Back in the day, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the Atari 2600 was king, and 1 GB of hard drive space couldn't even be fathomed in anyone's wildest imaginations, people used things like floppy discs, brick-sized cell phones and had these funny little boxes that would make whirring and grinding noises before allowing us to spend 10 minutes waiting for AOL.com to tell us we had mail. Times have definitely changed as technology has gotten more powerful, faster and more accessible to the lay person, but these relics of days gone by are fun reminders of the progress we've made.
To celebrate the days of yore, CafePress.com has launched a new line of geek related merch, and they would like to award one of our readers with 2 awesome prizes -- a retro cell phone coffee mug and an 'old school' floppy disk t-shirt, as seen here:
To enter to win, all you need to do is email your name, mailing address (no PO Boxes and in the US only please) along with your shirt size to firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest will run until Wednesday, July 31.
Also, be sure to check out CafePress.com to see all the really cool stuff they have available and return some of the love they have shown us!
