Remember the early days of cell phones and internet? Our worries were far simpler than available WiFi connection on your smart phone or how fast that file can load from your Dropbox. For today’s #throwbackthursday, we’re taking it back to the early days of cell phone and internet stresses vs. today’s.
Then: I want to use the Internet, but my mom is on the phone.
Now: So many of us are using the WiFi at the conference that the network isn’t as fast.
Then: I didn’t get to the phone by the last ring and have no idea who called.
Now: Who is this random number from Tampa, FL calling me?
Then: They didn’t leave me a voicemail.
Now: They left me a voicemail.
Then: My AOL connection is stuck on Step 2.
Now: I have to load this Website in basic HTML. Ughhh.
Then: All of my friends on AIM are away.
Now: All of my friends on G-chat are idle.
Then: My parents are mad at me because I went 548 text messages over my limit.
Now: Ugh, why did this send as a text message and not an iMessage?
Then: I can’t beat my high score on Snake on my Nokia 3310.
Now: I wish I never downloaded Candy Crush.
Then: I can’t decide which emoticon to use; a wink or a smile?
Now: I can’t decide which emoticon to use; a wink, a half smile, a smirk, a big grin, a cat smiling, a cat laughing or a cat crying?
Then: There aren’t enough ringtones.
Now: There are so many ringtones I can’t decide.
