They are in color now? (Hey, it's been 21 years since I saw mine!)

Very cool - enjoy and congratulations!

Not quite in color (more like a colored monochrome...), but they come in three dimensions now. Quite impressing (and touching, I daresay...)

Quite away from being a granddad, I hope (first, my daughter needs to turn 2 ;))

My congrats!

So many things have changed since I was young and I and sure many here remember when mobiles first came out very big and only if you were rich you could get one even PCs big, slow and crap and dial up that was so slow it took most of the day to load a page

I think I would pass on that and the inevitable virtual walk through model as well. :)

Oh yeah bro, I remember those days of dial up and a minute or more to even connect to the internet.

I remember downloading stuff and having to do it in the middle of the night to not tie up the phone all day and also it would take 12 hours to download a 200 mb file to a hard drive that was 1 gig or so. lol

As for mobile I remember spending $400 on a Nokia flip phone that had 2 screens on it. It was crap compared to todays phones but top of the line in those days. lol Now I use a rooted lg g3 with 3 gigs of ram and a quad core cpu! My phone has 10 times more power than my pc did back in those days. lol

##Hey, if you go back far enough they used to take those sonograms using a Polaroid. :eek:

1G drive, sheesh I remember playing around with computers that had "modern" tape drives. It was big news when my dad got an IBM PC, with 2 5.25 drives and a whole 20MB of hard drive space and paid extra for the 640K of RAM. I also remember the crap I got into when I accidentally formatted the drive.

My dad had one of the original car phone where the craddle was litterally screwed or bolted into the floor of the car, sort of like in the image below.

I remember when the first cell phones came out and they were HUGE! My best friend & I drove around in a beat up rusted Volvo with a land line phone held up to our ears freaking out other drivers. We were 16. lol.
