Remember what we called technology in the 90s?
In the same way that we couldn’t have foreseen mobile phones with touchable screens and portable Internet, it’s almost impossible for our children and grandchildren to believe that we once used floppy disks instead of USB keys and carried music around on something called a cassette tape!
Most of what passed as cool and hip in the 90s now look like they hail from the dark ages and are already museum-worthy!
Why not take a trip down memory lane with the list of gadgets below and SHARE them with your friends if your nostalgic and with your family if you don’t mind being teased about your age!

Remember that DOS prompt? If you couldn’t remember the command you wanted, you would just have to stare at the blinking green dash until you did!
What about the notebook-sized floppy disks?
The pre-historic version of the digital video camera?
There was the Walkman (for cassettes) and then there were portable CD players!
Can you relive taking out your favorite CD and cleaning it against your jumper every time it skipped!
