21 Things Anybody Under 16 Won’t Believe About How We Used The Internet

What's An iPhone?

The telephone is another household device that is almost unrecognizable now, compared to in its early years. There was also no such thing as an iPhone, a Blackberry or a Samsung Galaxy. In fact, the majority of household telephones were attached to their bases via a spiral cord (and you could always tell how old the phone was by how much the cable had stretched out). What's more is internet and phone lines were one back then, and the only way to use the internet was to tie up the phone line using a little something called dial-up. If you were cool enough, you had your own phone line, complete with a see-through phone and colored spiral cord.
