hot techology items from the 80’s

engadget.com put together a page of hot technology items from the 1980s and wrote the descriptions as if it were the 1980’s.

Here’s an example. It’s the description of a portable phone:

re probably best known for their tires, but lately Finnish industrial conglomerate Nokia
s been making a big push into the wireless biz with its Mobira subsidiary (best of luck with that, Nokia!). Mobira just introduced its latest ultraportable cellphone, the Talkman (positively no relation to the Walkman, so don
t sue, ok, Sony?); clocking in at a mere 11 pounds, this bad boy will have you walking and talking in no time. Too heavy? Just have a junior exec carry it around for you!”
