I was 18 years old when I got my first pager and it was the clear/translucent one and I thought I was the coolest person on earth. It was $10/mo or $30 every 3 months. Surprisingly, I could not find one single picture of the ‘clear beeper’ anywhere on Google. Anyways…I loved my pager and all the cryptic codes for your friends, (and the not so cryptic 911/411).
It wasn’t until 1998 that I got a cell phone and once again I thought I was the coolest person on the planet. Why? Because my cell had the bottom flip that everyone on TV had.
But then came Nextel and the very cool ‘walkie-talkie’ phone. Yep I had that one too and you guessed it, I was the cool kid again.
In 2005 Motorola came out with the Razor. At this point in time I was not priveledged enough to own one of these technological miracles. I was at a bar with some friends and when this guy came over to talk to us, he pulled out his new Razor and asked if any of us had ever seen one. Yes, he was that cheesy but I didn’t care, I was SO impressed and asked to see it. You could say I was a bit envious. I didn’t get a Razor until a year later.
I say telepathic messages.
By the way…have you seen the new Google Glasses?
