Do You Remember Technology?: Greeks, Gadgets, and Gizmos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remember the cell phones that weighed enough to serve double duty as a bludgeon? What about the first time you saw an Apple IIsi, or heard the THX sound check? And who could forget the inimitable hiss and whirr of an 8-track loading up? The ultranostalgic team behind Do You Remember TV? is ready to take you back on another sentimental road trip down memory lane with their latest, Do You Remember Technology? You'll find it complete with the smart-aleck sensibility, eye popping design, and trademark visual puns that sold over 100,000 copies of their first two books. In this one, we see the technological world of yesterday that has become the glamorous and successful belle of the millenium ball. Get ready to revisit the laughable roots of today's wizardry and reminisce over doohickey's of decades past?when Pong was a gnarly challenge, 0.7734 viewed upside down on a calculator cracked you up, and vacations was a time when you couldn't be contacted. Do You Remember Technology? is a must have for everyone from media junkies and web slaves to those who yearn for the good old days of typewriters and rotary phones.
