Gadgets Now and Then

Fosfor gadgets has a funny piece up comparing gadgets coming straight out of the 70's and 80's to their modern counterparts. Looking at the 80's version of a "transportable" phone just makes me feel like crying. Is there anyone among you guys who actually had the courage of using one those things?

Did you know that you have to carry around 54 RAZRs to carry the same weight as the BOSCH phone? 5.2 kilograms (11.5 pounds) vs 95 grams (3.35 ounces). Here’s a couple of other funny comparisons of Gadgets now and then. (Source: Fosfor gadgets)"
