The Magic of Technology: New Old School

Do you remember your first cell phone (or car phone as they were once called)? I do. Mine was zipped up in a bag. I kept it under the seat of my 1990 Nissan Sentra and nearly got in a car accident when people called me. Since I only was alloted 60 free minutes a month, people had to first call me on my pager(aka beeper). I would then decide if I could afford to call them back from my mobile phone. After all, it was $1.35/minute back then. Ouch man.

I kinda miss those days. I miss them so much that I decided to return to the days of yor and find myself an old school celly. Thanks to the folks at YUBZ (pronounced Why You Busy), I was able to go back to the future and rock the car phone with a coiled cord.

Check it out...

I love the magic of technology. What would you like to see modernized?

  1. Well, now that I can check the old school phone off the list (thanks YUBZ), I would like to see the Walkmen modernized. Oh wait... has that already been done?
