30 Old School Problems That Are No Longer Relatable

Published 6 months ago

Today’s kids have it pretty easy when it comes to technology – mainly because they didn’t have to struggle with the same problems most of us used to. I’m talking about running out of space in your 512 MB mp3 player or having to delete text messages from your “button phone” one by one. And even though they may seem hilariously obsolete now, that’s what most of us had to face daily in the good ol’ early 2000s.

What we have for you today is a collection of old school problems that will take you a good 15 years back in time. Flip phones with internet-dedicated buttons, burning your own CD’s and the nightmare that was Limewire – check out all the obsolete problems from the past in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
