Engadget in 1985

Hi guys! It's the *new* Fred the Fop, here with a really fun page.
Look at this....some clever and witty fellow at Engadget imagined what their cool website would be like in retrograde fashion.

http://www.engadget.com/2005/08/22/engadget-1985/

I love the Nokia Talkman (11 pound cellphone).
Then there's the New Amiga 1000, and notice how the images are grainy and the headlines are in BBS ASCII form. I love it!

Excellent stuff

Besides Talkman there's Fuji ES-1 digital camera that saves images to 3.5-inch floppy disks

Thanks for that, 'New' Fred! It was a fun read.

Regarding phones, 5h00n4y, as I've just said to my brother and to my friend, at least back then you didn't need hands the size of a little girl's in order to press the keys!

Nice one Fred!
I wish ASCII art would not only exist in these funny 'file_id.diz' thingies nowadays...
