Ah, technology. What’s new today will most likely be old by tonight, which is why it’s so fun to look back at “must have” goodies that we felt compelled to buy to keep up with the times.

Remember computers that were so big they could fill your living room? Or cell phones so large it was probably easier to just walk around with your own phone booth? Or when beepers went from being used by doctors to drug dealers and very sketchy kids in your homeroom? Well, now you can, thanks to this walk down memory lane.

And keep your eye out for Leonard Nimoy. That ad might just make your whole day.
