    I remember the day when cell phones never existed. And neither did the Internet... It's pretty amazing how far things have come.

    When i was a kid, the high tech consumer electronics at our house was a "hifi" television about 19" in a big wood cabinet with a stereo on one side. My mom use to listen to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra records and we watched about 4 channels of decent TV reception.

    We had two rotary dial phones

    I think the TV was replaced by a color one about 1972 or thereabouts

    I remember browsing the web via monochrome text-only WAP pages. It took like 5 minutes to search for something on eBay. Then I got a Razr and I thought I was James Bond.

    Oh don't know, I think the Razr is still pretty sleek for a clamshell phone. Of course for truly thin, I'm pretty sure you still can't beat this Samsung U100 from 2006, at 5.9mm...
