey Kong.


    By the way, I fear I might have escalated this thread into a massive lame old guys remenicing about their childhood... Sorry for that, younglings ;)

    I know that's crazy. Awkward....
    On the internet that never happens. I don't need a gf... All I need is some Mountain Dew and a bag of Doritos. They'll never complain at me, they will never make mean comments. Socialize, for real?
    I totally agree with you man!

    Yes I agree. The whiny kids complaining represents the jaded youth of today.
    Thanks anyway for the negative rating though.
