    Crazy seeing all the kids grown up into teens. That made me feel old. Seeing a walkman which I still used until 2001 made me feel vintage. Seeing the Betamax player and their utter confusion at it made me feel ancient. How can I feel ancient and not yet be 40!!!!

    Nobody did a magic trick by unpluging those headphones from the walkman and plug them in their modern smartphone? That would be so cool. Apple can eat...

      Or met up in general.
      When we went out with people from school, we had to make up a meeting point and a time in school and then meet up and wait for everyone to arrive.
      It was quite common that we spent up to an hour waiting for everyone to finally get there and start the night.
      But I think the biggest difference was, that when we wanted to tell people something, we met.

      @hazysummersky you are so wrong. I had that VCR. Not only that, but I was given it second hand, after we got a new one for the living room, from Radio Shack. I remember having to use a rubber band to replace the drive band.

      Difference between betamax and vhs is betamax you could record on both sides on betamax tape
      and betamax has higher resolution than vhs
      i think it was 320-240 vhs and betamax was 480-360
      Vhs won because it was cheaper
