If youâ€™re over twenty-five, or even (gasp!) above thirty, chances are youâ€™ve said to someone younger than you that they just donâ€™t understand how hard it was to be a kid before the year 2000 (which you also probably call Y2K). And itâ€™s true!
Kids today will never know what itâ€™s like to share a land line with their entire family, or what life is like without a cellphone. Although kids insist that theyâ€™re better off now since technology has advanced so quickly, there are a few things that theyâ€™re missing. Check a few of them out and let us know if you miss them too!

If you were born after the year 2000, youâ€™ll never understand what dial-up internet was. Anyone over 25 can tell you about the screeching noise that you had to listen to before surfing the web.
Of course, we canâ€™t forget the fact that if someone was expecting a phone call, you couldnâ€™t use the internet. It wasnâ€™t so bad though â€“ you could always play some games on your Gameboy Color to pass the time.
