I know exactly what you mean.
EDIT: Oh, and the music was fantastic!
Wasting time in malls looking all the cool toys was great.Instead of this,now,we sit in front of the computer,virtually trying to get an impression of watches,knives etc. Some things where really easier in the 90s.
Yeah, but in comparison, the selection was terrible!
They're awesome, but they're so hard to see now.
Not really. I'd say that, except for the custom-made stuff, it was about the same overall.
thats true,but you never knowed what things where outhere,so you where more satisfiyed with your purchase.Thats how i remember it as a kid.With only 3 Diskman in the local store,you get the best(pricewise) and everything was,OK.You knowed you get the best of the 3.
Today,if you buy one e.g watch,you see 2 weeks later an other one,better. And dont let me talk about modern high-tech,which is outdated when you recive your package from the postoffice But of course you cant turn back the development of society,and it clearly has advantages to send Amazon stuff back,when it's not my taste.So i only joy nostalica,but i'm not pessimistic.
Stuff I rescued at work. I have a little little display cabinet in my office with the vintage stuff. Not only electronic devices, but mechanical scales, analog cameras, a self build microscope, a microtome cutting knive and some other stuff as well. My own little tech museum
The picture shows:
Left: top - Genius hand-held scanner, bottom -Texas Instruments Ti-59 programmable pocket calculator with docking station (printer and battery charger combo).
Middle: top - Hewlett Packard manual of HP-11C, middle - Hewlett Packard HP-45, bottom - Genius 3-button mouse
Right: Amstrad Alt-286 Laptop. Last time I switched it on, it was still working. DOS 5.5/Win3.1 Combo. If I remeber correct, it has a 20 Mb hard drive. It weights about 12 pounds
Had done that my self in my home with Techstuff (mobile phones,mp3players,videogame consoles),my own minimuseum. Gave it up after the last move.
Heard only rumors about it. The tale is, that one of the former professors took parts of an old pre-war microscope (tube, lenses, mirror) and mounted it on a self-made wooden body after WW2.
From what i can see, it sounds reasonable!thanks for this picture!
