20 Very Specific Memories You Haven’t Thought About For 20 Years!

Our perception of time is pretty relative. On some days something that happened a year ago feels ancient – on others it feels like it just happened yesterday. The noughties are similar – on the one hand it was the „new millennium“, and so it can’t have been that long ago. On the other hand, most kids born in the early noughties already have a driver’s license now…

Sometimes, specific memories help to give you the right perspective – such as the ones we’ve listed below: 20 things from the noughties that you haven’t thought about for ages!

#1 You needed CD-ROMs to install games – several, in fact!

#2 Those flat EarPods that came with your iPod

#3 These woolen socks that served as an iPod case

#4 iPod Transmitters that never really worked


#5 Hilary Duff’s „Stuff” clothing line

#6 Microsoft’s Zune Player

#7 The first mobiles with a color screen
