Tech Memories anyone ?

Talking to a friend a few days ago and how Tech has advanced over the years, I got my first mobile phone in 1993 on the Orange network, the contract was £35.00pm and I got 15 free minutes, in those days the phones got smaller year on year and the battery lasted about a week, today they get bigger year on year and the battery lasts about a day, the two networks prior to 1992 were Vodafone and Cellnet and you had to be either very rich or your business paid for it to own a phone, Orange came...

Now he is not selling anything he suggests strip roof...
