When I had a Playstation One, I bought a mod chip online for $50 that allowed me to play games that I "Burned" myself...I would go rent a game at Blockbuster and burn a copy of it...and the mod chip made it work...
Once talked to a government guy. He had a 6 foot wide hard drive that spun at 10,000 RPM's. Held 1Megabyte of data. This was in the 90's. God forbid they transfer it to something else. Your government at work.
not kidding about that. as watching some made in the earlier 80s before my birth that made at the time was consider high tech then are ancient now. some people like to mock old os like ms-dos and apple classic because how far stuff advanced since then looks silly to them. like what the heck is finder and why the hell do i need to type everything in this thing called dos prompt?
4 ups, 2y,
True, DOS was my second language back in the 80's. Batch files drove just about everything. And then we got Windows 1.0 - black and white MS paint, with a mouse, woooohoooo!
true, by the late 80's every computer starting having a Graphical user interface to work with instead typing everything in at boot up. that and windows really didn't get good till windows 3.0 came out. before that the gui in earlier windows act like more of shell then a full Operating system. computers such as Macintosh and Commodore Amiga and Atari ST remain huge with people till the earlier 90s then it become Window's vs Macintosh.
I realize a movie is old when I expect someone broken down on the road to pull out an iphone and then realize they didn't have them back then, and phone booths used to be a real booth (will walls and a door and everything). *sigh* I miss rotary, landline phones...
Yes, it's really a dial phone. There's quite a selection of new and used ones on eBay. I like the ones that run off your house's electrical system, and the ad for the phone says NO BATTERIES NEEDED. LOL
