    I remember 5.25" floppies. We had a whole bunch of them in to the early 90s. Had quite a few good programs on them.

    I wonder how many of the kids even experienced non-optical mice. I remember getting an optical mouse in 2000 (a very awesome Logitech Mouseman Wheel optical), and they quickly took over.

    If I get kids, they`ll know about the ancient technology. And I`m not only talking about PS3s, I`m talking NES or maybe even Atari 2600. Walkmen, C64s, really old Bang & Olufsen recivers and whatever. This is why I don`t throw things away.

    Those kids are maybe in fifth grade. Why would you EXPECT them to know what anything was? I`m sure if you put a CD in front of them and asked what it was called, a good few wouldn`t know.

    no i think that the people hate the french is because during world war 2, they allowed the germans to invade without a single shot fired. your government at that time signed the surrender paper in the same traincar as the treaty of versailles. everyone thinks that youre cowards only because you lost just about every war since napolean lost at waterloo. with the help of another country, youre able to win.
    im not taking sides in this matter only becuase its just something stupid to fight over

    Look the reason why these kids dont know what this poo is is because its technology that never really was a inpact as much as things are made out to be today. YEAH they were amazing for there time but things in the 80`s were more about going forward in innovation then just praising tech for what it was... Im young but I can imagine tech has evolved quickly enough to ever surpass my knowlege of it... Some of the things I see my nieces use alone for there age blow my mind. But to the point there going faster and faster with poo to the point where that generation was shadowed by the quick advances....

    It`s ok with the cliché of the dirty smelly french with a hairy girlfriend. Every country gets this kind of jokes and it doesn`t offend us really because we know it`s not true.

    But why do americans always have to bash every french thing on the internet and ALWAYS talk about WW2 ?
    I just don`t get it.
    France fought and lost the war, then was saved by the US and the UK. That`s a fact nobody tries to hide. That is what is tought in french schools. We don`t need a reminder.
    I really don`t understand why you need to hate a country your country helped when they were losing a war 70 years ago.

    And yes, they`re canadian.
