Knoppix was one of the first Linux "live CDs / DVDs" around that was usable. We think nothing today of being able to boot from a removable drive, but back in the day it was unusual and Knoppix was one of the first that came with a good suite of desktop tools.

Pic is a Brother word processor. While we had a family computer early on, the word processor - this integrated behemoth with printer, screen, keyboard, floppy disk storage etc... was more or less my first kinda sorta PC of my own. Ours wasn't this model I don't think but close. It had hard coded word processing support and fancier ones even had something akin to a spreadsheet or database option, bujt I never used those features. I used it for elementary school work and for writing little stories about my pets and stuff.

Remember that back in the day even these were expensive and PCs were a fuckload more so, but word processors like these were the step between a typewriter and a full on computer.

My dad bought a Sony Clie T615C from Costco for $199 (it was one of those clearance impulse buys). He could never figure out how to use Graffiti, so he didn't really use it. Rather than return it, he gave it to me. It came in that early 2000s Sony blueish-purple. I was so enthralled by it. Sure, there were more impressive devices (Palm had the Tungsten T3 and the PSP was just around the corner), but I thought it was really neat to have a pocket-sized touchscreen computer. In retrospect it was a little bit limited; while it had a memory stick expansion slot, it could only handle a maximum of 128 MB (I had a 64MB card that worked, but it would not recognize the 1 GB card I used in my PSP) and could not play MP3s. Eventually I bought a Palm T|X, but my Clie is still in a drawer at my parents' house.

I remember getting the Gameboy Advance for my 12th birthday in 2002 and feeling nothing but disappointment. It spent most of its time in a drawer. The major drawback was the shit screen and lack of backlighting. I recently bought one of those IPS conversion kits for the GBA, soldered the screen in, and now I quite like it. It really needed some kind of lighting right from the get-go.

The PSP was absolutely mind-blowing in 2004. I didn't get one until the hard mods had come out and were somewhat useful. I think I bought maybe two UMD-based games, the experience of playing both games and movies off the memory stick was so superior (load times easily cut in half, battery life increased by about 20-25%)

I used to love going through the shelves at Office Depot or Staples, to see all the cool gadgets. When I was in 7th grade my parents eventually got me one, this badboy with a backlight screen and everything.

Among other creative writing or taking down notes for maps I wanted to make in Duke3d, my friend and I would pass it to one another and write stories about shooting up the school and murdering our friends, which was endlessly entertaining and hilarious to us. This was after Columbine too. It's nothing short of serendipity that we were never caught, or the one time it was confiscated the teacher didn't read the stories.

Yeah, Handspring was started by a group of engineers who worked at Palm (or 3Com at the time I suppose). I remember they had quite the following for a while, quite an innovative company. You remember the Treo? That was Handspring's idea. Having a combo cellular phone / PDA with a touchscreen in 2002 was alien level technology at the time (my dad eventually warmed up to Palm devices after trying a Treo 650, after which he bought a Treo 700p). Even as a kid, I got the impression that Palm sort of made flaky, unreliable, overpriced hardware that was bested by Sony and Handspring. But by the time I bought my T|X, Palm was the only game in town. Overall the T|X was fine, but a lot of the novelty had worn off by that point, and there were other devices that were better (although I teased my early adopting iPhone friends that my simple handheld with a 1990s operating system could still copy and paste)

Ah yes, the "play Tetris in class" calculator

Yeah, it was quite a different feeling seeing store shelves back then. There was a lot more innovation. Now, we've sort of settled into a pattern, and more or less all the devices do the same thing.

I was going to post this if it hadn't been posted. I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one here who had them. Me and a couple of friends had all of them. Fun times. I wish I still had mine, I wonder how the general public would react to taking those around stores now days and scanning everything.

what was the range on that anyways? back then, I always thought it would be rad to own one because I'd be able to text message friends back before we had phones. Now I readily have the ability to text friends and basically never do.

God these were awful.
Shit screen even for the time, crappy sound, and very few good releases which came out in a trickle. The commercials promised so much. Zoomers don't know how good they have it.
Nostalga'd hard. I used to make these all the time. We even used to cut out a mouse if we wanted to get fancy.
Also totally forgot about these. I remember winning one in a school raffle, the games were actually quite fun.
They were garbage then as now. The prints were so bad you could barely distinguish between faces. I much preferred pic related.

this thread reminded me that i got a breadbox C64 in it's box given to me by someone my parents knew since they knew i was into computers
unfortunately, this was in 2004 and i was 14, so things older than about 386 dos pcs were outside my knowledge, i threw it out
in my defense, i had only the c64 and box, not even a psu, so i couldn't use it as it was
it just looked so useless, and none of the ports were familiar
