    We always had a radio and usually a telephone. Then around 1952 or 53 we got a television for a while. Around 1959 we got a stereo record player. That was about it until the nineties when home computers became easily available. Considering I almost burned down the house playing Lemmings I'm not sure that was an advancement.
    Now I have two laptops, one desktop, two tablets, a cell phone, a really nice HD flat screen television that  where I stream both television and movies, an mp3 player, and a wonderful TI-84 Plus calculator that solves every possible math problem you can think of. I love my second childhood...

    When I was a child the only technology I had was a TV and Nintendo. Those were the good old days, and I can remember spending a lot more time outdoors lol.

    There were no cell phones or personal computers when I was a child. Everyone's phone was hardwired to a wall in their home.
    Technology was having a TV, radio/stereo system, and a calculator.
    We had one TV for the whole household. In fact during my youth there was a certain time each night TV channels stopped broadcasting content.
    However all TV reception was FREE with no charges.
