Technology has certainly changed for the better. So much so that today’s kids will never have to deal with the technologies that we had to. However, back then, it was all that we had and so we treasured it because it furthered our dedication to music and other arts. We had to dedicated ourselves to this music and go out to purchase the CD and the device that plays it. This was the same for all forms of media because it wasn’t so readily available as it is to kids today. Therefore, these are the things that kids today will never have to deal with.
1. CD Radio player.
We used to have to carry this around if we wanted to amplify our music to those around us or just out loud to ourselves.
2. Portable CD player.
This was a more compact version that was more personal to us because we can play the music to ourselves and block out the world around us. But it’s still big compared to today’s devices.
3. Video Cassette Tapes.
All of our favorite movies took up this much space in our homes. Therefore, if you had a big movie collection, you had to have the room to put it!
