A couple years ago, Lenovo announced its plans to build a "retro" ThinkPad that would resurrect design elements of ThinkPads past as an homage to the brand's long history.

That ThinkPad is now real. Check out the ThinkPad 25, sold to commemorate 25 years of ThinkPads.

I'm just going to leave this here for you lovely ThinkPad people. This isn't for me, but I'm not here to ruin your party.

Do clean up after yourselves.

I remember Netscape Navigator in the mid-90s; most websites then were simple text files with a bit of HTML mark-up; these days, the opening HTML at the beginning that you don't even see is bigger than some web pages were back in the 90s. The old websites had small images (if any) because the owners probably only had a few megabytes to host their sites with; these days, sites are designed for browser windows that are bigger than screens were then. Even then, they were often slow to load, pictures doubly so, and those Java applets took interminably long.
