    In this thread we'll share random, unusual, silly, amusing, or just plain strange photos.

    I'll start with this fellow who was making himself at home on a limestone bench in my garden this morning.

    It's 1987, and notice there is a Hands Free voice/data interface that will link to Tandy laptop computers for $69.95. This is a smart phone!

  9. I remember buying a Motorola MicroTac in Australia in 1992 for $1500, much smaller than the original brick pictured above, but if you factor in for inflation, unbelievably expensive to have the convenience/satisfaction/ability to make/receive mobile calls back in the day when they were far and few between. Not many people had mobile phones in Aus in '92. Now a bit older maybe patience and less of a need to get/receive a call would prevail.
