That little note from the original owner of the VideoPhone was so wholesome! I love learning the sentimental stories mundane objects may have

kurtis, danny, and drew all posted the same day. they're also all sponsored by opera. my little game theory is that they were all given the same deadline and all got it done on the last day, as anyone would

My dad is a software engineer and when I was real young in the 90s he had a gig programing games for the palm pilot. I remember he would give me his palm pilot to keep me occupied anywhere we had to wait (restaurants, DMV, post office). When I was an adult, he admitted he was basically using me for testing, because I would find bugs and then complain to him that it wasn't working. There were several games, but the things I remember best was mancala and a little drawing pad.

My parents bought a My Lil Reminder for some reason, and it was from an infomercial so it came with a second one for free. My sisters and I used to record silly dumb little messages and leave them in each other's rooms to be found later. There was one that made me laugh so hard that I kept it on there for ages and over time the quality of the audio degraded so badly until it was just static. Thanks for the fun throwback!

I appreciate that y'all recorded the entire Xybernaut Computer segment sitting on the floor of the dining room. Really enhances the vibe of kids playing with a new toy

12:38 not sure if anyone mentioned it, but picturephones/videophones were (and to my knowledge still are) super helpful for people who use ASL or other sign languages! I’m from a part of the US that’s considered a “deaf city,” and tons of colleges and other places around use have a separate number for a videophone!

The "paralyzed by popups" cop segment is actually an ability in the game Shadowrun. It's exactly that: you hack the tech in your opponent and dump a bunch of popups directly into their eyes, it's like a cyberpunk smoke bomb.

Fun fact about the Casio camera watch: Paul McCartney had one in 2001, and he absolutely LOVED IT. He showed it off, took pictures with it during interviews, and even used a picture of himself taken with his camera watch for the cover of his 2001 album Driving Rain!!

As someone who lived through it all, I can say that back in the day, new tech and gadgets were coming at us very quickly. We transitioned from using payphones and pagers to analog cell phones, SMS texting, and T9. One year, we had palm pilots, which were all the rage. Then suddenly, your company would introduce the “Blackberry,” and everything changed. We were constantly adapting to completely different “solutions” every couple of years in various aspects of our lives—how we communicated, worked, and even how we lived. And then came modern smartphones. Once they were adopted, they became the new de facto standard for everyone. Since then, they’ve remained stable. It’s worth noting that stability in tech wasn’t something we had until recently. Additionally, a lot of the older tech was frankly subpar and rarely used. Our everyday essentials ranged from walkmans and pagers to MP3 players and flip phones—essentially what we have now.
