Cell Phones – How Cell Phones Have Changed


Below is a video of an ad that was aired back in 1989.  Yes, that was a long time ago.Get Smart

The ad is by Radio Shack and its is promoting portable cell phones.

You’ve got to see it.

While it is comical thinking back to those days and in seeing people lug a big box around with them – the term”portable” has been redefined – I’m still waiting for them to rip off Maxwell Smart’s shoe phone from the days of TV series Get Smart.

I always thought that was the most ingenious location and do so more today.

How many times does one lose, misplace, or have their shoes stolen?



Oh well.  Enjoy the trip down memory lane.
