I was given my first CD Player and CD (Mariah Carey) for Christmas
Compaq Desktop Computer
Being in middle school, my uncle got my family a large, boxy Compaq Desktop computer
We had the internet! It was dial-up and extremely slow. We also used AOL and AIM (AOL Instant Messenger). where we could leave "away" messages. If the phone rang, we lost internet connection.
My first phone
A Nokia cellphone was the first one I had. The reason I got it, was because I had my license and was after school for sports, clubs, meetings, and work. The only game on it was "Snake" and you had to hit each key multiple times for certain letters.
This was a music program to download music and keep it in one place- usually to add to an iPod or burn a CD.
One of the first social media pages made available with a public or private profile where you could "add" friends, add music, message one another and add pictures.
My First Flip Phone
I bought my first flip phone that took pictures and had more games than Snake like the Nokia.
I was convinced at work at the restaurant one night to set up a Facebook account even though it was for college students.
First Phone with a Keyboard
This was my first phone where there was an actual keyboard when you slid the "cover" upwards to reveal it.
