Want to see how far technology has come in the last 20 odd years? Check out this advert from the US electrical retailer Radio Shack from 1991. Nearly everything you can see is available today…… on your iPhone!!!!!
If you have a look at the advert you will see that they are selling (separately!), amongst other things, a clock, a radio, a video recorder, a calculator, a camera, a video camera, a scanner, a cd player, earphones, game player, tape recorder, an answer machine… oh and a telephone!!!
OK, there's a speaker and a CB radio and I don’t have a huge speaker on my iPhone, but I can easily attach one, nor do I have a CB radio, but again, I have all the social media I need to interact with others from my phone 'good buddy'!
Apparently all the goods on the page would cost about $3,000 back in the day, which is the equivalent of about $5,000 today!
Compete Or Get Beat!
