This high-tech calculator was a game changer. This was before iPhones and Androids and the other technology we have today. And do you remember cheating by putting the answers in the cover? No? Just me I guess.
No more walking around the house with a long cord after you. Do you remember knocking things over and getting in everyone's way? The cordless phone allowed you to stay up all night gabbing with your girlfriends without having a phone in your room. And if you had Caller ID then you were clearly a baller.
You had to have plastic furniture in your room because it looked so cool. Sure it looked great, but in reality it was so uncomfortable. It was sweaty and hot and it made terrible noises whenever you moved in it.
