Do you remember when you got your 1st got a cellphone? I was 18, 1st year university & pretty much feeling like I’d arrived even though my mom had to take the contract out for me! It was a Nokia 8210 I think, with those yellow & black screens, essentially a feature phone even though that term probably didn’t really exist back then.
When my dad got the 1st cellphone I’d ever seen in real life just a few years before that, an Ericsson with an aerial that had to be pulled in & out, I wasn’t really phased that much thinking cellphones must be a really boring businessman’s tool tantamount to a fancy calculator.
Today I have that crumbling disease called gadgetitis. The
want need of the newest, shiniest devices & it really is impossible to keep up. We’ve come a long, long way from where this all started & its hard to imagine if you look through below where we could be in just 4 years!
