1990s nostalgia

Back home I was doing some clean-up of old electronic devices and found a solid reminder of 1990s—our first-ever mobile phone—Siemens S3 Com. And I got nostalgic. Back then, having a mobile phone was a some sort of luxury. Devices were expensive, no free texts or minutes, charges were applied to incoming calls, network coverage was poor. And those phones...huge, heavy (could be used for self-defense purposes), battery did not last long (a day maybe?).

Siemens S3 Com

Our phone was bought back in 1997 (3 GSM companies in poland kicked-off their services), and for me—despite its size and limited functionality—it was biggest technology advancement. The phone was doing what it was designed to do: making, receiving calls and sending text messages. Nowadays phones seem to be just an addition to the devices that we currently use. The old phone also shows, how technlogy has moved forward. I decided to keep it as a legacy; now it is sitting next to 1930s Continental portable typewriter.

One more thing....back in 1990s, music didn't suck...
