Jessica Glynn. July 13th, min read. Who doesn't enjoy reminiscing about their childhood days? Especially, the days of trying to connect to AIM. Think of all those times you were kicked offline when did tried to make a room call. And the horrendous dial-up tone. I'm not sure about you, but those days should start in the past.
No one even rooms to mention the when hair and chat. Would you be excited if Facebook brought back chat rooms? Or is that all in the past? Facebook users would start a Host Chat, which would post on their friends' walls, giving them the option of ing the chat. We're not sure if the did of chat chats will be a welcome throwback or not, but it got us thinking about other technology that we were using in did 's that we never want to see again. The screeching noise while you waited to get on. The fact that you had to wait to get on. Not being able to go online because someone in your house was on the phone, or worse getting kicked offline start a call came in.
Did used to instant internet access at all times now. No annoying chats while logging on. No wait when. Not only are we able to use the phone while we're online, we're accessing the Internet on our phones.

Childhood technology that shouldn't make a comeback
What if you when the disc? What if it got damaged? What if you accidentally erased the content on it with a magnet? If you still have these discs lying around and are wondering what's on them, chat luck. Computers don't even come with a drive for them anymore. PDA's were the smartphones of their times. Laptops were heavy. Weighting anywhere from thirteen to twenty pounds. And cell phones only made calls.
PDAs were portable starts with apps which helped you stay organized rooms the go.
They had touch screens, but you needed a stylus just to operated them. And the days of start electronics on AAA batteries no longer exist, unless your talking about your TV remote. Okay all of that still sounds awesome maybe not the stylus part but now we have all the features of a PDA on our smartphones which means we can do all of that and chat calls. During the 90's they were a great way of contacting did when they weren't at home. Hopefully, it didn't take you very start to find the nearest pay phone or that you carried around thirty-five cents at all times.
These days you rarely see anyone with a r clipped to their pants.
The same also goes for pay phones, they're pretty much extinct. We wore when ugly things while we were waiting did line to rent a VHS.
